Summer may seem like it’s a long time off away. But before you realize, you’ll be moving from heating to cooling. Soon enough your air conditioner is cooling regularly to maintain cool temperatures. It’s smart to be ready for the extra usage before temperatures heat up.
Comfortech Service Experts and our team of Experts can provide support. We’ve created our all-inclusive air conditioning memberships to boost your system’s energy efficiency and dependability. Our professional skill goes a long way, but there are a lot of other tasks you can do to protect your air conditioner. Here are four of the best ways you can prep for air conditioning season.
Don’t be concerned, you won’t have to dismantle your system and clean every component. Our Experts handle this during your yearly air conditioning maintenance appointment.
But cleaning the space around your air conditioner will go a long way as well. We recommend:
If your air conditioner’s fins get blocked by dirt or yard refuse, this can affect performance and comfort. Your air conditioner will have to run longer to provide the same level of comfort. In bad cases, it may stop cooling altogether and need air conditioning repair.
Your comfort and satisfaction matter to us, so we prefer minimizing the likelihood of repairs in the first place. A well-maintained air conditioner usually operates more efficiently, is less likely to break down and typically lasts longer.
Frequently replacing your air filter is critical for your air conditioner’s well-being. During a maintenance visit, our techs check filters and install new ones if necessary. Putting in a new filter is quick and straightforward. You can (and should) do it on your own whenever!
How frequently you need to get a new filter depends on:
Basic flat filters normally last for 30–60 days. Deeper pleated filters can last up to 90 days. If you’re not sure if your filter should be replaced, take it out, and angle it toward the light. Put in a new one if you can’t see light through it.
Filters trap dust, pollen and other pollutants from your house’s air, keeping airflow healthy. Disregarding it will impact your house’s indoor air quality and your air conditioner’s efficiency.
In some situations a dirty filter could even damage your system or cause it to malfunction. Often replacing it will keep the inside of your air conditioner cleaner and airflow more level.
If someone in your household has allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems, check with our Experts about how a HEPA filter can relieve symptoms.
Now is the perfect time to check other important parts of your air conditioner and other safety systems.
If you use a programmable thermostat, ensure that it’s working like it should. If the batteries are running out, change them.
For added control and convenience, think over installing a smart thermostat. They make conserving energy simpler. And a few models can even notify you if there’s an issue with your air conditioner or if your air filter needs replacing.
Although they’re not part of your air conditioning system, now is a good time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Confirming they still have juice gives peace of mind and an added layer of protection.
One of the best ways to boost energy-efficient cooling is to reduce the concentration of outside heat seeping into your house. Using good window treatments like blackout curtains, honeycomb shades or plantation shutters, can stop the sun from impacting your home’s temperatures.
Here are a couple other methods to keep your house cold without turning down the thermostat:
