For your air conditioner to be ready to perform when summer hits, it's important that you take care of regular maintenance. Given the fact that it’s almost May, these steps are even more important, as summer is just around the corner, and Florida has already started to heat up! There are a few steps you can take it home to help get your AC ready, and you'll need your professional air conditioning company to assist with a vital annual tune-up. When you take the right steps, your AC will perform throughout the entire cooling season, keeping your home comfortable and your costs down.
- Clean the area around the external unit. While you'll want to leave the cleaning of evaporator coils and fans to your professional air conditioning maintenance technician, there are some things you can do outside. Carefully remove dust, leaf debris, and weeds from around the external unit of your air conditioner. This prevents them from clogging the unit.
- Change your air conditioner's filter. If there is not already a fresh filter in the return air vent inside your house, replace the old one now before you run your air conditioner for the first time. Regularly changing your air filter will not only extend the life of your air conditioner itself, but it will also reduce problems and keep your indoor air quality high. Air filters remove pollutants and allergens from the air while protecting the internal components of your AC.
- Have your air conditioner tuned. Your professional AC repair technician can come up to your home and perform a thorough inspection of your air conditioner. This inspection is vital to the health of the unit and directly affects its performance for the rest of the year. When your air conditioner has been properly tuned, it will perform at maximum efficiency which keeps your costs low on your comfort high.
