This has been a scorching hot summer.
Of course, all summers out here are.
Don’t get me wrong though, I love the summertime. But, I take a lot of steps to get ready for summer in order to make sure myself and my home are comfortable. One thing I do is to make sure my air conditioner is tuned up and ready no later than spring. In the spring, it’s already hot enough to start turning the air conditioner on and that’s when I hire air conditioner technicians to come out and take a look and make sure my air conditioner is in good working order for the season ahead. The technician inspects the air conditioning equipment and makes sure that the outdoor air conditioner condenser it’s in good shape too. They also clean everything. It’s critical that the air conditioner condenser is not full of debris. If it is, you’re going to have an air conditioner that is really struggling in the summer heat. This can cause it to overheat and it will also definitely make your energy bill go really high. If you can’t afford to hire a professional air conditioner technician, at least make sure to clean the outdoor condenser unit yourself. You can do this by shutting off the power, removing the top and then wiping down the blades and removing any debris that might be inside. Be careful not to bend any of the blades. Then go ahead and change the air filter and make sure there is no debris in the inside component either.
