The weather is something that we start to get used to. It goes from cold to hot throughout the year and that means that we need to adjust. The seasons are the same year after year and most people know that when the spring weather comes in Las Vegas, NV especially, the heat is close behind. That means that you need to be ready to switch from heating your home to cooling it. When a pilot gets ready for a flight he does not just hop on the plane and take off. They have an entire series of checks that are required before they are able to leave. The same should be said for your air conditioning unit. The unit is a huge part of your home comfort and you should take the time to care for it and ensure that it is used correctly. There are some checks that you should do when you are ready to stop heating your home and start using the air conditioner.
Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning Outlines the Steps & Checks You Should Take Before Your Turn On Your Air Conditioner
Reset Your Thermostat: You want to make sure that your thermostat is in the right setting before you switch it on. The thermostat is the part of the unit that actually tells it what is needs to be doing. Whether that is heating the house or cooling it and what temperature that it needs to get the home to. The settings you use in the winter will be different than the ones that you use in the spring and summer. Be sure to look at the thermostat and correct all the settings so that they are right for the weather. This should be done before you move the switch from heat to cool.
Filters Need to be Replaced: You also want to make sure that you have clean and fresh filters in your unit. The return air is usually in a common area and near the thermostat. This is where the filter is placed and you want to make sure that you replace them on a regular basis. You also want to make sure you put a new filter in when you switch from cool to heat and back to cool again. This will ensure that any dust and debris that may be on the unit can be caught better when it turns on and starts to run.
Clear Out Drain Lines: There is a condensation line that is used when your unit has too much condensation and needs to release it. The problem comes when the primary line is clogged and then the secondary line is used. This line is often near a window and will drip down the side of the house where you are likely to notice. This means you are one step closer to a potential leak. It is best to ensure that these lines are clean and clear before you turn in the air conditioner.
