Now: Uncover your outdoor unit if you kept it covered during colder months. Using your AC with a cover, coil blanket or lid on it may hurt your system and end with the need for large repairs or even replacement. Pick up the area by your AC. Be sure there are no shrubs, weeds, flowers, etc. growing near your AC unit because they could inhibit airflow through your AC. Also be sure there aren’t piles of leaves or mulch blocking any aspect of it. Through the year: While your filters can be cleaned or swapped out during your professional air conditioning service, it’s important for you to look at them each month and change them per the manufacturer’s suggestion. Every home has it’s own needs when dealing with air filter replacement, depending on aspects like owning house pets or doing home construction through the year. Having your ducts cleaned routinely will also make sure your air conditioner is able to operate efficiently and will help you maintain a comfy home. By sticking to these simple, proactive steps, you’ll be doing everything you can to make sure your air conditioner will be prepped for whatever summer offers.
