With Winter Over, Make a Smooth Transition to Cooling

March 17, 2020 | Blog

Transitioning to cooling after winter is done doesn’t have to be difficult, but it’s important that you take the initiative to make sure that everything goes smoothly. We’d like to get you started with these simple steps that will help you prepare:

1. Schedule Annual AC Maintenance

The first step you’ll want to take is to contact a qualified HVAC technician to perform an annual checkup of your system. They will check out the entire unit, make necessary tweaks, and identify any potential problems. In addition to improving the unit’s performance, this will also help extend the overall life span of the equipment.

2. Open the Windows Instead

You might be inclined to reach for the thermostat as soon as the weather begins to heat up each day, but consider opening the windows instead. This can help cool off your home in the days before the weather gets too hot.

3. Never Neglect the Air Filter

Very often, a air conditioning unit’s filter will get clogged up with debris, but it will go unnoticed. This will cause the equipment to not run as efficiently, so make sure that you check the filter each month and either clean it or replace it whenever it’s dirty.

4. Switch to a Smart Thermostat

Whether your home still uses a manual thermostat or you’ve already upgraded to a programmable model, there’s always a better version out there. Switching to a smart thermostat will allow you to have Wi-Fi access, receive weather supports, and provide you with other advanced options.

5. Change the Ceiling Fan’s Direction

Once the weather starts heating up, you want your ceiling fan to push the air down instead of pulling it up so that it can help with the cooling of your home. You can accomplish this by hitting the little switch on the side of the fan, which will change it to a counterclockwise direction.

Transitioning to cooling this season will be a lot easier if you perform the simple tasks listed above. For more assistance, reach out to the friendly professionals at CCAC. We’ve been serving the HVAC needs of the Coastal Bend and the surrounding areas for more than 40 years.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
