While you’re vacuuming under the rugs and throwing out the junk you accumulated over the winter, take some time to check over your air conditioner. There are a few key things you should look for:
Make sure your compressor is clear – there’s no telling what kind of debris and other stuff can collect around your air conditioner compressor over the winter. It might not seem like a big deal, but all that junk can block airflow into your compressor and prevent the coil from radiating heat away, eventually causing it to overheat!
Check your air filters – you should have been changing your air filters all winter while running the furnace, but if it’s been more than a month or so now is a good time to check them and make sure they’re clear. Remember that proper air flow is one of the most important factors in determining your air conditioner’s cooling efficiency and effectiveness, so clogged air filters will increase your costs and could potentially cause your unit to burn out prematurely.
Check your thermostat – this may seem like a no brainer, but it’s still a good idea to check your thermostat to make sure it’s set to COOL mode. You’d be surprised at how many people call us every summer thinking they have a broken air conditioner when really they forgot to make the switch!
