How to Prepare Your AC for the Upcoming Season

There are a few ways in which you can prepare your air conditioning system for the hot season. You can do this step-by-step on your own, or call in a professional from one of the local  AC repair companies to assist you with this and other preventative maintenance work.

Replace Filters

It’s important to replace filters about once per year. This is a good idea so you can avoid getting allergens in your home or having a blocked airflow.

Measure them so that you know the proper size.

Condenser Work

Check the lines that lead to and from your condenser. If you need repairs on them, call in an HVAC professional. Turn your unit off at the breaker or if there’s a power switch on the unit itself, and then clean it. You can use an AC coil cleaner to clean out the coils. Spray it on then let the foam sit for around 10 minutes. Rinse the outside of the unit and put the top back on.

At this point, you’re ready to begin using your AC system. This will help you maintain a cooler home all summer long. If you need any assistance, be sure to reach out to a company and have a technician come to do a routine check if you notice anything odd or about once per year to do preventative maintenance.
