Expert Advice for Keeping Your Home Comfortably Cool

Beat the Heat with Proper AC Maintenance

Summers in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Star, Middleton, and Garden City can be brutally hot, making air conditioning an absolute necessity for staying comfortable. However, neglecting regular maintenance on your AC unit can lead to costly breakdowns and inefficient cooling. Here are some expert tips to keep your system running smoothly:

  • Change Air Filters Regularly: Clogged air filters restrict airflow, forcing your AC to work harder and consume more energy. Aim to replace your filters every 1-3 months during peak usage.
  • Clear Debris from Outdoor Unit: Ensure that the area around your outdoor condensing unit is free from leaves, dirt, and other debris. This allows for proper airflow and prevents overheating.
  • Schedule Annual Professional Tune-ups: A certified HVAC technician can thoroughly inspect, clean, and optimize your system for maximum efficiency and longevity.

When to Consider AC Replacement

Even with diligent maintenance, air conditioning systems have a limited lifespan. If your unit is more than 10-15 years old or requires frequent repairs, it may be time to consider a replacement. Some telltale signs include:

  • Increasing energy bills despite proper maintenance
  • Uneven cooling or warm spots throughout your home
  • Frequent breakdowns or costly repair bills

Replacing an aging or inefficient AC can save you money on energy costs and provide reliable cooling for years to come. Look for ENERGY STARĀ®-certified models to maximize energy efficiency and lower your carbon footprint.
