Spring has already arrived and it’s a good time to start thinking ahead about preparing your Puerto Vallarta condo or home for warmer temperatures with our air conditioner maintenance tips.
Air conditioners are built to be study and durable, but as with any piece of machinery, like a car for example, they need regular tune-ups to run efficiently and without problems. In fact, without regularly scheduled ac maintenance, you can expect that your units will lose up 5% of their efficiency each year, which equals higher electric bills, so calling a qualified Puerto Vallarta air conditioner technician twice a year is a smart choice for homeowners.
Here are some things you should make sure are on your technician’s check list:
- Clean condensing coils
- Oil the motor fans
- Check all belts
- Check system operating pressures and temperatures against Owner’s Manual specifications
- Thoroughly clean unit
Not only will a properly serviced air conditioner help keep your electrical costs down, it will also do a better job of dehumidifying your Puerto Vallarta home, helping to keep mold at bay. Check online for
