AC Maintenance in Alton

Instead of waiting in Alton for a problem to to be needed with your A/C, why not avoid the problem all together? To do so, your HVAC unit must be serviced, even if there is no signs of problems. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are painless, inexpensive and fast:

  • Change the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential will {all be negatively affected by a filthy HVAC unit filter which can put more strain on the ac unit. Filters should be frequently checked and changed if required every thirty days depending on AC usage, dogs and cats and dust.  To an a/c unit a filthy filter is like requesting you to participate in a marathon while wearing a mask.

  • Survey insulation everywhere around the dwelling: The insulation that keeps the building heated in the cold proves to keep it cool during summer. Check out all of the doors in the building to make sure the weather stripping is still producing a seal, and alter the thresholds if necessary to avert a gap along the underside of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements can all be causes of air leaks, so Inspect them for rifts in insulation and add insulation as necessary. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is closed. This poses a security risk and also allows in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when available: An overhead fan can definitely make a place to feel multiple degrees cooler, allowing the home owner to increase the temperature on the thermostat and shorten air conditioning unit run time. During the summer months, the fan can be set to oscillate in a counterclockwise direction to drive cooler air downward and generate a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats allow homeowners to enjoy their favored cooler temperatures while at their home, but more importantly they can be adjusted to lessen A/C run times when the house is empty. Adjust the thermostat higher for workdays and when the home is empty and trim down for weekends and evenings. Homeowners will save a shocking amount on the energy bill by doing this at the same time aware of no evident difference. On days when the temperature is well over ninety degrees, adjust the thermostat at seventy-five or below. Humidity and heat will develop up rapidly inside your home, and it is best not to stress the air conditioning unit as it cycles on.

  • Be aware of causes of warmth: Cooking in an oven or on a stove top regularly or for long amounts of time, lighting multiple candles and leaving incandescent lamps on will all add stunning amounts of heat to the dwelling. Running many appliances simultaneously may also add both humidity and heat to the building. Picking colder foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches can still yield healthy {options}choices} while reducing the temperature. Be sure to only turn on the lights in occupied areas as needed, and think about picking air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
