Here’s your checklist to get your air conditioner ready for the heat and humidity. Keep your family comfortable and happy by following this easy springtime homeowners list brought to you by your friends at Airmax Inc. We’ve been performing reliable and reasonably-priced air conditioning maintenance in Celina, TX for more than 29 years. Here’s how to make sure your AC is ready for spring.
- Clean up the backyard. If it’s been awhile since you did a clean sweep on the back porch or patio, get that area looking fresh for spring. While you’re sprucing up the place, remember to make sure the area around your outdoor AC condenser is free of branches and any debris. If your laundry room is near the condenser, check that the heat vent from your dryer is clean. Lint buildup can easily get trapped in a condenser if it’s close by so keep on top of maintenance and cleaning for both if this is your situation.
- Get the condenser ready for more performance. It’s a sure thing you’ll be running your AC more as the weather warms up for spring so help your air conditioner’s performance by cleaning your condenser. To do this, turn off the power to your condenser using the circuit breaker to make sure it’s totally off. Use the spray nozzle attachment on your garden hose to get into the condenser and wash out dirt buildup from the last number of months since you cleaned it. Move the water up and down the condenser with some circling patterns to really get to the grime.
- Change your air filters every month. You should be changing filters all year long to protect the inside of your air conditioner. We recommend monthly changes especially in the hotter months because frequent use and more pollen in the air will cause the filter to fill up with dirt faster than in relatively cooler months. Get several filters at once on your next trip to the hardware store to make this task easier. It will extend the lifespan of your air conditioner and also help keep your home air quality at its best.
- Get a seasonal maintenance appointment. If it’s been a year or more since you had a professional technician look at your AC, it’s overdue for air conditioning maintenance in Celina, TX. Waiting can cause a small problem to grow into a costly repair and leave your family sweltering in the heat. Getting an hour-long appointment will ensure your AC is working at its best and let your technician remove trapped dirt, lubricate moving parts, and diagnose any small issues early on. As a bonus, you’ll also save on monthly energy bills with the increased efficiency of a maintenance visit.
