3 Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips for Homeowners


If you want to save money on air conditioner repairs and replacements, the best thing you can do is regularly maintain your unit. Small AC maintenance tasks like changing the filter and keeping debris away from your unit will help keep your air conditioner running smoothly and your home at your ideal temperature.


For the tasks you can’t do on your own, make sure you schedule regular maintenance with an expert HVAC technician to save yourself time, money, and headaches later on.


  1. Properly close doors and windows

The less cool air that escapes your home, the faster your unit will cool your home and the less it will have to work overall. When your air conditioner is on, make sure you seal your doors and windows, so all the cool air stays in your home. If the cool air is entering your home, then just leaving through an open window, your home will never reach your desired temperature!



  1. Install a programmable or smart thermostat

Installing a programmable or smart thermostat will ensure your air conditioner only works when you want it to. Smart thermostats let you program your home’s temperature in advance. That way, if you’re not home, your thermostat can raise the temperature. Plus, smart thermostats can be integrated with an app, so if you forget to turn off your AC before leaving home, you can switch your system off from anywhere in the world.



  1. Consider covering your AC unit for the winter

If you have an AC unit that sits outside your home, consider using a cover in the winter. Before you cover your unit, check with your manufacturer that it’s a safe option for your air conditioner. While air conditioners are designed to withstand most environmental conditions, if you live in a place with a lot of snowfall or rain, consider covering your unit in the winter to further protect it.
