The summer heat can be unbearable for many people, and with the middle of summer approaching now is the best time to make sure your AC is prepared to keep you and your loved ones comfortable. If you want to prevent your unit from breaking or not performing or efficiently, check out these 5 tips.
- Check Your Air Filter
Your air filter is like the gatekeeper between hot, dusty air and clean, cool bliss. It’s crucial to make sure you regularly replace your filter to keep it clean. A dirty or clogged filter will restrict air flow and cause your unit to malfunction. Studies have shown that dirty air filters can reduce your AC’s efficiency by up to 10%!
- Check Thermostat Batteries
We know, it can’t be that simple right? You’d be surprised! Sometimes the simplest solutions get overlooked, but this one can have a huge impact on your system’s performance.
- Check The Circuit Breaker
First locate you circuit breaker in the breaker box, then flip the switch on and off and see if your issue is fixed. Circuits can get messed up all the time so this can be a quick an easy fix if you know what to look for. If, however, you don’t notice any changes after flipping the switch, you might want to call an electrician to see if you have a more complex issue.
- Check The Coil On The Outside Of Your Machine
First, know where to find your condenser coil. Once you’ve found it, make sure that it’s not covered in debris or dust. If you find that it is, grab your hose and gently spray it down with water. A clean condenser coil is key to having an efficient AC unit.
