Air-conditioning is extremely important to those who are in climates where the weather can get very hot. When it's humid outside the heat index can get very high and create an uncomfortable environment for those without AC. If you have an AC unit in your home, then you want to maintain it, so that it will last.
As long as your AC is cooling your home when it's turned on and it's not making any strange noises then you have a well functioning AC. In order to maintain the AC you'll need to do a few things. If you have an AC unit that hangs out of the window, make sure it's not obstructed, or covered in any way. The AC is helping to cool the air, but it also releases water, and needs to be unblocked and uncovered.

The coils in the AC unit, need to be kept clean, because dirty coils can lead to a poor functioning AC. If you don't know how to clean the coils on your own, you can hire a professional to do it, whether it's a window unit, or a bigger sized unit outside. Air filters for the AC unit, need to be cleaned frequently as well, in order to keep the unit functioning properly.

You'll also want to keep an eye on the drain pipe, and make sure it's not clogged, and freely releasing water. Lastly, consider the copper Freon tubes, and make sure they are cold, but not icy. You can determine if you have enough Freon, or if you need more, just by checking the copper tubes.

What Are The Benefits Of A Functioning AC Unit?

An AC unit needs to function properly, if you expect to make it through the hot summer months. As long as you have a well functioning A/C unit, your home can stay at a reasonable temperature, and be cool when it's hot outside. If you've checked your AC unit, and it works fine, then leave it alone. Any major problems with your AC unit should be repaired by a professional.
