Do you think to get the AC system repaired early or before summer is foolish? Perhaps you think your AC system doesn’t need it. You’ll get it inspected when there’s a need, right?
Get Ready for Summer
Beware! Sometimes, sourcing the right part takes days, and at other times, you might find out that the contractor has been booked for days in advance! *Gasp*
But before this happens, you should identify if your AC is working properly.
Follow these tips to take care of your AC to get cool, breezy summers:
Check Out the Ductwork
Drywall can hide most of the ductwork. No worries, though. Some part is still open for inspection. Be sure to keep an eye out on leaky ducts as they can let allergens and dust inside your home.
Damaged insulation and rust are all signs of a less-than-average duct work. The duct can also sustain damage from innocuous-looking small animals who try seeking shelter inside. You should inspect for any odd smells coming from vents.
Change the Filters
….because if you don’t, you’ll just be interrupting the airflow, which could lead to worse air-conditioning. If your home has central air conditioning, you must get high-quality filters and be sure to change after every three months.
Your lifestyle can have a huge impact on how frequently you change air filters. Turns out, if you have pets at home or kids, you should change filters every month. In contrast, those with no pets and less frequent visitors are required to change air-conditioning filters after every 2 to 3 months.
Clean the Coils
They help in movement of hot and cold air, so inspect them regularly for even cooling.
For the central air-conditioning unit, you might need to call a professional, in addition to cleaning the outdoor condenser unit.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat can save you a huge amount in electricity bills by efficient cooling.
If you have a same daily routine, set indoor temperatures in advance. When you’re not home, the temperatures can be set a little bit higher but cool enough for your pets.
