Home Aircon Maintenance in Alton

Instead of sitting around in Alton for a repair to come along with your HVAC unit, why not stop the problem before it happens? To do so, your HVAC unit must be maintained, even if there are no signal of problems. Luckily, each of the following maintenance tasks are straightforward, cheap and fast:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be adversely impacted by a grimy air conditioning unit filter which can put more strain on the air conditioning unit. Filters should be routinely inspected and changed if required every 30 days depending on HVAC unit usage, cats and dogs and dust.  To an AC a dusty filter is like requesting you to sprint a marathon while wearing a mask.

  • Review insulation everywhere around the residence: The same insulation that keeps the residence pleasant in the winter proves to keep it refreshing during the heat. Review all of the doors in the dwelling to make sure the weather stripping is still creating a seal, and adjust the thresholds if necessary to ward off a gap along the bottom of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements sometimes are causes of air leaks, so Survey them for gaps in insulation and add more as needed. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is closed. This can also pose a security risk and also allows in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when possible: An aerial fan can indeed make a room to feel a few degrees cooler, allowing the homeowner to up the temperature on the control and lower A/C run time. During the summer months, the fan should be set to run in a counterclockwise direction to drive colder air downward and spawn a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats bring the ability for homeowners to relish in their preferred colder temperatures while at home, but more notably they can be adjusted to lower ac unit run times when nobody is there. Adjust the thermostat higher for workdays and during periods of vacancy and trim down for weekends and evenings. Home owners should save a wonderful chunk on the energy bill by doing this at the same time sensing no evident difference. On days when the temperature goes over 90 degrees, arrange the thermostat at seventy-five or lower. Humidity and heat can increase up immediately indoors, and it is good not to stress the ac unit as it turns on.

  • Be aware of sources of warmth: Cooking in an oven or on a stove-top regularly or for great amounts of time, burning many candles and leaving incandescent lights on will all add stunning quantity of heat to the house. Running numerous appliances together will also increase both humidity and heat to the home. Picking cooler foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches can still produce fresh {options}choices} while lowering the temperature. Be sure to only keep the lights on in occupied rooms as needed, and consider choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
