Remove your Condenser Covers
AC covers are common in the cooler months and help save the units from debris like ice or leaves. Make sure you remember to check for a cover before starting up a unit. You don’t want to risk damaging your system.
Checking for a cover you can also take care of any excess grass, leaves and other debris. If you don't, there is a chance it can get caught in the condenser coils. If you want to be sure, you can also spray the outside of the unite for any dust or dirt that might have been built up.
Conduct a Thermostat Test for Your Unit
The next thing on Beam’s summer checklist for HVAC is performing a thermostat test. Make sure to test the thermostat by turning on and off, running through a heating or cooling cycle and other controls. If working properly, your house should cool and heat at the proper temperatures.
Clear your HVAC Vents of Any Furniture
It is important that nothing is blocking your vents when the system is on. You should check for rugs, furniture and other obstructions that might be blocking the proper flow. If you want to go one step further, then pull up a grate and make sure to clean off any dust. This will also ensure that that your vent’s are open and properly on to direct air flow.
Change Your HVAC Filter
Make sure to change out the condenser filter. The general guide says that it needs to change at the very least 90 days. If you haven’t checked since Winter your check is overdue. If you have a few pets or suffer allergies, then make sure that you clear your filters at least every 60 days or sooner. It will help provide a better air quality for the house.
