How To Maintain Air Condition

By Alf Rainer

One of the very finest techniques to economize in the summertime is to have an air conditioner that works really well. There are 1 or 2 techniques to be sure that your air conditioner works very well this summer, which may keep your folks from being forced to cope with any hot-house damaged AC days and will save you cash eventually.

A way to confirm your air conditioner stays in fine condition is to have a pro come in for a maintenance appointment every year before the cooling season. This might appear like a pointless cost, it can keep you from being forced to really pay to fix your air conditioner, which can be dear and provoking.

Besides this, keeping up on your air conditioner maintenance can keep the whole system clean, and it can give you some notice about when things might need replaced. That way, you can at least see it coming when an expensive repair might be in your near future or when you might need to replace your air conditioning system.

Another way to keep your AC in good shape is to run it less often. Throughout the summer, you can go easy on your air conditioner by setting your thermostat up a little bit higher, which can also save on your energy costs, of course. Besides this, you can keep your south-facing windows covered by curtains or blinds, which can help keep your rooms much cooler even without the air conditioner. Also, putting exhaust fans in your warmest rooms and running ceiling fans along with your air conditioning system can help you save on air conditioning and run your system less.

You can also keep your system working less by shading the actual air conditioner if it is outside of your home. Make sure that you don’t plant anything too close to the box, but put trees or tall, decorative grasses around the air conditioning box that will keep it cooler so that it has to work less. Besides making your air conditioner work less, this can also hide that unsightly metal contraption from the comfort of your back yard.

If you are building a place from the start or totally redoing your HVAC system, you may use this same idea to keep your air conditioner cooler. Put the air-con unit on the northern side of your house where it is going to be shaded for most of the day, particularly in the hottest parts of the day. This way, you can keep your AC in the shade while not having to depend on the landscaping.

Although you’ll always have to replace your AC system in a timely fashion, you’ll be able to keep it in better shape for longer if you can keep it from running quite as hard. Keeping your AC maintained on a regular basis will also help it stay in better shape. Taking all these simple steps can save you lots of money in air conditioning costs, and it can also help save you from expensive air conditioning repairs.
