With the first official day of summer being June 21st, there are a few things to keep in mind regarding your AC unit. Many homeowners wait until there is an issue with their air conditioning unit before fixing it rather than taking precautions to avoid any issues altogether! Below are a few easy things that you can do to ensure your air conditioning system is prepared for the hot summer months ahead.
Regardless of what season we are in, checking your air filter monthly is something that should be done. Be sure to replace as soon as dust, dirt and other particles begin to accumulate on it. Since most systems have disposable filters, take the time to stock up on filter replacements for the whole summer season so you won’t fall behind on changing them!
Locate the condenser unit for your HVAC system (it should be outside your home). Search for dead leaves, brances, dirt and any other debris that has been built up around the unit. Be sure to clear these so your condenser unit is clear of any obstructions. Any restricted airflow means decreased efficiency.
Make sure doors, windows and any other nooks & crannies are shut and properly sealed. The less cool air that escapes your home, the less energy you will waste, and the more comfortable you will be!
Many parts of a thorough annual check-up require disassembling your AC unit, so calling a professional to get the job done may be your best bet. Be sure that your AC professional will check for clear drains as well as ensuring your indoor & outdoor units are cleaned.
