How to Prepare Your Air Conditioner for Summer
It’s never too early to start preparing your home for warm weather! When the temperatures start climbing, you’ll want your air conditioner to be functioning in top condition. The Barton Boys have years of experience in the industry and are ready to help prepare your AC. We recommend you take these steps now to ensure your air conditioning system is in tiptop shape when the summer heat starts to swelter!
Thoroughly Clean Your System
One of the easiest steps you can take to prepare your air conditioning unit or furnace is by replacing the filter in your furnace or air handler. A filter catches debris and dust to ensure your system is providing your home with clean air. About every 3 months (or monthly during severe dust or smoke), you’ll want to clean or replace the filter so the system operates smoothly. It’s also a good idea to clear the outside of your AC unit and condenser coils of debris, leaves and dirt.
Call A Certified Technician For A Checkup
Before you start tinkering with your air conditioning system, you might want to call a professional. There are many components that make up heating and cooling units. If you are not experienced it can be extremely dangerous (and costly) so it’s better to call a technician that is skilled and knowledgeable like those at The Barton Boys. Rather than taking your home comfort or safety into your own hands, a professional technician will provide you with a thorough analysis and solution to your problems.
Upgrade Your Cooling System
How long have you had your air conditioner? If your cooling system is more than 12 to 15 years old, it is likely time for a replacement. Manufacturers are making air conditioning units that are more efficient and technically advanced than ever. Depending on your budget and system preference, companies like Bryant offer a range of cooling products. Never had AC and don’t have ductwork? No problem! Ductless heat pumps by Daikin may just be your solution.
