AC repair is not something that you should take lightly. Unless you have the right training and experience, it’s not something you should try doing either. There are components that only licensed professionals are allowed to handle, such as the refrigerant, and you’re more likely to make the problem worse if you were to take the DIY route.

You can, however, do regular maintenance to improve the lifespan of your air conditioner. Here are some tips about what you should do and what to look out for when your unit needs repair.

AIR FILTERS

Air filters help ensure the air quality flowing from the unit into the room. Over time, this can become clogged by dust and dirt, which then makes it difficult for the cool air to pass through. Ideally, the filters should be cleaned out every 30 to 60 days. Read more from this blog. http://bit.ly/2sICzSE

Most homeowners don’t notice anything wrong with their air conditioning system until it fails to perform when it is needed.

Dirty Filter

Airflow will be restricted, reducing your air conditioner’s ability to efficiently and effectively cool the air.
