Do-It-Yourself Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

If you want a well-functioning air conditioner, preventative maintenance is key. That’s because maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of your air conditioner, and keep it running smoothly. And, did you know that there are plenty of AC maintenance to-do’s that you can check off the list yourself…without consulting an HVAC technician?

Here is your tried-and-true DIY air conditioner maintenance checklist:

  1. Check the filters. Checking and cleaning your filters is one of the most crucial steps in any service checklist. You should do this at least once per month; replace them when necessary. Otherwise, your AC’s filters will become clogged with debris and dust, which can lead to disrepair.
  2. Check your thermostat. Always check your thermostat to ensure that it is adjusted properly. Also, by turning your thermostat a few degrees lower or higher (depending on the season), you can save energy and keep your system operating smoothly. Checking your thermostat is an essential part of any DIY AC maintenance checklist.
  3. Clean away any dirt or debris that you see inside your AC. You should always take the time to clean away any debris that is in or around your air conditioner.
  4. Schedule a maintenance check-up. The best way to ensure that your AC system is running efficiently is to schedule a professional maintenance check-up! This way, you can keep things running as smoothly as possible.
