As humans, many of us have a habit of waiting until the last-minute to take care of just about anything if we have the ability to put it off until later. Then when “later” comes we rush to finish the things we should have done a while ago. Preparing your air conditioner for summer isn’t something you should put off until later. Before you know it spring will be here and with it warmer weather, pollen, dust, and other debris that floats in the air.
Most people don’t have their air conditioner running a whole lot through the spring, but ensuring that your HVAC system and air conditioner is ready and operating efficiently can save you headaches when the warm weather hits. Waiting until the last-minute for air conditioner maintenance can result in having to wait until an appointment time is available as most people wait until a heat wave is upon us to book an air conditioner maintenance appointment.
Homeowners & Air Conditioners
Prior to a scheduled air conditioner maintenance visit by a professional from a reputable company like Air Conditioner Pro there are a few maintenance tasks a homeowner can take care of themselves.
- Clear The Area Around Air Conditioners: If your air conditioner is surrounded by bushes, trees or any other foliage it may be working harder than it needs to. Anything that can restrict airflow to and from your air conditioner can increase how much it needs to work to properly and efficiently take in cool air and expel warm air.
- Cleaning Air Conditioners: It may sound simple but cleaning your air conditioner also ensures that it’s running efficiently. It’s important to be very gentle when cleaning the various parts of your air conditioner. The external coil and fins of your air conditioner are very delicate and can be easily damaged. It’s important to remove all debris from these components in order to maintain and increase your air conditioner’s efficiency.
- Turn Them On Early: In the early spring turn on your air conditioner and check all of the associated components to ensure they’re working properly. The indoor blower motor, the fan outside, and any other visible elements need to be working properly prior to running your air conditioner for an extended period of time. If your unit isn’t working well or happens to break down during your test a service call in the early spring won’t be as costly as it is during peak summer times.
Overall, it’s important to properly take care of your air conditioner and ensure that you have a regularly scheduled air conditioner maintenance appointment with a reputable company like Air Conditioner Pro.
