How to Prep Your Air Conditioner for Summer

Spring is finally here! After a long and cold winter, we are all happy to see the frigid temperatures make their way out of this area once again. This time of year, our heating and cooling company in Oakdale is busy helping people with their air conditioners. We have a few suggestions on what you can do to get your air conditioner ready for the upcoming hot months.

It’s important to remember to do these tasks before the weather starts to really warm up. You don’t want to turn on your air conditioner for the first time when it’s 90 degrees out, only to discover that it’s blowing out hot air or no air at all. You can call our heating and cooling company for help if this happens, but you definitely don’t want to be without your air conditioner if you can help it!

Change the Filters

One of the most important aspects of air conditioner maintenance is making sure the filters are clean. If they aren’t, take the time to replace them. This is an inexpensive chore that will not take you long, but it can help increase the life span of your air conditioner. If you are unsure of how to change the filters or what type of filter you should buy, call our heating and cooling company. We can come out and take care of this for you, and we can show you how to do it yourself and advise you on what kind of filter to buy.

Clean the Condenser

The air conditioner’s condenser is usually located outside. During the winter months, leaves and other debris can accumulate in it if it was not covered up in the fall. Take some time to clean out any leaves or debris that may have accumulated around the unit. If this unit isn’t cleaned regularly, the dirt could clog the coils and require a call to our heating and cooling company for repair or cleaning work.

Of course, if you are unsure of how to do any of this, or if you have any questions regarding your air conditioner, you can call our heating and cooling company and we will gladly assist you!
