Preparing your air conditioner for the hot summer season is essential in helping your system run efficiently and avoiding repairs. Following a few tips can get your air conditioner well-prepared for the summer to ensure you and your family remains comfortable.
Here are a few things to remember while preparing your AC for the summer months.
1. Replace Your Filters
One of the first steps in preparing for the summer is to switch out your filters. Usually, it’s a good idea to replace these filters every two to three months for the best results. However, you may need to replace your filters more often if you have allergy issues or indoor pets. Replacing a filter allows your system to operate more efficiently, which can help save you money.
2. Remove Debris Around Your Outdoor Unit
Another way to prepare your AC system for the summer is to clean around the outdoor unit. Removing debris and leaves around your unit will allow it to run efficiently without overheating. Mowing and removing weeds around your unit is also important in keeping it well-maintained throughout the summer months.
3. Clean Coils
The outside unit of your air conditioner collects dust and other debris during the winter. All of these substances can clog up your unit and cause it to run less efficiently. Disconnecting the power and spaying down the outside of the unit with a hose is a great way to keep your unit clean.
4. Schedule an Inspection
Problems with your air conditioner can happen without you even realizing it. The best way to handle this situation is to schedule a yearly inspection. An HVAC professional will check out your entire system and make any adjustments or repairs to ensure it’s ready for the summer season.
