RaleighRepair Tips – Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well
In Raleigh, NC, weather can get very hot in the summer and almost always requires your air conditioner to run 24/7. Having your air conditioner running so often can be really taxing to your air conditioner unit and if not maintained well could cause you to have to have a premature air conditioner repair.
Here are a few Air Conditioning Repair Tips to help your air conditioner to stay in tip-top condition.
- Change your filters every month and no less than every three months. Dirty filters starve the air conditioner of air and heat which can cause the air conditioner to freeze over.
- Use the pleated filters to prevent dust and dirt from getting through to the fans and fan motors. The cheap fiber filters do not stop the dust from getting through and that dust can damage motors and motor bearings leading to expensive repairs.
- Buy a programmable thermostat and turn up the temperature during the summer when away from home and down at night. Properly setting it to automatically change temperatures can also save you a lot of money over the long-haul.
Maintaining your air conditioning unit is one of the best ways to make sure you get the best life and performance from your system. If you are in the Raleigh, Apex, Cary, Holly Springs or greater Wake County call Alexander Services for a Spring Tune-up or Annual Maintenance Package.
