How to Get Your Air Conditioning System Ready for Fall
If you’re a resident of Florida’s Treasure Coast, you know how important it is to regularly service your air conditioner. With the summer coming to an end, the beginning of fall is one of the best times to give your HVAC system a little TLC. These simple actions can make your air conditioner run all winter long without fail.
Clean Out the Duct Work
If you neglected to have your trusty HVAC technician clean your ductwork in the spring, now is the time to do it. If you have the equipment, skills and some general AC knowledge, you can clean the ductwork yourself. If not, call your local HVAC professionals and schedule a cleaning.
Change the Air Filter
You should be changing the air filter within your HVAC system each month, but especially after a hot summer. Changing the air filter before fall can ensure your system runs efficiently all season long.
Wipe Down Internal Components
Even the tightest central or window-mounted air conditioning system is going to acquire a good amount of particulate buildup on the inside over time. Clean off the condensation and evaporator coils, trays, vents and any pipe work that looks like it needs buffing. A clean air conditioning system is an efficient one.
Lubricate Any Moving Parts
For the most part, air conditioning hardware is far less complicated than your average internal combustion engine. Regardless, there are still moving parts like blowers that need lubrication and fine-tuning. Ensure that there is no rust present on these components and lubricate them properly before the fall season.
Calibrate the Thermostat
Any measurement tool that isn’t a carpenter’s square will become inaccurate over time with enough usage. Your AC’s thermostat is no different. If you want your air conditioner to deliver great performance and be efficient at the same time, a thermostat calibration is required.
