Prepare Your Air Conditioning System for Summer

Summer is expected to bring some extremely hot weather to the Myrtle Beach area, as always. This means your home’s air conditioning system must be in tip-top condition. Here are some important maintenance tips for your air conditioning unit.

Prepare Your Air Conditioning System for the Summer Heat

Now is the time to prepare your air conditioning system for the hot summer weather just ahead.

Clean the Air Conditioner Coils

Dirty coils can definitely cause your unit to consume more energy. Furthermore, your home will have trouble maintaining the ideal temperature. Experts recommend having the coils cleaned at least once a year on your air conditioning system.

Change the Air Filter

Your air conditioning system does more than just cool your home. It also helps remove pollen and dust from the air. This is especially important for allergy and asthma sufferers. Try to change the air filter on a monthly basis. By replacing dirty air filters, you help to avoid a sky-high energy bill.

Keep the Surrounding Area Clear

The area around your HVAC unit needs to be kept clear at all times. If there are any nearby trees or bushes, don’t allow them to overtake the unit. Obstruction like these might even cause big time damage if they go unnoticed for a long time.

Seal Your Home

A faulty air conditioning system is not always the cause of a high electrical bill. If your home is not properly insulated, the cooling system must work a lot harder than normal. Take the time to inspect your home for leaks. Doors and windows are usually the main culprits. However, cracks in the duct system can also ruin your home’s efficiency.
