Rather than waiting in Palmview for a problem to happen with your air conditioner, why not thwart the problem all together? To do so, your a/c unit must be maintained, even if there is no hint of trouble. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are easy, inexpensive and fast:

  • Change the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be unfortunately affected by a nasty AC filter which can put more stress on the motor and blower. These should be normally inspected and replaced if needed every month depending on air conditioner usage, animals and dust.  To an AC a dusty filter is like requiring you to jog a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Survey insulation around the house: The same insulation that keeps the house warm in the cold serves to keep it refreshing during the heat. Investigate all the doors in the home to make certain the weather stripping is still forming a seal, and change the thresholds if required to fend off a gap by the base of the exit. Crawlspaces, attics and basements sometimes are causes of air leaks, so Check out all of them for cracks in insulation and increase insulation as required. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is fastened. This can also pose a security risk and also lets in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans if available: An overhead fan can actually make a room to feel several degrees cooler, allowing the home owner to turn up the temperature on the control and slash air conditioner run time. During the summer months, the fan can be scheduled to run in a counterclockwise direction to drive colder air downward and initiate a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats grant homeowners to appreciate their own preferred colder climate while at their house, but more importantly they can be scheduled to lower a/c unit run times when the home is empty. Arrange the thermostat higher for workdays and when the home is empty and cut for weekends and evenings. Homeowners should save a surprising amount on the energy bill by doing this at the same time sensing no notable change. On times when the temperature is over 90 degrees, set the thermostat at seventy-five or below. Humidity and heat might increase up fast indoors, and it is good not to stress the a/c unit as it turns on.

  • Being aware of causes of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stove top frequently or for great amounts of time, burning numerous candles and leaving incandescent bulbs on can all add startling quantity of heat to the building. Running numerous appliances simultaneously can also increase both humidity and heat to the building. Deciding on cooler foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches can still produce hearty {options}choices} while reducing the temperature. Be sure to only turn on the lights in occupied areas as needed, and consider picking air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
