With summer heat quickly approaching, now is the time to make sure that your Air Conditioner is prepared to keep up with the increasing temperatures. Oftentimes, your Air Conditioner works long hours throughout the summer, which can equate to higher energy bills and higher chances of machine breakdown. If your system is not properly equipped to handle the increased workload, this could cause potential damage to your unit, with possible costly repairs. Operating a dirty unit can also cause unnecessary loss of efficiency and damage the unit itself. In addition to having a qualified HVAC technician at an established HVAC company, such as General Air, check the preparedness of your Air Conditioner, there are a few things that homeowners can do as well.
- Replace indoor filters monthly
- Clean the blower
- Reduce clutter in the attic to maintain proper ventilation
- Trim brush and shrubbery near outdoor units to prevent airflow obstruction
- Remove grass clippings, leaves, and other debris from outdoor coil
If you believe you are having a problem with your HVAC system, General Air is fully equipped to provide accurate assessments and recommendations, with full-service technicians to meet your repair or replacement needs. It is important to get your unit checked as soon as you notice a problem, so do not hesitate to contact General Air to get your heating and air systems operating smoothly again in no time.
