Summers in Chicago help us recognize the importance of air conditioning (AC) maintenance. Neglecting AC maintenance can lead to a broken AC unit at the time of the year that it is needed the most. Avoid the inconvenience by keeping up with its maintenance year-round with these simple tips.
- Clean the outside periodically to avoid the accumulation of dust.
- Clean or wash the filter. You can use a vacuum cleaner or a dry towel.
- Change the AC’s filter regularly. Check on the filter every month and replace once it’s necessary. When you maintain the AC’s filter clean you reduce your energy consumption by 10%.
- Maintain the temperature at an average number, neither too low or too high. If you do this, you’ll avoid possible damages due to abrupt temperature changes.
