Summer will be here before you know it and we all know just how hot it can get in Tampa once the warmest of months arrive. In fact, you may already be getting a bit toasty when you are sitting in your home, and it’s only April. Keeping this in mind, you want to know that you will be able to escape the heat whenever you need to this summer. How can you be sure of that? Well it starts with preparing your A/C unit to ensure it will not, under any circumstances, stop working this summer. Continue reading below to learn precisely how to do this so that your summer is as enjoyable as possible, even on the hottest days.
Make sure your filter is clean
When your air filter becomes dirty, the airflow to your air conditioner is restricted. When this happens for an extended amount of time, your air conditioner can freeze up and stop working entirely. This means you will either have to pay for a hefty repair or replace your air conditioner altogether. We don’t want that to happen to you. Instead, purchase an inexpensive new filter and ensure that your cooling unit remains in good shape.
Clear your outdoor unit of any debris
Your outside unit has one job and that is to release heat into the outside air. If you notice that there are leaves, branches or any of debris surrounding your unit, you will want to clear it away as soon as possible. Anything that obstructs the airflow of your unit can eventually be the reason the whole things stops working.
Open and clear your air vents
If the vents in your home are closed or blocked by furniture, you may want to rethink that choice. After all, when a vent is unable to release cool air through certain exits, you air conditioner will have to work much hard to cool your home. This means you will also likely notice that your energy bills are much higher than they need to be.
