Prep Your AC for the Texas Heat: Spring AC Maintenance Checklist

Summers in Texas mean long stretches of intense heat and humidity. To keep you cool and comfortable all season, it’s important to ensure your air conditioner is ready and working efficiently and effectively.

In this blog, the HVAC experts at AirCo walk you through our simple AC checklist to ensure you can rely on your system during the hottest months of the year. 

Change Air Filters

Clean air filters are a great way to ensure your system works efficiently. Dirty, clogged filters limit airflow to your system, making it much harder to cool your home. That’s why we recommend homeowners change their filters every three to six months.

Fresh filters also mean improved air quality as they help reduce pollen, mold, pet dander, and more from circulating throughout your home. Get your system off to a good start by purchasing and installing new filters before summer.

Clean Debris on the AC Unit

Before starting your system for the first time in the season, make sure the outdoor unit is free of debris or plants. Twigs, leaves, and weeds can all accumulate around the unit and prevent the necessary airflow for optimal performance. We recommend clearing three feet of space in all directions.

Adjust Your Thermostat

A new season is a great time to test your thermostat. Before moving to your summer settings, make sure the thermostat is working by running the AC for about an hour and checking if the thermostat is accurate.

This is also an ideal time to review your programming to ensure your AC settings are to your liking and appropriate for your schedule.

Make Any Necessary AC Repairs

Nothing is more frustrating than an AC breakdown on the first hot day of the year. Prevent these issues by scheduling any necessary AC repairs before the start of the season.

By addressing problems early, you can prevent even more costly repairs. Plus, if your AC is on its last legs and needs to be replaced, it’s much better to complete repairs before the intense heat. 

Consider Your Ductwork

Many homeowners forget the importance of their ductwork. These pathways are responsible for delivering cool air throughout your home. Spring is a great time to schedule duct cleaning to ensure that dust and debris aren’t blown throughout your home once your AC turns on.

This is also a great time for your technician to look for any areas that need to be sealed to prevent leaks and improve your system’s efficiency.

Schedule an AC Tune-Up
