Your Air Conditioner and the Monsoon – Useful Info from Donley Service Center

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

What should you do to assure your air conditioning unit is functioning properly and effectively? 

  • Surge Protector for your AC! Don’t let one lightning storm blow out your entire unit (and all your other electronics!)
  • It is important to maintain your outdoor condenser coil.  It needs to be washed regularly by a professional, especially during the monsoon season.  When it is loaded with dust and dirt, the unit operates hotter, uses more electricity overall and produce a less cooling effect.  
  • Filters need to be changed monthly.  A good reminder is to change your filters every time you get your electric bill.  A slightly dirty air filter can increase your utility bill 5-10%.  A dirty air filter also lets more contaminants into your house – who wants to breathe those in? 
  • If you have a rooftop unit, contact a professional to make sure it is secured properly to prevent high winds from pulling the unit off the roof or away from your duct work. 
  • Make sure ductwork on the roof is sealed properly to prevent dust and dirt from entering your home through holes, cracks and poor seals like cracked silicone or tar.
