Here in Southern Nevada temperatures are warming up and homeowners have a short period of time to get their air conditioner ready for the upcoming summer heat. Summertime in Las Vegas gets hot and we need to depend on our home’s air conditioning to help keep us cool down. To ensure your air conditioner works without failure this summer, now is the time to prepare your air conditioner and make sure it is ready. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will share what you as the homeowner can do, to help prepare your home air conditioner and what a qualified HVAC technician can do to ensure you stay cool as the temperatures warm up.
Homeowners Checklist of Summer AC Preparation
As the homeowner, there are a few steps you can take to make sure your air conditioner is prepped and ready for the upcoming summer season. The air conditioning unit should be serviced by an HVAC technician. However, as the homeowner you can begin preparing your HVAC system starting with changing out the air filters. Air filters should be changed out every few months. However, now is a good time to check them if it has been a while. The spring and summer season will bring pollen and more dust in the air. Therefore, you will want to make sure the filters are new and fresh for the season. The next step is to clean all of the dirt and dust off of the vents and air registers to help improve the air conditioner’s efficiency and air quality. Once the air filters and vents are cleaned, you will want to go outside and make sure there are no weeds, and debris around the air conditioner. Ground units often need to be clean and cleared. It is recommended to have 3 feet of clearance around a ground air conditioning unit. For those with roof top air conditioners, you may want the HVAC technician to handle the cleaning around the unit. It can be dangerous climbing around on roof tops. The HVAC technician will clear away any bird nests or debris that may be found around the unit.
Central Air Conditioning Tune Up Maintenance
It is recommended in spring to have your air conditioner serviced by an HVAC technician. They will do a thorough inspection of the air conditioning unit. They will check wiring, re-tighten loose connections as well as screws and bolts. They will make sure you have plenty of coolant and lubricate all moving parts. They will clean what components may be corroded. The technician will also look for any signs of future failure and if a component needs to be replaced. Cooling coils are also cleaned, which is often needed to prevent the unit from icing up during the summer. An additional service that can help improve efficiency and air quality is air duct cleaning. Many HVAC service companies also provide air duct cleaning which helps remove dust and debris inside the air ducts. This helps your indoor air and helps the air conditioner to run much more efficiently.
