HVAC Maintenance Tips: Keeping Your AC in Proper Working Condition

April 4th, 2012

The hot summer days are soon approaching. This is the best time to service your air conditioner (AC) before you really need it. Crockett Facilities Services is here to help you keep your AC in top shape by giving you a few expert tips on keeping your air conditioner in proper working condition.

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your HVAC is crucial to effective maintenance of your air conditioner.

Your filters should be changed on a monthly basis for the best upkeep. Yes, there are additional filters you can use besides the regular filter but you should first consult with an AC maintenance consultant before using these other filters.

Another action that will help you maintenance your air conditioning is placing a cap on the end of your AC drain. The end of the drain is located outside of your building. A dry vacuum should be used to suck out any dirt from your AC. When vacuuming is completed, remove the cap.

For the best cleaning results, you should hire a HVAC technician  to use a high-pressure vacuum to clear out your drain. This task should be done at least once a year to prevent debris and dirt backup that could develop mold growth in your AC. When your HVAC system has excessive backup, water damage to ceilings and walls could happen.

If you need to prepare your HVAC system for the hot summer days, hire Crockett Facilities Services.

Environmental comfort is the number one concern of most building occupants. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) each play a role in maintaining a comfortable environment. We can help ensure occupant comfort by planning, installing and maintaining the climate control systems in your facilities.

In addition, we can improve your HVAC’s equipment efficiency and overall performance, reducing operating costs and energy usage. How well an HVAC system is maintained will determine how quickly the system’s efficiency degrades. With properly maintained systems, you can avoid unplanned repairs and equipment replacement.
