How To Prepare Your AC for Summer

How can you make sure your air conditioner or central air system is in tip-top shape going into this season? Follow these three simple tips:

  • Replace the Filters– In order to maximize efficiency, replace your filters once a year. You can buy filters in your size online, or just call SmartHouse and we’ll replace them for you. AC filter replacement is a part of our regular service partner plan maintenance. As you change the filters, make sure you also remember to change your thermostat settings from “heat” to “cool.”
  • Clean Your Coils– The condenser coil in your AC is what creates the cool air you need. When dirt, dust, and other materials get stuck in the grates, it needs to work harder in order to provide the same amount of cool air — meaning more expensive utility bills and less effective cooling. You can prevent this simply by turning off the device, removing the cover, and gently spraying the condenser coils with a garden hose.
  • Get an AC Tune-Up– Manufacturers recommend at least one professional air conditioning tune up every year. You won’t need to worry about having your cooling system break down in the middle of a hot summer day when you get a SmartHouse air conditioning tune-up! The St. Louis HVAC experts at SmartHouse offer a premier AC tune-up at lower-than-ever prices for customers who call for ac maintenance early on. Get your AC tune-up today, and go the rest of your spring and summer 100% worry free!
