HVAC Contractor in Alton

Rather than waiting in Alton for a problem to happen with your air conditioner, why not prevent the repair all together? To do so, your ac unit must be maintained, even if there are no suggestion of problems. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are easy, low-cost and quick:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential can {all be unfortunately effected by a nasty a/c unit filter which will put more strain on the A/C. These should be frequently checked and swapped if required every month depending on HVAC unit usage, pets and dirt.  To an ac unit a soiled filter is like asking you to sprint a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Check insulation around the residence: The exact insulation that keeps the building heated in the winter proves to keep it refreshing during the heat. Check all of the doors in the dwelling to make sure the weather stripping is still producing a seal, and fine-tune the thresholds if required to avert a hole along the bottom of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements sometimes are sources of air leaks, so Investigate them for cracks in insulation and increase insulation as needed. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is closed. This can create a security risk and also allows in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when available: An aerial fan can indeed cause a room to feel multiple degrees colder, granting the homeowner to turn up the temperature on the thermostat and shorten a/c unit run time. During the summer days, the fan can be arranged to run in a counterclockwise direction to thrust colder air down and start a breeze effect.

  • Utilize a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats allow home owners to savor their preferred cooler temperatures while at their home, but more particularly they can be adjusted to shorten air conditioner run times when no one is home. Schedule the thermostat up for workdays and when nobody is there and diminish for weekends and evenings. Homeowners should save an amazing chunk on the energy bill by doing this while feeling no evident change. On days when the temperature exceeds 90 degrees, set the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat might develop up rapidly indoors, and it is good not to stress the HVAC unit as it turns on.

  • Be aware of sources of warmth: Cooking in an oven or on a stove-top frequently or for great amounts of time, lighting numerous candles and leaving incandescent bulbs on can all add shocking quantity of heat to the house. Running multiple appliances simultaneously will also raise both humidity and heat to the house. Deciding on colder foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches will still grant hearty {options}choices} while reducing heat. Be sure to only turn on the lights in occupied rooms as required, and consider choosing air fresheners over scented candles during the summer months as well.
