The National Weather Service has recorded temperatures as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the city of Tallahassee, Florida, and the surrounding communities, although they usually stay in the 90’s. Preparing your AC system for the hot and sticky days ahead is essential to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures for you and your family in our area. Here are three ways you can prepare your air conditioning system for summer temperatures this year.
Replace Your Air Filters
The U.S. Department of Energy lists changing your air filters as the single most important maintenance task you can perform for your HVAC system. A new air filter can improve your indoor air quality and can reduce the energy needed to cool your Tallahassee home by as much as 15 percent. This can add up to lower utility bills and improved indoor comfort for you and your family this year.
Check Your Condensate Line
A clogged condensate line can cause water to back up in the drain pan, causing your AC to blow warm air, reducing the efficiency and performance of your AC system. Scheduling regular maintenance visits from a qualified technician can help you avoid these problems and the expensive AC repairs. If you are familiar with the condensate line, you may be able to clear any clogs on your own.
Schedule Spring AC System Maintenance
Making an appointment for spring AC maintenance is the best way to prepare this key system for the demands of hotter weather this summer. Some of the services your technician will perform on your behalf include the following:
- Cleaning your condensate line and treating it to prevent algae growth
- Checking the coils, compressor, capacitors and refrigerant levels
- Changing your air filters
- Cleaning the coils of your indoor and outdoor units
- Testing the performance of your thermostat
- Lubricating the moving parts of your HVAC system
