Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Cooling

Summer is upon us! Many of us are excited for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To enahance your comfort and actually relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for the heat. One of the keys to a fun summer in Branchville is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. consistently recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning this season.

  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter consistently! Replace the filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold season. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s functionality. mow the grass, remove any debris and eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.

These straightforward steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
