3 Ways To Get Your Central Air Conditioner Ready For Spring

Posted on

Spring will be here before you know it, and when the first hot day rolls around, and you want to turn on your air conditioner, you want your air conditioner to be ready to go. To get your air conditioner ready for spring, be sure to clean off your vents, change out the air filter, and of course, get an inspection.

Clean Off Your Vents

If you don't use the vents in your home for your heating system in the winter, you want to make sure that all the vents in your home are ready to go for the hot weather. Check each vent in your home. Make sure that the vent is open and that nothings is on top of the vent or obstructing the air that will be coming from the vent.

You may also want to wipe down the inside and outside of the vent with a damp cloth to remove any built up dust that may be sitting on your vent. You don't want that dust blasted into the air when you turn on your air conditioner for the first time.

Change Out The Filter

Change out your air filter, even if you don't think the filter in your air conditioner got that much use. When your air conditioner experiences issues, most of the time, it is related to a dirty air filter.

When your air filter is dirty, your air conditioner may shut down if it can't pull enough air through its system. Your house may not cool off properly and you may even think your thermostat is to blame.

The truth is that the filter in your air conditioning system plays an incredibly important role in keeping your air conditioner functioning properly. Be sure to clean and change out your air filter on a regular basis.

Get An Annual Inspection

Finally schedule an annual inspection before spring arrives. That way, you will not have to compete with all the individuals getting annual inspections and maintenance done once spring actually arrives. You may even be able to score a good deal on an annual inspection by getting your inspection done at the end of winter instead of the start of spring.

An annual inspection by an appliance repair company is one of the best ways to spot issues with your air conditioner and to perform preventative maintenance in advance.

Get your air conditioner ready for spring by preparing the vents inside of your home, investing in a new air filter, and getting your unit inspected and taken care of before spring arrives.
