Summer may feel like it’s a long time off away. But before you realize, you’ll be switching from heating to cooling. Soon enough your air conditioner is running regularly to maintain cool temperatures. It’s wise to be ready for the extra usage before temperatures heat up.
Falso Service Experts and our team of Experts can provide support. We’ve created our all-inclusive air conditioning memberships to boost your system’s energy efficiency and trustworthiness. Our professional skill goes a long way, but there are lots of other steps you can take to protect your air conditioner. Here are four of the best ways you can get ready for air conditioning season.
Don’t be concerned, you won’t have to disassemble your system and clean every piece. Our Experts handle this during your routine air conditioning maintenance appointment.
But cleaning the space around your air conditioner will go a long way as well. We advise:
If your air conditioner’s fins get blocked by dirt or yard refuse, this can affect performance and comfort. Your air conditioner will have to run more often to deliver the same level of cool air. In severe cases, it may stop running altogether and need air conditioning repair.
Your comfort and satisfaction are important to us, so we like to minimize the likelihood of repairs in the first place. A well-maintained air conditioner usually operates more efficiently, is less likely to break down and typically lasts longer.
Routinely replacing your air filter is critical for your air conditioner’s well-being. During a maintenance visit, our technicians check filters and put in new ones if necessary. Putting in a new filter is quick and easy. You can (and should) do it on your own whenever!
How frequently you need to install a new filter depends on:
Basic flat filters normally last for 30–60 days. More dense pleated filters can last up to 90 days. If you don’t know if your filter should be replaced, pull it out, and tilt it toward the light. Put in a new one if you can’t see light through it.
Filters trap dust, pollen and other pollutants from your home’s air, keeping airflow healthy. Disregarding it will impact your home’s indoor air quality and your air conditioner’s efficiency.
Sometimes a dirty filter could even damage your system or cause it to malfunction. Regularly replacing it will keep the inside of your air conditioner cleaner and airflow more balanced.
If someone in your household has allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems, check with our Experts about how a HEPA filter can lessen symptoms.
Now is a great time to check other important parts of your air conditioner and other safety systems.
If you use a programmable thermostat, make sure that it’s running correctly. If the batteries are running low, change them.
For added control and convenience, think over upgrading to a smart thermostat. They make using less energy simpler. And select models can even tell you if there’s an issue with your air conditioner or if your air filter needs replacing.
Although they’re not part of your air conditioning system, now is an excellent time to inspect the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Confirming they still have juice gives peace of mind and an additional layer of safety.
One of the smartest ways to boost energy-efficient cooling is to reduce the amount of outside heat getting into your home. Using good window treatments such as blackout curtains, honeycomb shades or plantation shutters, can keep the sun from impacting indoor temperatures.
Here are several other methods to keep your home chilly without adjusting the thermostat:
Our list will help your air conditioner operate better this summer. But the smartest way you can increase efficiency is with air conditioning maintenance. Some perks of this service entail:
