The weather’s been a bit unpredictable lately, but it should start warming up sooner than you know it. And as it does, you’ll be switching off your heater and putting that thermostat into “cooling” mode. We encourage our customers and all homeowners to start thinking about the performance of their air conditioning systems before the cooling season begins; here’s what we recommend.
Take care of repairs early on
It’s important that you get any and all repairs taken care of for your AC before you actually need to use the system. Wait too long to get it repaired, and the parts might only start to get worse and worse. Your AC system could fall into a state of disrepair, and you could end up paying far more to fix things later in the season than you would have paid early on.
Change the air filter
Changing the air filter is something you should do each month for your health and for the performance of your HVAC system. An air filter that’s too dirty prevents air from moving through the AC system. And since your AC system was designed so that a certain amount of air would continuously move through it as it operates, it runs into trouble when the filter is clogged. It may surprise you to learn that many of the repairs we make over the season are due to a filter that hasn’t been changed.
Schedule an AC maintenance visit
A professional AC maintenance visit includes a look at your system, cleaning of the coils and the blower unit, and an adjustment. Changing some settings, tightening electrical connections, and cleaning up the parts today helps everything to run more efficiently later. We typically recommend this service in the spring, so call your local technicians today for more details about this money-saving service.
