How to Get Your AC Ready for Spring

Are you a Floridian who is eager for the spring rains? The hot summer sun in Florida is only a few months away, and now is the time to get your AC ready for spring.

6 Tips for Getting Your AC Ready For Spring

Follow these tips for getting your AC system ready for Florida’s wet spring weather, and you’ll be thanking yourself for all your effort. Let’s go:

Tip #1. Change Your Air Filters

It is our duty to remind all who enjoy air-conditioned comfort to be sure to change the air filter in their HVAC system. This ensures that only the highest quality of air will filter through your home.

Air filters collect dust and debris circulating via your AC system, and when those filters get clogged, your air gets contaminated.

Minimize the risk of inhaling dust and debris by changing your air filters regularly.

Tip #2. Clean Debris

Your exterior condenser is a prime magnet for renegade twigs and foliage, so make sure you are regularly cleaning around the condenser unit. In addition, you can help to maintain the health of your AC unit by cleaning the condenser coils. Make sure you follow the proper instructions for cleaning your condenser, according to the instruction booklet included with your purchase.

Tip #3. Turn On Your System

In Florida, you may run your air conditioning system nearly year round. But the best way to determine if your AC unit is working properly is to turn it on. Try not to turn your AC on and off quickly. You need to give your system time to switch between cooling and heating. Instead, wait until you really don’t need heat anymore to crank up the AC and to test whether it is cooling your house comfortably. As you practice doing this, you will get better at knowing how your AC unit is accustomed to working.

Tip #4. Upgrade If System is Over 10 Years Old

If your AC system has seen its share of hot summer seasons then it may be headed for retirement. Replace your AC system if the repairs have become unmanageable, it is over the age of ten or you’re worried that you may be left sweating through the playoffs.

Tip #5. Schedule a Maintenance Check-Up

During our 26-point precision tune-up we will: check and update coolant levels, replace or clean dirty air filters, clean, balance and calibrate the thermostats, inspect and clean condenser and evaporator coils, inspect wiring and connections, check that the unit cycles on and off properly, clean out the compressor housing, check and clean drains and tubing, lubricate all moving parts, and check the area around the unit.
