Is Your Air Conditioner Ready for Spring?
We’ve educated homeowners before on how to properly shut down their heating systems for the spring and summer months. Today, we will look at the flip side — what you can do to prepare your air conditioner for the warm weather.
How To Prepare Your Air Conditioner for Spring
1. Change your air filters.
This step is one of the easiest and most essential parts of maintaining your HVAC system. Dirty air filters limit the fresh indoor air inside your home and increase wear and tear, which can spike your energy bills.
It’s best to clean or replace your air filters once every one to two months.
2. Clean the condenser coils.
Condenser coils are responsible for releasing heat, and during the offseason, it’s common for them to catch dirt and debris. Don’t let this hinder your HVAC systems performance — refer to your owner’s manual on how to locate and clean the coils.
3. Install a programmable thermostat.
The beginning of spring is the perfect time to get your hands on one of these! These devices will reduce your energy usage by adjusting the temperature in your home based on your daily habits.
4. Schedule a professional AC tune-up.
One of the best ways to prepare your AC for the spring season is by scheduling a tune-up with Dean’s Home Services.
