As Northern New Jersey sees temperatures in the 90s this week, many are already using air conditioning — and counting on it to work. But if your air conditioning goes on the fritz, you might be in trouble.
When the temperature rises, so does the demand for HVAC units. It’s highly important that you keep a close eye on your A/C units.

These systems break down when they’re working the hardest, and they work the hardest in the summertime when you’re getting 11 to 12 hours of constant run time.
Keeping your air filters clean is an important part of maintaining your air conditioner. Experts say one of the most common problems is neglect.
Not components gone bad, but they’ve forgotten to change their filters, that they haven’t cleaned it in awhile.
It’s important to check your filters monthly and change them as needed.
Literally, you can lower your bills by just keeping up with your filters and extending the life of your system overall.
Another tip when running your A/C is to put the fan on the “Auto” function instead of leaving it running. Also, if you’re inspecting your AC unit, you want to make sure it’s running and there’s no ice accumulating.
The simple things can make all the difference.
As far as servicing them, Green Apple Mechanical recommends every 5 to 6 months before the summertime and before the wintertime. Routine check-ups every year.
