Prepare Your AC for Summer

Cooling

With warmer weather right around the corner, now is the time to prepare your air conditioner. When your air conditioner is running at top efficiency, it can save a big amount off your energy expenses! Likewise, if your air conditioning unit requires service, it could drastically increase your costs and cause unnecessary and life-shortening wear and tear on your system. Having your Osceola Air, LLC professional complete air conditioning service at least each year is crucial to keeping your system running at its best for a while. He or she can ensure the unit is operating as it should be and can identify looming problems before they happen, saving you even more money.

Your professional 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

DIY Preparation

In addition to scheduling your skilled air conditioning service, there are steps you can do now and intermittently throughout the year to be sure your air conditioner is at its best.

Now:

  • Uncover your outdoor unit if it was covered during colder months. Using your AC with a cover, coil blanket or lid on it could harm your system and end with the need for big repairs or even replacement.
  • Pick up the area around your AC. Be sure there are no shrubs, weeds, flowers, etc. growing near your AC unit because they could inhibit airflow through your AC. Also make sure there aren’t piles of leaves or mulch obstructing any aspect of it.

Throughout the year:

  • While your filters could be cleaned or swapped out during your skilled air conditioning service, it’s important for you to check them each month and replace per the manufacturer’s suggestion. Each home has unique needs when talking about air filter replacement, relying on factors 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 run efficiently and will help you have a comfy home. By adhering these simple, proactive steps, you’ll be doing everything you can to make sure your air conditioner will be prepared for whatever summer has in store.
