( — May 5, 2015) Sandy, UT — It appears that winter is on its way out of the Beehive State. Warmer days are here, and that means many will be looking to cool down their homes as temperatures continue to rise.

Comfort Solutions wants to make sure your air conditioning units are in top-notch condition and functioning properly, which will keep costs lower and your family comfortable.

Follow these 5 essential tips to get your air conditioning units in good condition and avoid expensive service calls:

1. Get a Tune Up: Energy Star companies recommend a tune-up twice a year—Once in the fall, before heat is required, and once in the spring right before the A/C is turned on for full-time cooling.
2. Change Your Filter: Filter maintenance is a year round project, so it should certainly be on your spring   checklist. Dirty air filters drain the efficiency of your unit, leading to failure of your A/C. Change the filter every 90 days, but check it monthly
3. Remove Debris From A/C Unit: Be sure to clean twigs, leaves, pollen, and other debris from the outside of your cooling unit. Don’t allow lawn mower trimmings to pile up around it.
4. Inspect Ducts, Blower, and Coils for any Obstruction: Obstructions can prevent proper cooling of your home by causing the air to blow unevenly or not at all. Make sure all the ducts are clear of foreign objects.
5. Check for Cracks and Damage: Inspect the insulation on refrigerant lines leading into the house and replace if it is missing or damaged. Also look for cracks or broken sealants around the A/C system.

The best way to avoid expensive repair is through regular maintenance. Taking care of your A/C unit by following these 5 steps will help it to run efficiently for years to come.
