How to Get Your Air Conditioner Ready After Winter

5.0 Rating

2053191377_8e2f616c58_mThe cold days of winter are finally behind us, and it’s getting to be the time of year when we turn off our furnaces for good and switch to using our air conditioners. But the transition between using your heating and cooling systems is a bit more complicated than just pressing a button, and there are some things you should do to help bring your air conditioner back to life after the past months of inactivity. Today we’re going to help you do that by talking about how to get your air conditioner ready after winter!


Test your air conditioner while it’s still mild outside


Before we get into specifics, it’s important to mention that you should turn your air conditioner on sometime before it gets too hot outside. You don’t want to throw your air conditioner in the trenches for the first time of the year on a 90 degree day. Instead, test your system soon while it’s still not too hot outside so that it can get back into gear more gradually. This will allow you to catch and take care of any operational problems now instead of waiting until it’s hot outside and it’s harder to book an appointment for a repair because everyone else’s systems are breaking down. Also, don’t forget to schedule your annual air conditioner tune-up with Jerry Kelly!

    • Turn on the power to your unit. First and foremost, if you are turning on your air conditioner for the first time you want to make sure that it is receiving power. If you have power switches for your air conditioner at your circuit breaker and/or near your condenser unit, make sure that the switches are flipped to “on.”
