Instead of waiting in McAllen for a repair to come along with your A/C, why not prevent the repair in the first place? To do so, your a/c unit must be maintained, even when there is no manifestation of trouble. Luckily, each of the following maintenance tasks are uncomplicated, cheap and fast:

  • Replace the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential will {all be adversely affected by a filthy ac unit filter which can put more stress on the AC. Filters should be normally inspected and swapped if needed every 30 days depending on A/C usage, pets and filth.  To an a/c unit a soiled filter is like asking you to run a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Review insulation around the home: The same insulation that keeps the house heated in winter proves to keep it cool during the heat. Inspect all the doors in the home to make certain the weather stripping is still creating a seal, and adjust the thresholds if required to avoid a crack around the underside of the door. Crawlspaces, attics and basements are sources of air leaks, so Inspect all of them for holes in insulation and add more as necessary. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is fastened. This can also pose a security risk and also allows in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans if feasible: An overhead fan can indeed cause a room to feel a few degrees cooler, granting the homeowner to increase the temperature on the control and dwindle AC run time. During the summer days, the fan needs to be adjusted to run in a counterclockwise direction to drive colder air downward and create a breeze effect.

  • Utilize a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats grant home owners to appreciate their preferred colder temperatures while at their house, but more predominantly they can be adjusted to shorten a/c unit run times when nobody is there. Set the thermostat higher for workdays and when nobody is there and reduce for weekends and evenings. Home owners should save a remarkable amount on the energy bill by doing this while feeling no evident change. On days when the temperature is well over ninety degrees, arrange the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat will increase up rapidly inside your home, and it is best not to stress the HVAC unit as it turns on.

  • Be aware of sources of heat: Cooking in an oven or on a stovetop frequently or for long measure of time, burning numerous candles and leaving incandescent lamps on will all add shocking amounts of heat to the home. Running numerous appliances simultaneously can also add both humidity and heat to the house.

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.
