How to Prepare Your AC for the Summer – Essential Maintenance Tips and AC Tune-Up
Sure, you can turn your air conditioning system on for the first warm day of the season and hope it works but going that route will likely come with some consequences down the road. When it comes to prepping your air conditioner for spring and summer a little bit of maintenance goes a long way.
The first step in making sure your home’s cooling system is up to par is to clean or replace the filter. This is a vital piece of maintenance that should be done once a month for the entire cooling season so be sure to get it started on the right foot.
Next, you’ll want to clean the outdoor unit. Oftentimes, they get filled with dust, dirt, leaves and other debris during the off-season which can all have a negative impact on your equipment. Spray it down with a hose and be sure to cut away any overgrown bushes or shrubs. You’ll want to have a few feet of space clear on all sides of the unit.
Then we recommend checking your thermostat. Flip it over to the “cool” setting and make sure the unit kicks on. If it doesn’t here are a few troubleshooting tips to follow: How To Fix A Broken Thermostat.
