Helpful HVAC Hints To Kickstart Your Summer
The summer is upon us and having your HVAC system working at its prime performance is the only way to stay cool in these next few scorching and humid months. It’s important to check your air conditioning unit to make sure it will make it through the summer. These helpful housekeeping tips can allow your system to run smoothly, saving you lots of money in the future.
Check Your HVAC Operation
With your air conditioning system being dormant for such a long period of time, the best way to find out if there are any problems is to simply turn it on. Be aware of any unusual noises from the fan or system itself. Once on, wait about an hour or two after the thermostat is set to a specific degree. Check to see that the temperature in your home is cooling, arriving at your set degree.
Check Your Air Filter
If your air conditioner is not keeping your home cool, it may be caused by a blockage in the air filter. If the filter is clogged by dirt and debris, it might be time to change it before the upcoming season. Changing your filter is never a bad idea and may help to keep your HVAC system working effortlessly, keeping your energy bills at a lower cost!
Clean The System
To steer clear from future problems, the condenser coil needs to be cleaned and maintained regularly. If the condenser coil becomes too dirty, air will not be able to travel to the evaporator coil and cool your home properly. This causes your air conditioner to work much harder than it needs to, shortening its lifespan. Be sure to check the cleanliness of the coils before starting up your unit for the hot weather.
Check The Lines
The best way for your HVAC to work at its peak performance is to check that the refrigerant lines are working properly. The refrigerant system is a continuous cycle, and it is important that these lines are always fully insulated with black rubbery foam to help avoid cool air from escaping. If you happen to find that your lines need repairs, please contact one of our trusted professionals today.
Sustain Regular Maintenance
To ensure that your HVAC system will run smoothly throughout the summer, be sure to maintain it by regularly scheduling an appointment with a licensed and trusted professional from Van Natta. By having your HVAC checked and up to speed before the season reaches its peak, you can save an excess of money and time waiting, as appointments tend to fill up quickly!
Save Costs And Preserve Energy
Remember to turn your air conditioner up a few degrees before leaving the house for the day. Energy and air conditioning bills can rack up quickly in the excruciating summer weather. If you leave your air conditioning on all day at a low temperature, you can spend hundreds of extra dollars cooling your home all summer.
