How to Prepare Your AC System for Spring

It’s time to bid adieu to the cold season, and say hello to the warm months ahead, which includes air conditioning tips, of course!

And spring comes, promising not only sunny days but blooming foliage that symbolize a substantial change in our home comfort needs.

This is the time most switch over from the heater to the air conditioner. But is your AC ready to take over and keep you cool and comfortable?

Your friends at Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing are here to make your jump into spring efficient and easy. Here are a few steps to get your AC system ready for the oncoming spring season.

Welcoming Spring: AC Preparation Guide

There is more to transitioning from winter into spring than just changing your thermostat settings. The central air conditioning system that lays dormant throughout the cold season needs to be woken up. Here is a guide on how to wake up your sleepy unit.

Professional Inspection: A Springtime Essential

With the goodbyes of the winter chills and the hellos of spring heat, just like we change up our wardrobe, your home air conditioner needs an adjustment too. After a few months of sitting idly, your air conditioning system may not only have warmed up from winter dormancy but could also have accumulated dust, rust, or even become a temporary residence for critters.

Now is the time to shake off all the problems that took home in your system during the cold months, and what better way than with a comprehensive professional inspection.

Imagine your AC to be a hibernating bear.

Just as the bear needs a moment to get its bearings before it can leap into action, your AC needs a professional once-over to ensure it’s ready to spring back to life, providing the cooling comfort you expect.

During a professional inspection, the technician doesn’t just take a cursory look. They head deep into your air conditioning system, looking for signs of wear and tear that could have occurred over the winter months. They look for:

  • Rust that could be eating away at your system’s components,
  • Dirt and debris that could be clogging up the works, and
  • Any other damage that critters might have caused while looking for winter shelter.

But it’s not all about fixing what’s already wrong. This inspection is also about preemptive strikes—catching issues before they become full-blown problems.

Our professional Goettl technicians look for subtle signals that might spell trouble for your AC. With their expertise, they can identify and correct impending problems to get your system ready for spring and summer demands.

And having this important check-up scheduled is one sure-shot step to make sure your AC is ready for the hot months. Call Goettl today to give your system the care it needs to perform.

The Ripple Effect of Maintenance: Fewer Repairs, Greater Efficiency

Regular AC maintenance should be likened to making a visit to the doctor for a checkup when one feels okay. It’s not about catching the cold before it gets bad, but about maintaining your overall health at top condition.

Similarly, giving your air conditioning system its due care before any problem arises is much more than avoiding sudden breakdowns. It’s being proactive, so it works in its best possible form for the longest possible time.

If ignored or taken lightly, these minor problems with your air conditioner don’t just go away. Generally, they will grow, some to be huge and very costly problems. It’s like that tiny leak in a dam—if it’s not fixed promptly, it could lead to a flood.

That’s just the reason why our Goettl-exclusive Rejuuuvenation® maintenance service is so thorough. We perform six critical checks to get deep into your system—hitting those little issues before they become something that could shut your cooling system down or require major repairs.

Apart from preventing disasters, regular maintenance also has a positive domino effect on your system’s efficiency. Think about it: if your AC is running smoothly without any hitches, it doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain an optimal temperature throughout your home.

This not only ensures that you’re getting effective and consistent cooling but also translates to lower energy bills. It’s like ensuring your car’s engine is tuned and tires are inflated to the right pressure; it just runs better and uses less fuel.

This proactive care approach means your AC system can breathe easier, and so can you, knowing that you’re saving money in the long run. You’re not forcing your system to run on overdrive, which not only keeps your energy bills in check but also contributes to the longevity of your AC.

The Path to Enhanced AC Efficiency

When we talk about the efficiency of your air conditioning system, really, we’re talking about how your air conditioning system can give you the greatest degree of comfort for the least amount of money in energy.

Over time, small issues, like a slight rattling noise or a filter a bit too full of dust, can start to drag down your AC’s performance. They may seem minor, but they push your system to overwork, raising energy bills and dropping comfort.

That’s where Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing comes in. Our services are designed to fix what’s broken and tune your system to peak performance. We make it into the details to take care of those small but impactful issues.

Additional Spring Readiness Air Conditioning Tips

As we gear up for warmer weather, here are some additional steps you can take to ensure your AC system is in top form for spring:

  • Filter Check: The air filter is your AC’s first line of defense against dust and dirt. A clogged filter can hinder airflow, reducing efficiency and air quality. Regularly checking and changing your filter is a simple yet effective way to keep your system running smoothly.
  • Clear the Surroundings: The outdoor unit of your AC needs breathing room to operate efficiently. Make sure it’s free from leaves, branches, and debris that could block airflow. A clear space helps your system breathe easier and cool more effectively.
  • Thermostat Update: Technology has come a long way, and so have thermostats. Upgrading to a programmable or smart thermostat can give you greater control over your cooling, allowing you to set temperatures based on your schedule. This not only enhances comfort but can also lead to significant energy savings.
  • Duct Inspection: Your ductwork is the highway of cool air through your home. Any leaks or damage can lead to lost air and reduced efficiency. Having your ducts inspected can ensure that cool air gets where it needs to go without unnecessary loss.

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.
