As much as we all depend on our air conditioners, we rarely pay them as much attention as we should. We often don’t even think about their upkeep until it is too late, and we’re staring down a huge repair bail.

While some services should always be performed by a professional, there is simple AC maintenance that you can perform in order to keep your air conditioner working. The air conditioner maintenance you can do at home includes:
Most of these maintenance procedures are simple cleanings or checks that are easy to complete. Dirty filters, for example, or easy to clean or replace and are easily distinguished from a clean filter. However, a dirty air filter will not only reduce performance, but it will also cause further damage to your AC.
A dirty filter no longer filters particles in your air as well as it should and will allow debris to settle on your unit’s coils. These coils enable your air conditioner to regulate its temperature but cannot work if covered in dust.
Likewise, if fins are blocking airflow to the coils, your unit’s performance will suffer. If these fins are bent, you may need to move them back into place.
Condensate drains, on the other hand, need to be periodically cleaned. With a wire brush, manually scrape the portion of the drain closest to the exit. You may then use a wet vac to remove any excess debris. You may also run a 1:1 mixture of water and bleach through the drain to further inhibit the further growth of algae.
Finally, if your air conditioner lies on a window, its seal must fit snuggly, or your unit will perform poorly. Likewise, if your portable AC is not performing to your expectations, try adding a window seal or replacing your current one. Overall, sealing the air gaps in your home can significantly improve the performance of any air conditioner.
Of course, air conditioner maintenance isn’t all filters and fins. Fort Collins air conditioning maintenance from Lion Home Service covers your entire HVAC system. If you find that your AC is no longer working properly, our experts will perform trained air conditioner maintenance.
Our Fort Collins AC maintenance requires our service experts to carefully measure your system’s airflow, oil pressure, and belt tightness. If these all seem to be as they should be, our service expert will move to examine your unit’s refrigerant. A proper inspection will flush and capture any excess refrigerant to ensure that levels are normal and stable.
After checking the refrigerant, your service representative must also inspect your unit’s electrical system to ensure that it is operating correctly. The final step in our Fort Collins HVAC maintenance service is to check your ducts for any leaks. A service expert will patch any gaps in your ducts to improve your system’s performance.

Lion Home Service was fantastic. I had called them due to another company pushing my service back and couldn’t tell me if they would make it the same day or next day. Being upset about the situation Katie in the office took care of me and Matt the tech that showed up couldn’t have been more courteous and professional. He was quick to do the job and didn’t even leave a mess to be cleaned up. Have to say that was nice. The rates were very reasonable. I would highly recommend Lion to anyone needing
Absolutely amazing and as professional as is possible. Drew went above and beyond in his effort to solve our water heater issues. Matt was very friendly and knowledgeable. I wouldn't trust any other company with my home HVAC needs. 5 stars all the way!
These guys have been fabulous. Efficient, timely and professional.
