Getting Your AC Ready For The SummerMay 14th, 2012
If you want to do more than just fight the heat you are going to have to make sure that your air conditioning system is in tip-top shape. Although it isn’t easy to maintain an air conditioning unit, the truth is that regular maintenance is a must to keep the product working at its highest efficiency.
Here are some tips on preparing your air conditioning system for the summer:
Check the air quality: Your current air conditioning unit may not be filtering out harmful toxins, molds, and gasses that could cause respiratory problems. If air quality testing is needed, contact Guaranteed Plumbing and Heating to provide a system to remove the toxins and give you a more healthy indoor air environment.
Keeping cold air inside: It is important to seal your windows and doors to prevent leakage. It will save you money, prolong the life of your AC unit, and keep your house nice and cool.
Save that energy: Many AC units these days have an energy-saving option. Instead of running the AC in a house that is plenty cool, the energy-saving setting will only run the AC when the home gets above a certain temperature.
Think about an upgrade: Newer AC systems are quieter, more efficient, and effective.
Maintenance: It’s a good idea to regularly maintain and service your central air system. Once a clean filter is installed, the system will work more efficiently. Other parts of the AC system that need to be inspected during a maintenance check include:
.The charge of the refrigeration system
.Condensate pans and drain lines to ensure blockages are clear
.The thermostat for proper operation
.Voltages and amperage readings
So whether you are looking to jump up into a fantastic new cooling system or just need a repair on your current one, Guaranteed Plumbing and Heating is the company you can trust to check your air conditioning system and get ready for the hot days of summer!
