Keep Your Cool: AC Maintenance to Prevent Costly Breakdowns

As summer heats up and air conditioning in your home is one of the best ways help to cool down. Prevention is the key though to avoiding an air conditioning emergency in the hottest parts of summer.

Clean Your Coils – Dirt buildup can cause machinery to work harder. Be sure to clean the outside coils on air conditioning units at the beginning of the cooling season as well as before the peak of the cooling season.

Check for Insect/Animal Nests –  If you leave your air conditioner outside use an air conditioner cover and before the cooling season make sure to inspect it  for any wasp or bees’ nests inside.

Replace Moisture Filters – If the air conditioner shows moisture in the system have your system serviced and have new filters and driers installed.

Check for Leaks – Leaks not only affect the operation of the air conditioner but are harmful to the environment.

Preventing a costly breakdown of air conditioning during the hot summer months can help give you peace of mind but be sure to check with your insurance agent to make sure you have proper coverage for your home and all of your equipment.
