Preparing Your Air Conditioner to Stand Up to Summer

Make Sure You’ll Be Staying Comfortable All Summer Long

There are a lot of things to look forward to in the summertime, but killer heat and irritating allergens don’t make the list. Luckily, your air conditioning system is built to keep you safe from these inconveniences. But if your AC hasn’t been properly maintained and prepped, you could find yourself dealing with issues and breakdowns instead of enjoying cool, clean air.

See what our HVAC experts recommend you do to prepare your home for the summer months. It only takes a few simple steps to make sure your AC will be working at maximum efficiency!

Make Sure Your Unit Is Clean Inside and Out

If your air conditioner is full of dust, dirt, and ice, it can’t work as well as it should to keep you cool. Take some time to clean all of the accessible parts and components, as well as the area around your unit, to make sure that no outside contaminants will be interfering with your unit’s performance. This includes:

  • Cleaning or replacing the filter
  • Making sure your vents are clean and unobstructed
  • Clearing and branches, leaves, or other debris around your unit
  • Cleaning the condenser unit
  • Checking and cleaning fans

Invest in Fans and Filtering

If you want to get the most out of your air conditioner this summer, one of the best things you can do is invest in accessories. Fans can not only provide an additional source of cool air, but improve the airflow in your home, which can improve the efficiency of your central AC.

Additionally, you should consider investing in air filters, purifiers, or sanitizers that eliminate dust, pollen, and other airborne particles. Besides irritating your lungs, these particles can accumulate inside your system and cause vital components to slow down or even stop.
