Do it Yourself A/C Repairs
You need to save money and you have a little experience with do-it-yourself
projects. Why not save a little money and perform your
air conditioning maintenance yourself?
Good news - there really are some maintenance items you can take care of
yourself. The easiest and most important is regular filter replacement.
Fiberglass filters should be changed monthly, and pleated filters can
last up to three months. Our recommendation is that you purchase good
quality pleated filters. (Money saved by buying cheap filters will cost
you plenty in the long run).
Next, you can easily clean surface debris from the outside of your conditioning
unit. The condensing unit is the outside portion of your heating and cooling
system. Be sure to turn the unit off before turning the hose on, and then
gently spray from top to bottom to wash dirt, leaves and pine needles
from the condenser coils. Clean condenser coils allow your system to operate
efficiently during peak periods, thereby saving energy and providing more cool air.
By performing these simple tasks, you will save money and enjoy great system
performance during the hot summer weather. Problems are inevitable and
when they occur, be sure to contact a licensed, reputable service provider
like Tom's Mechanical. Contact us 24 hours a day at 972.254.7888 or

Be careful out there!
