10 Things To Do Before You Turn On Your Air Conditioner

a/c summer ready new jersey

Believe it or not, summer is just a few weeks away – and with us spending as much time indoors as we will be in the weeks ahead here in New Jersey, it’s important to make sure your air conditioner is ready for action.

Here are 10 simple steps you can take to inspect the different parts of your system to be sure your air conditioning will work when you need it (of course, the best way to do that is to schedule routine air conditioning maintenance with our cooling system experts – contact us today to schedule an appointment).

Pre-flight checklist for your cooling system

Start with your thermostat in the “off” position, with the temperature set to 80 degrees.


Once you run through this checklist, turn on your air conditioner for 10 to 15 minutes, looking for any obvious problems (strange sounds or smells, for example) with your indoor or outdoor units before shutting down. If you notice a problem, contact us for air conditioner service in NJ.

For air conditioner service and expert cooling system installations in NJ, nobody beats the pros at JW Pierson Co. Our licensed, insured technicians work quickly and neatly, installing, repairing, or maintaining your air conditioner the right way the first time.

Contact us today to schedule an air conditioning tune-up, or to request a FREE, no obligation estimate on a high efficiency A/C upgrade for your northern New Jersey home.

Please note: Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, we expect a surge in cooling system service and installation calls that could back up technicians for weeks. Lock in an appointment time now so you’ll be early on the list. And remember: at JW Pierson, your safety and comfort are always our priority.
