Spring is the perfect time to give your home cooling equipment a check-up. Fixing any problems now will help you avoid air-conditioning problems when hot weather arrives for good.  And, well-maintained air conditioning systems cool more efficiently, saving energy and money.

Viewer Tip: You can perform a cooling system check-up yourself or ask a professional for help. According to EPA’s Energy Star program, a typical check-up should include:

Tightening electrical connections. Faulty connections can be unsafe and reduce the life of your system.

Lubricating moving parts. This reduces friction in motors and increases energy efficiency.

Checking the condensate drain. A plugged drain can affect indoor humidity levels and cause water damage in your home.

One can definitely complete the simple air conditioning check up on his own but should be the job of a professional technician only mainly since it requires a great knowledge to do any repair on your own. If you cannot do it yourself, you will face more losses on repairing yourself. Remember little knowledge is a bigger curse than total illiteracy.
