Regular maintenance is essential for the efficient functioning and longevity of your air conditioning system, just like any major appliance or vehicle. Proper maintenance, regular inspections, and timely repairs can help your system work at peak efficiency. While some maintenance and repair tasks can be DIY projects with proper instructions and tools, others require professional expertise. Therefore, it’s essential to know when to contact a contractor and when to tackle the job yourself.
To maintain your air conditioning system, you should schedule HVAC inspections twice a year, ideally during seasonal changes. During inspections, pay attention to specific areas such as filters, ventilation ducts, and vents. Filters should be changed every month, and ducts and vents should be cleaned every six months or more frequently if visibly dirty. You can use household cleaning products or a mixture of water and white vinegar (1:1) for cleaning, ensuring that all components are dry before reassembling.
