Now that the weather is finally heating up plus the Winter is over, there’s something that you should do if you have central a/c in your home. A lot of people seem to forget about the exterior a/c unit that is outside of your home. Occasionally, sticks, shrubbery, weeds, or other outdoor debris can get too close to your a/c unit plus mess up your cooling system, however you want to make sure that before you turn the air conditioning system on for the first time in the Summer that you have completely cleaned around the air conditioning system unit outside. Our air conditioning system plan is located back behind the garage, plus occasionally I completely forget that it’s even back there. Out of sight, out of mind, plus all that! Well, a couple of years ago, I made the giant mistake of not checking the a/c unit out before I turned it on for the first time in the Summer plus it was a immense mistake. The day that I turned it on for the first time, the weather outside was really hot. The temperature was entirely up in the nineties plus it wasn’t even suppertime yet. I remember it well because the whole thing was truly traumatizing to me! When I turned the air conditioning system on, there was a different grinding sound followed by a scraping sound outside. Then, rapidly, the a/c vents started to blow out a terrible, acrid odor into the house. I ran outside to look at the air conditioning system unit plus there was a giant raccoon inside of the air conditioning system unit. It was terrible! I will never turn the a/c on again unless I check it first.
