Preparing Your Air Conditioner for Warmer Weather

preparing_ac_springOnce spring rolls around, everyone’s thoughts turn to the warm summer days to come. You may decide it’s time to get the house clean and work on some of those home improvement projects you’ve been putting off. When you exit hibernation mode and start that spring cleaning, don’t forget your air conditioning system. Preparing your AC for summertime helps ensure you’ll enjoy greater comfort this summer. And, when your air conditioning system is running well, it will be more efficient – and that means you’ll save on your utility bills.

Homeowners can take positive action in making sure their air conditioning systems are performing optimally. Here are some things you can do to prepare your system for warmer weather:

  • Change your air filters monthly. If your filters are dirty, your AC system will have to work harder.
  • Clean around your outdoor unit. Remove vegetation and debris that might be surrounding the unit.
  • Remove registers and inspect ductwork, removing any visible dirt, pet hair, and debris.
  • Make sure to schedule your annual preventive maintenance with Family Danz.
