Top 3 Mistakes You’re Making With Your Air Conditioner

Failing to properly maintain your air conditioner unit can result in several problems, such as higher energy bills, decreased system efficiency, effectiveness and safety. It can also cause health problems such as the transfer or bacteria and microorganisms, asthma and allergies. Thus, it is important to avoid these top 3 mistakes to get the benefits of an efficient AC unit:

1. Not Cleaning or Changing AC Filters

The most important maintenance task to ensure your AC system will be running efficiently is to clean and routinely replace your AC filters. The filters help to remove dust and allergens that passes through the system. Dirty and clogged filters block normal airflow and will significantly decrease your AC unit’s performance and efficiency.

Not replacing dirty/clogged filters can reduce your AC’s energy consumption by 5-15% so make it a point to routinely clean or replace them!

2. Ignoring To Clean Coils

When AC coils get covered with dirt and grime, it weakens the heat transfer process and cooling capability. Dirty coils reduce your system’s efficiency, costing you money and impacting on your indoor air quality.

Evaporator and condenser coils are delicate and very expensive parts to replace. It is best to have them cleaned by a professional cleaner because using the wrong tools or chemicals can result in costly damage.

3. Not Having Your AC Unit Serviced Annually

According to cooling professionals, even if your AC unit is working properly and you do not suspect for problems, you need to have it serviced and inspected at least once a year. This will prolong the life of your unit and ensures maximum efficiency, ensuring you stay compliant to health and safety rules and regulations.
