Warm weather is already upon us in Oklahoma, and soon summer will arrive in full force. Is your air conditioning system ready to keep your home cool and dry?

Pippin Brothers is here to help get your central AC or ductless mini split AC ready so that you can stay comfortable and avoid AC breakdowns. Follow these steps to prepare your cooling system for hot weather: 

- Take Your AC for a Test Drive 

If you haven’t turned your AC on yet, make sure you do so soon. Our air conditioners tend to sit idle during the winter months and problems may have arisen that you won’t notice until you turn it on. If you wait until you really need your AC to turn it on for the first time, you could be met with a serious problem that takes a long time to fix, leaving your family hot and uncomfortable. 

Instead, take your AC for a test drive ASAP. Turn it on and let it run for a few hours. Make sure it's cooling and dehumidifying your home effectively and be on the lookout for strange AC sounds and smells. If you notice any concerning signs, give Pippin Brothers a call to schedule air conditioner maintenance or repairs

- Clean Your Air Filters 

In order for your AC to cool and dehumidify your home effectively during the hot summer months, its air filters need to be clean. When your air filters are clogged, it’s harder for the cool air from your AC to pass through them. This can make your home less comfortable and drive up your energy bills. Dirty air filters are also less effective at filtering out indoor air contaminants, leading to poor indoor air quality

You can clean or replace your air filters yourself, or let Pippin Brothers take care of it during your routine AC maintenance visit. 

- Schedule Air Conditioner Maintenance

AC maintenance is crucial here in Oklahoma, where our AC systems get a lot of use. Air conditioner maintenance is worth the investment and will lead to benefits like: 

  • A more comfortable home 

  • Less risk of costly emergency AC breakdowns 

  • Healthier indoor air quality 

  • Better energy efficiency and low energy bills

  • Longer AC system lifespan 

Wondering how often you should have AC comfort and performance maintenance? Once a year is ideal. By having a precision tune-up and professional cleaning of your air conditioner every year, you can keep it in excellent condition so that your family can stay cool, dry, and comfortable all summer long. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your AC isn’t going to break down on the hottest night of the year, and you’ll be able to avoid the hassle and expense of emergency AC repair.
