Devine Brothers’ Recommended A/C Maintenance
Posted on March 18th, 2020 by Devine Bros
Your air conditioning unit is a vital part of your home, and with warmer weather approaching, now is the perfect time to make sure it’s ready to take on the summer heat. Regular maintenance will help spot any minor issues before they become major, and ensure your system lives a long and efficient lifespan. Besides scheduling a tune-up, here are a few steps you can do on your own.
Clean Air Filters
Your air filter is what removes dust and debris from your home. If not cleaned regularly, your system can put a strain on your system and lower your indoor air quality. Check your manufacturer’s recommendations on when to change your filters. You might also want to consider different models of air filters, too.
Check Your Ductwork
Not only should the windows be sealed, but your ductwork as well. If the ductwork isn’t properly contained, the air could leak out before it gets the chance to go into your home, wasting you energy and money. Some might notice cold spots in their home; others might feel uneven airflow. All of these are signs of ductwork issues that a professional can help address.

While all the options above are easy to do on your own, there are a lot more steps to A/C maintenance you’ll need professionals for– that’s where we come in. At Devine Bros. we will:
