Getting Your A/C Unit Ready for Summer

Reading Time: 2 minutes


As we all know, the sweltering South Florida summer can be a nightmare. So make sure that you are getting your A/C ready for summer with Art Plumbing and Air Conditioning servicing all your Coral Springs air conditioning needs.

There are a few things that you can do yourself prior to calling a maintenance tech which will help make the whole process go a lot quicker. The most important thing is to make sure that no debris has gathered around your outdoor A/C unit over the winter months. Things like leaves and branches can obstruct airflow and damage the unit. Also, cut away any future possible obstructions such as over-grown trees and shrubs. A 2-foot clear area around the unit should be good enough.

Next you can clean the condenser and replace the filters. Remember that your air conditioning unit is a complicated piece of machinery and you should be careful to not damage any of its components. New filters will help revitalize the air quality that comes out of your unit. Your filters also help prevent your cooling system from icing up and your A/C from shutting down by allowing air to flow through freely. The same goes for your compressor – if there is any dirt or debris clogging it up, it will prevent it from working properly and could end up shutting down completely. No compressor equals no cool air – definitely something you do not want to experience this summer.

While there are few things that you can do yourself to make sure that your A/C is in good working condition for the summer, it is always advisable that you have a good Coral Springs air conditioning company do regular maintenance on your unit. Remember that prevention is always better (and cheaper) than cure. So don’t let your A/C fall into disrepair or get damaged because of an oversight on your behalf, have a specialist give it the once over so that your summer comfort will not be disrupted. During regular maintenance your entire system will be thoroughly inspected by a professional. Every component will be tested and tuned if need be.

So to ensure that you have the comfort of a cool home all summer long follow these few tips and make sure that your A/C is checked and maintained by a professional Coral Springs air conditioning company such as Art Plumbing and Air Conditioning.
