Air Conditioner Maintenance for Summer’s Soaring Temperatures

This entry was posted in Blog on by .

We Arizonans know that June, July and August can be unbearably hot. Air conditioning doesn’t just keep us comfortable, it’s necessary for staying active and productive throughout the long desert summer. If you own a home in the greater Phoenix area, you definitely don’t want to take chances with your air conditioning system. One summertime malfunction can throw your entire household into chaos. Right now, before the triple digits hit, is the perfect time to take some proactive steps and to schedule air conditioner maintenance.  Here’s what to do to stay cool all summer-long:

Flip Your Thermostat to Cool

If you haven’t done so already, turn your thermostat to the “cool” setting. Within moments, you should hear the telltale sound of your air conditioner turning on. If you don’t, you may have a problem. Better to find this out now rather than when it’s 110 degrees outside.

Replace Your Filters

Many homeowners overlook this essential household task which can extend the life of your air conditioner and make it run more efficiently. With high dust levels in the Valley, getting into the habit of replacing or cleaning system air filters is a proactive and valuable air conditioner maintenance strategy that you complete in just minutes.

Clear the Area Around the Base of Your Air Conditioner

Winter and spring storms often result in leaves, dirt, weeds and more collecting around the base of your air conditioner’s condenser. This is the perfect time to clear the area to not only increase air flow but also to provide an unobstructed area for your HVAC technician to perform maintenance or repairs.

Schedule a Maintenance Check

When temperatures climb above the 90s, Chandler Air gets flooded with calls from homeowners who need repairs on their air conditioners. While we are happy to help, we don’t want any customer to suffer the hassle of a malfunction.

The investment in preventive maintenance is well-worth every penny to help keep you cool throughout the summer.
