How to Get Your AC Unit Ready for Spring

When springtime rolls around, it’s a good idea to start thinking about getting your AC unit back in shape! Wintertime can be tough on our outdoor units – freezing temperatures and wintry weather conditions can affect the performance of your AC unit. This is why it’s so important to prep your system, just in time for the thaw:

  • Check your outdoor unit panels. Your outdoor unit panels must be in place, in order to protect your system. You should check to ensure that all panels are still there and are aligned correctly – winter can really wreak havoc on them. If you do discover that a panel is missing, then it’s time to contact a professional HVAC technician. Don’t wait!
  • Clear away debris from the panels. After a long winter, it’s likely that you’ll find trash or other debris nestled in your outdoor coil or panels. Be sure to remove as much of this debris as possible, so that air flow will not be blocked.
  • Change your unit’s air filters. This is a fantastic time to change out your air filters, since they’ll likely have gathered a lot more debris than normal. Clear air filters are essential when it comes to a smoothly-running AC unit, so don’t skimp on this step. Don’t be afraid to call professional technician if you need assistance!
