Prep Your AC for Summer: Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips

Updated: Jul 25, 2023

We understand the occasional bout of procrastination, and sometimes, it's okay to put things off around the house now and then. Scheduling air conditioning maintenance in Orange County, CA, however, falls outside that “now and then” category. If you want to be as comfortable as possible throughout the coming summer season, there are a number of things you need to start doing right away.

Hashtag Filter

Most homeowners don't bother changing their AC’s air filters throughout the year, as their units see little-to-no use outside of summer months, but switching out your old filter for a new one is crucial before you fire up your AC again.

It's also one of the simplest ways to keep up with your unit's maintenance. Experts recommend doing it far more often, especially if you have pets or live with people that are sensitive to allergens.

Spring Cleaning

Don't forget about your AC when you start your spring cleaning regimen! It's as easy as cleaning up any debris surrounding it and gently rinsing it with a hose. It's also a good idea to trim back any bushy foliage that could grow and thus interfere with the unit's performance.

An HVAC professional can give the inside of your unit a deeper clean when you call for maintenance, so focus more on getting the outside of your unit ready.

Check the AC's Health

After sitting idle for months, it's anyone's guess as to how your AC will function once you fire it back up, and you want to avoid having the first time you find out landing on a day with record-smashing temps.

With that in mind, book an appointment with a reputable HVAC professional in advance to get your annual air conditioning maintenance in Orange County, CA. Their visit will give you peace of mind knowing your system is in good shape, and it'll also give you a heads up if some issues need resolution.
