Whether you own a small duplex or an apartment complex with dozens of units, your AC system is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your building. Over time, it will need maintenance and repairs like any other piece of machinery. But if you want to keep your tenants happy and your rental income coming in, making sure that your AC unit is in good working order is a must for any landlord.
So with that in mind, it’s time to take a look at a few simple steps you can take to ensure your system keeps running smoothly and efficiently for as long as possible.
Tips for keeping up with routine AC Maintenance
1. Schedule a Professional AC System Inspection
2. Change your Filters
This may seem like a no-brainer, but many people don’t change their filters regularly enough or at all. This leads to the most common issue that occurs with air conditioners, dirty filters.
3. Clear the AC System Drains
4. Clean your Compressor Coils
Clean the compressor coils once a year. This prevents dust from building up on them and damaging them long term. When you have a professional HVAC company, such as Mullin Heating and Air Conditioning come out and clean your system, they will do this for you. However, if you want to do it yourself, here is a bit of advice:
