The last thing you want during a hot Sun City, NV, summer is for your air conditioner to stop working. Often, people don’t keep their dormant system in good condition in the spring. The following are four tips to make sure your AC system is ready for summer.
Check the Air Filters
If you have a clogged and dirty air filter, it’ll force your air conditioner to overwork. As a result, you’ll strain your air conditioner, paying higher repair and energy costs in the long run. Check your AC system’s filter every month and change it when necessary. We recommend every 30-90 days.
Schedule Routine AC Maintenance
Call an HVAC professional to schedule an AC maintenance service if your system has been off for a while. Routine maintenance and other services are both covered in the manufacturer’s warranty in some cases. A service technician will ensure that your AC system is in good working order and ready to keep your family comfortable during the summer.
Inspect Around the Outdoor Unit
Check the area surrounding your outdoor air conditioning unit for debris and dirt. These can block the exhaust, which could cause the unit to overheat or have other serious issues. As a general rule, try to have at least two feet of clear area around the air conditioner before you turn it on for the cooling season.
Consider Upgrading Your Thermostat
Consider upgrading to a smart thermostat to get the most out of your AC system. A smart thermostat will improve the efficiency of your air conditioner. A smart thermostat also allows you to control the system remotely, so it’s never running when you’re away.
It’s time to prepare your air conditioner for warmer weather. Call Mr. Cool Heating & Air Conditioning today for quality air conditioning repair and maintenance services in Sun City, NV.
