Making Your Air Conditioner Last

At Protocool Cooling Solutions, we know how costly it can be to have your air conditioner unit repaired after a breakdown. Things even get pricier if the breakdown is severe enough that it warrants a complete replacement. To make things easier for you and your wallet, we’ve put together this list of tips that should help you extend the life of your air conditioner.

Change your air filters. One of the most common reasons for an AC repair call is due to an air filter that’s choked with dust and dirt. Allowing your air conditioner’s filter to get to this state means that it’s working twice, if not three times, as hard to do the same amount of work as with a clean filter. Dirty filters place a lot of needless wear and tear on your AC unit’s components. By changing air filters regularly you can prevent this from happening.

Ensure that air can flow freely in your home. This means making sure that your individual room’s supplies and returns are wide open and free of any obstruction. Vents and grilles should also be clear of any blockages. By doing so you not only preserve your air conditioner’s function by allowing it to work efficiently and easily, but also prevent unpredictable hot or cold spots in your home.

Protect your outdoor unit from dirt and the elements. If your cooling system is the type that requires an outdoor unit, then you need to make sure it’s adequately protected from whatever Mother Nature can throw at it. Have roofing and fencing installed to shield the unit from the sun. Clear away any debris, loose dirt and overgrown grass that could clog the components inside. You can also install the unit on a raised platform to keep it dry in a heavy rain or flood conditions.

Get your AC unit professionally serviced and maintained regularly. To maintain peak performance, your AC unit should be checked and maintained by a professional on an annual basis. This not only helps extend the lifecycle of your AC by having its components cleaned and re-tuned, it can also help detect problems before they can become a serious issue.

By applying these four tips, your air conditioner should run perfectly and without issue for a long time to come. But when it is time for some preventive maintenance, or when you do have an issue, be sure to contact Protocool Cooling Solutions and have us handle it. With our years of extensive experience and expertise in cooling solutions we’ll make sure your AC unit is in peak condition and able to serve you for years.
