Summer has officially come to a close. Pretty soon you are going to want to have the heat on to stay warm instead of trying to stay cool. Did you know that there are ways you can “close down” your air conditioner before the cold comes and the heater begins to address your needs? Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning wants to help you understand what you can do to shut down your air conditioner for the season.
Change Air Filters
How often do you change your air filter? You should do it often, it can cause problems with your air conditioner if you don’t. But if you haven’t changed them in a while, make sure you change the filters before you turn on your heat. Let’s give your furnace a fresh start and the best chance of working properly when heating season begins. Don’t start your furnace with dirty filters.
Clean AC Condenser Coils
How clean are your condenser coils? You should hose off the condenser coils at the end of summer. Try and make everything as clean as you can before you start the furnace to begin heating your house. This will also help when summer comes next year. An even better idea would be to call Air Supply. They can come and do a thorough AC cleaning. They will remove the casing and clean it inside the unit. They will also clean and inspect the fins and straighten them if needed. By using Air supply you know it will be done the right way.
Maintain Clearance Around AC Condenser
It is time to get out and do yard work! Go outside before it gets too cold and clear away any bushes and weeds. You don’t want to have anything within 2 feet of the condenser unit. If you have things too close, it can prevent good airflow into the condenser unit. Clearing it away can give your furnace a great chance to start up.
Report AC Problems During Furnace Tune Up
You should get an annual furnace tune-up. If you are having any problems with your air conditioning make a note of it. Any AC performance problems you have experienced during summer, let Air Supply know during your tune-up appointment. It’s a good idea to get your air conditioner running its best before the next summer comes around. This will reduce the risk of having any problems before you actually need the air conditioner next summer.
