Upkeep and Cleaning

The most important thing you can do to prolong the life of your air conditioner is keep it clean! This means checking the surrounding area of the unit and ensuring nothing is poking or prodding at it. But also, you'll need to make sure the inside is clean too. By this we mean, changing the air filters regularly. A clean air filter can make a huge difference. The vents are also a key element here. Keep them clean! Build up on the vents can cause your AC to run unnecessary because it detects that the house is warmer than it actually is.

Tuneup and Long-Term Care

It's not all on you to make sure your unit is in good working order. You should have an expert come out to inspect it periodically. With the necessary tuneups and professional care, you unit will make it to old age - in air conditioner years that is. And you'll avoid those AC emergency phone calls later on.
