Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer05/09/2016 With spring in progress and summer fast approaching, it’s time to prep all parts of our lives for the hotter weather, and that involves our homes. It may not be time to turn on your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be considering how you will stay comfortable this season in Stuart. The best way to guarantee that you will have a comfortable summer is by switching on your system now, before it gets too hot and you discover that you need air conditioner repairs. Here are a couple of tricks to ensure your system, and your house, is properly equipped for the heat: Try it out now! It really is helpful to give your system a test run as soon as you can. You don’t want your air conditioner to break down on the hottest day of the year and make your home uncomfortable. Instead, setting your thermostat to its cooling mode and permitting it to run, even for a few minutes, will be a perfect check that can save you a lot of future issues. Ensure that cool air is blowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a handful of things to check before calling the professionals at Nisair Air Conditioning: Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a common mistake and one that is made often, but if you haven’t switched your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be running. Simple problem, simple solution! Check the unit outside. Reassess to see if there are any barriers around your system, such as debris or dirt, that can clog your air flow and cool air production. Change your filters. Per usual, this step is crucial to enhancing the work of your air conditioning system. With clean and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will create an comfortable environment for air to flow through. Once you’ve tested things out – your system is set to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t getting any cool air, it’s time to call in the specialists if there are complications. Regular air conditioner service should be on your radar at this time every year anyway, so now is the ideal time to check up on every aspect of your system before the summer hits. The experts at Nisair Air Conditioning will not only fix the current problem at hand, but they will also deal with any small potential issues that could turn into bigger difficulties later.
