Spring flowers are blooming in Dover, Delaware, and summer will be here before you know it. Don’t wait until the heat waves roll in to get your air conditioner ready for summer. From changing the air filter to tidying up the outdoor unit, follow these four steps for preparing your HVAC system for warm weather.

Change the Air Filter

Before you switch on your air conditioner for the summer, be sure to change the air filter. Mark your calendar to make sure you continue to replace the filter every 30 days throughout the summer. By changing the filter more often than usual, you’ll help keep your HVAC system running efficiently as the weather heats up outside.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

Late spring and early summer are also ideal times to call the Griffith Energy Services team for HVAC maintenance. We’ll inspect your air conditioner or heat pump thoroughly, testing and recalibrating the system as necessary and look for minor issues that may escalate later in the season. After we give your cooling system a clean bill of health, you can look forward to staying cool and comfortable all summer.

Set the Thermostat

When you switch your HVAC system over to cooling mode, take care to update the settings on your thermostat, too. Set the base temperature to 78, and program the thermostat to raise the temperature by up to 10 degrees overnight or when the family is out during the day. With this type of cooling schedule, you’ll give your HVAC system a break and improve efficiency without compromising comfort.

Tidy Up the Outdoor Unit

Finally, head outside and clear all debris away from your HVAC system’s outdoor unit. Remove fallen leaves and twigs and trim grass or shrubs that have grown too close. Maintain a clear radius of at least 3 feet around the unit to ensure unobstructed airflow and efficient operation during the hot season ahead.

Don’t wait until summer is in full swing to get your cooling system ready for warm weather. Schedule HVAC maintenance with the Griffith Energy Services, Inc. team today at 888-474-3391.
