Summer Maintenance and Air Conditioner Repair in Denver
Air conditioners are simply amazing pieces of technology. Most of us don’t even need to set our thermostats anymore – smart thermostats adjust the temperature to our optimum comfort level and preferred electrical savings for us. We control the temperature inside our homes without even thinking about it.
Until it seems to be getting a bit warm inside. Then you suddenly realize that perhaps you haven’t changed the filter in a while. When was the last time routine maintenance was performed? If you can’t remember, you may have left your air conditioner at risk for potential repairs.
Air conditioner repairs increase during the summer months due to increased use. Small issues in the early summer may become big issues during the peak of summer heat. The one way to help prevent air conditioner repair in Denver during the summer months is to perform routine maintenance.
DIY Air Conditioning Maintenance
There are a few things you can do yourself to ensure your air conditioner is running at its best. There are many small details that can reduce the efficiency of your air condition – causing it to run harder and increase your cooling costs.
Adjust Your Thermostat – The U.S. Department of Energy reports homeowners save up to 10% per year on energy bills when thermostats are adjusted properly. This video explains how to set a smart or programmable thermostat for both comfort and savings.
Service the Filter – Cleaning or changing your air filter can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by up to 15% and improve your home’s air quality. You should change the filter once a month for a healthy AC system.
Clean Around the Unit – Inspect the area around your outdoor air conditioning unit at least once a year. Clear away overgrown plants and remind family members not to prop bicycles or toys against the unit.
Go Green Air Conditioner Maintenance
We provide convenient air conditioning maintenance in Denver and surrounding areas for parts of your AC’s annual maintenance that requires a professional touch.
Clean the Air Conditioner Unit – Cleaning the outdoor unit keeps your unit running efficiently. Cleaning the grill, fan blades, condenser and indoor evaporator coil allows air to cool easily and move freely.
Clear the drain – A clogged drain makes your unit work harder and produce less air. Checking the drain can be nearly as important as changing your air filters.
Checking the coolant – Studies reveal that a system 10% low on coolant can cost you up to 20% more on energy costs. A yearly check ensures your air conditioner coolant system is operating properly.
In addition to these key parts of our professional air conditioning maintenance, Go Green technicians also check the electrical systems, adjust belts, oil fan motors, monitor operating pressures and temperatures as well as identify any potential problems you may have during the summer months.
