Tips to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, it’s time to set up all aspects of our lives for the toastier weather, and that involves our homes. It may not be time to use your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be contemplating how you will stay cool this season in West Palm Beach. The greatest way to make sure that you will have a cool summer is by flipping on your system now, before it gets too hot and you discover that you need air conditioner maintenance. Here are a few tricks to guarantee that your system, and your house, is prepared for the heat:

Try it out now!

It really is important to give your system a test run as soon as you can. You don’t want your air conditioner to shutdown on the warmest day of the year and make your home uncomfortable. So, setting your thermostat to its cooling mode and allowing it to run, even for a few minutes, will be a great trial run that can save you a lot of future issues. Ensure that cool air is flowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a handful of things to inspect before calling the professionals at Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc:

  • Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a simple mistake and one that is made regularly, but if you haven’t switched your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be flowing. Simple setback, easy solution!
  • Check the unit outside. Double check to see if there are any obstructions around your system, such as plants or dirt, that can jam your air flow and cool air production.
  • Change your filters. Per usual, this step is vital to enhancing the work of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will establish an simpler environment for air to flow through.

Once you’ve tested things out – your system is programmed 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 professionals if there are problems. Regular air conditioner service should be on your radar right now anyhow, so now is the perfect time to inspect every aspect of your system before the new season hits. The professionals at Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc will not only solve the current issue at hand, but they will also tackle any small potential issues that could turn into bigger problems later.

If you noticed that ice was accumulating when you examined your outdoor unit, that may be an signal that you need more refrigerant. During an air conditioner maintenance check, our experts can take care of any leaks in your lines or refrigerant shortages.

Everyone trusts their air conditioner to endure over the summer and it can be easy to ignore how crucial your system is to your summer ease. Don’t fret about your air conditioner shutting down and instead, be proactive about testing and servicing your system before the heat wave arrives.
