It is now April and this is the season where we begin to prepare our air conditioners for the upcoming summer season. As we begin to switch over from the heating to the air conditioning system, there are certain steps that you will want to take. Spring season is the time of year to begin preparing your air conditioner. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will share what steps you should take to prepare your air conditioning system for summer right now.
Clean Registers & Vents
As the homeowner there are steps you should take to prepare your air conditioning system. First, you will want to clean off all of the air vents and registers. At the same time you will want to make sure the air vents are fully open and change out the air filters. Next you will want to go outside and check the state of the outdoor unit. You will want to clean up around the outside of the unit. If debris has blown in or vegetation has grown around the outdoor unit you will want to clean up and cut the vegetation down. You want to make sure the outdoor unit has plenty of air circulation and that there is not debris or vegetation surrounding the unit. After you have cleaned around the outdoor unit, changed the air filters and cleaned the vent and registers, you are done. The rest should be left to an HVAC technician.
Spring AC Tune Up Maintenance
To properly prepare an air conditioner for winter, you will want to have the air conditioner tuned-up. During a tune-up, your air conditioner will be thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and repaired if needed. During a tune up there are a number of components that need to be cleaned and maintained. Starting with the condenser and evaporator coils. The coils will be cleaned to ensure they do not clog up during the summer season. Clean coils will help improve the air conditioner’s ability to create cool air. The blower and the motor is checked. Often the blower will need to be cleaned out as dust tends to build up inside the fan. The bearings are also checked and if needed, replaced. Moving components are cleaned off and lubricated to allow them to move more freely. The electrical system is checked. Often connections can become loose and need to be tightened and occasionally, the wiring will be changed out. The entire air conditioning system will be serviced. If there is a major problem the homeowner can have the problem corrected before it is 100 degrees outside. As components can wear down, you will want to have them repaired before the summer to ensure your air conditioner is working throughout the hot summer.
