The hot weather and increased humidity means your air conditioner is putting in a lot of work. The best way to stay cool this summer is to stay on-top of your unit’s upkeep so you can feel confident everything is operating correctly. There are a few tips for you to help guarantee your air conditioner is working correctly during the hotter season.
Keep the Area Around Unit Clear of Brush and Debris
Summer is the most popular to mow your lawn, making it easy for grass clippings and other debris to gather outside of your air conditioner. This can cause a decrease in system capacity and reduced airflow, resulting in your air conditioner working harder and ultimately wearing down earlier. Be sure to consistently remove any debris around your unit so your air conditioner can last as long as possible.
Change or Clean the Air Filter
Frequently replacing or cleaning the air filters in your air conditioner will help its efficiency. For any questions about which filter you should use or how often you should change it, review the filter itself or feel free to contact the team at CNR Air Conditioning Inc so we can provide a suggestion based on your specific system. For certain filter sizes, we can check and replace them at your regular maintenance visit. It’s important to know that if your air conditioner is in regular use, it’s subject to dusty environments, or you have pets, that your filter may need to be cleaned or changed more often.
Your air conditioner’s coils accumulate dirt over time which will lower airflow and insulates the coil making it more difficult to absorb heat. The outdoor coils can become dirty if the surroundings are dusty or if there is nearby vegetation. Coils can also bend, hindering airflow through the coil. Our team can check the coils at your annual maintenance visit to clean or straighten coils as required.

The professionals at CNR Air Conditioning Inc can look at your air conditioner to ensure everything is working correctly, keep coils and filters clean, and much more.
