The team here at Ambient Comfort is concerned primarily with keeping you cool and comfortable for as long as possible, at the most affordable price possible. That requires more than just calling us when you need repairs or you notice something strange about your system. It means being proactive and when you’re taking your AC out of hibernation for the year, there is a wide variety of things you can do to make the transition easier and more effective.
So, we’re going to list several things that you as a homeowner can do in preparation for a hot summer, and one of those things is scheduling air conditioning maintenance in Egg Harbor Township. By signing up for maintenance with a team that really cares, you’re setting your air conditioner up for success. Let’s make sure your air conditioner is ready for the summer!
What You Can Do
When we say things that you as a homeowner can do, we don’t mean grabbing a screwdriver and opening up the electrical panel on your air conditioner. What we do mean, is that there are some things that are a lot less intensive, that are meant for homeowners to work on themselves, like changing an air filter or cleaning the vents, so keep that in mind when preparing your system for summer.
Replace the Air Filter
The air filter is a component of your air conditioner that is supposed to be replaced by the owner of the system, so it’s perfect for you to change yourself. It’s a good idea to have the filter change explained by a trained technician when the system is installed, as it’s pretty easy and safe to do on your own. Changing the air filter in your air conditioner can increase efficiency and also improve air quality, as your AC system runs more effectively and isn’t being stifled. Give our team a call if you have any questions about changing your air filter.
Clean Around Your System
Your air conditioner has been through a lot this year. All the weather we’ve been sheltered from, the outdoor component of your air conditioner has been exposed to it, from snow to rain, and even windy conditions. So, it’s generally a good idea to clean up to 2 feet around your air conditioner, making sure you remove any sticks, pebbles, dirt, debris, or critters from your system so that it can run smoothly and isn’t struggling against the elements.
Maintenance might not be something you can perform, but scheduling an appointment is absolutely something you can do. To be blatantly honest, maintenance is the best thing you can have done for your air conditioner in the springtime, since a trained and licensed professional from our team can provide minor adjustments and repairs to ensure your AC is ready to go. Maintenance can give you the green light that your system is good to go for another season, and it can actually extend the lifespan of the unit far beyond what it would be without routine service.
