Summer is just around the corner, and you know what that means – it’s time to get your AC unit ready for the heat! Here at Bill Lea Service, we understand the importance of having a properly functioning air conditioning system during those scorching summer days. That’s why we’ve put together some simple tips to help you prepare your AC unit for the months ahead.

1. Change Your Air Filters

One of the easiest and most important maintenance tasks you can do for your AC unit is to regularly change the air filters. Over time, filters can become clogged with dust, dirt, and other debris, reducing airflow and efficiency. By replacing your filters regularly, you can ensure that your AC unit is running smoothly and efficiently all summer long.

2. Clean the Outdoor Unit

Your AC’s outdoor unit can accumulate dirt, leaves, and other debris over the winter months, hindering its performance. Take some time to clean the area around the outdoor unit, removing any debris and ensuring that it has plenty of space to breathe. You can also gently clean the unit itself with a hose to remove any built-up grime.

3. Schedule a Professional Tune-Up

While there are some maintenance tasks you can do yourself, it’s always a good idea to schedule a professional tune-up for your AC unit before the summer heat kicks in. A trained technician can inspect your system, identify any potential issues, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to ensure that your AC is running at its best.

4. Check Your Thermostat

Make sure your thermostat is working properly and set to the correct temperature for your comfort. Consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat if you haven’t already, which can help you save energy and money by automatically adjusting the temperature based on your schedule.

5. Consider Investing in a Maintenance Plan

If you want to take the hassle out of AC maintenance, consider investing in a maintenance plan with Bill Lea Service. Our plans include regular inspections, priority service, and discounts on repairs, helping you keep your AC unit in top condition without any stress.
