Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

With spring underway and summer imminent, it’s time to prepare all aspects of our lives for the warmer weather, and that also means our homes. It may not be time to use your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be considering how you will stay comfy this season in Greensburg. The best way to ensure that you will have a cool summer is by flipping on your system now, before it gets too hot and you realize that you need air conditioner service. Here are a couple of tips to ensure your system, and your house, is prepared for the heat:

Try it out now!

It really is helpful to give your system a trial run sooner rather than later. You don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the hottest day of the year and make your home unpleasant. Instead, positioning your thermostat to its cooling mode and allowing it to run, even for a few minutes, will be an excellent trial run that can save you a lot of future problems. Confirm that cool air is moving into your home, and if it’s not, here are a handful of things to check before calling the experts at Wallpe Heating & Cooling:

  • Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a common mistake and one that is made often, but if you haven’t switched your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be blowing. Simple problem, uncomplicated solution!
  • Check the unit outside. Reassess to see if there are any blockages around your system, such as plants or dirt, that can clog your air flow and cool air production.
  • Change your filters. As always, this step is crucial to enhancing the functionality of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will establish an simpler environment for air to flow through.

Once you’ve tried things out – your system is adjusted to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t getting any cool air, it’s time to call in the professionals if there are issues. Regular air conditioner service should be on your radar this time of the year nonetheless, so now is the perfect time to look at every piece of your system before the summer hits. The professionals at Wallpe Heating & Cooling will not only fix the current difficulty at hand, but they will also address any small potential issues that could turn into bigger difficulties later.

Chances are that if your home isn’t cooling easily, your system might be missing refrigerant based on low levels or possibly a leak. If you noticed that ice was accumulating when you examined your outdoor unit, that may be an signal that you need more refrigerant. During an air conditioner maintenance check, our professionals can deal with any leaks in your lines or refrigerant shortages.

Everyone depends on their air conditioner to survive the summer and it can be easy to ignore how crucial your system is to your summer comfort. Don’t fret about your air conditioner failing and instead, be preemptive about assessing and servicing your system before the heat wave strikes. If you have any questions about your system or want to set up that routine air conditioner service, call our professionals at 812-638-4232 or schedule an appointment with us online.
