Prepare Your Air Conditioner for Summer

Now that the heat of summer is heading our way once again, it is time to take the steps necessary to protect your comfort. Contact the Evanston, IL air conditioning professionals at Shavitz today to get started. After a season of inactivity, you cannot just expect your air conditioning system to jump right back into the swing of things. If you want to get the most efficient, reliable air conditioning performance possible from your system, you need to ensure that your AC is fully prepared for the challenge that lies ahead. Here are some tips to help you accomplish that goal.

First of all, perform a quick visual inspection of your air conditioning unit outside. This unit must be able to vent itself in order to operate properly. Over the course of the offseason it is possible that leaves, branches and other debris may have fallen onto or around this component of your air conditioning system. If they are left there, airflow will be restricted and the operation of your air conditioning system will be compromised. Do not force your air conditioner to work harder than it should have during operation. Give it the breathing room it needs.

Also, take a quick walk around your home and make sure that your air registers within are unobstructed. If your air conditioner is trying to pull air into the system or force it out through an armchair or sofa, you cannot really expect that system to operate as reliably as possible. Things shift around in your home. Make sure that they have not done so in a way that can impede the operation of your AC.

Finally, contact your air conditioning technician to schedule routine air conditioning maintenance service. There is simply no better way for you to keep your air conditioner working properly. Only when your entire system is working in harmony can you expect to get the most outstanding performance possible.
