Summer is almost here! Barbecues, summer picnics, outdoor concerts, swimming, drinks on the patio–and a cool AC to relax in when the weather is sweltering.
It’s time to start getting your AC ready for the hottest months of the year so that you can be sure it’s working at its best all summer long.
Let’s dive in!
Book a Routine Inspection
Just like you, your AC needs a routine physical to ensure everything is in tip-top shape. If your AC is in need of any repairs or parts need to be replaced, you’ll find out during your AC’s yearly “checkup.”
Here are a few reasons that routine inspections are so important:
Getting your AC system inspected is more than making sure it’s keeping your home temperate–it’s making sure that it’s doing so safely.
Carbon monoxide poisoning, fire hazards, faulty wiring, or gas leaks are a major hazard to your home and family. Don’t risk it: schedule regular maintenance before the summer heat kicks in.
Save on Your Energy Bills and Repairs
You want your AC to work well, but not necessarily work hard. The harder your AC works, the more energy it uses to keep your home cool, and the higher your energy bills. Not to mention, the harder your AC is pushed, the more wear you put on your unit, meaning more frequent repair bills.
Scheduling an inspection can make sure that your unit is running smoothly and efficiently, keeping the temperature–and your energy bills–low.
Make Your Home Your Summer Oasis
While summer is a great time to get together with friends and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, there are some summer days where you’d rather lounge at home than by the pool.
Regular maintenance and inspections can ensure that you’re not stuck at home relying on box fans and an icepack on the days where you’re working from home or simply want to stay in.
Book a Routine Inspection
AC inspection isn’t a task you want to DIY. Your air conditioning unit (and most of its components) require a trained, skilled professional to maintain.

Maintaining Your AC Between Inspections and Maintenance
As a homeowner, it’s important to know how to identify problems with your AC unit and how to perform basic maintenance between regularly scheduled inspections and routine service calls.
Clear the Area of Debris
Before summer comes, clear away the accumulation of debris from the winter and spring seasons. Leaves, twigs, and dirt can easily find their way into your outdoor unit, causing blockages and overheating problems.
And remember, cleaning goes beyond just the unit itself:
Clean or Replace Your AC Filters
A dirty filter can cause your air conditioning system to work harder than necessary, leading to reduced efficiency and higher energy bills. Prevent this by regularly cleaning or replacing your filters! Not only will this keep your air conditioner working efficiently, it helps keep your indoor air cleaner during the spring and summer months when allergies are more prevalent.
Pay Attention to Your Condenser Coils
Dirty condenser coils can cause blockages and overheating, leading to significant problems with your HVAC system. Cleaning your condenser coils regularly can help keep your system running smoothly and prevent any issues from occurring.
By keeping your AC unit clean and clear of debris and keeping your filters and condenser coils clean, you can maintain your HVAC system’s efficiency and extend its lifespan. If you’re unsure how to clean your filters or condenser coils, it’s best to reach out to a professional for assistance.
