Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

With spring in full swing and summer fast approaching, 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 utilize your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be considering how you will stay comfy this season in Bloomington. The top way to make sure that you will have a cool summer is by switching on your system now, before it gets too humid and you find that you need air conditioner maintenance. Here are a couple of tips to guarantee that your system, and your house, is properly equipped for the heat:

Try it out now!

It really is important to give your system a trial run ASAP. You don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the most blistering day of the year and make your home uncomfortable. So, switching 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 problems. Make sure that cool air is flowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a handful of things to examine before calling the experts at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co:

  • Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a simple mistake and one that is made often, but if you haven’t changed your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be blowing. Simple setback, simple solution!
  • Check the unit outside. Verify to see if there are any obstructions around your system, such as items or dirt, that can jam your air flow and cool air production.
  • Change your filters. As you’ve heard before, this step is vital to refining the performance of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will produce an easier environment for air to flow through.

Once you’ve tried things out – your system is set to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t getting any cool air, it’s time to call in the experts if there are complications. Regular air conditioner service should be on your radar this time of the year nonetheless, so now is the perfect time to inspect every piece of your system before the summer hits. The experts at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co will not only solve the current problem at hand, but they will also tackle any small possible future issues that could turn into bigger problems later.

Chances are that if your home isn’t cooling without difficulty, your system might be deficient in refrigerant based on low levels or perhaps a leak. If you noticed that ice was forming when you checked your outdoor unit, that may be an signal 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 endure over the summer and it can be easy to forget how crucial your system is to your summer comfort. Don’t agonize about your air conditioner breaking down and instead, be proactive about checking and servicing your system before the heat wave strikes.
