Spring Preparation Check List

Wondering how to prepare your air conditioner for spring weather? Here are a few great tips.

  • Replace Your AC Filter: How often do you replace your air conditioner’s filter? If you want a healthy, high performing air conditioning system then you should replace your filter about once a season. Your air conditioner’s filter is responsible for keeping your unit free of any debris or contaminants that can disrupt the function of your air conditioner. Normally, we suggest that you have a professional service your HVAC system always but replacing your filter is a simple step that you can do all on your own.
  • Upgrade Your Thermostat: If you aren’t already enjoying the technology of a smart thermostat then now is the time to make the switch. Smart thermostats are so great because they work for you. They learn your schedule and work around it, highlight opportunities for you to save on energy, and help boost your home comfort. Another huge perk of smart thermostats is their remote Wi-Fi capabilities. You’ll never have to come home to a hot house again when you upgrade your thermostat.
  • Clean Your Outdoor Unit: Sometimes your outdoor unit gets caked up with debris throughout fall and winter. Your air conditioner works by absorbing indoor air and pushing it outside. If your outdoor unit is blocked then that means the heat can’t get outside easily. It makes your system work harder. This decreases your air conditioner’s lifespan and increases your heating bills. Pick out any debris you see (leaves, tree branches, brush, etc.) and then call a professional for a deep cleaning.
