AC diagram

The “lifespan” of a central air conditioner is about 15 to 20 years.

Annual maintenance can improve the efficiency and help to prolong the life span of your central air conditioning unit

  1. Routinely replace or clean all filters this can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption any where up to 15%.
  2. Check your air conditioners evaporater coils every year and clean them as needed
  3. If your coil fins are bent, use a “Fin Comb” to straighten them out
  4. Now and again pass a stiff wire through the units drain channel to prevent clogs.
  5. For window AC units, inspect the window seals to keep cool air from escaping.
  6. Hire a certified professional when you unit needs more than basic maintenance.
