Time To Think About A/C Maintenance

Posted: April 4, 2022

Make Sure Your Cooling Unit Can Handle the Heat

Although we’ve just turned the corner into spring, we know the weather will be slowly warming up. In fact, April 1 marks the official beginning of the cooling season.

Before you know it, the summer heat—and oppressive humidity–will be upon us. That’s why you want to make sure your central air conditioning system is fully prepared!

After a long hibernation, your A/C system is in need of some tender loving care–also known as a tune-up! That’s one reason why maintenance is important – and why you should be thinking about scheduling your annual A/C maintenance soon before we get busy with seasonal emergency service calls.

Regular maintenance can address your air conditioner’s minor aches and pains before they become full-blown breakdowns.

What Else You Can Do to Get Ready

Although a comprehensive air conditioner tune-up is not a do-it-yourself project, there are some things you can do in preparation for the cooling season.

  • Test your AC unit. Briefly run your A/C to check for any problems; that way you can get your equipment fixed long before the heat settles in. Do not do this unless outdoor temperatures have been above 60 degrees for a day or two.
  • Clear any obstructions around the outdoor unit. Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris from around your outdoor unit.
  • Have your ductwork checked and then consider sealing your ducts to improve your indoor air quality and lower your home energy bills.
  • Have a Plan. Keeping your AC system running efficiently is one of the many benefits of having an Air Conditioning Service Plan. We also offer Heat Pump Service Plans.
