If you don’t check your air conditioner every now and then, repairs will get a lot more costly. Though some of the checks need an expert, there are a few checks you can do on your own. You should check the filters monthly, and make sure that no debris is clogging it up. Make sure there is enough room around the conditioner for proper airflow to occur. Check your thermostat frequently, and if you see any issues with it, it is crucial to get it fixed right away.
- A clogged or dirty filter can cause system malfunctions and it also sends dirt and dust into the air you breathe.
- Check the temperature and settings on your thermostat every week to make sure it is functioning efficiently.
- Keep large pieces of furniture away from vents to maximize the airflow in the room.
“It’s not quite the same as the inspection required yearly for your vehicle, but it is just as important to perform an inspection on your home’s air conditioning system at least once a year.”
