4 Off-Season AC Maintenance Tips You Need to Follow

Most people only think about their air conditioner during the summer months when it's hot, and they need it to keep cool. But did you know that you should also be thinking about your AC during the off-season? That's right. Even when it's not hot outside, you should still be taking care of your AC unit. Here are some tips on how to do just that.

1. Change Filters

It's essential to remember that you should change your air conditioner filters at least once per month. When it's hot outside and your AC unit is working overtime, you could be changing them as often as twice per month during the summer months. But during the colder months, when you aren't using your air conditioner as much, it's okay to change your filters every two or three months. If you can remember, try setting a monthly reminder on your phone, so you don't forget whenever is convenient for you.

2. Tune-Up Your System

If you have an older air conditioner, now is the perfect time for a tune-up. Not only will this make sure your air conditioner is working correctly, but it also helps save money because an AC tune-up can help you find problems before they become serious issues. During a tune-up, a professional HVAC technician comes to your home and inspects everything in your system to ensure that everything is working correctly. If the technician finds an issue, they can fix it immediately, but if there are no issues found, they will let you know about the current status of your AC system.

3. Clean Your AC

Sometimes ac units can get so dirty that they stop working properly. Dust, dirt, pet hair, and other debris can clog up the delicate parts of your ac unit, making it difficult for your ac to do its job. During this time of year, when you are not using your AC as much, now is a perfect time to clean it out. The AC will perform better, and the energy savings can be well worth it. The AC won't have to work as hard during warmer months to keep you cool.

4. Call a Professional

If you're still unsure about how to take care of your ac unit, then maybe it would be best to call a professional AC company that can do all of this for you. AC companies know what to do and offer a range of services that can help ensure your AC remains efficient all year round.

According to the Department of Energy, an ac unit in the United States has a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. Of course, it depends on how well you take care of it and how often you use it, but AC companies can help ensure your AC lasts as long as possible. Call us today to learn more.
