Air Installers in Alton

Instead of waiting in Alton for a repair to happen with your air conditioner, why not avoid the problem before it happens? To do so, your air conditioning unit must be maintained, even when there is no signs of trouble. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are uncomplicated, cheap and quick:

  • Change the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be adversely effected by a soiled air conditioning unit filter which will put more strain on the AC. These should be regularly inspected and changed if required every thirty days depending on A/C usage, dogs and cats and dirt.  To an A/C a soiled filter is like having you to jog a marathon while wearing a mask.

  • Inspect insulation everywhere around the residence: The insulation that keeps the house heated in the cold serves to keep it cool during the summer. Check out all of the doors in the house to make certain the weather stripping is still making a seal, and alter the thresholds if paramount to avert a hole by the underside of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements are causes of air leaks, so Inspect all of them for holes in insulation and add insulation as required. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is sealed. This can create a security risk and also lets in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when possible: An overhead fan can actually cause a place to feel several degrees colder, granting the home owner to turn up the temperature on the control and lower A/C run time. During the summer months, the fan needs to be adjusted to spin in a counterclockwise direction to drive colder air down and build a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats bring the ability for homeowners to appreciate their favored colder climate while at their home, but more notably they can be adjusted to lower air conditioner run times when the home is empty. Arrange the thermostat higher for workdays and when the home is empty and cut down for weekends and evenings. Home owners can save a startling chunk on the energy bill by doing this while sensing no noticeable difference. On days when the temperature is over ninety degrees, arrange the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat will develop up expeditiously inside homes, and it is good not to stress the A/C as it cycles on.

  • Being smart with sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stove top often or for lengthy amounts of time, lighting numerous candles and leaving incandescent lights running will all add unpredictable quantity of heat to the home. Running numerous appliances at once will also raise both humidity and heat to the house. Deciding on cooler foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches will still yield healthy {options}choices} while reducing the temperature. Be sure to only light occupied places as required, and look at choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer days as well.
