5 Simple Air Conditioner Spring Cleaning TipsWithout a doubt, air conditioners are the key to maintaining comfort during those warm and sometimes scorching periods in the summer.

But neglecting your AC until summer fully hits can be a costly mistake. Without regular air conditioner maintenance, this can result in malfunctions and poor performance overall.

To ensure that your AC unit is running optimally and efficiently, here are five simple air conditioner spring cleaning tips that will save you time and money down the road:

1. Remove debris

A clean AC unit will function as intended. Turn off the power before you begin the cleaning process. Remove any debris from inside the unit and around the fan cage. You can either do this with your hand or with a vacuum.

2. Remove foliage

Trim all weeds and grass that have grown up around the unit. Rake up autumn leaves that may have accumulated since last year. Look inside the metal housing. If you see any debris inside, remove it as needed.

3. Clean the fins

Using light pressure, spray through the outside of the unit with a garden hose. Pay special attention to the angle and pressure of the water. Avoid using a pressure washer, which can damage the fins. If the fins are particularly dirty, consider using a specialized cleaning spray.

4. Replace the filter

If you haven’t replaced or cleaned your AC filter since last year, do so before spring operation. An obscured and clogged air filter can cause serious problems for your AC unit and reduce its efficiency.

5. Talk to a professional

Above all, scheduling an annual AC tune-up with Pronto is your key to an easy and carefree summer, since our trained technicians can fix any unseen problems and prevent future issues from arising. Schedule your same-day appointment with us today!
