Is my AC system ready for the up and coming summer heat.


Determining whether your AC system is ready for the upcoming heat involves several factors. Here's a checklist to help you assess its readiness:

  1. Air Filter: Check and replace the air filter if it's dirty or clogged. A clean filter ensures proper airflow and efficiency.

  2. Thermostat: Test your thermostat to ensure it's functioning correctly. Consider upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat for better control and energy savings.

  3. Inspect Ductwork: Check for leaks, damage, or blockages in your ductwork. Sealing leaks and repairing any issues will improve efficiency and airflow.

  4. Outdoor Unit: Clear any debris, leaves, or obstructions from around the outdoor unit. Ensure it has adequate airflow for optimal performance.

  5. Inspect Coils: Clean the evaporator and condenser coils to remove dirt and debris, which can impede airflow and reduce efficiency.

  6. Refrigerant Levels: Check refrigerant levels and recharge if necessary. Low refrigerant can indicate a leak and may require professional attention.

  7. Inspect Electrical Components: Check electrical connections, wires, and components for signs of wear or damage. Ensure everything is secure and functioning correctly.

  8. Test Run: Turn on your AC system and let it run for a while to ensure it's cooling properly. Monitor for any unusual noises, odors, or performance issues.

  9. Schedule Maintenance: Consider scheduling professional maintenance for your AC system. A Yeti Cooling & Heating tune-up can identify and address potential issues before they become major problems.

  10. Consider Upgrades: If your AC system is old or inefficient, consider upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model. Newer systems offer better performance and energy savings.

By following this checklist and addressing any issues that arise, you can ensure that your AC system is ready to handle the upcoming heat and keep your home comfortable throughout the summer months. If you're unsure about any aspect of your AC system's readiness, don't hesitate to contact Yeti Cooling & Heating for assistance.
