Spring is here! I tested my first air conditioner of the year on an inspection last week and it felt so good. Now might be a good time to check your unit too before the 90 degree weather gets here.
Check the outside unit and clear any leaves and vegetation away. Turn the unit on and let it run for 10-15 minutes. Go make sure the outdoor unit is running and doesn’t sound like a screaming banshee. If you pull back the black foam insulation on the large copper tube at either the indoor or outdoor unit, it should be nice and cold. If you measure the temperature at a supply register close to the unit, it should be about 15-20 degrees colder than at the return grill.
