Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

With spring in progress and summer just around the corner, it’s time to prep all features of our lives for the warmer weather, and that involves our homes. It may not be time to use your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be contemplating how you will stay comfortable this season in Huntsville. The greatest way to guarantee that you will have a comfortable summer is by turning on your system now, before it gets too hot and you discover that you need air conditioner repairs. Here are a few tips to ensure your system, and your house, is prepared for the heat:

Try it out now!

It really is helpful to give your system a trial run ASAP. You don’t want your air conditioner to break down on the most blistering day of the year and make your home uncomfortable. So, positioning your thermostat to its cooling mode and allowing it to run, even for a few minutes, will be an excellent test that can save you a lot of future issues. Make sure that cool air is moving into your home, and if it’s not, here are a few things to check before calling the professionals at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc:

  • Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a common mistake and one that is made regularly, but if you haven’t changed your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be blowing. Simple problem, easy solution!
  • Check the unit outside. Reassess to see if there are any barriers around your system, such as debris or dirt, that can block your air flow and cool air production.
  • Change your filters. As you’ve heard before, this step is critical to refining the work of your air conditioning system. With sanitary and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will establish an easier environment for air to flow through.

Once you’ve tested things out – your system is adjusted to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t receiving any cool air, it’s time to call in the professionals if there are complications. Annual air conditioner service should be on your radar right now anyhow, so now is the ideal time to inspect every piece of your system before the heat hits. The experts at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc will not only repair the current difficulty at hand, but they will also address any small likely issues that could turn into bigger concerns later.

Chances are that if your home isn’t cooling without difficulty, your system might be deficient in refrigerant based on low levels or possibly a leak. If you noted that ice was establishing when you inspected your outdoor unit, that may be an indicator that you need more refrigerant. During an air conditioner maintenance check, our professionals can fix any leaks in your lines or refrigerant shortages.

Everyone relies on their air conditioner to survive the summer and it can be easy to forget how crucial your system is to your summer relaxation. Don’t fret about your air conditioner breaking down and instead, be practical about checking and servicing your system before the heat wave arrives.
