Below is a list of how to get your AC ready for the Raleigh summer.
- Enroll in a maintenance plan. The Raleigh summer is long: it begins in spring and ends in fall. Ensuring the effectiveness and efficiency of your system ensures that you will avoid hot and uncomfortable temperatures within your home. The Raleigh Comfort Club boasts extensive benefits, such as 15% discount on repairs, bi-annual visits, priority service, no overtime charges, and a monthly payment plan. Let the pros keep your home cool.
- Clean your air filters. Air filters are there to prevent dust, pollen, dander, vermin, and other particles from entering your ductwork. They are an essential part of the home cooling system, and when they become dirty or clogged with debris, they can negatively impact the efficiency of your AC, causing the system to overwork itself, which can lead to costly repairs.
- Give it some room. Check to see if any organic matter or debris has built up around your outdoor unit. Depending on the type of unit and where it is placed, it may be necessary to trim surrounding hedges, or to clean up any twigs, leaves or other foreign objects that may be lodged against the outside of the device. Your AC needs proper ventilation to work properly.
