It’s best to enjoy it before the Dog Days Of Summer arrive. But you shouldn’t wait till then to have your Air Conditioner checked. Now is the time, once summer hits full force all those who did wait will be calling, calling and calling. Everyone you call in the yellow-pages will be booked solid sometimes days to weeks before they could get to you.
Clean around the outside condenser, remove all trash, grass, and any other debris so it can breath. If you clean your condenser coil every year then great but always turn the power off to it to prevent any chance of electrical shock. But for those of you that don’t have the time or don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, It might be time to call the Professionals to get it done right and give it a thorough cleaning and check.
Filters… Everyone forgets about them, but lets check it now. They should be checked at least once a month and changed a minimum of every three months. Unless you have allergies don’t splurge for the pleated. Fiberglass filters work just fine as long as you change them monthly. On a poorly designed system Pleated filters can cause more damage than good by decreasing airflow to much. Airflow is critical to your comfort and the longevity of your equipment.
By having your system checked out by the Professionals you can save money.
- One by making sure your system is operating at peak performance so you’ll be saving on your electric bill from the get go.
- Second by inspecting the system as a whole we can determine if a part needs replaced now. Replacing a simple component like a capacitor or contactor that’s worn out now. Could save you from replacing a more Expensive component like a compressor or fan motor. Clean Filters and Clean coils will decrease the likelihood of those components failing as well.
