Get your AC ready for another hot Okanagan summer

Summer is approaching, and it could be another scorcher. Is your air conditioner ready? BlackJack HVAC Ltd. in Kelowna shares some air conditioner maintenance tips to ensure your home is cool and comfortable this summer.

Check the air filters

Changing or cleaning the air filter is one of the easiest things a homeowner can do to improve the efficiency and longevity of their AC. If you’re unsure which filter to use, check with the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific system. Check your filters monthly throughout the cooling season. Dust, pet hair, and other debris can quickly clog the system. If you’re unsure what filter to use or how to change the air filter, give BlackJack HVAC a call!

Clear debris from the outdoor unit

Be sure to clear debris like leaves, twigs, grass clippings and dirt from your outside air conditioner unit. A buildup of debris can restrict airflow and deter performance and efficiency. In addition, trim back any plants or bushes around the AC so they don’t interfere with airflow.

Check the coils

The evaporator and condenser coils can get dirty over time. The outdoor condenser coils can also become dirty. Cleaning them off will ensure good airflow and heat absorption. If the coils can’t absorb heat, they can’t cool the air!

The fins on the coils can also get bent and block the air from flowing freely. If you think yours are bent or not working correctly, book a service appointment with BlackJack HVAC. They can carefully straighten them without causing damage to the unit.

Book a maintenance appointment

BlackJack HVAC Ltd. can run a multi-point inspection on your HVAC system to ensure it’s ready to cool your home efficiently all summer long. They’ll check for damage and issues and make repairs as necessary.

They can also tell you if your air conditioner is coming near the end of its lifespan. If a replacement is inevitable, it’s best to get that done now before the heat of the summer. Once the heat moves in, booking an appointment for a replacement might be more challenging. So, ensure your home comfort this season by preparing now.
