How Early Should You Start Prepping Your Air Conditioner?

How Early Should You Start Prepping Your Air Conditioner?

Although it’s not time to turn on our air conditioners just yet, warm weather will be here before we know it. For homeowners, it’s important to take the time to prep your air conditioning system before the summer weather hits.

We recommend scheduling your cooling tune-ups now, while the spring weather is still relatively cool. With a tune-up, you’ll also improve the efficiency of your air conditioner — meaning that when you do turn it on, you’ll spend less money keeping your family cool and comfortable.

What is included in a precision cooling tune-up procedure?

Our cooling tune-ups include cleaning the outdoor condenser, checking and cleaning the condensate tubing and condensate drain, testing the compressor-start rotor amps, condenser fan motor and blade, capacitor, safety controls, refrigerant, and humidity levels. We also visually inspect the evaporator coil and line-set to make sure that everything is in place. For a complete list of what is included in a cooling tune-up, visit our website.

Taking the time to prep your system gives you the opportunity to identify and address potential problems with your unit. In the unfortunate event you do run into a problem with your air conditioning system, our technicians are here to help. At Wahl Family Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, our technicians are fully licensed and insured — so you know that you can trust us to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
