Prep Your AC for Summer Cooling

On the first hot day in Harrisburg, North Carolina, just about every air conditioner in the city will start working overtime to maintain a cool, comfortable indoor temperature. Before that day comes, it’s important to prep your AC for your upcoming cooling needs. Make sure to tackle these tasks so that your air conditioner can keep you cool all summer long.

DIY Tasks

Although you shouldn’t start poking around in your air conditioning unit, there are a few simple tasks that you can handle on your own to prepare the cooling system. Start by taking a closer look at the outdoor unit. During the fall and winter months, branches and shrubs may have grown a bit too close to the unit’s housing, causing the vents to become blocked or clogged. The outdoor unit contains the condenser, which is one of the most important components of the system. It needs plenty of airflow to work efficiently, so trim back any trees and clear out debris from the unit.

You can also do some light cleaning of the vents and exchanges in your home. Use a vacuum with a soft bristle attachment to clear any visible dirt, dust, or debris.

Schedule a Tuneup

It’s also important to schedule your routine maintenance service before summer hits. During this service, your HVAC technician will take a closer look at each component of the system. If they spot anything that is damaged or not functioning properly, they can fix the issue right away instead of continuing to allow the system to run, which can cause further damage. By keeping up with regular maintenance, you can extend the life of your cooling system while taking advantage of lower bills.

We offer tuneups, routine maintenance services, plus repairs and installations at Dulin Mechanical, so contact us today at (704) 237-3641 to schedule an appointment.
