The AC Unit Mechanic

Maintenance, it is something that needs to be done on basically everything. You must change your oil and your tires (and much more) to maintain your car, you must take your vitamins and eat your veggies to maintain your health and you also have to maintain your air conditioning (AC) unit to expand it’s life expectancy and assure that it runs properly.

There are certain things that must be done to maintain your AC unit and keep it running at its best, which is good for both you and your wallet since an AC unit that isn’t working properly often costs more to run.

Here are a couple tips on maintaining your AC unit:

  • Change the air filter: This should be done frequently especially during the warm months and especially if you live in a very dusty area, you own pets or with someone who has allergies. Some units have filters that need to be thrown away and replaced and some can just be cleaned then put back in.
  • Check the power cord: The power cord can be worn down and if it is then it might not be supplying enough (or any) power to your AC unit. It can be checked by removing the control panel, unscrewing the cord terminals then connecting it to a wire test.

Just like maintaining a car is a foreign and confusing concept to some people so is maintaining their AC unit. That is why there are car mechanics to help people figure out what needs to be done to keep the car in great health.

Same goes for the maintenance of your AC unit. If you aren’t sure what needs to be done or how to do it then contact us today! We would love to help you and be your AC unit mechanic!
