Ways to Prepare Your AC For The Summer Months

With summer right around the corner, it’s time to think about getting your air conditioner in tip-top shape before the hot weather hits!

When you take proper care of your AC, you reduce the likelihood of unexpected repairs.

Not only do you avoid the cost and inconvenience of repairs, but you’ll save money on monthly utility bills.

A well-maintained AC unit also means a home that’s comfortably cool, no matter how hot it is outside.

Prepare Your AC For The Summer Months:

Schedule a Summer Tune-up

Be proactive! Don’t wait until you need emergency air conditioning repair before calling a professional.

Trusted heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals will be able to assess your air conditioning unit and perform the necessary tune-up before using it.

A tune-up includes cleaning the coils and condenser, checking refrigerant levels, electrical connections, and condensate lines.

Also, the technician will note any maintenance they perform during this time.

Replace Dirty Filters

Replacing old and dirty filters is one thing you can do regularly to keep your AC unit running efficiently.

Filters that are dirty with dirt and dust forces your AC and blower to work much harder, which means higher electric bills.

If you can locate your filter, remove and discard it. If you’re not sure what size, check the size on the old filter.

Find the dimensions on the cardboard frame. Replace the filter at least twice a year, especially if you live in an area that’s especially dusty, windy, or prone to heavy pollen.

Have Your Ductwork Cleaned & Inspected

For your entire HVAC system to work at its peak, the ductwork must be clean and in good condition.

It doesn’t make much sense to lose cool, conditioned air to a build-up of dust and pet dander, or worse yet, a disconnected or damaged air duct.

A professional HVAC technician can clean and inspect your entire duct system, as well as repair any damaged or disconnected portions.

Keeping your air conditioning unit in top shape requires a little thought and planning, but your efforts will be worth it in the end.

Use the tips above to ensure your air conditioning unit performs at its best, so you can avoid unexpected air conditioning repairs, and keep your home cool and comfortable all summer long.

Now is the time to prepare your AC for summer.

AC Maintenance

We know the importance of air conditioning maintenance to keep your system running. 

This past year we had Kurt, with Guardian Heating and Air, out to our house to install a mini-split system. We took Kurt‘s recommendation on the sizing of what we needed for our home. WE  COULDN’T BE HAPPIER!!!!! Kurt’s attention to detail and level of professionalism made for a quick and clean installation.  I work as a heavy civil construction superintendent, and having good contractors with a high level of integrity is key to a successful project. I may be in a different trade, but Guardian Heating and Air is somebody I would like to have on my team.
