Keep Cool in the Arizona Heat This Summer With Preventative Maintenance
Air conditioners in Arizona get a workout during the summer. Here are a few things that homeowners can do to help maintain their air conditioner to ensure it continues to keep you cool:
- Replace your filter regularly. During periods of high usage, replace your air filter once a month.
- Trim back your plants so there is at least one foot of clearance around your A/C unit.
- Clean the condenser coils. Sand and other debris can get sucked into the condenser coils. To clean coils, first disconnect the power to the A/C and then use a garden hose to spray the coils.
- Have an annual maintenance inspection performed by a professional HVAC Technician. Make sure they include checking the condenser as well as the air handler/evaporator.
If you take care of your A/C, it will take care of you and keep you cool during the hot Arizona summer.
