Now that the weather is starting to change the temperatures are cooling off you need to be ready for this when it comes to your air conditioning. The cooler weather means that there are more opportunities for you to stop using the cooling part of the unit and start getting ready to use the heater. There are things that you need to do to prepare your home and unit for the cooler weather. If you have had your unit serviced and maintained throughout the year you may have less work than a unit that has not been serviced.
Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning has some tips on what you can do to make sure your air conditioner is ready for fall.
Change Air Filters – Like most homes in Las Vegas, you probably have a central air system and that means that you have several things to do to make sure you are ready. The first step that you will need to take is to remove the old filters and start with a new fresh one.
Clean Unit – You also need to make sure that the system is clean. The system usually needs to be cleaned by a professional company. When the system is cleaned out and the filters are fresh then it will keep the air that enters your home cleaner. If you have a unit that is set outdoors then you are going to have to do more work to make sure that it is ready to go. Most of the time you want to be sure that the unit is powered off to make sure that it does not accidentally switch back on. Then you can take a hose and wash off all the dirt and debris from the outside of the unit. Be sure that is has dried all the way off before you turn it back on.
Air Conditioner Pipes – This is also the season that you want to look for any pipes that are exposed to the outside conditions. When the weather gets cold it can freeze the pipes and make it so that the unit cannot work as well. You can cover them with foam and tape that will keep it in place.
