Make Sure Your AC is Ready to Beat the Heat!

Air conditioner in need of service or repair.Warm weather is right around the corner, but are you ready to beat the heat? Contrary to popular belief, you shouldn’t just fire up your air conditioner without any preparation. Think about it like this:

If you were gearing up to take a cross country road trip from Orem to Miami, would you just jump in your car and go? If you answered with a resounding “no” you’re like the vast majority of people. You’d probably take a swing into your local auto shop and have them tune up your car. At the very least, you’d probably get an oil change or rotate your tires to prepare for the long road ahead.

When it comes to your air conditioner, you can think of summer as that “long road ahead.” Make sure that you schedule air conditioning service in Orem, UT with our team this spring.

How to Get Your AC Ready

So we’ve established that you need to get your air conditioner ready for warm weather, but how can you do that? Try these simple tips:

#1. Schedule a Maintenance Appointment

The obvious first step when you’re getting your air conditioner ready for warm weather is to schedule a maintenance appointment. Although you probably already came to this conclusion, we want to underscore the importance of this step. Maintenance is a chance for a professional to take a closer look at your air conditioning unit and eliminate any problems at their source before they become an issue for your home. Maintenance is cost-effective, preventative, and will help you stay cool for less. You can contact our amazing team of technicians today to schedule an appointment or learn more about our maintenance plan.

#2. Look into Upgrades

If you want to stay as cool as possible this summer then it’s a good idea to upgrade your air conditioning system in spring. A great first step is to upgrade your thermostat. If you don’t already have a smart thermostat in your home then you’re doing yourself a disservice. Smart thermostats learn how you like to cool your home. This technology is great because these thermostats then anticipate your needs, learn your schedule, and even highlight areas that you can save. A thermostat upgrade is a bit pricey, but it’s a great ally to battle our Utah summer heat.

#3. Maintain the System on Your End

We really encourage homeowners to have a professional take care of most aspects of their air conditioning system, but there are things that you can do to maintain the system on your own. If you haven’t already, you should take some time this spring to clean your outdoor unit and replace your AC filter. Cleaning your outdoor unit is exactly what it sounds like—remove any ostensible debris from the system to make sure the system doesn’t face the unnecessary strain. Replacing the filter in your air conditioner is a great way to help your system run at its highest capacity.
