Fox Service Company April 25, 2018

If they haven’t already, everyone will soon be switching on their air conditioning systems to keep cool and comfortable.

But before you turn on your home AC you should probably make sure it’s up to par and functioning properly. Throughout the winter, your air conditioning system may have accumulated dust and dirt and should receive professional tune-up before use. Luckily, there’s a few of things you can do yourself to ensure your system is working efficiently. For professional repairs and maintenance tune-up services, Fox Service Company provides quick and effective air conditioning maintenance services to get you enjoying cool, fresh air in no time at all!

Air Filters

One thing you can take into consideration when checking your air conditioning system is the air filter. The air filter’s job is to accumulate heaps of dirt and dust, but over time that dirt prevents clean and cool air from circulating throughout your home. If you can’t recall the last time you had the air filter replaced it’s time to replace it with a new one. In fact, you should be monitoring the air filter and replacing it at least every three months, or more depending on the environment where you live.


Next, you can ensure the efficiency of your system be using a fin comb. The fins on your air conditioning system can become bent out of shape, and this can significantly decrease the amount of air that flows from the system. To straighten the fins, you can purchase a fin comb online. Homeowners not comfortable doing this should call Fox Service Company for assistance.


Lastly, to maintain your air conditioning system, not only should you be keeping an eye on the cleanliness of the air filter, but you should make sure the air conditioner and the area surrounding it is clean. Debris such as leaves, dirt, and grass should be removed to help the system function properly.
