Keeping Your Air Conditioner in Tip-Top Shape for Summer

Although it has been unseasonably chilly this summer across the Lower Mainland, keeping your air conditioner in good repair will help ensure you save on cost and untimely breakdowns when the sunshine finally does hit.

As a homeowner, it is important to know the basics of your air conditioning unit so you can feel confident in terms of what can be a DIY project, and what requires professional services.

Professional Help – Keep Up With Regular Maintenance

Regular professional A/C maintenance is key, as your air conditioner can be running fine one minute, and literally conk out the next.

Not only that, but by having it regularly maintained, you will better maximize the lifespan of your system, as well as ensure your home stays the right temperature with each season.

Although there are always upfront costs to any form of maintenance, it is much better than unexpected and increased costs of air conditioner repairs.

DIY – Keep the Airflow Constant & Check the Fuse Box

Your air conditioning unit requires the ability to “breathe”, so be sure to double check that you have taken the winter cover off of it, as this can make it sound rough due to a lack of airflow – which can quickly cause concerns.

If you have turned on you’re A/C unit and discovered the fan inside is not spinning, it might be that your capacitor is in need of replacing, or it may be an electrical problem.

This kind of “repair” could be as simple as replacing a fuse – so be sure to check your fuse box to save on calling out a repairman to find out the very same thing, but with a cost attached to it.
