There are many things that people can do to keep their AC unit working well instead of relying on AC service for everything. One of these is that if you wrap up your air conditioning for the winter, it’s important to remember to take off that covering when it gets close to AC season. If you turn off the circuit breaker that controls your air conditioner for the winter, don’t forget to turn that back on when spring comes.
Your AC condenser coil can also be cleaned by the owner with water. It often gets dirty and dusty over time, and it will work better when the coil is cleaned.
When winter is over and AC season is coming, it’s a good idea to look inside your unit to make sure it looks to be in good condition. Broken and bare wires that develop over the winter will need to be replaced before you use your system. It’s also a good idea to check for mouse nests in the unit. They are commonly built inside AC units over the winter months. With some simple maintenance of your AC unit, you can be well-prepared for the hottest months of the year.
