Spring Time AC Tips

clear out around AC

Keep the area around your outside unit clear of bushes.

It is starting to heat up again and that means using your AC is in the not-too-distant future. This fact has inspired us to put together this short blog that will give you steps you can take to help your AC unit come back on-line the best way possible.

When an appliance as complex as an AC sits for months without being used, steps should be taken before it is used to make sure its operation starts back without a hitch. We have put together these seven five steps you can take to make sure this happens.

  1. Change The Filter. Even if the filter doesn’t appear to be that dirty, it has been sitting for months with old dust on it and who knows what could be happening in it/on it. The smart safe thing to do is to get a brand new filter for your unit.
  2. Make Way For Drainage. Make sure the drainage hole that allows the condensation to run off is clear of any debris. Make sure it is not being blocked by anything.
  3. Cut and Clear Around Your Outside Unit. Make sure there is nothing interfering with the blade. Make sure the fans is not being impeded. Make sure no weeds or bushes are near the unit.
  4. Spray Wash Your Coils. You should take a garden hose and spray out the sides of the outdoor evaporator unit. Dust and debris may have collected in this area of the unit over the winter. You need to make sure it is clear so the unit can “breathe”.
  5. Add a Smart Thermostat. Newer thermostats help regulate the house temperature when you are home or away to maximize efficiency. When you are away or at work, the thermostats can bring the house up to 80 and an hour before you get home it can bring it back down to whatever temperature you desire. This thermostat also gives the unit a nice break during the day, when it is hottest outside.

If you do these simple things, you are truly doing your part to help your unit get going again and preventing problems in the near future.
