Temperatures are about to be on the rise in the Haverhill area and many residents are getting ready to turn their air conditioners back on. But is your system ready to be used after months of hibernation? Ensuring that your air conditioner is serviced now, before spring hits, will ease your mind when the heat wave hits that your system is ready to perform efficiently and properly. Here are a few simple steps you can take to make sure that your air conditioner is ready:
- If you used foam pipe covers around your exposed exterior pipes over the colder season, make sure to remove those. While they probably made a huge difference during the freezing cold temperatures, removing them will ensure that your cool air can circulate better throughout your home.
- Clear the area around your external air conditioner to ensure that there aren’t any leaves or debris that can hinder the performance of your system. This is important to keep in mind throughout the year, and not just before spring, so be sure to keep about two to three feet of space around your air conditioner clear.
- Make sure you have your regularly scheduled air conditioner service on the calendar, even if it’s still a bit chilly outside. This check-up can help you take care of safety checks, including equipment cleaning, changing your air filter and inspecting electrical connections.
No matter the season, keeping your air conditioner running smoothly and efficiently is vital to your comfort. Don’t start spring without ensuring that your air conditioner is ready for the change of seasons and prepped to start up strong again.
