The end of summer is the perfect time to do some routine maintenance on your home’s HVAC unit. Here at Cooper Heating & Cooling, our team understands that maintenance is the key to getting the most out of your heating and cooling system. By taking a few steps at the end of the season, you can extend your AC’s lifespan, reduce the risk of breakdowns, and even make it more energy-efficient. Here are some August HVAC maintenance tips to get your system ready for fall.
Clean the Outdoor Condenser Unit
Take a look at your AC unit. Is there any lawn debris or detritus built upon or around it? Summer is a rough season for air conditioners because lawn mowing and landscaping generates a lot of waste material that can get trapped in the condenser unit. Clear the debris away with a brush or a vacuum to keep the components clean and free of obstructions.
Replace the Air Filter
If you haven’t replaced your air filter since spring, it’s going to be pretty dirty by August. Months of your air conditioner running on a daily basis will result in a significant amount of build-up on the filter. Changing it at the end of summer is an important step in preparing your HVAC system for fall.
Schedule Routine HVAC Maintenance
The best thing you can do for your home’s heating and cooling system at the end of summer is schedule professional maintenance. A trained technician is capable of opening up the system and doing cleaning and adjustments that homeowners can’t manage on their own. Not only does this ensure that your system is operating at peak performance, but it also means you’ll benefit from maximum energy efficiency and fewer breakdowns.
