Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

With spring in full swing and summer imminent, it’s time to set up all aspects of our lives for the warmer weather, and that involves our homes. It may not be time to turn on your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be considering how you will stay comfortable this season in East Bernard. The best way to guarantee that you will have a cool summer is by switching on your system now, before it gets too warm and you find that you need air conditioner service. Here are a handful of tricks to make sure your system, and your house, is ready for the heat:

Try it out now!

It really is important to give your system a practice run sooner rather than later. You don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the most blistering day of the year and make your home uncomfortable. Rather, setting your thermostat to its cooling mode and letting it run, even for a few minutes, will be a perfect check that can save you a lot of future problems. Ensure that cool air is flowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a few things to examine before calling the professionals at E.B. Air, LLC:

  • Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a common mistake and one that is made often, but if you haven’t flipped your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be blowing. Simple issue, simple solution!
  • Check the unit outside. Double check to see if there are any obstructions around your system, such as items or dirt, that can block your air flow and cool air production.
  • Change your filters. As always, this step is vital to refining the functionality of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will establish an comfortable 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 specialists if there are complications. Annual air conditioner service should be on your radar at this time every year anyway, so now is the ideal time to look at every aspect of your system before the summer hits. The specialists at E.B. Air, LLC will not only repair the current difficulty at hand, but they will also deal with any small possible future issues that could turn into bigger concerns later.

Chances are that if your home isn’t cooling without difficulty, your system might be deficient in refrigerant based on low levels or possibly a leak. If you observed that ice was establishing when you checked your outdoor unit, that may be an indicator that you need more refrigerant. In an air conditioner maintenance check, our experts can fix any leaks in your lines or refrigerant shortages.

Everyone trusts their air conditioner to endure over the summer and it can be easy to ignore how vital your system is to your summer comfort. Don’t fret about your air conditioner failing and instead, be proactive about assessing and servicing your system before the heat wave hits.
