Spring Tips for Your Home's Air Conditioning System
Reset the pullout switch in your central air conditioner's disconnect box (which you pulled out last fall) or turn on the necessary circuit breaker. This small step prepares your central air for instant operation when the weather turns warm.
Trial Run — If you haven't turned your central air on yet this season, give it a brief trial test run. By taking this commonly overlooked tip, you'll solve any present problems before the Summertime rush
Change/clean filters — Disposable air filter users, now is the time to change. If you put an Air Control Master III in your electronic air cleaner slot last winter, change it now. The "hardware store filters also need changing, as they do every month. Monthly cleaning of the permanent filter elements of electronic air cleaners should also be on your agenda. If the old filter is very dirty, you may wish to consider a spring duct cleaning.
Cold air returns — Close your home's lower cold air returns (the ones nearest the baseboard) and open the upper ones. If you have high and low cold air returns that open and close, close the lower set (used during winter) and open the upper duct.
Chimney liner inspection — If you own a chimney liner that's under warranty, call Air Comfort Systems to schedule a chimney inspection. Remember, failure to have a professional inspection performed annually will void your warranty.
Make a date — Schedule your Air Comfort Systems Maintenance Visit for later this summer. 414/778-5680 .Appointments will be easier to make after our service people deal with season-starting emergencies, and your system will probably be fine until our Maintenance Tech arrives.
