How to Prepare Your AC for Spring

Air Conditioner with Tool Bag & Reminder

Spring time will arrive in a couple of weeks and we can begin to start lowering our thermostat. The sun will finally shine and the flowers will start to bloom. While spring activities, like going to the beach, enjoying a picnic at a local park, or playing outdoor sports are always something to look forward to, the humidity isn’t. With that being said, it’s time to prepare our air conditioning unit for the spring and summer heat.

Time to Change the Filter

Air filters should be changed regularly. A dirty filter will not protect your home from dust particles and allergens from entering your home. A worn air filter can also cause lasting damage to your HVAC unit. The spring time is the best time to replace your air filter because of the constant use of your air conditioner. Replacing your air filter will not only provide maximum efficiency to your unit, but it will also improve your air quality significantly.

Clean your Air Ducts

If you haven’t done so yet, now would be a great time to schedule a professional air duct cleaning. Not only will the technician clean your air ducts, they will also check the overall condition of it. They will be able to tell you whether your air ducts need to be sealed or replaced. American Air Cares is currently running a duct cleaning special that includes having 10 ducts cleaned and sanitized for only $169.

Time for Maintenance

The best time to schedule a maintenance check is before the heat is at its highest. No homeowner wants to deal with an air conditioning unit that breaks down during the hottest season of the year. An HVAC professional will search for potential threats and correct it before it becomes a bigger issue. They will also search for any leaks or tears that may cause your unit to fail. Scheduling a check will prevent any sort of issues from occurring in the future.
