While you may think it’s a little too early to start thinking about summer since we’re just now getting into spring, it’s really the perfect time to start planning for when the temperatures are once again scorching. Take the time now to schedule air conditioner maintenance and you’ll be assured that your AC unit will be up to the task when you need it the most. While you should call a professional with Global Efficient Energy for an in-depth maintenance check, there are some things you can do on your own that will help get your unit ready.
What You Can Do
There are several air conditioner maintenance checks you can perform that don’t require special tools or experience. Here are a few of them:
- Make sure your air filters are clean. A dirty filter will force your air conditioner to work too hard in order to cool your home. This will reduce the lifespan of the unit and also make your energy bills unnecessarily high.
- Check your ducts to make sure they aren’t leaking.
- Get a programmable thermostat. This will reduce wasted energy because you will be able to set your unit to a higher temperature while you’re gone during the day.
For more involved air conditioner maintenance steps, such as checking the wiring, making sure your system has enough refrigerant, and several others, you need to call an expert with Global Efficient Energy. We’ll be able to identify any minor issues and fix them before they turn into costly repairs. Call us at 1-888-826-7881 or contact us online to set up an appointment.
