Here in Florida, our summers start early. And despite those last-minute cold fronts, it looks like the warmer weather is finally here to stay. Which means it’s time to turn your air conditioner back on - if you haven’t already, of course.
But before you ask your AC to start working a full summertime schedule again, make sure it’s ready and able to do so. Running a dirty AC system is asking for trouble, as the dirt, dust and who-knows-what-else can do significant damage to your system over time. Your HVAC system needs care and maintenance, just like any other piece of machinery. Regular cleaning and lubricating is part of that, and spring is the perfect time to do it.
Not only that, but a clean air conditioning system is an efficient air conditioning system. Keeping your AC clean will help you keep your energy bills low, especially in the summer.
Now, before you dive right in with a dustrag and a spray-bottle of all-purpose cleaner, you should know that it takes a professional to clean air conditioners properly. They are pretty complex machines, and it takes a lot of training to really know what’s going on in there.
When your HVAC professional arrives to clean your air conditioning system, make sure they’re clear about what they plan to clean. Specifically, you’ll want them to inspect, clean and adjust the following components:
- Fan motor, blades and housing
- Electrical wiring and connections
- Air ducts
- Switches and controls
- Safety devices
If any of these items aren’t on their checklist, ask them why. And if they won’t tell you what they’re planning to do, call someone else immediately. Or you could just call Easy AC at the start. Our techs are skilled and honest professionals, and they’ll make sure your air conditioner is up to the challenge of keeping your home cool all the way through another hot Florida summer.
