With each passing day, we get closer and closer to the warm spring and summer months. This means many things for homeowners, including the process of preparing your air conditioner for many hours of service.
Here are several things you can do to ensure that your AC unit is ready when the weather heats up:
· Clean the outdoor unit. Is there any plant growth in close proximity to the unit? How about grass clippings? Anything that’s in the way should be removed once and for all. Along with this, use a brush or cloth to clean the coil from the fins.
· Clean indoor ductwork. This isn’t a job for the homeowner. Instead, you need to call in a professional to complete this task. It may not seem like a big deal, but you want your ductwork to be clean and clear when it’s time to turn your AC on.
· A tune-up never hurts. Hire an HVAC professional to inspect your system, make any necessary fixes or upgrades, and ensure that it’s running efficiently. This may cost you a few dollars, but it’s much better than neglecting your system and running into a more costly repair down the line.
