Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready For Summer

Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready For Summer

When the temperature rises, don’t be caught simmering in the hot summer heat. 

The last thing you want on the first scorching day of summer is to find your Central Air Conditioner doesn’t work.

Now is the perfect time to get your Air Conditioner ready for summer.

Tips to prepare your Air Conditioner for the summer months

Schedule AC Maintenance

We know what you’re asking: “But why would I get maintenance now? I haven’t even run my Air Conditioner yet!”

We know that’s the point. When you schedule air conditioner maintenance before the heavy cooling season, you’re ensuring that any minor problems are resolved before the Air Conditioner starts running non-stop.

In addition, scheduling a maintenance visit now prevents those minor problems from turning into more significant issues and compromising your comfort when it needs it most in the middle of a Colorado summer.

Replace dirty filters

Replacing old and dirty filters is one thing you can do regularly to keep your Air Conditioner unit running more efficiently.

Filters clogged with dirt and dust force your Air Conditioner and blower to work much harder, which means higher electric bills. 

If you can locate your filter, remove and discard it. If you’re not sure what size, check the size on the old filter; the dimensions will be printed on the cardboard frame. 

Have your ductwork inspected

For your HVAC system to work at its peak, the ductwork must be in good condition.

It doesn’t make much sense to lose cool air to a disconnected or damaged air duct.

A professional HVAC technician can inspect your entire duct system and repair damaged or disconnected portions.

Your air conditioning system is vital to your family’s comfort over the summer months, and making sure your system is ready to go when summer arrives is always a good idea.
