Maintenance Tips for your Air Conditioning System

by EnRoute Team on July 22, 2011

Routine Maintenance Tips:

  • To ensure efficient operation, check filters every month. Clean or replace as needed.
  • Have annual system maintenance service performed one month before the cooling season begins.
  • Keep the condensing unity free of debris.
  • Trim shrubs and plants near condensing unit to ensure proper air flow/circulation.
  • Bent condensing unit fins can be straightened with a fine comb.

Problem:

Water leaks into the wall or ceiling:

Make sure the drain line is not restricted and condensation drains freely.

Problem:

Unit costantly cycles on and off:

Call a qualified professional to clean the evaporator unit and fan.

Problem:

Air conditioner doesn't make air cool enough:

Keep the area around the exterior condensing unit clear of leaves, bushes and other obstructions to ensure adequate airflow. Clean or replace the air filter. Create shade for the unit. Secure the insulation firmly to the suction line (large line) and replace any worn-out insulation.
