With spring in progress and summer fast approaching, it’s time to prep all features of our lives for the toastier weather, and that involves our homes. It may not be time to utilize your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be considering how you will stay comfortable this season in Northglenn. The greatest way to make sure that you will have a comfortable summer is by switching on your system now, before it gets too humid and you find that you need air conditioner repairs. Here are a handful of pieces of advice to ensure your system, and your house, is ready for the heat:
Try it out now!
It really is better to give your system a test run as soon as you can. You don’t want your air conditioner to break down on the warmest day of the year and make your home unpleasant. Rather, setting your thermostat to its cooling mode and permitting it to run, even for a few minutes, will be an excellent trial run that can save you a lot of future problems. Confirm that cool air is blowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a couple of things to inspect before calling the pros at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.:
- Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a common mistake and one that is made often, but if you haven’t switched your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be running. Simple issue, simple solution!
- Check the unit outside. Double check to see if there are any blockages around your system, such as items or dirt, that can jam your air flow and cool air production.
- Change your filters. As always, this step is crucial to enhancing the work of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will produce an easier environment for air to flow through.
Once you’ve worked things out – your system is programmed to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t getting any cool air, it’s time to call in the professionals if there are issues. Annual air conditioner service should be on your radar this time of the year nonetheless, so now is the best time to check up on every aspect of your system before the summer hits. The professionals at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. will not only fix the current issue at hand, but they will also address any small possible future issues that could turn into bigger difficulties later.
Chances are that if your home isn’t cooling effortlessly, your system might be deficient in refrigerant based on low levels or even a leak.

Throughout an air conditioner maintenance check, our professionals can deal with any leaks in your lines or refrigerant shortages.
Everyone trusts their air conditioner to endure over the summer and it can be easy to overlook how important your system is to your summer comfort. Don’t agonize about your air conditioner shutting down and instead, be proactive about testing and servicing your system before the heat wave hits.
