Summer in Ohio can bring sweltering heat, making a well-functioning air conditioning system essential for comfort. Preparing your AC before the hottest days arrive can prevent unexpected breakdowns and ensure optimal performance. Here are some essential tips to get your AC ready for summer:


1. Replace the Air Filter

A clean air filter is crucial for efficient cooling. Replace your filter to ensure proper airflow and reduce strain on your system. Aim to check and replace it every one to three months, depending on usage.


2. Clean the Outdoor Unit

Over the fall and winter, debris, leaves, and dirt can accumulate around the outdoor unit. Clear away any debris and gently hose down the unit to remove dust and grime from the coils. This helps improve efficiency and cooling capacity.


3. Check the Thermostat

Test your thermostat to ensure it’s functioning correctly. If you have an older model, consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat for better energy management and efficiency.


4. Inspect and Seal Ductwork

Leaky ducts can lead to significant energy loss and uneven cooling. Inspect your ductwork for leaks, holes, or disconnected sections, and seal them with appropriate materials. This will ensure cool air reaches every part of your home.


5. Test the System

Run your AC for a short period to ensure it starts up and runs smoothly. Listen for any unusual noises and check if it’s cooling effectively. This test can help you identify issues early.


6. Schedule a Professional Tune-Up
