4.Time for a test run
Pick a nice, warm day to take your system on its first test run of the season. Turn on the AC and pay special attention to any noises and lingering smells. Check the temperature and see how long it takes for your home to cool down. If your system isn’t cooling, it’s time to contact a professional to see what the issue is.
5. Time to check out your outdoor unit
If you haven’t taken a peek at your outdoor unit in a while, now is the time. Just as air filters collect debris, your outdoor unit may have collected debris inside. Check for fallen branches, clear off the cobwebs and remove any covers you may use.
