How To Prep Your AC For Summer

Construction & Contractors Blog

Prepping your air conditioning system for summer is vital if you want to maximize efficiency, maintain low utility bills, and increase the lifespan of your expensive air conditioning appliances. While many homeowners are smart enough to have their system serviced between each season, others will go years without any sort of basic HVAC maintenance. Obviously, there are a few things you can do yourself to keep your system current, but you have to rely on professional help if you really want your complicated, technical appliances to work to their maximum efficiency. This article explains what a professional HVAC servicing system will do to prepare your system for the summer.

Covering Your Condenser

The severity of the job does partly depend on how cold it gets in the winter where you live. If you had to cover up your condenser or drain your refrigerant lines during the winter, then a little more prep work will need to be done to get everything up and running. However, if you live in a mild climate, you really don't have to do much at all. First of all, no matter where you live, it is helpful if you cover your condenser unit. Rain, exposure to the sun, and debris from rain can all be detrimental to the health of your condenser, so covering it will protect the vital systems.

Refrigerant and Gas Line Maintenance

You should also have your refrigerant lines checked and refilled if necessary. Professionals will also check the gas lines, and make sure that there are no leaks. Professional HVAC service can usually come get your system up and running for the summer in a matter of an hour.

Of course, if they do have to make some major repairs or replace these expensive parts, it will take longer and be more expensive. But, having these regular professional services is very smart when it comes to preventing serious problems. That is, if one part of your HVAC system starts to malfunction or is not working to its full capacity, you could reduce the effect on the productivity another part of the system.

HVAC systems are very interconnected. The heating and cooling use many of the same appliances, so you have to keep everything in tiptop shape you're around. For instance, the air handler is largely responsible for creating airflow for both the heat and air conditioning. So, it is one unit that might need to be cleaned to maintain more often than other units. Contact a company, like Norris Mechanical, for more help.
