We rely very heavily on the central air conditioning in the summer months and it is the primary respite from the stifling weather which often turns sultry at the slightest chance. Hence it is not uncommon for air conditioners to develop a glitch. Here are some easy ways you can cut costs on ac repair with some maintenance.

  • Outdoor air condensers look hideous and a lot of homeowners have the tendency to stuff the area around it with flowering plants to hide it. You are forgetting the basic fact that air conditioners always need adequate air flow in order to perform at peak efficiency. Our recommendation is that any sort of landscaping should be done three feet away from their periphery.
  • Most outdoor air conditioner units are out of sight; this makes it easy for them to escape attention. They should be cleaned regularly of pollen and other man made debris that they suck in when the air is being pulled in. these particles if not cleaned will reduce airflow and cause overheating. Use a simple garden hose and direct the stream of water from the top of the unit to the bottom, and you will have done your maintenance for the weekend.
  • If it is a 2 story house in question, the upper floor will have a warmer temperature than the ground floor. A lot of homeowners try to balance the two temperatures by adjusting the air vent openings. If this happens and an air vent is shut off, the coils in the unit can freeze and the a/c can stop functioning. Be aware of this potential issue and do not completely close any of the registers (air vents).
  • Maintenance of an air conditioning unit requires maintenance of the airflow. This can only be achieved by changing the air filters at regular intervals as suggested by the technicians who installed the unit. Additionally, during summer, it won’t harm the budget if you spend a bit more on some more frequent air filter changes.
  • It is reasonable to assume that the lesser an air conditioner is used, the more it will be in shape. This can be affected by programming the temperature by the date and time of day if the ac comes with a programmable thermostat.
  • Keeping the sun out with the help of curtains and blinds is another way to cut down on the ac running time.
