It’s easy to miss the hidden portions of your home during a routine cleaning, but there’s usually a way to get it done. You may need to grab a stepladder to reach the top of the bookshelf or pull out the vacuum hose to get behind the clothes washing machine. But there’s one part of your home that may require a particular expertise to clean properly: the air conditioner.
Keeping parts of the air conditioner clean allows them to run smoothly, which means they will not need to use so much energy. But if you clean it the wrong way, or if it is not reassembled in the proper way after a cleaning, you may further damage the system. Find out how you can help to keep your AC clean and when you should call a professional in the information provided below.
When to Call a Professional
Scheduling annual air conditioning maintenance is the best way to secure the future of your system, preventing repairs and making the unit run efficiently. While there are some parts you can clean on your own, there are others such as the coils and blower assembly that you should allow an expert to clean. You can join an annual maintenance plan so that you never have to worry about forgetting to make a call for maintenance.
What You Can (and Should) Do Yourself
Each and every month, you should clean or replace your air conditioner’s air filter in order to maintain optimal efficiency between annual AC maintenance visits. The air filter stops dust from entering the system and from circulating through the air, but a dirty filter can actually damage the unit. You should also keep debris far from the outside unit, so trim back any nearby hedges and clear out any clutter leaning against the system.
Kyle came out to do maintenance on the unit they installed 4 years ago and I can say the level of service from then to now has been stellar. The unit is in great shape and the peace of mind from their maintenance service is worth it. Nothing but good things to say about this company. 10/10 would recommend.

The best, end of story! We had to have our system replaced when we bought our old beach home. I was totally blown away with how quickly the job was done. The crew was extremely professional, and kept everything clean.

Jason and crew were great to work with. A hands on owner which cares about the work and system being installed. Extremely recommend. The three hundred dollar rebate from Beaches Energy for the high efficiency unit was also icing on the cake.

I had Kyle as my technician and the customer service was top notch. He was prompt and very polite. The thing I appreciated was the honesty. There wasn’t any attempt to try and provide me service that I didn’t need, and no pressure to try and upsell me on anything. Kyle was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I got on the maintenance plan and recommend this company to everyone.
