Benefits of AC Maintenance & Tune-Ups
Regular air conditioner system maintenance is essential for ensuring your comfort. Performing annual maintenance on your system allows HVAC technicians to identify minor issues before they can cause major problems. Regular maintenance keeps your system operating at optimal performance, from coils and blower motors to filters and refrigerant levels.
Tuning up these systems will prolong the operational life span of your air conditioner. It will also ensure warranty compliance so that if a problem ever arises, you won’t have to worry about whether the manufacturer’s warranty covers the repairs.
To schedule air conditioner maintenance or a tune-up of your system, contact Schneller Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air at (859) 757-1877 in Kentucky and (513) 407-4424 in Ohio.
Maintaining Your Air Conditioner Yourself
In addition to scheduling a professional air conditioning maintenance visit for your Cincinnati or Covington home, you can take care of some preventative AC maintenance on your own. For example, make sure your outdoor unit of your AC is always clear of debris and brush. Keep the cover cleaned as well. Replace your furnace filter based on the manufacturer’s recommendation, and schedule air duct cleaning once a year to help it run efficiently. Taking these measures will make your annual AC maintenance check more effective.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should air filters be changed?
Air filters should be changed anytime they are clogged or dirty. This means that you may need to change your filters every month or just a couple of times a year, depending on the conditions around your home. If you don’t change the filter, it will impede performance and potentially damage your system as it forces the unit to work harder to cool the air within your home.
Does a dirty refrigerant coil impede AC operation?
Absolutely! A dirty refrigerant coil can significantly reduce your air conditioner’s ability to cool the air circulating within your home. Often, cleaning the coil can dramatically improve the performance of your system.
Can you spray your air conditioner with water?
One of the easiest ways to clean your air conditioner is to spray it with water. This is absolutely safe and won’t harm your air conditioner. However, it is advisable to turn the power off before spraying your system. This way, if there is an electrical fault you are unaware of, it won’t pose an electrocution hazard while you are cleaning the system.
Why do air conditioners leak water?
Air conditioners can leak because of a buildup of ice or because of an obstructed drain. If you notice pooling water around your air conditioner, it’s important to identify the cause before it can cause damage to your system.
How important is proper air conditioner sizing?
Sizing is critical, and if your air conditioner is the wrong size, it won’t operate efficiently, thus reducing energy savings and longevity. Further, you’ll spend more on maintenance and repairs as the years go by.
How long will an air conditioner operate?
Most modern air conditioners will provide reliable operation for 10 years or longer. This depends on how well you maintain the system and whether the unit suffers damage from construction, Mother Nature, etc.
