As the snow melts away and flowers begin to bloom, spring is just around the corner. It is important to prepare your air conditioning unit for the warmer weather so it is ready for you to use. Here are some tips on preparing your air conditioner for spring.
The first thing you should do is remove any debris that is surrounding the unit. There should be a clear space surrounding the unit for maximal performance.
Inspect the Unit
You should complete an evaluation of the unit. Check to make sure the panels are in proper placement and remove any covers that you put on to protect the coils.
Before turning on the air conditioner for the first time, be sure to replace the air filters in your house. After the winter months, these are often full of dust.
Program Your Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can help save you money and it can improve the efficiency of your system. Some thermostats allow you to set certain zones of your house and to increase or decrease the temperature at certain times.
Once you have prepared your unit for spring, it is important to turn it on for a quick check to make sure it is working. Contact Riverside Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. for more tips on preparing your air conditioner for spring.
