Summer Heat can affect the system
The condensation lines should be cleaned during the summer as well. Over time the pipe that carries condensation away from the air conditioner can become clogged. If this happens, then it can back up into the air conditioner or your home. This will then result in a large repair bill as well as a large mess to clean up. We can also inspect it to ensure that it is draining properly. Also remember to check around the outdoor unit so it is free of any debris. Any high grass, leaves, plants, or landscape will reduce the performance of the air conditioner. Make sure to cut or move them away so the air conditioner has proper air flow.
Installing a programmable thermostat can help keep the home cool and comfortable this summer. This is a great way to set the home to the ideal temperature, while also saving money. It will help reduce the amount of time the air conditioner operates. In the long run, this will make it more efficient for the home when it cools it down. There are several different options when it comes to the thermostats, so make sure to contact us. This way we can recommend which one is best for your home and air conditioner.
