End Of Summer AC Tips
As the summer begins rolling to an end, and the nights are getting longer and cooler, many of us are very thankful for the hard work our air conditioners have done to keep us comfortable during the hottest days this year. As we begin to use our AC less and less, it’s important to do some end-of-season maintenance to make sure that it’s going to work just as well next year! Here are our best end-of-summer AC tips to make sure your air conditioner is in great condition for next June.
Replace Your Air Filter
Whether you have central air conditioning or ductless air conditioning, one of our universal end-of-summer AC tips is to replace or clean your air filter once more before the end of the year. If you have central air, check your furnace filter and see if it needs to be replaced (a furnace filter should be checked every 30 days, and replaced every 60 days or sooner as needed). If you have a ductless system, simply remove the filter from the indoor unit, vacuum it or dust it with a cloth, and put it back in!
Clean The Area Around Your AC
Before the end of the season, take time to clean the area around the outdoor unit of your air conditioner. If you have an outdoor AC unit in your backyard, take the time to clean ensure the grass surrounding the unit is mowed and there are no sticks, leaves, or other natural debris in the way. By tidying the area around your air conditioner to the best of your ability, you’re ensuring the best care for your unit while it’s not in use! Any overgrown plants should be trimmed back 24 inches from your air conditioner. Give the system a final wipe down and place your cover on it once the seasons change.
Schedule End-Of-Season Maintenance
If you’re interested in prolonging the lifespan of your air conditioner and ensuring it remains working well for next year, scheduling annual maintenance is one of the best end-of-summer AC tips we can give you!
