Preparing Your HVAC for the Cooling Season

05/05/22

As hotter weather approaches, it’s important to ensure your air conditioning system is ready to take on the season. On sweltering days, being without an adequate HVAC system is not only inconvenient but also dangerous.

Before summer arrives, use this checklist to prepare your home and AC for summer weather.

Replace Your Air Filters

One of the most critical maintenance practices is regularly cleaning or changing your air filter. A dirty air filter can strain your system and negatively impact your indoor air quality. When you don’t change them regularly – every one to two months – you also put your system at risk of breakdowns or malfunctions.

Deep Clean Your Air Ducts

Inevitably, dust, dander, and pet hair can find their way into your air ducts, impacting your system and indoor air quality. Caffi Services can help keep your ducts clean and working optimally with our duct maintenance services. This will prevent blockages and can also significantly improve your indoor air quality.

Clean the Air Conditioner Condenser

Your central AC’s condenser is the unit outside your home and can become clogged with debris like sticks and leaves. With your HVAC system shut off, examine the area around the condenser and remove any debris.

You can also use a hose to clean the outside of the unit. If there’s anything you can’t remove, or you notice damage to the unit, contact Caffi Services.

Increase Your Home’s Insulation

If your home’s insulation is lacking, it could make it harder than necessary to keep your home cool. If you’re not sure whether you have adequate insulation, check to ensure your attic’s floor joists are hidden with insulation. You should also inspect your air duct insulation to ensure there are no tears.

Clean Your Vents

Vacuum and clean your air vents to ensure appropriate airflow throughout the summer.

Start Your HVAC System

It’s essential to test your system and thermostat before the weather gets too hot. If the air isn’t adequately cooling after running the system twice, contact the professionals at Caffi Services for a consultation.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

It’s important to have a professional periodically inspect your HVAC system and perform routine maintenance to ensure everything is in good working order. This process usually includes checking:

  • Refrigerant levels
  • Components of electricity
  • Coils for condensers
  • Condenser motor
  • Capacitors
  • Thermostat
  • Transformer
  • Drainage lines

The trained technicians at Caffi Services are here for all your routine AC maintenance needs.
