Spring is just around the corner and that means you will soon be starting up your air conditioning units. But you have to keep in mind that you have not used this your air conditioner in several months and there are things that you should do before the hottest day of the year so far. At Medford Wellington Services, we have come up with a to-do list that you need to do before you start running your air conditioner.

Try it out

There is nothing worse than turning on your AC on a hot day only to find out that it is not working properly. Why not start it up now and make sure that is not only able to run but will also blow out cold air. If your air conditioning unit is not working properly, you have plenty of time to get the repairs you need.


By replacing your filters, you will help ensure good quality air coming out of your air conditioning. There are several filter options to choose from depending on your budget. You can get the type that needs to be replaced once a month or you can go with the option that allows you to replace it every three months.

Clean drainage hole

Most air conditioning units have a drainage hole at the bottom of the cabinet that needs to be cleaned at least every spring. If that hole is not kept clean, your air conditioning will not work properly. All you need to do is take a paperclip or small wire and poke it through the hole.

There are many more things that you should do in the coming months when it comes to your air conditioning. Call Medford Wellington Service to schedule an appointment today.
