Having your air conditioner properly checked and maintained on a regular basis can help you save money over time while keeping your unit working at its best. This also ensures that your air conditioning unit will last longer.
There are two major ways to carry out the proper maintenance of an air conditioner: having it checked by professional experts and doing it yourself. Below are brief overviews of the two major ways on how to properly maintain your air conditioner, courtesy of Brown Service Company, your local Fort Worth air conditioning company.
It is highly recommended to perform routine air conditioner maintenance once or twice a year to find potential problems and avoid expensive air conditioner repair costs. Routine maintenance should only be done by professional technicians to make sure that the job is carried out properly.
Typically, a check-up includes:
- oiling the fan motor
- cleaning the coils of the condenser unit
- flushing the drain line
- checking the coolant level
- a complete and thorough inspection of the unit.
These tasks require a lot of effort, time, skills, experience, and knowledge, which is why it’s practical to seek professional help. Brown Service can make sure that the job is done correctly and will save you from all the hassles that the job entails.
While the routine maintenance done by professionals is important, some air conditioner maintenance needs to be done by you, the homeowner. A few simple tasks like cleaning the condenser and the area around it and replacing filters can be easily performed by anyone in your household.
Most problems that homeowners experience with their air conditioning systems occur simply because the units are not routinely and properly maintained. If it is kept clean and free from dirt and clogs, your air conditioner will work properly and function better, giving you years of uninterrupted service.
However, you shouldn’t wait until your unit breaks down to call for service. Call Brown Service Company now and have one of our professional air conditioning technicians perform the necessary maintenance on your air conditioner system. Call us at 817-284-9204.
