Summer is almost here, and the experts at AnyDay Heating & Cooling want to make sure you and your home stay cool all summer long.
Here are some helpful tips that will help keep your AC running at peak performance levels:
Tip 1: Check Your System in Advance
The best thing to do before the summer weather arrives is to turn on your air conditioning system and let it run for about 30 minutes to see if it is working properly. If the air doesn’t feel cool or the unit is making a strange sound, it may need to be serviced.
Tip 2: Keep the Area Around Your Unit Clean
In our many years of AC repair in Garner and surrounding communities, we’ve shared simple upkeep and landscaping tips that can save homeowners money. Make sure you regularly check the unit and sweep away any dirt or debris that has accumulated around it. Also, trim back any plants and bushes to allow proper airflow.
Tip 3: Close Windows and Doors
One of the most important steps in keeping your home cool and your air conditioning system working smoothly is to keep your home’s windows and outer doors closed. You may like to open the windows to allow fresh air into your home, however, doing this while the AC is running will cause your unit to work extra hard.
Bonus tips: Keep your ceiling fans running at the same time as your AC to circulate the air. And keep your blinds and curtains to block sunlight. A dark home is easier to keep cool.
Tip 4: Change Your Filters Regularly
Keeping your air filters clean and changing them on a regular basis helps to keep the air in your home pure and smelling fresh. We recommend changing the filters once a month, especially during the warm summer months.
Tip 5: Clean Your Registers and Coils
Along with your filters, you should regularly clean the registers in your home and the condenser coils located on the outdoor unit. Doing this will help air pass through your system more easily. If this task seems overwhelming, schedule a service call with the Garner heating and cooling experts at AnyDay to handle it for you.
Tip 6: Keep Your Hands Off the Thermostat
It is best practice to set your thermostat at a base temperature and leave it be. The constant changing of temperature will not only cost you more money but will cause undesirable wear and tear on your unit leading to expensive air conditioning repair.
Bonus tip: Purchasing a “smart” thermometer is a great way to help reduce your energy bills as well as the stress on your cooling system.
