Getting your air conditioning system ready for the summer will involve some maintenance tasks, as well as scheduling your annual air conditioner tune-up service. Call the Salt Lake City air conditioning specialists at Rentmeister Total Home Service for all of your air conditioning maintenance or repair service needs or if you have questions about how to maintain your system.
Keep in mind that routine tune-ups and other maintenance tasks help to prevent repairs or equipment failure, as well as maintain efficiency. If you want to ensure that your air conditioner is ready for the summer, be sure that you schedule your annual maintenance visit before the cooling season begins.
Here are some further tips to get your air conditioning system ready.
Change Air Filters
Changing air filters regularly helps to ensure that nothing is blocking the airflow. When dirt or other particles get trapped in the filter, it affects the airflow, as well as indoor air quality. These are both good reasons to change air filters often. If you have pets or anyone in your home with allergies or other sensitivities, you may want to change filters more. We recommend changing them at least once a month, or as recommended by the manufacturer. Always make sure there’s a new filter in place before you turn on your air conditioning system in the spring for the first time since last season.
Clean Your AC System in the Spring
One way to help prevent problems is to clean your air conditioning system in the spring. Dirty air ducts, dusty coils, and dirt blocking airflow can put excess strain on the compressor. We offer a basic cleaning during the annual tune-up, but your system will be easier to maintain if you keep it clean throughout the summer and before you turn it on in the spring. This includes the outdoor compressor if you have a heat pump. Make sure you know how to properly clean it, or call our air conditioning maintenance technicians if you aren’t sure.
Lastly, always call the Salt Lake City air conditioning specialists at Rentmeister Total Home Service for maintenance and tune-ups services. Be sure to call us before summer gets too hot!
