How To Prepare Your Air Conditioner for the Summer

How To Prepare Your Air Conditioner for the Summer

Our air conditioners are critical, especially during the summer, because they keep our homes cool and comfortable. With summer around the corner, we must prepare our air conditioners or else we risk the chance of experiencing a unit that fails. Below is a step-by-step overview of how to best prepare your air conditioner for the summer.

Replace or Clean The Filter
A filter is a crucial component of an air conditioner since it assists in trapping all the airborne dust particles, dirt, and other debris. Therefore it is vital to clean your air filter prior the the start of the season to ensure continued efficiency. Running an air conditioner with a clogged air filter will restrict airflow forcing the unit to overwork itself, which leads to a spike in your energy bill and may result in system failure.

Clean The Condenser Coils 
It is common for the condenser in your air conditioner to collect leaves, build-up, and other grime. This detritus limits the performance of your air conditioner by inhibiting heat transfer and airflow. The debris must be cleaned out to prevent the air conditioner from failing. However, since this process is delicate, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a certified technician from Maple Air Heating and Cooling, serving the Greater Toronto Area. 

Check The Coolant Lines
To ensure that your air conditioner works efficiently during the summer season, you must check on the coolant lines. These copper lines run from the condenser to the evaporator inside the house. All coolant lines must be fully insulated to prevent energy loss. Seek air conditioner maintenance services in the Greater Toronto Area from Maple Air Heating and Cooling if you suspect faulty coolant lines.

Arrange For Full Maintenance Service
If it has been a while since your air conditioner received maintenance, be alert that your air conditioner could possibly develop complications which could limit performance during the summer season. To prevent this, seek services for air conditioner maintenance in the Greater Toronto Area. At Maple Air Heating and Cooling, our certified technicians can provide necessary maintenance for your air conditioner to assure a proper functioning unit all season long. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and enjoy your summer without compromising your comfort.
