Air Conditioning Maintenance if there is an Issue

 

You will always want your home to be cool and comfortable. If there is an issue with the air conditioner, you will want to have it checked immediately. While there are several things that could cause an issue, always try to notice the first signs of it. This way, you can have it repaired before it becomes an emergency situation. In the summer, it is not always guaranteed the air conditioner can be fixed on the same day. So to help avoid this situation, have a maintenance program for it so it can be inspected properly by us.

 

The filter is an important part for the air conditioner as well. If this becomes clogged, then the air flow has extra strain as it passes through the system. It can cause the motor and gears to wear out sooner than they should as well. Also remember to never operate the air conditioner without a filter in it. Doing so would allow dirt and dust to get into the system, causing damage in the long run. Having an extra filter on hand is important because you can change it at anytime. Some programmable thermostats will even alert you for when the filter should be changed in the system. If you are not sure the correct size, make sure to contact us.

 

You will also want to make sure the temperature is not set too low. If you have the house set at sixty degrees, the air conditioner can wear out faster or even freeze up. You will want to maintain a comfortable temperature that also does not make the air conditioner overwork. When you notice the set and actual temperature are different from one another, contact us. That way we can inspect the system for you.

Change the Filter on a Regular Basis

The filter on your home should be changed on a regular basis. This will help keep the furnace operating efficiently when it runs this winter. If the filter is clogged, then you may notice the furnace working harder. That is because the air will be more difficult to pull through the filter and into the system. It can then lead to extra wear and stress for the system. We can also recommend when they filter should be checked to ensure it is clean. Based on a schedule, the filter should be replaced as well. This will help the system to work without putting extra strain on it. A clean filter will also increase the quality of air in your home.

Extra Filter

It is also recommended that you have an extra filter on hand. This is beneficial incase you need to replace the filter on the weekend, holiday, or after hours. You may notice that sometimes the programmable thermostat will notify you that the filter is in need of being changed or replaced. If you are not sure if the thermostat has that capability, contact us. We can answer any questions you have, or recommend a new thermostat if one is needed.

Improve Air Quality

You will want the air quality to be the best it can be this winter. If the air is poor, it will be more difficult to breathe. If anyone in the home suffers from allergies or asthma, they will notice the poor air quality almost right away. On some occasions, it may be beneficial to get an air purifier or air cleaner. This will help to remove any pollutants or contaminants that are in the air. This can trap it in the cleaner, and release the clean air back into your home again. No matter what questions you have about your HVAC system, make sure to contact us.
