With the sudden transition to warmer weather, many New England residents are playing catchup with their air conditioning maintenance process. A majority of homeowners are simply blasting air conditioning, regardless of the costs (or if they even need to be doing so). Luckily, Robillard HVAC has the right air conditioning summer maintenance and preparation tips for you. Get started on saving money and staying cool this summer season.
Check for Signs of Malfunctioning
Since your air conditioning system has not been operating for multiple months, you will likely be unaware of any potential problems until it first clicks on this season. Some of the most common issues are frequent system cycling (turning off and on), unusual sounds, and poor cooling. If you notice any of these, get in contact with our team of experts. We can take care of your air conditioning summer maintenance, and get you ready for the upcoming season with ease.
Caring For Your Condenser
While many forget about their condenser, this is an important aspect of any HVAC maintenance process. First, you should take extra care to eliminate any plant, grass, and debris from around the unit itself. This breathing space will allow the condenser to perform better, allowing for proper airflow. Ideally, you should aim for a radius of around 4ft of open space. Beyond this, keeping the condenser in the shade can greatly benefit overall performance. By keeping the unit properly shaded, the unit doesn’t have to work as hard to cool things down.
Window & Door Options
Beyond just keeping doors and windows closed, there are a range of options to assist with your air conditioning summer maintenance process. Weatherizing these areas will eliminate any gaps and spaces in your home, reducing costs for cooling down your home. Additionally, window film will easily insulate your window and keep your home a bit cooler. These steps go a long way in giving your air conditioning system time to breathe and recover.
While your thermostat might be located in an easily accessible location, it could also be providing an inaccurate temperature. Check and see if your thermostat is directly exposed to sunlight, or even located near a window/light source. This will cause the temperature reading to be higher throughout the summer, leading to lower energy efficiency and your system overperforming. This inaccuracy can even be caused by other appliances.
With our air conditioning summer maintenance tips, you will be one step closer to maximizing the performance of your HVAC system. Keeping cool doesn’t have to be an expensive process, and with Robillard HVAC, your costs will remain low. Get in contact today to learn more about our HVAC services and maintenance options.
