Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer04/13/2017Summer has arrived! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some peaceful summer days. To enahance your comfort and truly relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for the heat. One of the keys to a fun summer in Vancouver is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning in the heat. First, another opportunity to cite the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter routinely! Replace it in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation. Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold weather. Starting your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls. Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s operations. mow the grass, get rid any debris and remove overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner. To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you want it and not escaping through gaps. Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit sits on. These easy steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
