Spring is here! With hot weather is right around the corner, it’s important to make sure your air conditioner is ready to go for the summer.
Waiting for the first really hot day of the season to turn it on and hope that it’s working is not a smart thing.
You want to prepare now, that way if there is a major issue you can have it addressed before you actually need to use your AC on that first hot day.
Six Easy Ways To Prepare Your AC For Summer:
- Clean Around Your Outside Unit
- Change Your Air Filter
- Clean And Clear Your Vents
- Open All Your Vents
- Turn On Your Air Conditioning System
- Get An AC Tune-Up
If you take care of this right now, you can avoid two major issues: The first is your system not working when it’s needed. The second is waiting for air conditioner repair because heating and cooling companies are too busy during the heat of summer.
Clear out around your outside unit
If you have leaves or branches that have fallen on your system, make sure to clear them off.
Change Your Air Filter
Changing the filter in your AC system inexpensive, easy to do, and will increase the indoor air quality inside of your home.
Clean And Clear Your Vents
You may have dust and cobwebs around your vents now. Giving them a quick wipe is easy! Doing so clears up the vents and reduces the dust in the air you are breathing.
Making sure furniture isn’t blocking your vents is important, too. A couch or rug blocking a vent will prevents proper air flow and make that room difficult to cool.
Open All Your Vents
If you have a traditional central air conditioning system, without different zones, you may think that closing vents to unused rooms will save energy. But that often leads to problems with your HVAC system.
Closing vents can lead to built up pressure in different areas. You get uneven cooling it and doesn’t save any energy. In fact, you often end up using more!
Turn On Your Air Conditioning System
Making sure your system turns on is simple, but something a lot of people forget to do. Simply turning your system on, and making sure it kicks on will check off an easy box.
Get An AC Tune-Up
If you haven’t had your system serviced by a professional in the last year or 2, it’s time to call someone out.
The best time for an AC tune-up is in the spring, but you can also have someone come out in the summer. Having regular maintenance to your HVAC system will help in a few different ways:
Your system will run more efficiently, saving you money, and helping the environment. Your system will last longer. Your home will be more comfortable.
Your system is FAR less likely to break down. Just like taking your car in for an oil change, this will help your HVAC system run much better for years to come.
