How To Prepare Your Air Conditioner For Summer

Spring is in the air here in Calgary. Air conditioners are being looked at favorably, but it is still too soon to get them revved up and ready for summer. The rainy season is currently upon us which is actually a boon if you are looking to get your air conditioner tuned up in time for summer.

This is actually the ideal time of the year to service your air conditioner in Calgary because the sudden influx of calls to plumbing companies hasn’t begun. Most people are content to wait until there is an issue with their air conditioner but then there are many days and nights left waiting and sweating for the repair person to arrive.

This situation is easily avoidable. All you have to do to prevent it is get a spring service from a plumbing company in Calgary. However, that can be a bit overkill for some. Situations, where you have just bought an air conditioner in Calgary, may preclude you from calling for a service, or if your money is currently tied up with other spring cleaning services it may not be the right time.

In these situations, there are a few things you can do to get the best out of your air conditioner. They include:

The Right Steps to Maintain Your Air Conditioner

One of the first steps you should take when maintaining your air conditioner is to give it a good cleaning. Wipe down the outside of the unit, and if possible, remove the intake cover and give it a good scrub as well. Removing the debris can be an integral part of maintaining the unit as it will reduce the amount of dust and debris that can enter into the sensitive internal components. 

If you have managed to successfully remove the intake cover, take some time to search for the evaporator coil. This is one of the main components of your air conditioning system, and cleaning it will ensure optimal performance. 

Finally, one of the last steps you can take when maintaining your air conditioning system is to clean the drain pan. This would ordinarily be done when seeking service from a plumbing company, but in the absence of that service, this step is not terribly complex. Look near the bottom of the unit for the drain pan, as determined by your specific AC system, and clean out the drain pan. This will keep things running smoothly.
