To get ready for the summer heat, there are a few maintenance tasks you can do now to help make sure the air conditioner is working the best that it can. Without regular maintenances, the air conditioner will wear out sooner than it should otherwise. Also, other parts will start to have wear and tear to them. If a part becomes damaged, it should be repaired as soon as possible. This can also help to prevent further issues with other parts of the air conditioner. By maintaining the air conditioner, you can help to prevent an unexpected breakdown when you need to have it operating.
Maintain the Air Conditioner regularly
Spring is the best time to get the air conditioner inspected and maintained. We can come and make sure that all the parts are operating as efficiently as they should be. If a part has started to wear down, we can have it inspected and repaired before a larger issue forms. This can also help to reduce the chance of a costly repair bill when it will need to be fixed. It can also decrease the chance of the air conditioner breaking down when you might need it the most. Also make sure to keep the air conditioner well maintained throughout the summer. If you are unsure how often this should be, we can help to recommend a schedule that would benefit the air conditioner. This can help to improve the longevity and efficiency of the unit.
Invest in a Programmable Thermostat
Another way to help increase the efficiency for your air conditioner is to invest in a programmable thermostat. This helps because it can be set to the ideal temperature you want it to be in your home. While you are away from the home or at work, you can increase the temperature so the cool air is not wasted on an empty house. You can then program it to become a more comfortable and cooler temperature before you arrive home. This can also help to lower the monthly energy bills for your home since cool air is not wasted. With several different types of programmable thermostats available, we can help to recommend which one is right for your home and air conditioner unit.
Check the Air Filter on a regular basis
Another way to help increase the efficiency of your air conditioner is to check the air filters regularly. The filters are designed to capture particles of dirt and dust that are in the air of your home. This helps to reduce the chance that the pollutants are distributed back through the air of your home again. The filter should be checked regularly to make sure it is clean. If the filter is clogged, it should then be replaced. A clogged filter will require your air conditioner to work harder to allow the air to move through the filter. This can lead to parts wearing out at a quicker rate. If you are unsure how often to check the air filter contact us at (651) 504-1556 and we can advise you on a schedule.
