Air conditioner spring check up!

Tips to ensure your system works this summer.

You'll soon be needing that air conditioner, so make sure it's working correctly.

Everyone in Alberta knows that our weather can be strange. Some days it may not FEEL like spring but summer will be here in no time! That being said, you should consider now as a great time to make sure your air conditioner is up to the task of keeping you cool, this year.

Here are some tips for things that you can do to make sure your HVAC unit will be working at it's best.

  • VENTS:
    If these vents are clogged and dirty, it will make your unit work harder than it should. To keep the a/c working efficiently, have a look at each vent and clear out anything that might be a problem. At the same time, make sure that all the vents are open.


    Some units have disposable filters, while others are permanent. If you have a disposable version, it's important to replace them often. Check with your installer or with the supplier to see how often this should be done. Other types of filters will require a cleaning about once a month. Checking the filter in the spring is an easy task that will ensure you're a/c will do the job when you need it.


    Go outside and have a look at the HVAC unit. Make sure there are no plants, branches or other debris that could interfere with the workings of the air conditioner. When the leaves fell last fall, they could get into the appliance. Ensure that these are removed so it can do it's job effectively.
