Spring AC Maintenance Checklist


You’ve probably heard the saying, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” This idiom is supposed to illustrate that the month of March usually starts off with cold, inclement weather but that by the end of the month, the weather is supposed to be mild, like a lamb.

Well, whoever made that up obviously didn’t live in Georgia. We’ve already had some hot, humid days that haven’t felt mild at all. You’ve undoubtedly made the abrupt switch to using your air conditioner already and have likely neglected AC maintenance in Dublin, GA. That’s why we’ve created this checklist of spring AC maintenance so you can be sure your air conditioner will see you through what looks to be a hot, sweltering summer ahead.

Clear the indoor and outdoor units of debris

Add this to your list of spring cleaning tasks. Check the indoor and outdoor units to make sure they’re free and clear of debris. If you’ve put boxes, furniture, holiday ornaments, or any bulky items around the indoor unit, move them away. These can impede its performance. Check the outdoor unit to see if grass and weeds have grown around it. Also check it for branches, twigs, and any other type of debris.

Check and change (or clean) your AC filter

Putting a new, clean filter in place is an easy task homeowners can take care of that’ll make a world of difference in the AC’s performance. Start the cooling season off right by replacing the filter or giving a reusable one a thorough cleaning. This step helps your AC run efficiently and keeps dirt, dust, and debris from entering your AC’s complex, inner working parts. 

Check your HVAC vents for obstructions

Here’s another easy task that you can handle yourself. Check the vents around your home to make sure they’re open and unobstructed. You can also use this as an opportunity to wipe them down to clear them of dust. This simple step can have a big impact on the performance of your AC. You can also turn the AC on and check to make sure there aren’t any foul odors coming from the vents.

Schedule AC maintenance now

Maintenance is an essential service that ensures your AC will achieve peak performance over our sweltering, humid summers. Now is the perfect time to make that maintenance appointment before we start getting calls for repairs and replacements. 

Spring is also the best time to have maintenance done rather than later in the season, because that means your system is less likely to need repairs. Getting maintenance done now means avoiding downtime later on when you’re really going to be dependent on your AC to keep you comfortable.

Our team provides efficient and thorough air conditioner maintenance services that’ll keep your system running the way it is meant to. We check, test, and tune up every part of your system while keeping an eye out for any additional services that may need to be taken care of. Keep your AC working efficiently throughout the spring and summer by scheduling your service with Premier Heating & Air.
