Summer is just around the corner.
One thing we have noticed over the years working in the air conditioning industry is people really rely on their air conditioners during extreme heat or extreme cold but they do not prepare for the extremes before they arrive.
With well insulated and designed homes people find that they may not need to use their air-conditioning system during the nice spring weather.
However you don’t want your system to let you down at the beginning of a heat wave because it’s the first time you have really tested the performance since the extremes of winter.
We highly recommend testing your system before it gets too late and service agents are booked out.
It doesn’t take that long to clean your filters and test a system.
Clean your return air filter and if the material looks tatty or has holes in it get it replaced. A filter with holes in it allows dust to build up on your air-conditioning unit and will affect its ability to air-condition your home.
Make sure your air conditioner works in both heating and cooling mode. If it isn’t working in either mode organise someone to take a look.
Check the operation of any zones in the home. Even in the study / spare room. You never know when a guest may show up and the last thing you want is to not have them comfortable.
Something which takes a few minutes of your time could mean the difference between a comfortable home through summer and suffering through a heatwave.
