Summer is here, and that means it's time to start using your air conditioning system again. But before you turn it on, it's important to check a few things to ensure that it's working properly and efficiently. In this blog post, we will discuss what you should check before starting your air conditioning system this summer.
The air filter in your air conditioning system plays a crucial role in ensuring that the air in your home is clean and healthy. Before you start your air conditioning system, it's essential to check the air filter and clean or replace it if necessary. A dirty air filter can reduce the efficiency of your air conditioning system and even lead to system failure.
The ductwork in your home is responsible for delivering cool air throughout your living spaces. Over time, ductwork can develop leaks or cracks that can result in cool air escaping and wasted energy. Before turning on your air conditioning system, inspect the ductwork and seal any leaks or gaps with duct tape or sealant.
The outdoor unit of your air conditioning system can accumulate dirt, leaves, and debris over time. This can restrict airflow and reduce the efficiency of your system. Before starting your air conditioning system, clean the outdoor unit with a garden hose and remove any debris that has accumulated on or around the unit.
The thermostat in your home is responsible for controlling the temperature of your air conditioning system. Before turning on your air conditioning system, check the thermostat to make sure it's working correctly. If the thermostat is not functioning properly, you may need to replace it.
To ensure that your air conditioning system is working correctly and efficiently, it's essential to schedule a maintenance service with a professional HVAC technician. A professional technician can inspect your system, identify any potential issues, and perform necessary repairs to ensure that your air conditioning system is running efficiently all summer long.
