Basic Air Conditioning Maintenance

Customers ask all the time: “What’s the best way to maintain my cooling system during the summer months?”

The best answer? Changing the air-filter! The air-filter costs just a few dollars, but can prevent expensive compressor failure or coil clogging. If you’ve seen the air-conditioning coil develop ice on its surface- you may have a clogged filter.

At Boston Standard, we recommend that you buy pleated air-filters, which last up to 90 days, and that you keep extras on hand. If your cooling system is working poorly- check the filter! If you would like any help or advice, please call Boston Standard for all of your cooling needs at 617-288-2911.
