Should we service our air conditioning system before the onset of hot weather?

April 11th, 2022

Spring is just around the corner and we are already dreaming of the beautiful, long, hot days of summer. At the same time, we look in the direction of our air conditioner, wondering if we should service our air conditioning system before the warm weather arrives. Indeed, an air-conditioning system kept in good condition will work much better and the good news is that you can perform several simple tasks yourself to maintain it. The following article will give you information on this subject so that you can count on your air conditioning system to cool you down once the heat wave has taken hold of your home.

Why should you maintain your air conditioner?

It is important to emphasize that preventive maintenance is very important. It helps to make your device efficient, to save your energy and money and at the same time, it sees its lifespan extended. In addition, the air is healthier since bacteria are eliminated.

Above all things!

There is a wide range of air conditioners. Regardless of the model you have, you must, first of all, consult the user manual that you received upon purchase to learn the specific actions to take in terms of maintenance and the general instructions for your device. Then switch off the device! It is often enough to unplug it, but for central air conditioners, you have to cut the power directly at the electrical box or even disengage the circuit breaker connected to it.


For an air conditioner, changing the filter (in the case of disposable filters) or cleaning them (in the case of reusable filters) is a step not to be taken lightly. Clean the reusable filters with mild soap and lukewarm water, then rinse them and make sure they are completely dry before reinstalling them. If you have disposable filters instead, it’s a matter of replacing them (trust the instructions to find the optimal frequency). If you have a room air conditioner or a central unit without ducts, remember to clean the grille of the box that covers the filters and to ensure that nothing obstructs the diffusion of the air. If after starting you detect a strange smell reminding you of mould, it is better to call in the professionals. If indeed mould has set in during the long winter months, a professional cleaning of the condenser and the evaporator will have to be carried out. This is very important since it is a question of air quality and the impact on your health and that of your family.

If you are wondering about the right steps to take regarding the maintenance of your air-conditioning system, do not hesitate to contact professionals who will be able to answer your questions and come on site if necessary. You will then be assured that your air conditioner will be at the top of its performance to face the heat that always ends up arriving.
