We talk about why you should get maintenance on this blog a lot, but we don’t talk about “when” quite as often. This is a tricky question since we’re always happy to perform maintenance on an air conditioner, whether it’s December or June.
However, for homeowners trying to get ahead of the summer rush, scheduling maintenance early in the spring is a fantastic idea. We can provide adjustments, small repairs, and even run a diagnostic test to make sure your air conditioner is ready to cool your home through the entire summer. Maintenance is just that important!
Get Repairs Done Early
Do you remember that pesky issue that came up at the end of summer last year? Well, we hate to break it to you, but that problem is likely still there and affecting your AC system. We urge all homeowners to call our team for repairs early on before the heat hits in full force. This will give you ample opportunity to get the problem fixed while keeping your budget intact.
Change Out the Air Filter at the Start of the Season
The air filter is a vital component of your cooling system and it needs to be changed out every 1-3 months. Also, if your air filter has been sitting unused throughout the months of winter, then it’s important you get it changed now. It’s likely been collecting dust and debris while being inactive, and that’s going to lower your home efficiency over time.
Think About AC Replacement
If your air conditioner could barely make it through last summer, do you think it will successfully cool your home this summer? That’s a difficult question, but one we’re willing to answer with you. Investigate replacing your air conditioner if it’s gotten too old or it’s not working properly anymore.
Uncover Your Vents and Invest in a Ceiling Fan
It’s time to prepare for the heat! Unblock all of your air vents in your home to allow for maximum air circulation. Also, invest in a ceiling fan system to help circulate the cool air throughout your home and lower the temperature an additional couple of degrees.
