Tips to Bolster Your Air Conditioning Efficiency

This summer, you might want to think of ways to keep your air conditioning system efficiently functioning for a long time before repairs have to be made. Otherwise you and your family could be inconvenienced with a hot house for days on end. Remember that the simplest way towards AC longevity is cleaning and maintenance, and here are some simple tips that can help you achieve that:

Cleaning Debris

Make sure that the AC unit’s housing is free of dirt, dust, and debris, because these could hamper its function and make it harder for your unit to produce cool air. Dust it at least once every week, and trim back grass, bushes, overhanging branches with leaves and remove other things that might be littering your AC.


Every moving part of your AC needs to be lubricated from time to time, otherwise there can be too much friction buildup, thereby making your unit overheat or letting it expend more energy to work. Check the valves, fans, motor and other mechanical components and if they seem to be slowing down or are worn due to friction, place some oil on their surface.

Cleaning Coils

Your AC’s condenser and evaporator coils are important because they facilitate the removal or exchange of heat from the outside air so that it’s cool by the time it gets inside. Dirty coils mean increased energy consumption and premature wear and tear.
