When your air conditioner breaks down, you need to scramble to get a technician to your home and get your house back to a comfortable state, especially in the middle of summer. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could feel more confident that your air conditioner would not break down when you need it most?
Take preventative measures with the help of our experts and this quick guide to keeping your system in top shape. You can drastically reduce the chances of an AC system breakdown and keep your equipment in better condition for a long time to come.
Use the Thermostat Wisely
One of the easiest things you can do to protect your air conditioning system is to use it less. The EPA recommends a summertime temperature of about 78° for maximum efficiency. In addition, you should turn the temperature up about 5-10° when you leave the home or while you are asleep.
If you don’t already have a programmable thermostat, consider an upgrade. This can help you make smarter energy choices and manage your AC system. With a Wi-Fi thermostat you can even control the temperature from wherever you are via a smart phone.
Maintain Your Air Conditioner
Proper air conditioning maintenance is key to a longer lasting system and a low chance of failure in the summer. Schedule professional AC maintenance once a year in the early spring, if possible. And be sure to change your air filter each month to maintain proper airflow through the system and to keep it from becoming overworked.
Schedule Duct Services
Your air ducts may be full of holes that prevent air from reaching the home and force your air conditioner to become overworked. Or, there could be a thick buildup of dirt in the air ducts reducing efficiency by creating friction as air moves through. Schedule duct services today to get your HVAC system into shape for better comfort and less stress year round.
