Getting Your Air Conditioning Ready for Summer

Air Conditioning

If you take a look at your calendar, you can see that spring is finally here and hopefully, the winter weather is a thing of the past. Depending on where you live, you may already have signs of warmer weather on the horizon, with temperatures climbing into the eighties. It will not be long now before your thoughts turn to swimming pools, the beach and the hot months of July and August. While you prepare for all of this mentally, think about getting your home ready for all of this as well. In particular, you need to make sure that your air conditioning is primed for the summer weather ahead. Now is as good a time as any to take a look at your AC and see if it is fit to go.

Some Things You Can Do

There are some basic steps that you can take on your own to check out your air conditioning and make sure it is prepared for regular use. Most homeowners may not be familiar with the intricacies of a central air system, and you are better off leaving major air condition repair to experts like American Clean Air and Heating, but there are some things you can do to that can help, such as:

  • Change Air Filters – If you know where the air filters are, you can easily swap them out on your own. After sitting for months without regular use, they are going to need changing. Experts recommend you change them every thirty days or so if you use your system regularly, so starting the season out fresh is a good idea.
  • Look for Energy Saving Efforts – While this may not involve your air conditioning alone, now might be a good time for you to think about doing things like upgrading your thermostat. Newer technology has created much more advanced thermostats that give you better control over the temperature in your home, even giving you Wi-Fi access to set the temperature while you are away. Upgrading here can save you money on your utility bill.
  • Arrange for Maintenance – It is always a good idea, before the summer season begins, to have an HVAC expert come into your home and look over your system. A professional can come in, do some basic cleaning and maintenance, check over everything, and make any minor or major repairs you might need so that your AC is perfect for use.
