Easy DIY Tips for Maintaining Air Conditioning Units

7 thoughts on “Easy DIY Tips for Maintaining Air Conditioning Units

Thanks for sharing this advice on maintaining your HVAC unit! I had no idea that cleaning the dust and bacteria from the condenser coils could actually be a health hazard for you and your family. It sounds like I should leave the cleaning to a professional so that my house doesn’t have contaminated air in it. Like you said, maintenance isn’t about doing it yourself, it’s about keeping your system in good condition!

One of the things that I am terrible at is periodic cleaning. and the filters have gotten pretty gross. I would hate for them to get worse, so I will be doing some do-it-myself cleaning. Like you said, if there is “the right contractor” available, use him as well; I will use these tips and find the right contractor too.

I already had common sense that fixing a leaking air conditioner was a great idea. However, I overlooked the idea that it could affect the circuitry of the unit. If the circuitry were to go, then I’d have to get a whole new system.

The air conditioning unit in your home gets used a lot. We may not know it but during the summer, it is running almost 24/7. This can put a lot of stress on the unit to where it could break. It would be a good idea to make sure you perform routine maintenance on your air conditioning unit. Just like a car, it has to be maintained to work properly. I would suggest that you seek out the help of a professional when it comes to this. I’d say that not many people know how to fix an air conditioning unit.

Ugh, I can’t say how important it is to do a periodic cleaning… Whether it’s professional or personally done, it’s SO IMPORTANT. If your house has been smelling funky, or mold keeps appearing in weird places, it’s time to check the AC unit.

These are some great suggestions for making sure that your AC is in good condition. My air conditioning hasn’t been working as well as I would like, so it would be really nice to get it cleaned soon, and then do any necessary repairs. If there are any leaks, I should really get those patched up so that it doesn’t continue to damage the unit any further. Thanks for the great post!

I really agree with your tip about cleaning your filters periodically. When it comes to air conditioning, a lot of people don’t really think about taking a look at their system until the whole thing isn’t working the way that they want it to. If your system isn’t working efficiently, it can cause you to suffer from too much heat or too high of a bill every month.
