How to Maintain Your Air Conditioner This Summer


Spring is finally in the air and it seems it’s already time to start thinking about ways to stay cool in the summer. CLARITY by ClimateCare wants to ensure that you make the most of your air conditioner by getting it ready for the summer!

Here’s what you can do:

Give your air conditioner a good spring cleaning!

You may have given your home a good spring cleaning by now, but did you spring clean your air conditioner? The way you maintain your AC has a big impact on how it will function!

The first step you’ll want to take is to clean the surface of your outdoor air conditioner with a low-pressure hose. If there is grass or weeds growing around the area, then it’s a good idea to make sure that the area is well maintained.

You’ll need a licensed professional to take care of the rest. When you purchase an air conditioner with CLARITY by ClimateCare, the maintenance is included!

Be energy efficient

Now that the days are longer and warmer, you may start to notice the difference in your energy bills but depending on how much you use your air conditioner, that difference may include an increase.

To prevent that from happening, it’s a good idea to be mindful of how much you use your air conditioner in the spring and summer. Doing so will save you money and the environment!

One way to start is by making sure that you only have the air conditioner running when people are home. Who do you need to keep cool in an empty home? Another simple solution is to keep the air conditioner running low at night.

Sure, it’s nice to stay cool at night, but you don’t need to be cold! Fans are also helpful in allowing air to circulate around your home and use much less energy than air conditioners. Keep this in mind for days that are less humid.

Last, but certainly not least, be sure to have your air conditioner serviced so that it works at its ultimate best for the hot summer months. At the end of the day, your air conditioner should be a reliable source of comfort when you need it the most.

That’s the peace of mind CLARITY by ClimateCare aims to provide. To learn more about our products and services, feel free to contact us today!
