Summer is here and with the temperatures nearing the triple digits, here are great tips that can help your A/C operate efficiently and keep you cool:
- Change your furnace filter. Your filter is the first line of defense against damaging dirt and dust. Check it frequently during the warm-weather season and change it regularly, check them monthly, change them when they are dirty is the best way to do it. A lot of service calls are related to dirty or clogged filters.
- Close Curtains and Blinds. Blocking out the heat by keeping the blinds or curtains closed is a simple way to keep the heat out and prevent your A/C from being overworked.
- Set Thermostat to 78 Degrees or higher. This is proven to be an optimum temperature setting for system efficiency and reducing your power bills. Never set your thermostat below 70 degrees, setting it lower can risk icing up the unit and causes equipment failure.
- Know your A/C’s Limits: Most Air Conditioners will only maintain a 20 degree difference to the outside temperature. So that means if it is 100 degrees outside then it will be 80 degrees inside.
- Check the Vents. Vacuum and dust air conditioning vents often and make sure that they’re not blocked by furnishings, floor coverings or window treatments.
- Check the coils on the outdoor unit for weeds and debris. When the cottonseed flies, it can definitely cause the coil to be plugged making your unit run sluggish and could cause equipment failure. Rinse with cool water from the hose to removed this debris.
We sure hope these tips help but if you still cannot get your A/C to work properly, give us a call to schedule and appointment. Also, remember it is very important to have your unit serviced each season to keep it working to manufacturer’s specifications as well as working efficiently and save you on your utility bills.
