How do I Maintain my Air Conditioner Throughout the Year?

Michigan is home to humid summers. An air conditioner does a lot of work to keep your home cool and lower the humidity. By maintaining your air conditioner throughout the year, you can expect to have a unit that works more effectively and efficiently while extending its lifespan. If you want to get more out of your AC unit, there are many ways you can maintain it to work better.

We also provide our customers with the best information to make sure they keep proper care of their HVAC units throughout the year. Air conditioning is a crucial aspect to your home during the humid summers. Here are our tips on maintaining your air conditioner throughout the year.

DIY Maintenance for Your AC Unit

There are many small things that you can do to maintain your AC unit throughout the year. One small thing you can do is change your filter. A clogged filter will restrict the airflow and make it harder for your unit to effectively cool your home. This will lead to higher energy bill costs because your unit is working much harder than it needs to.

Clearing debris from the outside of your unit can also help improve the airflow. Typically, AC units come in two parts and there is an outdoor portion to your unit. This outdoor portion tends to collect a lot of dust, dirt, and leaves. Making sure it is clean will help optimize the airflow for your unit.

While there are many small things you can do to maintain your AC unit, nothing beats calling a professional once a year. Every year before the weather starts to get too hot, be sure to give an HVAC contractor a call. At Applegate, we are focused on maintaining units and making sure they are ready to run throughout the summer.
