The hot weather and increased humidity means your air conditioner is putting in a lot of work. The best way to remain cool this summer is to stay on-top of your unit’s upkeep so you can ensure everything is operating correctly. There are a few tips for you to help guarantee your air conditioner is working correctly during this summer heat.
Keep the Area Around Unit Clear of Brush and Debris
Summer is prime time to mow your lawn, making it easy for grass clippings and other debris to gather outside of your air conditioner. This can cause a decline in system capacity and reduced airflow, resulting in your air conditioner working harder and ultimately wearing down faster. Be sure to regularly eliminate any debris around your unit so your air conditioner can last as long as possible.
Change or Clean the Air Filter
Habitually replacing or cleaning the air filters in your air conditioner will help its efficiency. For any questions about which filter to purchase or how often you should change it, review the filter itself or feel free to call the team at Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating so we can recommend one based on your specific system. For certain filter sizes, we can check and replace them at your routine maintenance visit. It’s important to know that if your air conditioner is in constant use, it’s subject to dusty conditions, or you have pets, that your filter could need to be cleaned or changed more regularly.
Your air conditioner’s coils collect dirt over time which ultimately decreases airflow and insulates the coil making it more difficult to absorb heat. The outdoor coils can become dirty if the environment is dusty or if there is nearby foliage. Coils can also bend, hindering airflow through the coil. Our experts can check the coils at your annual maintenance visit to clean or straighten coils as required.
Keep Up with Your Air Conditioner Maintenance
It is critical to keep up with your regular air conditioner maintenance. The technicians at Morgner Inc.

Annual maintenance check-ups will help avoid major breakdowns and keep your air conditioner running as long as possible.
