Time to Get Your Air Conditioning in Order!
Spring is here!
The weather is finally breaking after a long and chilly winter! That means it’s time to get your home into shape for the fun and excitement that comes with warm weather. From turning over the garden to cleaning out the garage, there are so many early spring tasks at hand, it can seem overwhelming! Don’t let your home’s Air conditioning system fall to the wayside during this crucial weather transition.
Earlier this year, we covered the basics to prep your home’s heating system for the end of winter. Once that’s squared away, you should really get your home’s Air Conditioning systems looked at as well. The warm weather sneaks up quickly, and you don’t want to be stuck with a malfunctioning cooling unit when it happens.
An air conditioning system that hasn’t been properly maintained early in the season can cause air quality problems, and can make existing problems with the equipment worse if they aren’t caught soon enough.
Common Air Conditioning Problems
Dirty Filters – Filters that haven’t been cleaned or changed out can cause your AC system to spread poor quality air through your home leading to allergies, respiratory problems, and general discomfort. Filters that are dirty enough can also affect the efficiency of your equipment, costing your money over time.
Faulty Thermostat – Your thermostat is a crucial component of your home’s cooling system. If it’s broken or malfunctioning, you may experience a number of frustrating problems with your AC’s performance. It may get too cool, not cool enough, or it may stop working altogether.Dirty or Blocked Condenser Unit – All kinds of things can obstruct your unit’s condenser unit. From dust and dirt, to tall grass, weeds, and debris. By blocking the condenser, your unit will have to work harder than it needs to, leading to poor performance, and possibly causing more costly damage over time.
