Air Service in Elsa

Rather than waiting in Elsa for a repair to come along with your AC, why not prevent the problem in the first place? To do so, your air conditioning unit must be serviced, even when there is no manifestation of problems. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are easy, cheap and fast:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be detrimentally affected by a dusty ac unit filter which will put more stress on the HVAC unit. Filters should be commonly checked and replaced if needed every month depending on air conditioning unit usage, dogs and cats and dust.  To an AC a dirty filter is like asking you to run a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Investigate insulation around the home: The same insulation that keeps the building warm in the winter proves to keep it cool during summer. Inspect all of the doors in the residence to make sure the weather stripping is still creating a seal, and adjust the thresholds if required to bypass a gap along the base of the exit. Crawlspaces, attics and basements can all be causes of air leaks, so Survey all of them for cracks in insulation and add insulation as necessary. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is fastened. This can create a security risk and also lets in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when available: An aerial fan can actually cause a place to feel multiple degrees cooler, allowing the homeowner to raise the temperature on the control and reduce air conditioning unit run time. During the summer months, the fan needs to be arranged to oscillate in a counterclockwise direction to drive colder air downward and spawn a breeze effect.

  • Utilize a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats bring the ability for homeowners to appreciate their preferred cooler climate while at home, but more predominantly they can be scheduled to cut down a/c unit run times during periods of vacancy. Adjust the thermostat higher for workdays and when the home is empty and slash for weekends and evenings. Home owners can save an unpredictable amount on the energy bill by doing this while sensing no noteworthy difference. On times when the temperature goes over 90 degrees, set the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat will develop up fast inside your home, and it is best not to stress the a/c unit as it cycles on.

  • Be aware of sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stove-top often or for long measure of time, burning numerous candles and leaving incandescent lights running will all increase unpredictable quantity of heat to the residence. Running multiple appliances together may also increase both humidity and heat to the home. Picking colder foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches can still bring hearty {options}choices} while lowering heat. Be sure to only keep the lights on in occupied areas as needed, and consider choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
