Summer might seem like it’s a long time off away. But before you blink, you’ll be transitioning from heating to cooling. Soon enough your air conditioner is working regularly to maintain cool temperatures. It’s smart to prepare for the extra usage before temperatures heat up.
Calverley Service Experts and our team of Experts can assist you. We’ve made our all-inclusive air conditioning memberships to boost your system’s energy efficiency and dependability. Our professional skill goes a long way, but there are a lot of other steps you can take to protect your air conditioner. Here are four of the best ways you can prepare for air conditioning season.
Don’t fret, you won’t have to disassemble your system and clean every component. Our Experts do this during your annual air conditioning maintenance appointment.
But cleaning the space around your air conditioner will go a long way as well. We suggest:
If your air conditioner’s fins get full of dirt or yard refuse, this can affect performance and comfort. Your air conditioner will have to run longer to provide the same level of comfort. In severe cases, it may stop working altogether and need air conditioning repair.
Your comfort and satisfaction matter to us, so we want to minimize the likelihood of repairs in the first place. A well-maintained air conditioner usually runs more efficiently, is less likely to malfunction and usually lasts longer.
Routinely replacing your air filter is critical for your air conditioner’s well-being. During a maintenance visit, our techs inspect filters and put in new ones if needed. Putting in a new filter is quick and straightforward. You can (and should) do it on your own whenever!
How frequently you need to get 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. Get a new one if you can’t see light through it.
Filters catch dust, pollen and other pollutants from your house’s air, keeping airflow healthy. Disregarding it will impact your house’s indoor air quality and your air conditioner’s efficiency.
In some situations a dirty filter could even damage your system or cause it to stop working. Frequently replacing it will keep the inside of your air conditioner cleaner and airflow more level.
If someone in your family has allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems, check with our Experts about how a HEPA filter can lessen symptoms.
Now is the perfect time to check other important pieces of your air conditioner and other safety systems.
If you have a programmable thermostat, check that it’s operating right. If the batteries are getting low, replace them.
For added control and convenience, think over installing a smart thermostat. They make saving 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 a good time to test the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Confirming they’re still good gives peace of mind and an added layer of security.
One of the smartest ways to boost energy-efficient cooling is to minimize the concentration of outside heat getting into your house. Using quality window treatments such as blackout curtains, honeycomb shades or plantation shutters, can keep the sun from impacting interior temperatures.
Here are several other ways to keep your house chilly without lowering the thermostat:
