ThinkstockPhotos-117900261Central air conditioning can be a lifesaver during brutal Tucson summers. Before the heat really hits, it is important to make sure your air conditioner is up to the challenge of the season. Keep reading for some tips that will help you prepare your air conditioner for the heavy usage of the summer.

Clear Off the Condenser

Leaves and other debris could be blocking your condenser from properly managing the temperature of the refrigerant that keeps your home cool. Take some time during the spring to go outside and look at the condenser. Clear off any of the debris that might be affecting the unit before it causes major problems.

Change the Filters

Changing the air filters inside of the unit help keep it functioning at its best. You should check on the filters at least once a month. If the filter is clogged, it is important to change it to avoid unnecessary maintenance issues that might affect the way the unit can cool your home. You should check the filters frequently, but you might only have to change them once every three months or so.

Get the Unit Checked

You should call a professional maintenance team to come to your home to check on the condition of your unit before you use it. They can look over all of the parts to make sure everything is functioning as it should. Yearly maintenance can prevent simple wear and tear issues that might keep you from getting the air conditioning that you need to make it through another Tucson summer.
