How to Prepare Your AC Before Summer Arrives
Summer in Phoenix is a great time to build family memories with the kids out of school, swim parties, barbeques, board games and movie time. To feel confident that your plans won’t be spoiled by miserable weather, be sure to prep your AC system to keep your family and friends cool the entire summer. Here are some tips from your friends at Hobaica that you can do yourself to get your AC ready.
Change Your Air Filter
Choosing the right air filter for your family’s needs and replacing it regularly are by far the most important steps you can take to keep your AC running at peak performance. For some expert advice, be sure to check out our video on how to choose the best air filter for your home!
Clean Up Dust Inside Your AC System
Vacuum inside your AC unit to remove any dirt, dust and debris that has accumulated. Also, be sure to vacuum out the area where you air filter is located, as well as any vents and ducting within reach. If you see excessive dust build-up in your ductwork, just give us a call and we’ll get all of your ducts professionally cleaned and throw in a dryer vent cleaning for FREE!
Clean Your AC Outside
Trim any grass, shrubs or trees away from your AC unit and clean up any leaves or debris that have accumulated around it, so the air flow through the outdoor coil is not obstructed. Wash your outdoor unit with your garden hose, being careful not to get the motor, wiring or any electrical controls wet. Be certain to turn the breaker off first to prevent any dangerous electrical issues while cleaning.
