The weather is already warming up here in Indiana, and you’ve probably been tempted to turn on your air conditioning. Some of you may have already flipped the switch to cool down your home. If so, that’s okay…it’s not too late to take a few steps toward preparing your air conditioner for the busy summer season.
Here are 3 easy tasks to complete before turning on your AC:
Clear Debris from the Outdoor Unit
The winter winds whip up all sorts of debris, which can end up clogged in your outdoor unit. Leaves, sticks, trash, and other items will hinder the performance of your cooling system, and you should take a few minutes to remove anything you see. As always, make sure the unit is not running before reaching in or around it.
Check the Air Filter
A clogged filter is a major issue. Not only will it increase the amount of dust in your home, a dirty filter can also cause your system to run poorly. If you are comfortable checking and replacing your air filter, do so before you start your system for the first time. If the filter is dirty or damaged, take the time to replace it now. If you aren’t able to perform this task yourself, we’re just a phone call away!
