It’s just the beginning of February, but before you turn around twice spring and summer will be here. At Ortiz Heating & A/C, we want Contra Costa homeowners to be prepared for the warmer weather before it gets here, so that you can avoid potential problems or costly repairs. If you have (or are considering) a wall mounted ductless indoor air conditioner, we have a few maintenance tips to ensure efficient operation and a cool, comfortable home when warmer temperatures arrive.
Indoor air conditioning units are a good choice for many who have budget concerns, and want to avoid complicated duct work. These systems are highly convenient, but just like any other heating or cooling equipment for your Bay Area home, it needs to be taken care of.
When it comes to indoor air conditioners, the most important thing you can do is to use it! Even if you don’t intend to use your air conditioner every day, run it occasionally so that it can circulate. This may help you avoid any problems when the next cooling season rolls around.
Keep it clean. This should be a no-brainer, but some people never give their air conditioner a second thought. As long as it’s working, why mess with a good thing? The fact is, dirt, dust, and other airborne particles can build up, causing your equipment to function inefficiently. Check for dust/dirt, change any filters on the unit, and wipe it down. Cleanliness is important for good efficiency and lower cooling costs.
Schedule maintenance. Regardless of what type of air conditioning system you have, regular maintenance is important. By having a skilled Contra Costa HVAC contractor come inspect your system and make any necessary repairs, you can enjoy a comfortable home, equipment that will last longer, and reduced energy costs.
