Spring Is Here — Are You Ready?

Temperatures are on their way back up! It really felt like a short winter throughout the Lower Mainland this year. It’s great news for summer- minded folks — not so great for anyone who wanted more time on the slopes. Of course, as spring rapidly approaches, you know summer won’t be far behind. That means it’s time to start thinking about air conditioning! It’s one of our favourite subjects here at Lewis MacLean. I’ll be the first to admit that we do talk about it a lot. But we talk about air conditioning for good reason. As we get closer to summer (and as peak summer temperatures arrive), we get calls from a lot of folks who are having trouble with their air conditioning unit. Sometimes they turn it on only to be greeted by a blast of warm air. Other times, the A/C doesn’t turn on at all! We know how frustrating it is to be in these situations. You wonder if you’ll be able to keep your house cool. You wonder about the bill — will you have to get a new unit? Or will it be a quick fix? I can tell you, we’re here to ease your mind. It’s easy to forget about the A/C during the cooler months. It sits unused and you don’t really need to think about it. This is why we offer inspections and tuneups. We’re here to make sure your A/C doesn’t let you down. While peak summer is still several months away, right now is the perfect time to start thinking about your A/C. If anything is wrong, you can take care of it here and now. Then, when you really need it, it’ll be there for you.

When it comes down to it, the quickest and simplest way to make sure everything is in working order is to turn it on. Test it out and monitor the output. At the same time, check the air filter. If it hasn’t been changed in a while, it might be time. Here’s a tip: Every time you change the air filter, write the install date on the edge of the filter in permanent marker. Here are a few other quick tips to help get your A/C ready for warmer weather.

• Clean all debris away from your home’s A/C unit (dirt, grass, leaves, weeds, and other yard waste). • Give your A/C a quick wash with the garden hose to clear away any remaining dirt and debris.

• For central air systems, make sure ducts and registers are clear of dust and debris.

• Clean and dust the room where your central air system is located (make sure all vents are clear).

Lastly, give us a call to schedule an inspection and tuneup! Our tuneups ensure your system will work properly. It’s all about keeping your HVAC system working efficiently and effectively. That said, if there’s anything you need — whether it’s to schedule an A/C tuneup or a plumbing, heating, and drainage issue — we’re standing by the phone, 24/7, ready to take your call!
