Preventative AC Maintenance
The key to preventative maintenance for your AC is ensuring proper airflow. When the airflow is blocked, your air conditioner cannot work as efficiently, which raises your energy costs and wears down the parts. This is why changing filters, cleaning the coils, and clearing debris away from the outside components are among the most important maintenance tasks for homeowners.

If you aren’t sure where to locate your air filter, call one of our technicians. We should be able to tell you according to the brand and model number. Most air filters are located in wall or ceiling vents, or on the unit itself. Filters come in various sizes and efficiency levels, but you should buy the type of filter recommended by the manufacturer. Most manufacturers recommend changing or cleaning your air filters once a month during times of high use, especially if you have pets. Some filters only need to be changed every three months. Check the packaging if you aren’t sure how often to change it.
Did you know that your air conditioner needs regular maintenance to continue to work efficiently? Even if you have a brand new system, the air filters, coils, and fins need to be cleaned and inspected regularly for your AC to cool effectively. Neglecting maintenance will lead to a decline in performance and an increase in the amount of energy your unit uses.
Cleaning the Evaporator & Condenser Coils
Scheduling annual service with a trained professional is necessary to get the most out of your air conditioner, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some things you can do on your own. To promote maximum energy efficiency, avoid major problems and generally extend the life of your system, one of the most important things you can do is keep your evaporator and condenser coils clean.
While air filters prevent the coils from getting soiled, your AC coils will collect dust and dirt over time. Always turn off the power to your air conditioner whenever you clean the coils. If the electricity is left on, you run the risk of electric shock or other serious injuries. The indoor evaporator coils should be cleaned at least once a year since they will lose its ability to absorb hot air inside the home if they dirty. Because the outdoor condenser coils are exposed to the elements, they should probably be checked and cleaned more often.
Make sure you rake anything that could get trapped in the fins and clog the system, which includes lawn clippings, twigs, and leaves. Try to trim any nearby bushes or trees to minimize the risk of the limbs blocking the airflow to the outdoor components. If you have a packaged unit, both sets of coils will be located in the same place with the rest of the components. Call us if you need to know how to locate and clean your coils.
Professional AC Inspection & Cleaning
Even if you provide exceptional care for your air conditioning system, you will still need an HVAC specialist to perform a routine inspection and cleaning at least once a year. Many homeowners neglect to do this for a number of reasons. Most of the time, the reason is that the homeowner has just installed a new unit or there hasn’t been any problems with the AC. Although you may not have needed repairs or had any issues with your air conditioner’s performance, there could be hidden problems or warning signs.
Safety hazards are another concern that a professional can look for during one of these inspections. We thoroughly check every component for loose parts, faulty wiring, or anything that could create a hazard. We can also suggest ways for you to increase efficiency and ensure that your unit runs safely throughout the season. Don’t wait until your air conditioner stops working because of something we can take care of during a yearly check–up. Call today to schedule your annual maintenance visit.
