How To Wake Your Air Conditioner From Winter Hibernation
Your San Antonio area home’s air conditioner has been sitting dormant all winter. Soon, it will be ready to wake up and roar once again, just like a hibernating bear. When it wakes from its long slumber, your air conditioner is going to have a few kinks to work out. Air conditioning systems and bears have a lot more in common than you might think. Here’s why you need to tame your air conditioner before it has a chance to turn into a scary beast.
Feed That AC Bear
Your bear . . . or air conditioner, can sometimes act grumpy in the spring the first time it is turned on. Usually it’s because it is either dirty or hungry. For an air conditioner, if it’s hungry that means it is likely low on refrigerant. If it is low on coolant, this could be an indicator of other issues like a leaking air conditioner or indoor coil. An air conditioning system tune-up can help identify whether your system has plenty of coolant. If it doesn’t, this issue can be discovered before it becomes a real problem.
Clean That Dirty Bear
Since your air conditioner has been lying dormant all winter, it’s probably accumulated lots of dust and dirt in many of its nooks and crannies. Help your air conditioner shed its winter coat, and freshen up with an air conditioner tune-up from Tiger Services. Our technicians really know how to refresh your system by giving it a thorough cleaning. When an air conditioner has dirty coils, it has to work harder to operate, which decreases efficiency and may lead to earlier breakdowns. Air conditioners that don’t get a spring cleaning can act like an angry bear, tearing up your utility bills and leaving you hot and bothered.
