Get Your A/C Ready: 4 Things You Should Do TODAY
Are you prepared for the warmer temperatures that will be hitting our region? If you haven't done so already, it's finally time to think about that air conditioning system that has been sitting through the winter.
Here are a few tips to implement TODAY in order to prepare your HVAC system for warmer weather:
1) Check Your Air Filter To Ensure Clean Air Flow
It is good to change out or clean furnace filters once a month during spring and summer (common allergy seasons). Spring cleaning is the perfect time to update all filters and begin to breathe easy again.
2) Remove Outdoor Debris From Collecting Around Your A/C
Be mindful of any landscaping materials that have collected around your outdoor air conditioning unit throughout the season. Debris and plants that will grow in and around the a/c will impact its performance.

3) Turn On Your Air Conditioner BEFORE You Need It
Even though the temperatures outside have been comfortable recently, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you turn on your A/C sometime this week and let it run for a bit to ensure there are no issues. Check for malfunctions, temperature accuracy and proper operation.
---> We would rather identify and address an A/C issue on a mild-weathered day than on the first 80+ degree day of the year. Contact Logan Services for help with any air conditioner repairs.
4) Schedule Your A/C Tune-Up To Increase Performance
Once you turn your system on to confirm that the cooling mode is operating, you'll want to contact your HVAC professional as soon possible to schedule for your seasonal A/C tune-up. A cooling system maintenance appointment has many benefits. This annual visit can help prevent spring or summer A/C breakdowns, and it can also extend the life of your unit by addressing any small problems that can often go unnoticed and cause unnecessary wear and tear on your system.
