Prepare Your AC for Summer

Cooling

With warmer temperatures right around the corner, now is the time to prepare your air conditioner. When your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency, it can save a big amount off your energy costs! Likewise, if your air conditioning unit is in need of service, it could drastically raise your expenses and cause needless and life-shortening wear and tear on your system. Having your Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. expert perform air conditioning service at least each year is crucial to keeping your system working at its best for a long time. He or she can ensure the unit is working as it should be and can identify looming problems in advance of them happening, saving you even more money.

Your skilled air conditioning service should include, but is not limited to:

  • Replacement of, or cleaning of, air filters
  • Cleaning of condensate drain, blower components and condenser coil
  • Lubrication of all moving parts and tightening of electrical components
  • Performance of cooling cycle assessment

DIY Preparation

In addition to arranging your skilled air conditioning service, there are things you can do now and periodically throughout the year to make sure your air conditioner is at peak performance.

Now:

  • Uncover your outdoor unit if you kept it covered during cooler months. Utilizing your AC with a cover, coil blanket or lid on it could hurt your system and require big repairs or even replacement.
  • Clear the area surrounding your AC. Ensure there are no shrubs, weeds, flowers, etc. growing around your AC unit because they may obstruct airflow through your AC. Also be sure there aren’t piles of leaves or mulch blocking any part of it.

Through the year:

  • While your filters may be cleaned or changed during your expert air conditioning service, it’s important for you to inspect them monthly and replace per the manufacturer’s suggestion. Each home has unique needs when talking about air filter replacement, varying on factors like owning house pets or doing home construction through the year.

Having your ducts cleaned on a regular basis will also make sure your air conditioner is able to operate efficiently and will help you have a cozy home. By sticking to these simple, proactive steps, you’ll be doing everything you can to be sure your air conditioner will be prepared for whatever summer brings your way.
