You need an air conditioning system you can count on for the summer season. After all, the last thing you probably want to happen is for your HVAC system to break down in the middle of a hot day. In this summer blog Efficient Systems, your local heating and air conditioning company, shares a few tips on how to make sure you have a well-maintained HVAC system this summer.
Test Your Air Conditioner Early
While having an air conditioner break down is bad enough, an air conditioner that won’t turn on at all is even worse. Most types of HVAC repairs take about a day to complete, but in some cases, things can be delayed if replacement parts have to be ordered from the manufacturer. Since summer is a busy season, you may not even be able to find an HVAC technician that has availability on short notice.
Fortunately, you can avoid being in this situation by having your air conditioner tested in the spring. This will give you all the time you need to troubleshoot your system and call an HVAC technician like those here at Efficient Systems to perform HVAC maintenance and repairs if necessary. This way, even if repairs get delayed, you won’t have to suffer through hot weather while waiting.
Conduct Regular Inspections
Regular HVAC inspections complement scheduled maintenance, enabling you to find small problems such as punctures and electronic malfunctions and have them repaired by a professional before they develop into bigger issues. Having minor repairs done early on costs much less than it would if you were to wait until bigger problems develop and then have to fix them. In addition to regular inspections, make sure the air filters are cleaned (or replaced, if disposable) at least once a year.
Encourage Adequate Airflow
Proper airflow helps you get the most from your HVAC system. Make sure that vents and registers aren’t blocked by curtains, furniture or decor. Unobstructed airflow allows even distribution of cool air, which helps lessen the output required by your system to maintain an ideal room temperature. Use a ceiling fan or a standalone fan to keep the air flowing.
