It will soon be time to have your air conditioner tuned by a professional HVAC company. Spring is approaching, and if your air conditioning system is not ready to take on the higher temperatures of summer you could end up paying dearly for it. Air conditioners can lose efficiency and become more likely to experience a failure for every year that they aren’t maintained.
Changing the Filter
- One of the things you can do to get a head start is replace your air filter with a new one. Dirty air filters are one of the primary causes behind service calls, so don’t forget to stay on top of replacements during the summer. It’s usually a good idea to check and replace your air filter about once every month.
Clearing the Weeds
- The area around the external portion of your air conditioner needs to be kept clear of debris. Winter can deposit leaves and scrub around the unit, while spring may bring the growth of fresh weeds. Clear the space around the air conditioner and check the lines running into your house. Your A/C repair technician will give the unit its own checks, but you can help by clearing cobwebs and plant debris.
Compiling the Notes
- Now is a good time to collect relevant information to present to your air conditioning company. For example, maybe one of the rooms in your home was always too cold last summer, or you want to explore ways to make your A/C more efficient. The best opportunity for repairs and upgrades is when your A/C is first tuned for the year. This ensures that you’ll get the most out of your unit throughout the entire summer.
Calling the Pros
- Your air conditioning system will need to be tuned by a qualified A/C repair specialist. They will perform important checks concerning refrigerant levels and the overall integrity of your system in order to optimize its performance. With regular maintenance, your air conditioner will enjoy an extended life and deliver highly efficient performance that keeps your bills low and maximizes your comfort.
