After winter has hit and done its damage, the time comes to prepare your air conditioning unit for the warmer weather ahead. Seasonal maintenance is important for keeping your indoor air quality as clean as possible in the allergy-laden months ahead.
Here are a few tips to make sure your air conditioner is ready for the warmer weather.
Tip #1. Remove outdoor covers
If you covered your air conditioner during the winter months, be sure to take the covers off as soon as the weather warms up. Keeping them on could cause damage to your system.
Tip #2. Check your enclosure panels and coils
Check to make sure your air conditioner is in good working condition and without damage. Additionally, clear any debris away from your condenser coils to make sure they can run properly.
Tip #3. Change the filter
Dirty air filters are the leading cause of sub-par indoor air quality. At the first sign of spring weather, change your filter and keep changing it every month.
Tip #4. Clean your ducts
Dirt, pet hair or other debris can keep air ducts from functioning to their full potential. Use a vacuum cleaner or a brush to clear your ducts of any blockages.
Tip #5. Schedule a maintenance appointment
At the beginning of spring, it’s important to schedule a routine maintenance appointment with a trusted air conditioner professional to make sure that all of the parts are working as they should.
