Preparing Your AC for the Summer Months
The summer heat can be unforgiving. However, a well-cared-for AC unit can help combat that. We understand that keeping up with your unit can be tiring, which is why we only employ the best in the business to help serve you. There is a wide range of consequences that could come from neglecting the outdoor unit.
Bills for cleaning and replacing the unit can be pricey, not to mention, the condition of your outdoor unit can affect how the AC runs inside of the house. Here are other essential factors to keep in mind regarding your AC unit:
Keep Your Windows and Doors Closed
Believe it or not, your AC unit is not made to withstand extreme heat conditions. Thus, as a homeowner, one of the best things you can do to help your AC run correctly is to keep all of your windows and doors closed in the summer. This will allow your AC unit to keep the temperature inside of the home regulated, and you won’t be losing fresh air to the outside world.
Ignoring Your Air Filter
A common occurrence within the profession is people forgetting to change their air filters. The air filter is an essential component in the quality of the air your home has. Its function is to capture allergens, dirt and other small particles in your vents so that by the time it gets to you, it is clean and breathable. Dirt and dust that gets trapped behind that filter can prohibit the flow and quality of air. In conclusion, a simple filter change, along with the maintenance of your outdoor unit, could make a huge difference.
Having Your Fan On
Your fan will keep cool air circulating throughout the house, which helps keep temperatures low. If you maintain lower temperatures within the home, it will help your AC unit. Therefore, we always suggest keeping the fan on. Using the fan will save you money and give you peace-of-mind when it gets hot.
