Beat the Heat: Essential AC Maintenance Tips and Why American Air Keeps You Cool

As summer temperatures soar, our air conditioners become our saving grace. But just like a trusty car, your AC needs regular maintenance to perform at its best. Here are some essential AC maintenance tips to keep your cool and efficient all season long:

  • Change Your Air Filter Regularly: This simple step is crucial. A clogged filter restricts airflow, forcing your AC to work harder and use more energy. Check your filters monthly and replace them according to the manufacturer’s recommendations (typically every 1-3 months). Shop our selection here!
  • Schedule a Professional Tune-Up: At least once a year, ideally before the peak summer season, have a qualified technician perform a professional maintenance check-up. This includes cleaning coils, inspecting components, and ensuring proper system operation.
  • Keep Your Unit Clean: Debris around your outdoor unit can impede airflow. Regularly remove leaves, twigs, and other clutter from the surrounding area. Trim back any overgrown vegetation that might block airflow.
  • Mind Your Thermostat Habits: Don’t constantly adjust your thermostat. Programmable thermostats allow for automatic temperature adjustments throughout the day, saving energy. Aim for a comfortable but not excessive temperature setting.
  • Consider a Smart Thermostat Upgrade: Smart thermostats offer advanced features like remote control, scheduling, and energy-saving learning capabilities.
