Right now, spring is treating us to warm and pleasant weather in Mesa, AZ. You may have already turned on your home’s cooling system, whether switching the heat pump to “cool” or activating the central air conditioner, for a few days. However, the real heat is lurking right around the corner, and that’s when your air conditioning will truly begin to earn it keep for the year.
Summers in the Valley of the Sun can turn brutal. We have some tips from HVAC experts to help make your transition into full-bore air conditioning mode go with as few troubles as possible.
Johns Refrigeration is here to help you switch to the summer heat. We have a maintenance program to prepare your system, and offer air conditioning repairs in Mesa, AZ for those times when the best preparations can’t stop malfunctions.
Here are a few things to consider before your AC comes on for the season
- Schedule regular maintenance: You should always have a maintenance technician inspect your air conditioning and give it a tune-up once a year, and spring is the best time to have the work done so the system will be in top condition for the summer heat. An air conditioner running at its best will also operate without cost overruns, keeping your electric bill from making abrupt spikes.
- Handle any repair needs: A maintenance check will identify places where you air conditioner should have repairs done before turning on for the season. You may already know about possible malfunctions because of unusual behavior from the unit (strange noises, a drop in airflow). Don’t procrastinate about scheduling the work to fix these problems: getting trapped in the summer heat waiting for repairs for a broken unit is no fun.
- Change the air filter: This is a part of air conditioner and heat pump maintenance you can do on your own. The air filter that protects the inside of the system from damage will develop dirt and dust clogs while it works, and unless it’s changed regularly for a clean filter, it will start to cut off airflow and permit particles to enter the cabinet. During cooling season, you should change the filter once a month.
