Rather than waiting in Hidalgo for a repair to come along with your air conditioning unit, why not thwart the problem all together? To do so, your HVAC unit must be maintained, even when there are no warning of problems. Luckily, each of the following maintenance tasks are painless, inexpensive and quick:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be adversely impacted by a dusty A/C filter which will put more stress on the AC. These should be routinely checked and switched if required every thirty days depending on A/C usage, dogs and cats and dust.  To an ac unit a filthy filter is like requesting you to jog a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Survey insulation around the home: The exact insulation that keeps the home warm in the winter serves to keep it cool during the summer. Check out all the doors in the building to make certain the weather stripping is still making a seal, and fix the thresholds if needed to fend off a gap along the bottom of the exit. Crawlspaces, attics and basements sometimes are sources of air leaks, so Inspect all of them for rifts in insulation and add insulation as needed. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is sealed. This can also pose a security risk and also allows in humidity.

  • Utilize floor and ceiling fans when available: An overhead fan can actually cause a place to feel multiple degrees cooler, allowing the home owner to raise the temperature on the thermostat and trim air conditioning unit run time. During the summer months, the fan needs to be set to spin in a counterclockwise direction to drive cooler air downward and build a breeze effect.

  • Utilize a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats grant home owners to relish in their own preferred colder temperatures while at their home, but more notably they can be adjusted to cut air conditioning unit run times when not at home. Arrange the thermostat higher for workdays and when nobody is there and lower for weekends and evenings. Home owners should save an amazing amount on the energy bill by doing this while sensing no remarkable change. On times when the temperature exceeds ninety degrees, adjust the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat might develop up promptly inside homes, and it is good not to stress the air conditioning unit as it turns on.

  • Be smart with sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stove-top frequently or for great measure of time, lighting multiple candles and leaving incandescent bulbs on will all add shocking amounts of heat to the home. Running various appliances at once may also add both humidity and heat to the house. Choosing colder foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches will still provide healthy {options}choices} while lowering heat. Be sure to only turn on the lights in occupied rooms as necessary, and consider choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer days as well.
