It is generally a good idea to consider doing some basic air conditioning maintenance on your air conditioning at the beginning of every cooling season. Harsh winters, such as when the “polar vortex” gets going, are especially tough on outdoor equipment. These ultra-low negative temperature spikes, along with the extended times below freezing, can affect your home air conditioning system’s spring start up. But with a few checks and a little effort, you can help to insure a trouble-free summer cooling season.
Here are 7 important things to check before switching the thermostat to cooling
- Inspect the outdoor Unit
- Remove any condenser covers, coil blankets, or lids
- Repair or replace any damaged pipe insulation
- Remove any debris from the outdoor coil
- Change the air filters
- Check the coil drainage hose
- Clean the supply vents and return
These steps for your air conditioning maintenace can be performed by you the homeowner. However, to ensure that your air conditioning unit is working efficiently, it would be a good idea to have a HVAC professional complete an air conditioning maintenance check. They will insure that your units are running efficiently and by maintaining them properly help reduce costly repairs.
