Summer is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start thinking about turning on your central air conditioning unit. However, there are a few things you should do before doing so. In this blog post from Davis Heating & Cooling, we will discuss some of the most important things you need to do before firing up your A/C this summer. Read on to learn more!
Check Your Air Filter
Before you turn on your air conditioning unit this summer, make sure you check your filter. A dirty air filter can cause a number of problems, including reducing the efficiency of your unit and causing it to work harder than it needs to. A dirty filter can also affect your indoor air quality and exacerbate allergies and asthma symptoms.
Open Your Vents
Another thing to keep in mind is that you should open up all of the vents in your home before turning on your A/C. This will ensure the cool air can circulate throughout your home evenly, and will maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your A/C unit.
Ensure Your Thermostat Is Working Properly
Before you need your A/C unit in order to be comfortable, you should test the thermostat to ensure it’s working properly. Make sure the batteries are working and try switching on the air conditioning to ensure it begins pumping cold air throughout your home.
Have Your Unit Professionally Serviced
One of the most important things you need to do before turning on your A/C is to make sure that your unit is properly serviced. This means having a professional come out and inspect your unit, clean it, and make any necessary repairs. This will make sure that your air conditioning unit will be there when you need it this summer.
