Steps to prepare your air conditioner for spring

Steps to prepare your air conditioner for spring

Here are some steps to prepare your air conditioner for spring:
Clean or replace the air filter: A dirty air filter can reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner and increase your energy bills. So, start by cleaning or replacing the air filter. If you have a reusable filter, clean it with water and let it dry completely before reinstalling it. If you have a disposable filter, replace it with a new one.
Check the outdoor unit: Check the outdoor unit for any debris or obstructions. Clear away any leaves, twigs, or other debris that might have accumulated around the unit during the winter months. Make sure that there is at least two feet of clearance around the unit to ensure proper airflow.
Inspect the refrigerant lines: Check the refrigerant lines that run from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit for any signs of damage or wear. Look for cracks, leaks, or other signs of damage. If you notice any problems, contact a professional HVAC technician to inspect and repair the lines.
Test the air conditioner: Turn on the air conditioner and make sure it is working properly. Listen for any unusual noises, and check the airflow and temperature to ensure that everything is functioning as it should.
Schedule a professional maintenance appointment: Finally, consider scheduling a professional maintenance appointment with an HVAC technician. A professional technician can perform a thorough inspection of your air conditioning system, clean the coils, check the refrigerant levels, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments to ensure that your air conditioner is in top working condition for the summer months.
By following these steps, you can help ensure that your air conditioner is ready to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the spring and summer months.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
  • What are mini-split advantages?

    Just as the name implies, a “mini-split” system is a “split system” however available in smaller capacities, for single room to whole house conditioning. Mini-split systems may range from as small as 9,000 BTUh per hour, comparable to say, a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room By Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. With near universal design, mini-splits are “heat pumps” which provide both heating and cooling for a home. Here are key advantages when compared to traditional split systems:

    Efficiency- Mini-splits are highly engineered systems which offer attractive operating efficiencies, in many instances, eligible for utility company rebates.
    Heat Pump- Most mini-split systems are heat pumps, providing year-round comfort.
    Solar friendly- Due to very low power requirements, mini-splits are an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes, or any home using renewable power.
    Carbon footprint- Mini-splits are 100% electric, with zero operating emissions of any type.
    Zoning- Most mini-split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning”, to account for peak demands of a room based upon construction type, exposure orientation and usage.
    Variable capacity- Mini-splits are typically DC inverter driven. That is, a variable speed compressor which modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Most conventional split systems, by comparison, operate with an ON-OFF strategy. (Would you use an ON-OFF switch as the accelerator in your vehicle?)
    Location, Location, Location!- Mini-split outdoor units are compact; they can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas, such as bedrooms and home offices. Mini-split indoor units have the ability to be installed where conventional systems cannot.
    They’re perfect for additions and remodels where access to current HVAC system is difficult to access.
    Modern mini-split systems are remarkably quiet; in fact, many times their operation is unnoticed by the end user.
