Preparing Your AC for Fall and Winter

Preparing Your AC for Fall and Winter

It may seem like the summer has just begun, but the colder seasons will be here sooner than you think. Once the fall and winter roll around, your air conditioner will get a lot less use. This doesn't mean that you should ignore it, however. You need to prepare your air conditioner for the upcoming seasons in order to avoid damage or other annoying problems. Fortunately, the experts here at Day and Nite Plumbing and Heating have just the tips that you need.

Change Out the Air Filter

The start of a new season is always a great time to change out the current air filter for a new one. That way, when it gets warm again your air conditioner will be ready to get to work. Otherwise, you might turn it on and realize that the air is not blowing properly or cooling your home. That's not even to mention potential air quality issues. Changing out the filter is a quick and easy way to prepare for the colder months.

Clean up the Condenser Unit

Now's also a good time to clean up any debris from around the condenser unit, the part of your HVAC system that is located outside. Leaves, sticks, and other bits of natural debris can affect how it performs. As the leaves start to fall off of trees, make sure you pay particularly close attention to the area around your condenser unit to ensure that your air conditioning will be in working order come spring.

You can also place foam pipe covers around any exterior exposed pipes to better insulate them. This can protect them from damage from lower temperatures. At the same time, cover your outdoor unit with a waterproof cover that can protect your HVAC system from the elements. Then check it every so often to make sure that the cover is secure and that even more natural debris isn't piling up.

Clean the Coils

The coils of your air conditioning unit may be dirty after a summer full of hard work. Cleaning these coils before the start of a new season is advisable. By taking a little extra time to clean your air conditioner you can improve air quality in your home, prevent the spread of allergens, and extend the life of your equipment.

Check Your Thermostat

With the outdoor temperatures changing, you'll want to make sure that you're keeping the indoor temperature comfortable. Increase or decrease the temperature if need be, and make sure that your settings won't cause your air conditioner to turn on unexpectedly or unnecessarily.

Schedule Maintenance

It may also be wise to call in some professional HVAC technicians to take a look at your air conditioner. We can spot small problems before they turn into bigger, more expensive ones. We'll make sure that your air conditioner doesn't have an issue that's going to get worse during the time it lies dormant.

Shop for New Equipment

It could also be time to retire your air conditioner completely. In recent years, HVAC equipment has only become more efficient. If your air conditioner is old, purchasing new equipment could end up lowering your energy use and your electric bill along with it. Our HVAC installers would be glad to help you find the equipment you need.
