HVAC maintenance is essential to ensuring your system runs the way it should to keep you cool all summer. Regular service will reduce the potential for breakdowns and increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your AC.
One of the most common reasons for insufficient cooling is a dirty air filter. It makes your system work harder, raising your energy costs, and creating inconsistent cooling throughout your home. Change your air filter every 30-90 days for optimum AC.
Homes in the South typically have lots of ceiling fans. Summer is a great time to put them to use. Fans work together with your air conditioner to help your home feel cooler without changing the thermostat.
Debris can build up around your outdoor air conditioning unit during the winter months, which won’t affect it when it’s cool out, but will when the AC kicks on in the spring and summer. To ensure your system runs right, remove the leaves, branches, and debris from around the equipment.
One way to enhance the performance of your HVAC system throughout the summer is by upgrading to a better thermostat. The latest programmable and smart thermostat technology makes it easier than ever to control your home’s comfort level and energy use.
