Are You Ready for Monsoon Season?

June 21st, 2017

 

The Tucson Monsoon season is right around the corner. Here is how how you can keep your air conditioning system running effectively in spite of the rain, lighting, wind and dust of the reason.

Change your filters once a month during monsoon season. It’s the best course of action to combat all the dust that is kicked up. Changing your filter is also one of the easiest and most cost effective things you can do to ensure a long, efficient life of your air conditioning system.

Did you know that your air conditioning unit is in danger whenever there’s a lightning strike nearby? An electrical surge or strike in your area can impact your system. Your best bet to keep your system safe is to invest in a surge protector. The surge protector absorbs the electric surge before it can even get to your A/C unit.

Keep your air conditioning unit free of debris. Check the area around your unit periodically, especially after a monsoon, to clear away the debris. This keeps your system working more efficiently.

Take proactive measures to protect your AC system. Remember to turn your AC unit off when a monsoon storm hits near your home. Also, keep a tarp in an easy to access location so you can cover your outdoor AC unit before the storm hits. Keep bungee cords nearby so you can securely fasten the tarp to the top of the AC system.
