Getting Ready for Air Conditioning Season

April 30, 2016

Summer isn’t here yet but the temperatures are definitely warming up and that means it’s time for air conditioning season. Before the temperatures soar and you’re running your air conditioning unit constantly to stay comfortable, remember to call your air conditioning technician to stop by and perform your yearly ac maintenance.

In addition to an air conditioning tune-up, there are a few other ways you can prepare for the cooling season before warmer weather is officially here to stay.

  • Clean Your System

We don’t mean for you to take you’re A/C system apart, let a professional do that, but you can clean up the space around your system to remove twigs and debris that have made their way to your air conditioner during the windy winter and stormy spring. Mow the grass around the A/C and prune back any overgrown bushes or vegetation to make sure your cooling equipment is clear of debris. Keeping the airway clear can help keep your system running properly.

·     Change Your Home’s Air Filters

Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will swap out your home’s basic air filters when they conduct your air conditioning tune-up as part of your regular A/C maintenance. You can (and should) also replace your HVAC air filters in between maintenance visits, and it’s advised that you do so at least every one to two months for optimal performance. An unchanged filter accumulates dust, allergens, and germs so for the health of the people living in your home and the efficiency of your air conditioner, make sure you’re changing those filters as part of your standard cooling equipment service. Note that a clogged filter could even damage your air conditioner.

  • Block the Sun

Help block the sun from heating up your home by hanging blackout drapes or window shades. This may also help protect your furniture and floors from fading or experiencing sun damage over time.

·     Check Alarm Batteries

If you didn’t spend daylight savings checking the batteries in your smoke and CO detectors, now it the perfect time. Remember to also check the batteries in your thermostat to make sure it is functioning properly so you don’t end up calling an AC service technician because your air conditioner isn’t working and then it ends up just being the thermostat. You could also consider purchasing a programmable thermostat so you can adjust the temperature while you’re away and save money on your heating and cooling bills.

An annual AC tune-up service could make your air conditioner up to 30% more efficient and save you money on your energy bills. Call Abbey Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning today to make sure your air conditioner is prepared to keep you cool and comfortable all summer and learn about our spring specials on AC Precision tune-ups.
