Spring is not for a couple months, but that doesn’t mean you can put off air conditioning and heating system maintenance. If you want to maximize your air conditioning and heating systems lifespan, optimizing your usage and repairs is a year-round job. It doesn’t have to be difficult, though—call your local Sarasota air conditioning and heating repair team when you have tough maintenance ahead (or if you just want to save yourself the trouble of handling AC and heating tasks on your own).
Regular maintenance right now goes a long way towards extending the life and efficiency of your system. For one thing, replacing your air filters is both easy, cost-effective, and crucial. As your heavy-usage seasons begins to wind down, you’ll want to replace your air filters to ensure your system stays efficient. We can check your refrigerant levels (to prepare for upcoming warm seasons) and your evaporator and condenser coils.
Trust the experts at Airrific Air Conditioning to perform your maintenance cleanings in a timely manner!
Keep Your Unit Clean
Since your unit is likely outdoors, make sure there isn’t any dirt or plant life gathering nearby. You’ll want to give it a wide berth on your property, maybe 2-3 feet all around. Trim plants, sweep dirt away, keep the area clean—this will reduce the possibility of contamination to your system. It will also give you some extra motive to clean your yard up a bit!
Check the insulation of your doors and windows as well. If your home is poorly insulated, your system is working harder to maintain the temperature. Causing that much constant stress to your air conditioning and heating system will result in a poor lifespan—requiring a costly replacement in a few short years, if your caulking or weather stripping is old, arrange to replace it as soon as possible to give your system a break.
Hiring an Expert for Complex Maintenance
There are dozens of small repairs and maintenance tasks your system needs to run smoothly—that’s why most experts recommend you service your whole system with a professional technician at least once a year.
