Home Care for your AC

You will want to make sure that the air conditioner in your home is operating and functioning properly. This will help to ensure that your home is cool and comfortable this summer during the hotter months. If you are unsure if the system needs to be inspected, it is always best to have it looked at right before the summer. Make sure to contact us and we can check the entire system for you. This will help you to have an efficient system when you need it to operate this summer

Keep Air Moving in your Home

Always make sure to clear away any debris from an exterior part of the air conditioner. Have brush, leaves, sticks, and any other build up of debris removed from around the unit. This will help the air conditioner to run efficiently, by allowing proper air circulation through the unit. If there is a build up of debris, then it will not run, as it otherwise should be. Remember that you should inspect it for any other debris like bird nests or dead inspects.

Check the Filter

You should also remember to check the filter on the system as well. Doing so will help to keep the air in the best condition of your home as well. The filter is designed to capture and collect any dirt and dust that are in the air of your home. When it is recommended, make sure that you clean and change the filter in the system. This allows the best airflow to go through the system. When the filter is clogged, it will have more strain against the parts as it tries to circulate the air through. If you are not sure when the filter should be changed, make sure to contact us. Depending on your home, lifestyle, and pets, the filter may need to be changed on a more frequent basis.

If there is any parts starting to show signs of failing, make sure to have them repaired or replaced as soon as possible. This will also help prevent other parts of the air conditioner from failing and becoming damaged.

Filter Changes

One of the most important things to inspect is the filter of the system. The filter is important because it will collect the dirt and dust that is in the air of your home. If anyone suffers from allergies or asthma, they may have a difficult time breathing. You should always make sure to check the filter on a regular basis. When it is recommended, the filter should be changed. If you have pets in your home, the pet hair and pet dander can become problematic. The filter may also have to be changed more frequently if anyone in your home smokes or uses tobacco products.

Preventative maintenance for other Parts

Preventative maintenance will also be helpful for the other parts and components of the HVAC system. This can include the thermostat, ductwork, and the part of the air conditioner that is outside. Making sure that the ductwork is clean and clear of debris is important for the efficiency of it. When there is a buildup in it, the unit will no longer circulate air properly. It may also cause extra strain and wear to the parts of the unit. Make sure to contact us so we can inspect the air conditioner system for you this summer.

Maintenance for the Air Conditioner during the Summer

Regular maintenance is always needed to help your air conditioner run at top performance levels and efficiency. One of the many benefits of having the air conditioner maintained is that you can also help save on monthly energy bills. If the system works harder, then you will notice an increase in the amount of energy that is used. You will also want to make sure that the thermostat of the home is set to the ideal temperature as well. Setting it too low can cause the system to work harder, as it tries to cool down the home to that temperature.

Maintenance for the Air Conditioner

Checking the air conditioner is important. The internal components should be checked, as well as the unit that is outside your home. Make sure to check the thermostat of the air conditioner as well. Notice if the actual temperature and set temperature are different by several degrees. If true, then the thermostat will need to be inspected. Notice if the thermostat is not sending the proper signals to the air conditioner, you can also notice that the energy bill has increased as well.

Check the Filter

Also remember that the filter should be inspected on a regular basis. A clean filter is what will help keep the air in your home clean. Also free of any pollutants or contaminants. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, the dirt in the air may be to blame. Make sure that the filter is the correct size for the air conditioner. This will help it to perform at the top efficiency. If you have a programmable thermostat, it can alert you for when the filter will need to be changed or inspected. Make sure to contact with any questions you may have about your air conditioning system and unit.

Comfort in your Home this season

Make sure your home has the proper comfort and temperature that you would like. To help accomplish this, make sure that the air conditioner and HVAC system is maintained regularly. This way we can inspect it for any issues or problems. Even if you think the air conditioner is in working condition, it is always best to have it checked before you turn it on. Sometimes the warranty will be void if you do not do pre-season maintenance for it. If you are not sure when and what should be inspected on the air conditioner, make sure to contact us.

Comfort for your Home

Another part to inspect is the ductwork of your HVAC system. Over time the dirt and dust can build up in the ductwork. This can lead to poor air quality. It can also cause the system to work harder, because it will need to push the air through the ductwork harder. This will cause the other parts to wear out quicker, because they are working harder. Check the filter on a regular basis as well. This will help capture the dirt and dust that is in the air. If you run the system without a filter, the dirt and dust will enter the system. It can cause the parts to fail as well. So make sure that a filter is always installed when the system runs.

You can also invest in a whole home air purifier. This will help to remove the pollutants and dirt from the air in your home. This can make the air easier to breathe as well. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, you will want to make sure the air is the best quality possible. This will help make your home more enjoyable to be in as well during the summer months.

Always Remember to Clean the Filter


Working Efficiently

Maintenance is always beneficial for your HVAC system, no matter the time of the year. To help keep your HVAC system working efficiently, remember to have the filter cleaned and replaced on a regular basis. As the system operates, it will pull air through and then recycle it out to other rooms in your home via the vents. Having a filter in place will allow the air to transfer through, while catching the dirt and dust. You may not see it in the air, but over time this can add up and clog the filter. Whenever this happens, always make sure to change the filter. Having a clean filter will allow the system to operate without having extra strain on parts as well.

Always Use a Filter for your HVAC

Always remember that the air conditioner should never run without a filter in place. Without a filter, the dirt and dust can enter the HVAC system and start to clog down the ductwork or other parts. This will also result in the dirt be pushed back out into the air of your home as well. Changing the filter on a regular schedule will help keep the entire HVAC system working as efficiently as possible. If you are not sure when the filter should always be changed, contact us and we can advise you on a schedule.

It is also important that you always check the ductwork in the home. If there are any cracks, holes, or any other damage to the ductwork, it should be repaired as soon as possible. This will help reduce any air that is produced and wasted. If there is a crack, the air can escape through it, causing your air conditioner to work hard as well. This will increase the monthly energy bills. If you do notice an issue with the HVAC system or energy bills, make sure to contact us quickly.

Programmable Thermostats are a Beneficial Option


Benefits for your home

A programmable thermostat has several benefits that will help your HVAC system and air conditioner. The most important thing that it can do is to help make sure that you save some money on monthly energy bills. With a programmable thermostat, you can set the thermostat to operate on different days of the week and also hours of the day. This way, the system will not need to work throughout the day when you are not home. Also the same can be true for when you are sleeping. You can raise the temperature if the air conditioner is operating, so the house is a bit warmer as you sleep. Then you can set it so it becomes the desired temperature just as you wake up.

Saving money with a Programmable Thermostat

Installing a programmable thermostat can help you save money because it will not run constantly. It will also help to reduce wear and tear on the parts of your HVAC system as well. When it does not operate as often, then the gears and parts will not have strain against them as well. This can increase the interval of when parts will need to be repaired or replaced. Another benefit of a programmable thermostat is that you can control or adjust it with a smart phone or tablet. This is convenient, especially if you are away from your home longer than you thought. You can adjust the air conditioner so the cool air is not wasted.

Proper Maintenance

Always make sure that your HVAC system is properly cared for and maintained. This way we can check to ensure all parts of the system are correctly operating. If there is an odd noise or smell that you notice from your system, contact us. Having it fixed at the first sign of trouble can help prevent further issues from forming in the long run.
