How to Turn Off Central Air Conditioner for Cold Fall & Winter Seasons & Prepare for Next Spring & Summer

For the people living in Las Vegas, NV, everyone puts their air conditioner through quite the workout. Once the fall season is in full swing, the Vegas summers, sometimes, cool down a bit. As the air conditioning season winds down, it is essential to give your AC unit a little attention. With a little care and maintenance, you can finish up the season with ease and avoid having serious issues when the air conditioning season resumes. Today, we at Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to take the opportunity to offer some tips on how you can prepare your unit for next spring.

>How to Prepare Central Air Conditioning for the Spring

1) Clear Outside AC Condenser Unit.
Around the condenser unit, the dirt, grim, weeds, leaves, other debris and vegetation have likely encroached by the summer’s end. When the clutter and accumulation of compacted soil builds up, the air flow can easily be disrupted, which hinders the overall efficiency of your unit. Cut back all vegetation; prune trees, trim the branches on the bushes and shrubs, also ensure the grass is cut and weeds are pulled around the unit. Use your hoe to gently remove the buildup of dirt and debris. To make sure the air conditioner is properly cleaned, a professional can come clean it alone or in part of maintenance tune-ups.
2) Change Home Air Filter.
The air filter is the most overlooked but yet the simplest part of home maintenance for your overall HVAC system. It is essential to change it out when it needs it. Never let the maintenance exceed 3 months under any circumstances. However, for those with pets, indoor smoking, and people with asthma and/or allergies should be changed every 6-8 weeks. Compacted filters influence the indoor air quality and most importantly, the restricted air flow will first cause the efficiency to drop until it eventually puts too much strain on the unit and it dies.
3) Thermostat Adjustment. As the temperatures cool down, now is the time to get your thermostats adjusted. Whether you have a programmable or Smart thermostat, don’t forget to reflect the cooler temperatures.
4) Schedule a Professional AC Maintenance Tune-Up Service.
In addition to your efforts you should schedule an AC maintenance tune-up with a reputable HVAC company at least once a year in order to preserve the efficiency of your system’s performance. An experienced technician will perform a full inspection and tune-up of your system during this maintenance checkup. After working overtime during the summer months your system will function as efficiently as possible during the upcoming season.
