Home Aircon Maintenance in McAllen

Instead of waiting in McAllen for a problem to happen with your A/C, why not avert the repair before it happens? To do so, your ac unit must be maintained, even if there are no signs of problems. Luckily, each of the following maintenance tasks are uncomplicated, economical and quick:

  • Change the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be unfortunately affected by a dirty HVAC unit filter which can put more strain on the air conditioning unit. These should be typically checked and changed if needed every thirty days depending on AC usage, pets and dust.  To an A/C a soiled filter is like requesting you to run a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Inspect insulation everywhere around the home: The same insulation that keeps the dwelling warm in winter serves to keep it cool during summer. Check all of the doors in the home to make sure the climate stripping is still making a seal, and fix the thresholds if needed to bypass a rift around the bottom of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements can all be sources of air leaks, so Inspect them for cracks in insulation and increase more 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 if feasible: An overhead fan can actually cause a room to feel a few degrees cooler, allowing the homeowner to turn up the temperature on the thermostat and cut air conditioner run time. During the summer days, the fan can be adjusted to oscillate in a counterclockwise direction to thrust colder air downward and make a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats grant homeowners to savor their favored cooler temperatures while at their home, but more notably they can be scheduled to lower AC run times when not at home. Set the thermostat higher for workdays and when the house is empty and cut for weekends and evenings. Homeowners will save a startling amount on the energy bill by doing this while feeling no noteworthy difference. On times when the temperature goes over 90 degrees, set the thermostat at seventy five or below. Humidity and heat can increase up immediately indoors, and it is best not to stress the air conditioning unit as it cycles on.

  • Be smart with sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stove top often or for great measure of time, lighting multiple candles and leaving incandescent lights on can all increase stunning amounts of heat to the house. Running multiple appliances at once may also increase both humidity and heat to the home. Deciding on cooler foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches can still grant fresh {options}choices} while reducing heat. Be sure to only keep the lights on in occupied areas as required, and look at picking air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
