Spring has officially arrived and it’s not long until the warm weather follows suit. While the idea of summer ahead is very exciting, it’s important to be prepared for it by preparing your air conditioner in the spring. If you’re ready for summer but you’re not sure your air conditioner is too, here are a few simple things you can do this spring to make sure you’re covered when you need your air conditioner the most.
Change Your Furnace Filter
Throughout the summer, your air conditioner pushes cool air through your furnace to distribute to the rest of your home. This is why it’s so important to keep on top of changing your furnace filter regularly all year long. If you haven’t changed your furnace filter in the last 90 days, make sure to do so when you’re preparing your air conditioner this spring.
Clean Your Outdoor Unit
During the winter, a lot can accumulate in and around your outdoor air conditioner unit. This spring, take the time to clean on top of and around your air conditioner to rid it of any mud, dirt, long grass, leaves, branches, and any other natural debris that may clog your unit when it’s time to turn it on.
Give Your Air Conditioner A Test Run
On a more mild spring day, take the time to test run your air conditioner. Turn it on for one full cycle and observe how it works. If you notice any odd or new sounds, smells, or behaviours from your air conditioner, be sure to write them down to let the HVAC experts know when they come in for your next maintenance visit.
The best thing you can do for your air conditioner this spring to ensure that it’s up and running is to schedule annual preventative maintenance with the experts at Delta. When you choose to schedule maintenance for your air conditioner this spring, you’re ensuring that your air conditioner is going to be working its best and most efficiently, and you’re making sure you won’t experience any sudden middle-of-summer air conditioner breakdowns this year.
