AC units tend to break down around the end of summer, especially if they’re older or they’ve been overworked a lot. Even if your AC doesn’t break down, it’s still best to check on it and perform all the necessary maintenance so that you can still use it at peak efficiency next year.
One of the things you’ll need to do is listen to the unit and make sure you check to see if it makes any unusual sounds. Rattling noises or various metallic sounds might be heard if there is some kind of damage that appeared as you were using it during the summer. If you hear any strange noises, contact a local expert in AC repair Englewood area right away.
It’s also a good idea to replace the air filter at the end of summer. After an entire season of using your AC, the filter might need replacing even if you did this job before the start of summer as well. If you’re unsure on whether or not your air filter should be replaced, call in a professional to check on your unit and give you their recommendations.
Other required maintenance tasks to be done around the end of summer include cleaning and unclogging the condenser coils, checking on electrical connections, evaluating the efficiency of the unit and giving your furnace a tune-up, if your system is a complete HVAC. It is essential to call in an Aurora expert for all these tasks, as at least some of them can be pretty difficult as well as downright risky.
