Prepare Your AC for Summer

With warmer temperatures close by, now is the time to prep your air conditioner. When your air conditioner is running at top efficiency, it can cut a significant amount off your energy costs! Likewise, if your air conditioning unit needs service, it could drastically raise your costs and cause preventable and life-shortening wear and tear on your system. Having your Temp Control of Vero Beach specialist complete air conditioning service at least each year is crucial to keeping your system operating efficiently for a while. He or she can make sure the unit is working correctly and can identify possible issues before they happen, saving you even more money.

Your expert 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 setting up your professional air conditioning service, there are steps you can do now and intermittently throughout the year to ensure your air conditioner is at top performance.

Now:

  • Uncover your outdoor unit if you kept it covered during winter. Utilizing your AC with a cover, coil blanket or lid on it could damage your system and end with the need for large repairs or even replacement.
  • Clean 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 piece of it.

During the year:

  • While your filters may be cleaned or changed during your professional air conditioning service, it’s important for you to look at them every month and change them per the manufacturer’s suggestion. Each home has it’s own needs when it comes to air filter replacement, varying on aspects like owning house pets or performing home construction during 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 maintain a comfy home. By sticking to these simple, proactive steps, you’ll be doing everything you can to make sure your air conditioner will be prepared for whatever summer brings your way.
