Air Conditioning Maintenance Checklist

Air conditioning maintenance is extremely important. If you want your air conditioning at its best performance, then regularly check and clean your air conditioning. Maintaining your air conditioning will prevent future problems and unwanted costs.

When performing maintenance on an air conditioning system there are five important things to check:

  1. Check the filters and indoor coil: Remove the air filters and clean them. Spray the filters on both sides with a kitchen antiseptic spray and then rinse with warm water. Remove dust built up on the filters.
  2. Check and clean the coil and air outlets on the outdoor unit: Remove obstructions around the outdoor unit to improve air flow.  Wipe down the air outlet on the front of the system. Check that you get good air flow through the system and that the coil is free of obstructions.
  3. 3.Check for good air flow from both indoor and outdoor units: Ensure you have plenty of airflow from the indoor unit. Poor airflow is a good indicator of a blocked coil or failing fan motor. If your air conditioner is struggling to output a reasonable amount of air, then it may be time to schedule a professional service.
  4. Check for signs of rust or corrosion: If your air conditioner is starting to rust or show signs of corrosion, then consider fixing it immediately. Minor rust caused from scratches can simply be painted over with a waterproof steel paint. Major rust or corrosion will require a professional to service the equipment.
  5. Check your system on both cooling and heating modes: Check your system on both cooling and heating modes. If your air conditioner fails to switch between the two different modes, then it is usually a good indicator of a fault with the reversing valve which will require repair by a professional.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioning System

The average household spends more than $2,500 a year on energy bills; $1,100 of that goes to heating and $1,400 goes toward keeping the home cool. This is a good amount of money, and if you are spending so much it is worth taking measures to get the most out of the air conditioning system.

Get the most out of your air conditioning system:

  1. Get a programmable thermostat: A programmable thermostat can save up to 15 percent on your cooling costs because the system activates only when needed. Every degree below 78 degrees raises your energy bill by 3 to 4 percent.
  2. Regular maintenance: Check your HVAC filter regularly. During summer, the filter will likely need to be washed or replaced at-least once a month. Clean the evaporator coils annually, straightening any bent ones.
  3. Shut some vents: Shut the vents in rarely used rooms so you’re not cooling them unnecessarily.
  4. Maintain your furnace: Central air uses the same blower and air ducts, so have annual service checks to make sure it’s running at its finest efficiency.
  5. Get air conditioner service every year: Air conditioners lose about 5 percent of their efficiency every year if you don’t have them serviced.
  6. Keep cool air in, hot air out: Prevent leakage of cool air by sealing around the HVAC unit and ducts, seams and connections. Wrap the ducts in insulation. If the ducts pass through an attic space, consider insulating that too.
  7. Close your windows and drapes during the day to exclude the hot air: Avoid opening windows and drapes during the day. Install interior or exterior blinds, shutters, shades or awnings, particularly on south-facing or west-facing windows.

When to Replace Your Air Conditioner

When an air conditioner does not function properly, we tend to think of repairing it.Repairing may seem to be the most affordable solution, but it might not be the best choice because eventually repairing costs can be more than replacing it. You need to replace your air conditioner when you see one or more of the signs mentioned below:

  • Repairing cost nearing 50% of the air conditioner value: When the cost of repairs approaches 50% of the value of your heating or cooling system, it is generally time to replace the system.
  • 12 years running: Many tend to think that air conditioning can run for decades and the manufacturer promises so. However, most air conditioners are not designed to last more than roughly 10 years. So, if your air conditioner is aging,better replace it.Replacing an aging and worn out air conditioner can actually have a number of benefits including increased energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and reduced carbon emissions.
  • Need for frequent repairs: If an air conditioner is showing need for frequent repair especially when those repairs get progressively more expensive, it is a sign that it is time for a replacement. Though it may cost more money for new air conditioning installation upfront, it saves money by eliminating the need for continuously costly repair.
  • Temperature inconsistencies:An air conditioner with temperature inconsistencies even after repaircan beanother sign for replacement.
