The only thing standing between you and those hot Berlin, MD, summer days is a well-functioning central air conditioner. Discover important maintenance tips that will knock off years of general wear and tear and help your bank account save money on those monthly power bills.

Schedule an Annual Tune-Up

You will save your HVAC system from dangerous wear and tear by getting everything checked once annually via a regular maintenance appointment. Your HVAC technician inspects the entire system to make sure all components are operating at maximum efficiency. For example, a tune-up does the following things:

  • Cleans the system
  • Tightens all electrical components
  • Lubricates vital connections
  • Inspects coolant levels

This type of air conditioner inspection diagnoses major problems that reveal themselves after years of HVAC operation. An example is a refrigerant leak that can lead to major AC repairs if left unchecked. Saving money on your energy bill is the end result of a tune-up because your HVAC system isn’t overworking and is operating efficiently.

Change the Air Filter

One of the things you can continuously monitor is how dirty your HVAC system’s air filter is. A dirty air filter results in compromised indoor air quality and also causes a reduction in system airflow. Poor airflow makes your air conditioner work too hard and often leads to problems that could have been avoided by simply replacing a dirty filter every 30-90 days.

Keep the Outside AC Unit Free From Debris

The outdoor condenser unit operates best when nothing is restricting it. Inspect it every once in a while to make sure there aren’t any leaves, tree branches, weeds or other obstructions that keep the fan from moving correctly. This will prevent mechanical and electrical problems that could shorten the life-span of your unit, saving you hassle and money down the road.

Your AC technician will also inspect vital parts like the compressor and coils during a tune-up appointment. This helps ensure optimal operation, reduces the chances that you need to install an entirely new HVAC system and lowers the possibility of a rising utility bill.

Are you concerned about your air conditioner performing well during the hottest days of the year? We encourage you to contact Griffith Energy Services technicians to schedule your AC tune-up appointment.
