Is Your Home Air Conditioner Ready for Summer?

With the cold season drawing to a close and spring just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to get a head start on preparing your home for the oncoming warm weather. Last summer’s record-breaking temperatures sent demand for air conditioning repair through the roof, so it’s a smart move to take care of any maintenance your system might need before the mercury rises.

If you haven’t used your home’s air conditioning since last summer, there are few items that you should add to your spring cleaning to-do list.

Turn on your unit.

Check that cool air is coming from your system’s vents. It’s a good idea to do this before you actually need to use your air con.

Replace filters.

This ensures that flow of air from your system is not obstructed. It’s recommended that filters be replaced every 2-3 months.

Clear external debris.

Organic matter such as leaves can build up around the outdoor components of your system, which can impede performance and efficiency.

Check line insulation.

Check the insulation on your unit’s coolant lines for wear and tear – cracking, peeling or fraying insulation needs to be professionally addressed.

Book in a service.

It’s worth investing in an annual tune-up for your system. Even if it looks like everything’s in working order, regular professional servicing will maximise your unit’s performance and efficiency, extend its lifespan and minimise your chances of a breakdown over summer.  

Don’t put off your pre-summer air conditioning service. Melbourne homes can get ahead now by calling the team at Ideal Air on (03) 8582 3031.
