    Preparing Air Conditioners For Summer

    Summer AC

    The Air Filter

    An air filter usually needs changing once a month. Otherwise, a dirty filter will block airflow in your duct system. This forces your air conditioner to work longer.

    Cleaning The Condenser Unit

    Look at your air conditioner’s outside unit (also called the condenser unit) with the big fan. It’s job is to release heat that the refrigerant has absorbed from your indoor air. But if the outside unit’s coils are covered in dirt, it has trouble dispersing heat from the refrigerant. If it can’t disperse heat easily, then your central air conditioner takes longer to cool your home because the refrigerant now can’t efficiently absorb more heat from your air. And, as you know, an air conditioner that runs longer than it needs to means higher energy bills.

    Trimming Around The Air Conditioner

    Give your air conditioner some breathing room! If you have branches or shrubbery covering the outside unit, the same thing happens like if it’s covered in dirt. So, get your clippers ready and make sure your air conditioner has at least 12 inches of space above and around it.

    My brother and I want to make sure that all of our appliances at his beach house function properly before we spend a vacation there. It helped a lot when you stated that air filters need monthly cleanings to prevent the AC from working longer unnecessarily because we haven’t visited the beach house in a long while, so some parts may be left outdated or unkempt. I’ll be sure to look for a contractor who can help us get all our units to usable condition before we settle in. Thank you!
