Summer might seem like it’s a long time off away. But before you know it, you’ll be moving from heating to cooling. Soon enough your air conditioner is running regularly to maintain cool temperatures. It’s beneficial to be ready for the extra usage before temperatures heat up.
Matz-Rightway and our team of Experts can provide support. We’ve designed 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 a lot of other tasks you can do to protect your air conditioner. Here are four of the greatest ways you can prepare for air conditioning season.
Don’t fret, you won’t have to take apart your system and clean every part. Our Experts do 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 give the same level of cooling. In extreme cases, it may stop running altogether and need air conditioning repair.
Your comfort and satisfaction matter 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 malfunction and typically lasts longer.
Routinely replacing your air filter is critical for your air conditioner’s well-being. During a maintenance visit, our professionals check filters and replace them if needed. Putting in a new filter is speedy and simple. You can (and should) do it on your own whenever!
How frequently you need to install a new filter depends on:
Basic flat filters usually last for 30–60 days. Thicker pleated filters can last up to 90 days. If you don’t know if your filter should be replaced, remove it, and angle it toward the light. Replace it if you can’t see light through it.
Filters trap dust, pollen and other pollutants from your residence’s air, keeping airflow clean. Disregarding it will impact your residence’s indoor air quality and your air conditioner’s efficiency.
Sometimes a dirty filter could even damage your system or cause it to stop working. Often changing 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 good 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 like it should. If the batteries are running low, change them.
For added control and convenience, consider getting a smart thermostat. They make conserving energy simpler. And some 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 a great time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Confirming they still work gives peace of mind and an added layer of security.
One of the smartest ways to boost energy-efficient cooling is to decrease the concentration of outside heat coming into your residence. Using premium window treatments like blackout curtains, honeycomb shades or plantation shutters, can stop the sun from influencing your home’s temperatures.
Here are a few other methods to keep your residence chilly without lowering the thermostat:
Our list will help your air conditioner cool better this summer. But the smartest way you can boost efficiency is with air conditioning maintenance. Some perks of this service include:
