Check Your Virginia Beach Air Conditioning for Spring


With spring on the way, this is a good time to have your air conditioner checked. While there have been some mild winter days in Virginia Beach, it has not been uncomfortably hot. To see whether your air conditioner is ready for the warmest weather yet to come, do a preliminary check, then call a reliable air conditioning company for any routine maintenance or repairs.

How to Make Sure Your AC is Still in Good Condition

If you have a central air conditioning unit outside, start by going out to check on it. Put on a pair of work gloves or gardening gloves, just in case. If you keep a soft winter cover on it to protect the unit from the snow, sleet and rain, this is a good time to remove it. Be on the lookout for insects and other pests as you take it off the unit. Otherwise, check the air conditioner to make sure it is still intact and take away any leaves or storm debris that may have fallen on it over the winter. This is also a good time to check the filter. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions in the owner’s manual on what type to use and how often to clean it or change it.

Does Your Air Conditioner Need Repair?

If everything appears to be in order, turn on your air conditioner for a short test run. Allow it to run for a few minutes until the air is cold. If it continues to blow warm air, you will need to call a professional a/c repair company. The mechanic will first test the system for leaks before adding any refrigerant.
