Why Prepare Your AC Unit?

Summers in St. Louis are hot! The last thing you want is your AC system to fail when you need it the most. If you haven’t had your system on for a while, you shouldn’t expect it to work at total compacity when you first turn it on. The goal of preparing your AC system for summer is to minimize the strain on the components. You can save money on your energy bill by reducing the heat energy the AC needs to dissipate.

Clean Filters and Vents

Removing dust, debris, and anything else that obstructs cool air from entering your home will help your AC be ready for summer. In addition, regularly replacing air filters is an easy and inexpensive way to maintain your system. Dirty air filters stress the AC because it restricts airflow and forces your system to work harder. Finally, clean any visible debris from the vents inside your home. Dust them often and don’t place furniture in front of them.

Your Home Needs Protection from the Sun Too!

The intensity of the hot sun beating down on your house all summer is significant. As the materials on your home heat up, it causes the inside of your home to heat up. Therefore, investing in energy-efficient windows, hanging blackout curtains, adequately sealing doors and windows, and installing a smart thermostat can help keep your house cool. These tips will help your AC unit run more efficiently, saving money on your energy bill.
