Servicing Your Unit in Mercedes

Instead of sitting around in Mercedes for a problem to happen with your a/c unit, why not avert the repair all together? To do so, your ac unit must be serviced, even when there is no hint of problems. Luckily, each of the following preventative maintenance tasks are painless, low-cost and fast:

  • Change the air filter: Indoor air quality, energy efficiency and Cooling potential will {all be adversely affected by a filthy air conditioning unit filter which will put more strain on the blower and motor. These should be frequently inspected and swapped if required every 30 days depending on AC usage, dogs and cats and dirt.  To an a/c unit a grimy filter is like requesting you to jog a long race while wearing a mask.

  • Investigate insulation everywhere around the dwelling: The same insulation that keeps the house pleasant in the winter serves to keep it refreshing during the heat. Survey all the doors in the home to make sure the climate stripping is still generating a seal, and fix the thresholds if needed to ward off a rift along the bottom of the exit. Crawlspaces, attics and basements sometimes are sources of air leaks, so Review them for voids in insulation and increase insulation as needed. For windows with opening upper halves, make sure the top half is secured. This can also pose a security risk and also lets in humidity.

  • Use floor and ceiling fans when feasible: An overhead fan can definitely cause a room to feel multiple degrees cooler, allowing the homeowner to upturn the temperature on the thermostat and scale down air conditioning unit run time. During the summer months, the fan needs to be set to oscillate in a counterclockwise direction to thrust cooler air down and make a breeze effect.

  • Use a programmable or smart thermostat: Programmable and Smart thermostats grant home owners to relish in their preferred colder temperatures while at their house, but more notably they can be adjusted to reduce A/C run times when no one is home. Schedule the thermostat up for workdays and during periods of vacancy and trim down for weekends and evenings. Homeowners can save a startling amount on the energy bill by doing this while feeling no outstanding difference. On days when the temperature is more than 90 degrees, schedule the thermostat at 75 or below. Humidity and heat might increase up swiftly inside your home, and it is best not to stress the ac unit as it cycles on.

  • Being smart with sources of warmth: Cooking in an oven or on a stove-top often or for lengthy amounts of time, lighting many candles and leaving incandescent bulbs running will all increase surprising amounts of heat to the house. Running many appliances simultaneously can also increase both humidity and heat to the dwelling. Deciding on cooler foods for summer such as salads and sandwiches will still give robust {options}choices} while reducing 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.
