Always make sure that you clear out around the exterior A/C unit before you start running the cooling system for the summer.
To ensure that the air conditioning system will run correctly throughout the long, hot, summer, you need to make sure that you are cleaning out around the outside of your A/C unit. When you first look at it, it might seem like it’s too much for you to handle, but it’s really not all that difficult if you know what you’re doing. Always make sure that you clean off the top of the fan cage, just in case any sticks, branches, grass, or vines have gotten stuck in there. After you’ve cleaned the top of the machine, remove the cage of the fan and make sure that there’s nothing inside that shouldn’t be there. You can also remove the side covers and clean out any dirt that has somehow made its way in over the fall and the winter. Sometimes dirt and debris will blow inside and get stuck there during the times when the A/C unit is not in use. Taking just a few minutes to double check these things will definitely be good for you in the long run. You will be happy that you did all of the dirty work before you turned your air conditioning on for the first time. Doing these things will help you to make sure that your cooling system is operating the way that it should during the summer. This will also help you to save money on your cooling bills through the summer.
