Prepare Your AC for Summer

Cooling

With warmer temps nearby, now is the time to take a look at your air conditioner. When your air conditioner is working at peak efficiency, it can cut a large amount off your energy costs! Likewise, if your air conditioning unit is in need of service, it could significantly increase your bills and cause preventable and life-shortening wear and tear on your system. Having your Symbiont Service Corp expert complete air conditioning service at least each year is crucial to keeping your system running efficiently for a while. He or she can make sure the unit is working correctly and can identify looming concerns before they happen, saving you even more money.

Your expert air conditioning service should include, but is not limited to:

  • Replacement of, or cleaning of, air filters
  • Cleaning of condensate drain, blower components and condenser coil
  • Lubrication of all moving parts and tightening of electrical components
  • Performance of cooling cycle assessment

DIY Preparation

In addition to setting up your skilled air conditioning service, there are tasks you can do now and intermittently throughout the year to ensure your air conditioner is at its best.

Now:

  • Uncover your outdoor unit if you kept it covered during cooler months. Using your AC with a cover, coil blanket or lid on it may harm your system and leave you needing big repairs or even replacement.
  • Clean the area surrounding your AC. Ensure there are no shrubs, weeds, flowers, etc. growing around your AC unit because they may interfere with airflow through your AC. Also make sure there aren’t piles of leaves or mulch obstructing any part of it.

Throughout the year:

  • While your filters can be cleaned or changed during your skilled air conditioning service, it’s important for you to inspect them monthly and swap them out per the manufacturer’s suggestion. All homes have different needs when talking about air filter replacement, depending on factors like owning house pets or performing home construction throughout the year.

Having your ducts cleaned regularly will also be sure your air conditioner is able to operate efficiently and will help you have a comfy home. By following these simple, proactive steps, you’ll be doing everything you can to be sure your air conditioner will be prepped for whatever summer has in store.
