Preparing your AC unit for spring with Pacific Heating & Cooling is a wise move to ensure it runs smoothly when the warmer weather arrives. Here are some steps you can take:
Schedule a Maintenance Check: Contact Pacific Heating & Cooling to schedule a maintenance check. Our technicians can inspect your unit, clean the coils, check refrigerant levels, and ensure all components are in good working condition.
Change Air Filters: Replace the air filters in your AC unit to improve airflow and indoor air quality. Clean filters can also help your system run more efficiently.
Clean Around the Outdoor Unit: Remove any debris, leaves, or vegetation from around the outdoor unit to ensure proper airflow. Trim back any bushes or plants to allow at least two feet of clearance around the unit.
Check Thermostat Settings: Adjust your thermostat settings for spring temperatures. Consider programming a schedule to optimize energy efficiency when you’re away from home.
Inspect Ductwork: Inspect the ductwork for leaks or damage. Sealing any leaks can improve efficiency and reduce energy costs.
Test the System: Before the weather gets too warm, test your AC system to make sure it’s cooling properly. If you notice any issues, contact Pacific Heating & Cooling for repairs. By taking these steps to prepare your AC unit for spring, you can ensure it’s ready to keep you cool and comfortable as the temperature rises.
