Spring is in the air, so that means it’s time to make sure your AC is ready to take on the warm weather ahead. From scheduling air conditioner maintenance to upgrading your thermostat, there are a number of tasks you can do to get your AC ready!
Schedule Air Conditioner Maintenance
The best way to get your AC ready for warmer weather is to schedule a routine tune-up. Maintenance performed by a certified cooling technician can help ensure your system operates efficiently and effectively all summer long. It can also help prevent common problems from turning into expensive repairs.
Clean Around Outdoor Unit
Central air conditioners have an outdoor unit that house the compressor and its performance can be significantly affected by debris that collects over time. To help improve the system’s cooling performance—make sure to clear any branches or leaves that have built-up. Be sure to check around the condenser throughout the spring and summer for debris—especially after storms.
Another way to maximize AC performance is to upgrade to a programmable thermostat. Unlike older thermostats, a programmable option allows you to easily maintain the desired temperature consistently and evenly throughout your home. Programmable thermostats can also be set to automatically adjust the temperature, so you can focus on relaxing this summer without having to constantly make adjustments.
