How do I know if my air conditioner is running properly this summer?

Cooling

The summer heat means your air conditioner is putting in a greater amount of work. The best way to stay cool this summer is to stay on-top of your unit’s upkeep so you can ensure everything is working correctly. There are a few tips for you to help make sure your air conditioner is working as it should during the hotter season.

Keep the Area Around Unit Clear of Brush and Debris

Summer is the most common time to mow your lawn, making it possible for grass clippings and other debris to gather outside of your air conditioner. This can cause a decrease in system capacity and reduced airflow, resulting in your air conditioner working harder and ultimately wearing down sooner. Be sure to consistently eliminate any debris around your unit so your air conditioner can last as long as possible.

Change or Clean the Air Filter

Habitually replacing or cleaning the air filters in your air conditioner will increase its efficiency. For any questions about which filter to purchase or how often you should change it, check the filter itself or feel free to contact the team at A2Z Air Inc so we can advise based on your specific system. For certain filter sizes, we can check and replace them at your regular maintenance visit. It’s important to know that if your air conditioner is in consistent use, it’s subject to dusty environments, or you have pets, that your filter might need to be cleaned or changed more often.

Coil Care

Your air conditioner’s coils gather dirt over time which will lower airflow and insulates the coil making it more difficult to absorb heat. The outdoor coils can become dirty if the surroundings are dusty or if there is nearby vegetation. Coils can also bend, hampering airflow through the coil. Our pros can check the coils at your annual maintenance visit to clean or straighten coils when needed.
