Can you believe that summer is just around the corner? While the warm days of summer still seem to be in the distant future, the weather will begin to warm in a little more than a month. You’ll be turning your air conditioner on shortly after that, and you want to make sure that you don’t encounter any problems.

Change Your AC Filters
No matter what time of the year it is, changing your HVAC system’s air filters is one of the easiest ways to optimize performance and keep your home’s air clean. Filters generally need to be cleaned every three to four months, depending on how frequently you use your HVAC system.
You’ll probably be turning off your furnace in April or May, and when you do, take the opportunity to change the filter. You won’t be turning on the heat again until late September or early October, and you don’t want to forget before the start of next season. If you didn’t change your air conditioner’s furnace when you turned it off last year, then take this opportunity to do so now! When the first warm day arrives, your home will be ready to provide you with clean and comfortable air.
In addition to preventing dust, dirt, and other contaminants from filling your air, clean filters and an annual air conditioner maintenance make it easier for your HVAC system to maintain a stable temperature, which in turn reduces the amount of energy it uses.
Clean Your Bathroom Fans
You frequently clean and detail the fixtures and counters in your bathroom, but have you ever taken the time to clean the fans? A quick glance upward will often reveal a fair amount of dust and discoloration, and the buildup might be preventing your fans from working as efficiently as they could. Moreover, they may be contributing to poor air quality in your home.
Carefully remove the covers and clean them with a mixture of gentle soap and warm water. Use a soft cloth to gently clean the fan blades and the surrounding area, making sure to clean up any dust that falls to the floor.
While many homeowners believe that an AC installation is the only way to improve their home’s efficiency, installing a new thermostat is an extremely cost-effective way to efficiently use your energy. If you have a manual thermostat, then you probably turn it on the afternoon or in the evenings, depending on when you and the other members of your household are home. You probably forget to turn it off from time to time, and you might even inadvertently turn it on before it’s actually needed.
No matter what your situation is, it’s likely that a smart thermostat can help you optimize your energy use. You can program the thermostat to only come on at certain times of the day, and you can also remotely access it if you need to adjust the settings while you’re away.
Schedule Air Conditioner Maintenance
The tips we’ve discussed up to this point are certainly valuable, but investing in AC maintenance is by far the best way to prepare your HVAC system for the warm months ahead. Our HVAC technicians will take a close look at your entire unit and diagnose any issues that developed during its downtime. We’ll provide you with a detailed overview of your AC repair options, and if necessary, provide you with advice about your replacement options. We recognize that an unexpected air conditioner installation can be a financial burden, and that’s why we offer flexible financing options for qualifying customers.
