Hotter temps are around the corner and your best defense? Your air conditioner of course. However, when your air conditioning system sits idle for months it does require a bit of TLC to get it back up and running properly.
So act now – on the first sweltering summer day, the last thing you’ll want to do is turn on your AC only to find it doesn’t work. See below for some tips to help get your AC into tiptop shape before the heat really kicks in:
- Remove any obstructions – Look around your outdoor unit. If anything is around it or restricting its airflow, remove it.
- Check/replace your filter – Dirty filters restrict airflow, reduce efficiency, and result in poor indoor air quality. Be sure to check and replace your filter as needed (often once a month).
- Call us for a tune-up! – A tune-up from a Patterson Plumbing HVAC professional is important for ensuring your system’s components are in working order to prevent costly and inconvenient breakdowns later on.
Maintenance and tune-ups are recommended by all manufacturers to provide all of the above benefits and more. While there are some steps you can take on your own to maintain your air conditioning system, it’s best to leave the tune-up process to a Patterson Plumbing & Heating professional. We’re the Pueblo, Colorado area heating and air conditioning tune-up specialists, offering upfront pricing and clean and courteous technicians.
