How to Get Your AC Ready for Summer
As the temperature rises, it’s time to start thinking about getting your air conditioner ready for summer. After months of not being used, your air conditioning unit may need a little maintenance to ensure it’s running efficiently and effectively.
Here are some things Gateway Home Services can do to prepare your system for summer:
- Clean or replace the air filters – The air filters are an essential part of your air conditioner, as they help keep the air in your home clean and fresh. Over time, the filters can become clogged with dust and dirt, reducing the efficiency of your air conditioner. To ensure that your air conditioner is working at its best, we will clean or replace your air filters before the start of the summer season.
- Check the outdoor unit – The outdoor unit of your air conditioner is exposed to the elements all year round, which can cause it to become dirty and clogged with debris. We will check the outdoor unit for any signs of damage or wear and tear, such as cracks or rust. We will also remove any leaves, dirt, or other debris around the unit to ensure it can function correctly.
- Air duct cleaning – Over time, your air ducts can become clogged with dust, dirt, and other debris, reducing the airflow and decreasing the efficiency of your AC system. We can help clean your air ducts, removing buildup and ensuring your system runs efficiently.
- Clean the condenser coils – The condenser coils transfer heat from your home and into the outdoor air. Over time, the coils can become dirty and clogged with debris, reducing the efficiency of your air conditioner. To clean the condenser coils, we will temporarily turn off the power to your air conditioner and gently use a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris.
- Check the refrigerant levels – The refrigerant is the substance that cools the air in your air conditioner. If the refrigerant levels are low, your air conditioner will not be able to function effectively. We will check the refrigerant levels in your air conditioner and top off if necessary.
If we notice any serious problems that need to be checked by a professional HVAC company, we will inform you about them.
