Cooling your home is important to your health and wellness. If the air conditioner is not cooling properly, make sure to contact us. In your home, the air conditioner is an important feature, especially during the hot summer months. Even if it is properly maintained and inspected, accidents and unexpected issues can happen. Always make sure to contact us at the first sign of them, as they will become worse with time. One issue is if the air conditioner is no longer operating like it used to, or is not blowing out cold air. It may be blowing cool air, but not the typical cold air that it usually does. If this is a common occurrence, make sure to call us so we can come inspect and repair it for you. This will help keep you cool and comfortable on those hot summer days.
How the Filter helps Cooling
The most important thing and first thing to check is the filter of the air conditioner. Filters will capture and collect dust and dirt that are in the air of the home. Over time, they will become clogged with this. The result is the air is not able to pass through them as efficiently as they otherwise should. It will lead to the air conditioner needing to work harder and sometimes longer in order to produce the cool air. Even then, you may notice the system is not blowing out the cold air it typically does. So always remember to replace the filter based on the recommended schedule.
The outdoor air conditioner can have issues with it as well. If there is landscape around it, the airflow may not be as ideal for it. Also make sure that it is free of debris like leaves, branches, or anything else that is too close. If there is not proper airflow, then it cannot cool down. Also the interior may have bent or broke fins as it operates. This should always be done by a trained professional. Having the outdoor unit clear of debris will help your home remain cool and comfortable this summer.
