Summertime can often overwork our air conditioners. With the heat of the day, air conditioners are put under a lot of strain and can even break down if not properly maintained. To ensure that your air conditioner is ready for the summer, Rocklin Heating & Air recommends the following tips:

1. Clean & Replace the Air Filter

The air filter is an important part of any air conditioner. It helps to keep the air clean and free of dust, dirt, and other allergens. To help your air conditioner last longer and run more efficiently, it’s important to clean or replace the air filter regularly. The frequency of cleaning or replacing the filter will depend on the type of filter and the environment it is in.

2. Check the Refrigerant Levels

Refrigerant is the liquid that helps to cool the air inside the air conditioner. If the refrigerant levels are low, the air conditioner won’t be able to cool the air efficiently. To ensure that your air conditioner is running properly, it’s important to check the refrigerant levels regularly and refill them if needed.

3. Clean the Coils and Ducts

The coils and ducts of an air conditioner are responsible for transferring the air from the outside to the inside of the home. Over time, these coils and ducts can become clogged with dirt, dust, and other debris, which can reduce the efficiency of the air conditioner. To ensure your air conditioner is running at its best, the coils and ducts must be checked and cleaned regularly.

4. Check the Thermostat

The thermostat is responsible for controlling the temperature of the air inside the home. If the thermostat isn’t working properly, it can lead to an inefficient air conditioner. To ensure that your air conditioner is running properly, it’s important to check the thermostat regularly and replace it if needed.

5. Have a Professional Maintenance Check

Having a professional maintenance check is the best way to ensure that your air conditioner is running properly. During the maintenance check, a professional HVAC technician will inspect the air conditioner and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to ensure that it is running efficiently.
