An air conditioner plays a key role in keeping you feeling cool and comfortable throughout the entire summer. However, problems with your AC system can arise at any time and create a lot of stress. Taking the time to always prepare your air conditioner for the upcoming summer months is well-worth the effort in improving the efficiency of your system while also helping you to keep problems to a minimum.
Here are a few ways you can get your air conditioner ready for the summer season.
Check the Condensation Lines
Inspecting the condensation lines is important if you want to avoid any potential clogging issues. A clogged pipe can eventually back up into your AC unit and create a big mess. Ensuring your pipe is draining properly is essential to avoiding this problem.
Change Your Filter
Another way to prepare for the summer season is to replace your air filter. Changing out your air filter will allow your system to operate more efficiently, which can reduce your utility bill. A new air filter also helps to improve the quality of air in your home.
Grass and weeds can quickly grow around your outdoor unit during the spring months. Always cutting the grass and weed-eating around your unit is essential to keeping it clean. Removing all of this debris will also reduce the chance of your AC unit overheating.
Clean Air Conditioner Coils
The outside unit of your AC system can accumulate mud, dust, and other types of debris during the winter season. Over time, this can eventually cause your unit to run less efficiently. Disconnecting the power from the unit and spraying it down with a water hose is an easy way to keep the coils clean.
