Summer is here in full swing throughout the country. Families are enjoying all of the amazing parts of summer every day. All of the fun that you have this summer will make fond memories for you to look back on for years to come. Without a functioning air conditioner though, the activities that you have planned will not be nearly as enjoyable. Many of our customers here at Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning are interested in what they can do to keep their air conditioning unit working properly this summer. They are concerned about doing something on accident that will damage their unit. We want to address some of the things that can ruin your air conditioning that you may not realize you are doing.
Change Air Filters
One of the largest mistakes that people make with their air conditioning unit is not changing their air filters on a regular basis. Air filters are required to help your air conditioning unit work properly. The purpose of the air filters is to keep dirt and air pollutants from entering into your home with the cooled air that your air conditioning unit sends into your home to keep your home comfortable. If your air filters are dirty they will not be able to filter out the dirt and other pollutants. You will want to check the manufacturer’s recommendations for how often you should you change your air filters.
Don’t Let Air Conditioner Run Constantly to Cool Your House
Your air conditioning unit will run as often as it needs to in order to keep your home at the temperature that your thermostat is set to. When it is extremely hot outside your air conditioning unit will need to run frequently to keep your home cool. Many homeowners do not think about how much their unit is running and fail to notice that their unit is running almost constantly. Any appliance that runs constantly is bound to break sooner than necessary. There are a few things that you will want to do to avoid having your air conditioner run incessantly. You will want to close your blinds, turn your thermostat up a few degrees when you are not home, and keep your doors and windows closed as much as possible.
Don’t Ignore AC Problems
Everyone knows that sometimes appliances need repairs done. If you are paying attention there are typically signs that your appliances are having some issues. Your air conditioning unit is no different. Before your air conditioning unit breaks there are signs that you could catch by having Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning come out and perform a routine maintenance call on your unit. We can come out and check your unit for any issues and help with small repairs before larger repairs are needed.
