What can homeowners do to make sure their AC system is ready?

As a homeowner, the best thing you can do to ensure your air conditioning system is ready for warmer temperatures is to call your HVAC contractor to set up your maintenance service appointment. In preparation for their visit, you should make sure that any debris that may have collected around your outdoor unit is removed, and any vegetation growing around your unit is trimmed away. That will make it easier for your technician to get the job done.

Additionally, you will want to make sure the filter used by your heating and central air conditioning system is clean. It’s a good idea to change this filter regularly, as it helps maintain system efficiency and keeps the dust and dirt particles from collecting in your system.

How can air conditioning maintenance benefit my system?

Some of the main benefits of getting annual maintenance for your AC system include:

  • Promotes Consistent Cooling: Regular maintenance keeps your AC running smoothly, so your home stays evenly cool.
  • Helps Save Energy: Regular maintenance keeps your AC in top shape to maintain its efficiency and reduce energy bills.
  • Helps Avoid Big Repairs: Routine checks can spot and fix small issues before they become big, costly problems.
  • Allows for Cleaner Air: Clean AC systems mean less dust and dirt in your air, making it healthier to breathe.
  • Maintains Your Warranty: Regular service by a professional is often needed to keep your AC’s warranty valid.
