3 Tips to Prepare Your Heating & Cooling System for Summer, Lorain, Ohio

As the temperatures rise, you need to prepare your heating and cooling system for the workload. According to the staff at McArthur & Sons Inc. in Lorain, OH, many homeowners make the mistake of not properly preparing their HVAC system for summer, which can result in breakdowns, inefficiency, and other issues. They want to share a few crucial tips to help you get your system ready. Before turning your system on, go through the checklist below.

3 Ways to Prepare Your HVAC System for Summer

1. Clean Your Unit

If you’ve endured a harsh winter, your system likely needs a cleaning. Branches, foliage, and other debris that may have gotten inside can interfere with parts and erode piping, hoses, and wires. Start by giving your system a complete cleaning. Clear all debris from inside and around it and hose it down. You can also clean the condenser coils and internal parts to optimize efficiency.

Over time, debris and other buildup will clog your filters and ductwork. This not only lowers the air quality in your home, but also makes it difficult for cold air to circulate. Before turning your system on, replace or clean your air filters. This will ensure you have unobstructed airflow from your heating and cooling system.

3. Schedule an Inspection

The best way to prepare your heating and cooling system is to have a professional do a comprehensive inspection. They’ll do a top-to-bottom exam, looking for any signs of wear, damage, and potential breakdowns. They can also do a complete cleaning, make any necessary repairs, and ensure that your system will work correctly so that you’re comfortable.
