Summer is right around the corner and it is time to get your air conditioning ready. To get your AC ready for summer, there are a few things you can do. This blog series will go through actions you can do to prepare your air conditioner. Here is what you can do: What To Do To Get My Air Conditioning Ready For Summer
Do A Complete Inspection Of The Unit
When you are getting your air conditioning ready for summer, it’s important to make sure that your unit is in good working order. A quick inspection of the entire system can help prevent any problems from developing later on. Check for any damage to the unit, such as a broken fan blade or cracked fins. If there are any leaks in the system, they should be repaired before you start using your air conditioner again. You should also look for loose parts or nuts and bolts that may have come loose during use over time—these could cause issues down the road if left unchecked! When checking refrigerant levels, make sure they are at their proper levels and not too high or low—too much or too little refrigerant can cause problems with the operation which will lead to higher utility bills due to too much energy being used by an inefficient cooling system which results in wasted energy costs over time!
Change The Filters
Clean filters are important for both energy efficiency and to ensure the air conditioner is effective. Most filters can be found at a hardware store, sometimes in packs of two or three, and they are designed to last one month before needing replacement. If you are buying your first AC unit, it’s a good idea to purchase extra filters so that one set can be cleaned while another set is in place. Some units have reusable filters; these should be cleaned when dirty or at least once every three months (less often if you live in an area with low humidity). To clean these types of filters:
1) Remove them from their housing by turning them over and sliding outwards; then remove any debris caught in the mesh using tweezers or pliers (if available).
2) Wipe down all sides with a damp cloth until dry; then allow it to dry completely before putting it back into its housing
Schedule An AC Tune-Up With A Contractor
There are a few main reasons why to hire an AC contractor. One reason is to make sure your air conditioner is running in top condition and safe. You want to avoid having a breakdown and an emergency situation, especially if it’s hot outside! Another reason is that many homeowners forget about their air conditioners until there is an issue, which means they do not take care of them properly over the course of the year. A professional can help you maintain your system more consistently than if you were doing it yourself and could prevent costly repairs later on down the line. Lastly, keeping up with routine maintenance will ensure that your unit runs efficiently throughout its life. Maintenance will help avoid unnecessary repairs to help extend its lifespan.
Our air conditioners are one of the most important parts of our homes, and we want them to be in tip-top shape. That’s why hiring a professional HVAC contractor to maintain and tune up your air conditioner is a great idea. They will help you make sure your home is ready for the hot summer that is on its way.
