At Ierna’s Heating & Cooling, we see a lot of different air conditioning problems. Frozen coils, refrigerant leaks, airflow blockages, condensate drainpipe clogs, to name just a few. While we excel at diagnosing air conditioning problems for our customers, we also try to ensure that they know how to prevent such problems from negatively impacting cooling performance. Taking care of repairs as they occur is incredibly important, and professional installation sets you up for successful operation in the years to come, but routine maintenance is perhaps the best thing you can do for your home’s air conditioner, no matter what kind it may be.

  • Routinely replace the air filter: The air filter has an important role to play in the design of your air conditioning system. It helps to protect the internal components of the AC by capturing debris before it can enter. When this becomes clogged or excessively dirty, it can begin to act against the very system it was designed to protect. By checking and replacing your air filter about once a month during the cooling season, you can avoid many performance issues related to impeded airflow.
  • Enroll in regular maintenance: There’s no substitute for professional maintenance. The knowledge and technical expertise of a qualified HVAC technician gives him or her the skills need to make sure your system functions effectively. By inspecting, cleaning, and adjusting your AC on a regular basis, you can be sure that your AC receives the care it needs to perform well for years to come. It may even be required by your manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Upgrade: If your AC is old and worn out, or constantly needs repair, you should consider upgrading to a new system. Today’s air conditioners have vastly improved their ability to cool homes and to do efficiently. Speak to your local professional if you are concerned about the condition of your AC.
