Five Things To Do Before Turning On Your Air Conditioning System After Winter

If your AC remains off during the whole winter, this is still enough time to make your AC functioning problematic. Even during the cold season, if you have covered it and protected it from harsh winters, it compromises its functionality and is not good enough to start using it again in summers. 

Refer to the 5 Steps Given Below:

Instead of spending lots of money on repairs, choose a comfortable AC cooling experience. 

Clean the Build-Up of Dirt and Debris

During the whole winter season, dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate in your air conditioner. The outdoor AC unit is more exposed to the accumulation of dirt particles. Clean the indoor, outdoor and get AC Repair in Hamilton.

To clean the indoor unit, replace the AC filter. Use the vacuum carefully and clean all the sticky dirt. If you have kept anything that can hinder the air vents, remove them for better airflow.

Outdoor Unit Maintenance

To clean the outdoor AC unit, the first thing you need to do is unscrew the side panels. Clean the blower fan with water and a brush. Use a water hose or condenser coil cleaning spray to clean the condenser.

Also, prune the branches, shrubs, bushes, etc., to prevent them from entering your outdoor AC unit. Clean the drain lines with a flush of chlorine bleach and water.

Electrical Connection 

Inspect the wiring of your AC unit. There should be no broken or loose wiring. If there are any, get them fixed before starting using your AC. Loose wiring can lead to fluctuation in power supply. Broken wiring can cause fire risk or short circuit. Both the problems cause nothing but harm to your AC.

Verify AC Performance

After following all the processes:

  • Verify its performance when your AC gets completely dry.
  • Switch on your AC and check the airflow.
  • Check if there is any leakage to seal it on time. If everything is well with your AC performance, the next step is calling for AC services.

Schedule an Air Conditioner Tune-Up

Even if you have inspected your whole AC unit and followed all the processes, there are some complex and minor details that you may have missed during the inspection. 

A technician will detect those details and increase the efficiency of your air conditioner so that you can enjoy the excellent AC performance throughout the summer season. An AC tune-up will keep you cool throughout the summer. Schedule the service of AC Tune-up in Hamilton, ON and the surrounding areas.
