Spring is right round the corner and what better time than now to prepare for your spring air conditioning repair service. If you happen to own an AC unit, have you ever thought about what precautionary measures you could take to avoid any surprising repair costs? Thankfully, this article will discuss the tips and tricks on how you can prepare your AC unit today before calling an expert.
Spring Air Conditioning Tips:
The first tip we advise before contacting a spring AC repair service is to conduct a pre-inspection. If you don’t keep your AC unit covered during the winter months, then it could be prone to sticks, leaves, and other forms of debris getting lodged in your unit when it’s not in use. Did you know that a stick lodged in your system can actually burn up the fan motor and could damage other components within the unit? Failure to notice and rectify this will inevitably lead to very expensive repairs later on down the line so it is recommended that you check your unit on a regular basis.
Check Air Filter
The next tip you should adhere to is to check the air filter of your unit before enquiring for a spring air conditioning repair service. A dirty air filter will drastically reduce the efficiency of your air conditioning unit as it will struggle to circulate cold air to your desired location. If you neglect your air filter, it will drive up your energy costs and will put a lot of stress on your equipment. Checking and even replacing the air filter is an incredibly cost-effective way of maintaining your AC unit so make sure to check this component first before contacting professional help.
Consider Turning Off Your Humidifier
As we enter the hotter periods of the year, we are likely to use our AC units more frequently. As such, AC units will be turned on for the reason of removing heat and moisture while cooling your home. However, if the humidifier adds too much moisture to the air, it can force the air conditioner to work harder to remove the humidity. This can cause major inefficiencies and can even lead to your unit breaking due to being overworked.
Test The Thermostat
The thermostat simply measures the indoor temperature of your home then sends a signal to the AC to adjust the temperature to the desired level. If the thermostat fails however, the system won’t be able to function for its intended purpose. Consequently, here at D-Mec, we recommend testing the thermostat to be sure it’s working properly to avoid this problem and any unwanted repair costs.
Schedule A Spring Air Conditioning Technician
If you don’t feel comfortable enough to check for these problems yourself or simply don’t have the technical knowledge on how to check for these issues then it is advised that you contact a professional ac engineer. A trained professional can certainly prolong the life of your AC unit and keep it running efficiently. Thankfully, our engineers here at D-Mec are fully qualified and trained AC engineers.
