The time for AC is right around the corner. As you get ready to feel cool inside your home again, make sure you follow these quick tips to keep your AC unit working at its intended efficiency.
1. Replace Filters Regularly
Having your unit provide clean air is essential. The best way to ensure your unit is doing its job right is by regularly replacing your filters. It’s a job you can do, or, if you feel more comfortable, it’s a task the pros at Arellano Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning LLC can take care of.
2. Straighten the Fins
The air conditioner unit’s fins are on the outside of the unit. They can become bent by the wind, inclement weather, accidental contact, or other reasons. To help the unit work efficiently, straighten out the fins.
3. Keep it Cool
As your air conditioner unit is keeping you cool, it’s imperative you keep your unit cool, too. Put your unit in a place where it will naturally stay in the shade or somewhere you can easily put up an umbrella or other structure to keep the unit out of the sun.
4. Keep it Clean
Over time, the outside of your unit is bound to get dirty. The solution is simple: turn out your outside water and hose it down. Make sure to clear everything from off your unit, as an unkempt unit won’t work as well as a clean one will.
