Winter is finally over and it’s getting to that time of the year where we wake up our air conditioner after months of not using it. Read more about how to get your air conditioning ready for spring!
After months of not using the air conditioner, thinking that a flick of a button will do the trick might not be the best bet here. In fact, simply doing so could end up costing you more and may even prove to be detrimental to your health.
More than likely, because of not using it, your outside condenser unit would have gathered leaves, dirt, and debris in or around it. Allowing your air conditioner to run while having a cover on could lead to serious inefficiencies and cost you more. If there was no cover, it is important that your outside condenser unit be cleaned before turning on the air conditioner. You want to also ensure that when doing this, that you do not bend the fins.
We’re guessing you have not changed your air filter in a while. I mean who has the time? It was winter cold! But now that spring is approaching, the time to do it is now. Not only does dirt in the air filter make it harder for the air conditioner to run, but it can also cause health issues. A dirty air filter does not stop allergens, pesticides, and other outside irritants from entering your home, putting you and our family at risk. In addition, replacing a dirty air filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.
Annual Air Conditioner Tune-Up
Let’s be frank, an annual air conditioner tune-up will prove to be very cost-effective and ensure that your unit is working at its most efficient. Ultimately, it will extend the life of your air conditioning unit and control your energy consumption with regards to this. It is important that if you have not scheduled your annual air conditioner tune-up, that you do so now.
