Summertime means that the heat is here to stay. If you want to keep your home comfortable though, now is the best time to check on it and make sure it’s performing properly. While it’s impossible to predict when your system might break or fail on your, we’ve laid out some tips so that you can prevent this from happening!
- Check Your Air Filter
Air filters are what separates the hot, dusty air, from clean, cool bliss. It’s very important that you keep track of when you last replaced your air filter so you can coordinate getting a new one to keep your system clean. Having a clogged filter can block air flow and cause your system to malfunction, some studies have shown that this block in air flow can lower your AC’s efficiency by up to 10%.
- Check Thermostat Batteries
We know it seems like it’s too simple, but you would be surprised at how this can be easily overlooked!
- Check The Circuit Breaker
It’s common for circuits to get tripped or messed up, so this can be an easy fix if you know what to look for. Simply find you circuit breaker in the breaker box and flip the switch in the opposite position. If you don’t notice any changes you might need to call an electrician as this would be a much more serious issue.
- Check The Coil On The Outside Of Your Machine
A well maintained condenser coil is crucial to having an efficient AC unit. It your coil is covered in debris like leaves or grass just take a hose and gently spray it all away. Just another great example of how important it is to keep your unit clean and maintained.
