Ready or not, summer’s blistering heat is here and it will only get hotter! Right now is the time to check up on your air conditioner before it’s too late. Making sure your cooling system is in tip-top shape is more work than just switching it on at the first sign of summer. Today, we’re going to break down some of the things that need to get checked on and potentially done to ensure a cool and comfortable season for your household.
Filter it All Out
Keeping your air clean is just as important as keeping it cool. Your AC unit’s filter is one of the first parts to check on before summer heats up even more. Some systems utilize disposable filters, while others have more permanent setups. Regardless of which one you have, it is critical to change or thoroughly clean your filter at least once every month.
If you’re not sure how to figure out your unit’s filtration system, we’re here to help! We offer air conditioner maintenance throughout the Cayman Islands.
Clear the Vents
Air conditioning only works at its best when the airflow is unobstructed, so don’t forget about your ventilation system. Now is the time to move that furniture covering your vents so the cold air can flow seamlessly through the entire space. Clearing dust or debris build-up in your vents is just as important in getting that blast of cool air you’ll need this summer.
Is it Working Okay?
Sometimes, when not utilized or looked after consistently, air conditioners can start deteriorating. Odd odors, disrupted airflow, abnormal sounds, and other signs point to a mechanical issue within the system. Thankfully, we offer AC tune-up services throughout the Cayman Islands so give us a call and we can identify the problem and fix it as soon as possible.
Consider a Replacement
As with all appliances, air conditioners eventually reach a point where they no longer work efficiently. In these cases, it might be best to replace the entire unit rather than fork out extensive amounts of money into costly repairs. Our professionals at Polar Bear Air Conditioning will be able to diagnose what is truly making your air conditioner faulty and help you decide on the most effective replacement options for your situation and your budget.
