It is important to make sure that your air conditioning unit is properly maintained to help maintain its efficiencies and extend its service life. While some minor repairs and maintenance you may be able to perform yourself, oftentimes it is in your best interest to seek out an experienced AC contractor in Sonoma County.
Making sure that you have a clean air filter is paramount to your AC unit’s efficiency. A dirty air filter will limit the available flow of air, making your unit have to work harder to achieve the same results. On average, homeowners should expect to be changing their air filters from every 3 to 6 months or as otherwise directed by a professional.
When the weather begins to cool, it is a great time to examine the exterior of your air conditioning unit. Check the surface of the condenser to make sure that there isn’t any debris that will restrict the airflow. Usually, a quick wipe-down or a spray with the hose will be enough to remove any debris.
If you think that your AC unit needs a more thorough inspection, the winter is a great time to schedule for a reputable AC repair and maintenance specialist to come and inspect your unit.
When an AC maintenance specialist comes and inspects your unit, they will check for several things. They may inspect the condenser to make sure it is uninterrupted. Additionally they are likely to inspect the motor, looking for signs of wear and tear or any other damage that may not be outwardly visible to the untrained eye.
Like most machinery, some issues are only visible to the trained eye because they know exactly what to look for. At the end of the day, it is a worthwhile investment to schedule to have your AC unit inspected annually to ensure that any issues are stopped before they become larger problems.
