5 Easy Ways to Get Your AC Ready for the Heat

Heat-PumpSummer is coming fast down the pipeline. Are you certain that your home is ready for the heat?

Summers in Kelso can get quite hot. If you want to make sure that you’re getting quality air conditioning service that’s going to keep you cool all summer long, then it’s best to prepare your system now. We know all the intricacies that go into your air conditioning in Kelso, WA. We’re prepared to get you exactly what you need when you need it. Let’s talk about a few easy ways to get your air conditioner ready this season.

AC Preparation Tips

Here are a few air conditioning preparation tips that you should know for this upcoming season:

1.      Schedule an Appointment for Maintenance

You should always schedule an appointment for maintenance every spring. This is the perfect time of year for you to get the services that you need. This is because while spring is a little warm, it’s still ahead of the curve when it comes to the height of the heating system. This gives your air conditioning technician time to spot potential issues and fix them.

2.      Upgrade Your Thermostat

If you’ve had the same thermostat that you have now for years, then you’re going to need to upgrade now. Your thermostat should be upgraded at least once every 10 years just like your AC system. However, when our technicians go out to homes for service jobs, they noticed many dated thermostats on the walls. Smart and W-Fi thermostats are the necessary next step. They’ll help you stay cooler this summer.

3.      Know When You Need More

Sometimes, you’re just going to need to do a little more than maintenance. Sometimes, the problem that you’re experiencing needs air conditioning repair.

You know that you can dray a definitive line between a maintenance need and a repair need depending on the severity and duration of the problem. If you’ve had this problem all spring and it only seems to be growing stronger, then you need repair. Another telltale sign is rising energy bills. Make sure you take note of these problems and address them as soon as possible.

4.      Clean Up Your System

It’s important to make sure that your system is clean inside and out. Before the cooling system reaches its full stride, make sure that you head out to your outdoor unit. Clear out any sticks, leaves, or other debris that has built up on your outdoor unit.

5.      Clear Up Your Home

After you clean things up in your home, it’s time to clear your space out. You might have moved some furniture around in your home during the off season. We’re never opposed to you switching up the feel of your home, but you need to be mindful of how you’re commanding your space.

If you put anything in front of your vents, you’re going to need to move it now. We’re moving into a high priority season, and you need to make sure ready to receive the best AC service possible.
