4 Ways To Avoid Destroying Your AC System

Your air conditioning unit should last for 15 or more years. However, a neglected unit can stop working after a mere seven years. At Del-Air, we are passionate about saving our clients money by preserving their air conditioners for the long haul. Here are 4 ways to avoid destroying your AC system and instead keep it running for years to come.

  • Seek Continuous Service

Hiring a highly-rated technician once a year to service your AC unit is the best way to prolong the system’s lifespan. Not only will a good contractor check system charges and refrigerant levels, but he or she will also clean condenser coils, examine blowers and motors, and brush out the electrical cabinet.

  • Change Filters

Experts advise changing the AC unit’s filter at least four times a year. Not only do dirty filters limit airflow, but they also affect cooling capacity. As a result, the system has to work harder to achieve the same results. As an added bonus, changing your filter regularly improves the quality of air your loved ones are breathing and can even reduce instances of asthma and allergies.

  • Don’t Change Temperatures

Constantly turning your AC up or down? This habit creates highs and lows, forcing the system to work harder and increasing wear and tear.

  • Look Out for Ice Build-Up on AC

If your AC unit is too small to cool your home properly—or trying to cool a home on an exceptionally hot day—ice can build up on the unit. Additionally, a faulty fan can allow moisture to accumulate on the coils. Not only can ice damage components of the system—like the motor—but it also affects the overall cooling power, impacting your family’s comfort.

Protect Your Family’s Comfort with AC Maintenance

It’s no secret that regular tune-ups help keep air conditioning performance up and repair costs down. With that in mind, we offer a comprehensive 20-plus-point maintenance checklist along with multiple packages to suit your needs and budget. Call Del-Air at 888-831-2665 to schedule an appointment for your AC maintenance today. Our goal is to help you get the best mileage out of your unit even as utility costs continue to rise while ensuring maximum comfort for your loved ones.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
