Taking care of your ductless air conditioner can ensure the highest level of performance and the greatest longevity for these climate-control systems. According to ENERGY STAR, ductless systems can reduce cooling costs by as much as 30 percent compared with window air conditioning units. This can allow you to enjoy optimal comfort even on the hottest days in Tucson, Arizona, and the surrounding communities. Here are three proven tips for keeping your ductless air conditioning system running at peak efficiency for years to come.
Clean the Outside Unit
The outside unit of your ductless system is exposed to dirt, pollen and other pollutants. Taking time to clean this part of your system on a regular basis can prevent dirt and grime from building up on moving parts and can prevent breakdowns that could cost you time and money. This could also extend the longevity of your ductless AC system, allowing you to protect your financial investment.
Replace the Filters
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends regular replacement of your air conditioner filters as the most important single step you can take to improve performance and increase the functional life of your HVAC systems. In most cases, the company that performed your air conditioning installation can provide you with accurate information on the best air filter options for your system.
Schedule Regular Maintenance Visits
As with any HVAC system, routine maintenance for your ductless air conditioner can go a long way toward preventing breakdowns and downtime. Working with a reliable and established company can provide the support you need to keep your ductless AC system running at peak efficiency.
