Don’t let the first day of summer be spent waiting for the AC technician to come. With proper preparation, you can put your worries aside and take comfort in knowing that your system is ready to do an efficient job all summer long. So here’s how to get your AC ready for summer:
Turn It On
The first thing you’ll want to do is turn on your machine to make sure it’s working as it should. If you wait until the first hot day, you might be spending your day waiting for a technician. Turning it on now can help you fix any issues before the season is in full gear.
Your air filters help your system provide you with clean air, and when they are bogged up with debris, your system can’t do what it should. Your HVAC has to work harder and waste more energy to push air throughout your home, wasting your money in a long time. Now is the time to replace your filters.
Inspect The Outside
Make sure your condenser unit outside your home is not covered with leaves and random debris. A dirty unit can lead to a breakdown, higher energy bills, and more.
Clean Your Air Ducts
Just like your air filters, your air ducts play a big part in your indoor air quality. A yearly professional air duct cleaning can ensure there are no mold, mildew, or allergens being pushed around through your home.
Consider an Upgrade
If your system is over a century old, making loud noises, not evenly cooling your home or seems to be rising your energy bill — it might be time for an upgrade.
