Spring is in the air and summer is right around the corner, so now is the time to dust off your A/C and have a little maintenance performed through a convenient service club.
It can be tempting to take care of everything yourself when it comes to HVAC systems; however, when it comes to being safe, it is best to rely on a service club rather than service your A/C unit yourself. Even though it may seem like a simple process, there are high voltages and currents involved. Some basic maintenance that needs to be performed this spring to ensure you have an enjoyable, comfortable summer include:
- Filter Freshening: Clogged or dirty filters are an air conditioners worst enemy and reduce efficiency drastically. A regularly changed filter is able to lower energy use by up to 15%.
- Systems Check: A simple check of all the ins and outs of your A/C system’s electrical components in order to make sure everything is in good working order should be performed.
- Clean Coils: Coils can easily become dirty throughout the later days of fall and throughout the winter. In addition to making sure filters are clean and ready to go, the coils should also get a thorough cleaning.
Something you can do to help ease the process of a spring maintenance visit is to (first make sure your unit is unplugged) give it a good wipe down and clean around the outside of your air conditioner, writing down any questions you may have so you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything that comes to mind.
However, the ultimate step you can take to ensure your AC has a proper tune-up this spring is to sign up for a professional service club. This regular maintenance plan will ensure your air conditioning is ready to go as soon as the temps increase and will provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your HVAC is well-maintained and in the best shape possible year-round.
