How to Prepare Your Air Conditioning Unit for the Summer

When it comes to summer one of the only things that makes the extreme heat bearable is air conditioning. That being said, you cannot simply switch it on when the season begins without first going through a few steps to help get it ready for the amount of work it is going to go through.

The first step to getting your air conditioning ready for summer is a good cleaning. This means replacing air filters, disconnecting hoses and cleaning out any debris that may have built up, cleaning off vents, and wiping down the unit to free it of any dirt and grime that may have built up over the winter months of disuse. Cleaning your unit is going to help insure the air that you get out of it is clean and safe for your family.

The next step is routine maintenance. If you have an air conditioner service company that you regularly use you may want to schedule a routine appointment so that a skilled technician can look through your ac to check for hoses that may need to be replaced, belts that are wearing out, or any other issue that should be resolved before the unit is used. This is going to help prolong the life of your air conditioner.

The last step you are going to want to take is to allow your air conditioner to run on a lower setting for a while so that it can get back into the routine of regular use. You do not want to take an air conditioner that has been off all season and turn it on full blast. Allowing your air conditioner to prime itself essentially is going to help keep your air conditioner working year after year.
