Here in Connecticut, hot weather is still a ways off. Don’t let our relatively chilly spring weather trick you into thinking that you don’t have to prepare for the summer season yet, though. When summer does arrive, it just may sneak up on you a bit earlier than you expected. The heat of summer may be a welcome change of pace after our long, hard winter season has passed, but you are not really going to be able to enjoy summer to the fullest if you fail to get your air conditioner ready for the season.
Now, there are definitely some very basic maintenance tasks that you can and should handle for yourself. For instance, it is important that you change the air filter in your air conditioning system as needed. Generally, that is going to be every 1-3 months. It is also a good idea to remove snow and other debris from your condenser unit outside, and to keep the area surrounding the unit clear. There is a lot more to AC maintenance than this, though, and most of it requires the skill and expertise of a trained professional.

As we mentioned above, the bulk of your air conditioner’s maintenance needs are only going to be met by trained, experienced professionals. In fact, most homeowners may not even realize just how involved a process air conditioning maintenance really is.
