However, it will only stay working properly if you properly maintain it. We have some of the best air conditioner maintenance tips that can help you out. If you want to avoid too many ac repair issues, these maintenance tips will help you out.

Understanding How the AC System Operates

Many of the ac units have 2 main parts – outdoor unit and the indoor unit. You should know how your specific unit works and operates. If you don’t know how it operates, it will be quite difficult to know when or what the issue is if one arises. You can always contact the ac repair experts at Peaden to learn more about your specific ac unit.

Keeping Your AC Unit Clean

One of the most important things you can do is to keep your ac unit clean. You can vacuum the ac unit fins or have a Peaden expert do it for you. You must keep in mind that these are fragile and they can be crushed or bent quite easily. If you want to leave this job up to a professional, you can always contact Peaden experts.

Fixing an AC Pad That is Sinking

There is a concrete pad beneath the ac unit outdoors. This needs to stay straight or there could be many issues that arise with your ac unit. The wiring and entire unit could break down. If your pad is starting to or already has sunk, you should contact Peaden ac repair experts right away. We would be glad to come out and fix this issue for you.

Fixing an AC Unit That is Noisy

If your condenser is newer, than a noisy ac unit is probably a compressor issue. However, this may not be the case. Some of the older units may just be noisy. There are sound blankets you can get. However, those usually only work for newer models. If it is another issue, you can contact Peaden to find out the issue and to have it repaired.

Fixing the Fins

You may also have an issue with the ac unit fins. These may be crushed or bent. They can be adjusted, but this takes caution. If you need help with this type of issue, you can contact ac repair experts at Peaden today.

Unclogging the Drain Tube on the AC Unit

If you have water that puddles by the furnace when you have your AC unit turned on, this may mean the condensate drain tube is clogged. The condensation has bacteria in it and this can become a big problem. The good news is that Peaden ac repair experts can fix this problem for you.
