Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

The weather is really getting hot outside. Have you checked to ensure you’re going to stay cool inside? We may not have reached temperatures where we need to switch on the air conditioner just yet, but now’s the time to give your air conditioner a trial run. You could just find that you’re in need of air conditioner service. The hot days are near and we have some tips for making sure your air conditioner is ready to keep you cool this season.

Test it Now

It’s best to try your system before you really need it. You don’t want to realize on the warmest day of the year that your air conditioner isn’t working. Switch your thermostat to its cooling mode and let it work for a few minutes and check to make sure it’s blowing cool air. If it’s not, there are a few things you can check yourself before contacting us for air conditioner service.

The first and easiest thing to inspect is to ensure you set your system to cool. It’s an honest mistake and quite a few people forget to switch it off the heat setting. If it is currently set to heat, turn it over and your problem just may be solved.

The next thing you can do is check the unit outside and see if there is any debris around your system. Dirt and debris can clog the air flow and affect your system’s ability to create cool air.

As always, check and change your filters. It’s an easy step that can extend the life and efficiency of your system. Air flow is a key part of your cooling system and keeping your filter clean can boost your air flow.

Call the Professionals

Your system is set to cool, the unit has been cleaned and you’re still not receiving cool air. It’s time to call in the pros. Right now is the perfect time to arrange an appointment for routine air conditioner service. Your HVAC technician will check out any small concerns that you have now that could potentially turn into big problems in the future.

If your home isn’t cooling well, it’s likely that your system is just low on refrigerant, which might indicate a leak. If you’ve noticed ice forming on the inside of your outdoor unit, your system’s refrigerant could be running low. An air conditioning expert can charge that up and fix any leaks in your lines.
