5 Ways to Get Your HVAC Air Conditioning Ready for Cooling
Choosing HVAC air conditioning for your home is a great way to invest in your indoor comfort. During the cooler periods of the year, we tend to forget about our HVAC equipment, and it’s important to get it ready for peak cooling periods. Also, if you can get your HVAC system to complement your home, you could even save money on your energy bills. Let’s take a look at five ways that you can get your HVAC system ready for this summer.
Check the Air Filter:
The air filter is vitally important for the correct and efficient operation of your HVAC system. If your system uses a disposable air filter, it’s a good idea to change it for a new one. An air filter should be changed at least once per month for the best performance. Some air filters are washable, and they need to be cleaned monthly to keep them working well. If there is a heavy smoker in your home or pets, you may need to change or clean your air filters more often. Keeping the air filter clean will help your system to circulate the treated home throughout your home.
Check the Outdoor Unit:
If you have an external unit as part of your HVAC setup, it’s a good idea to go outside and examine it. The unit outside needs to be free of any obstructions and debris that can interfere with the unit. This includes plant, shrubs and tree branches that have grown over and neat the unit. Then you need to clean the unit interior and clear away any dead leaves, debris and dirt.
Choose a Programmable Thermostat:
Installing a programmable thermostat is a great way to lower your energy bills for the summer. You can schedule your air conditioning when you’re away from home and adapt it later if required. This will ensure that your home is cool when you return home whilst using the minimum amount of energy.
Clean the Vents:
The HVAC system works best when the air can flow freely through your home. The airflow is distributed through the home via the vents and ducts. Examine your vents and make sure that they are free from any obvious blockages, debris, and dust. Open up all the vents where you want to deliver the treated air, and this will ensure that you get an even amount of cooling in the home.
Consider Upgrading to a Newer System:
Once you’ve carried out these tips, try the system and check that everything is working correctly. If you notice that the level of cooling is not as good as last year or that the system isn’t working correctly, call out a local professional. When the system is not performing well, it’s a sign that there is a problem and this will not improve without expert attention. It may be possible to fix the problem, or it may even be time to upgrade to a newer and more efficient system.
