As the snow starts to melt and warmer temperatures start arriving, now is a great time to think about your home’s main form of cooling.
Getting your AC ready for spring before the warm temperatures arrive is a good idea. A little air conditioner maintenance can go a long way when it comes to keeping your air conditioner running efficiently, all summer long.
Tips to Follow For a Spring AC Check
There are a few things you can check over yourself when it comes to inspecting your air conditioner for the spring:
- Check for dirt and debris – If you see a significant buildup on the outside of your unit, you can use a garden hose to wash it off. This will help the air flow within your system and prevent this dirt and debris from getting inside.
- Change out your filter – A clean filter will make sure that the allergens are trapped before they enter your home. If your air filter is dirty it can hinder airflow into your home and cause your air conditioner to run less efficiently. Ideally you should change out your filter every 2 – 3 months, more often if you have pets, or your system has been working overtime.
- Check your thermostat – It is a good idea to switch on the thermostat to make sure it is working correctly. If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat, you may want to look at purchasing one. Programmable thermostats can save a significant amount when it comes to energy costs.
