Important Parts to Maintain in your AC

Caring for your equipment at home ensures your continued comfort and convenience. Take your air conditioner, for example. If you don’t properly clean and maintain it, you’ll find your home scorching hot in the dead of summer. Here are but a few of the important AC components that you should constantly be on the lookout for:

Air Filters

Dirty air filters could eventually cause your AC to malfunction and get easily worn down. You should clean or replace your filters at least once at the very beginning of the cooling seasons to avoid complications.

Evaporator/Condenser Coils

These coils are responsible for altering the temperature of the air that passes through them, making them invaluable to the regular function of your AC unit. Like the filters, you should also clean them at the beginning of the cooling season, but you should keep doing this at least once every succeeding month.

Power Cord

There are a host of ways in which the component that delivers electrical power to your AC could get worn down and become faulty. You should always check on the condition of the cord, and if there are rips or tears, consider getting an electrician to have it replaced.

Thermostat

Many AC problems spring from a faulty thermostat, since this component determines whether or not a particular room is already receiving adequate cooled air, or if it still needs more. Check the thermostat for any problems so you may have the problem repaired immediately.
