3 of the Best Ways To Prepare Your HVAC for the Summer

If you live in Reading or anywhere else in Berks County, you know the hot and humid summers aren’t fun to deal with. Your air conditioner must be able to handle cooling your home every summer. You can take steps to ensure your cooling system is ready to conquer the heat. Below are three of the best ways to do this.

1. Schedule a Tune-Up

The best thing you can do for your air conditioner is get a tune-up in the spring before the summer hits. During this maintenance appointment, your HVAC technician will inspect your AC for damage, loose internal parts, clogged lines, and ductwork, among other things. By cleaning out your system, making simple repairs, and ensuring tight connections, your technician will help ensure your system can handle maximum usage during the summer.

2. Clean the Outdoor Unit

Your system’s outdoor unit is just as indispensable as the indoor components. Keep the area around the outdoor unit clean to help the system function optimally throughout the summer. You can have the technician do this during the spring maintenance appointment, but you can also handle cleaning during the summer. Sweep away things like leaves and branches and ensure nothing is blocking the unit.

3. Put in a New Filter

Before summer starts, ensure your system has a new air filter. A clean filter will block dust and dirt from circulating throughout your home, keeping your air fresh, breathable, and cool. It’s usually fine to wait about three months before replacing the air filter, but swap out the filter as needed if you plan on running your AC more than normal.
