Getting Your HVAC/Air Conditioner Ready for Summer
It is such a great feeling when you can finally turn off the heater. However, you will need to turn on the air conditioner a few weeks later. Are you concerned about the massive summer energy bills that will be dropped in your mailbox? If energy costs are on your mind, you can start preparing your HVAC system for the summer. When you prepare your air conditioning unit for the summer months, you can prevent expensive HVAC malfunctions. Air conditioning units are usually the cause of poor indoor air quality. When your air conditioner is serviced, the system will not have an environment that is suitable for mold growth. A clean air conditioning unit may eliminate some offensive odors.
Inspect the Air Conditioner Filters
We can inspect and replace the filters. The filters are an important part of your air conditioning unit. They filter debris and regulate the air temperature. If the filters are dirty, pollen, debris, and dust will circulate throughout the room. A clogged filter will also cause the filter to work less efficiently. The energy bills will be higher when the air conditioning unit has to work harder. Clean filters will block dust, airborne pathogens, pollen and other particles that affect indoor air quality.
Inspect the Air Duct
Our technicians can look for obstructions in the ductwork. We will look for debris, and we will inspect the joints. Air duct cleaning is not always a necessity. We will recommend the best way to resolve indoor air quality problems. Our recommendations will save you money and give you peace of mind.
Remove Debris from the Exterior Unit
We can also remove debris from the exterior unit. There should be at least two feet of clear space. The air cannot flow freely if bushes are blocking the unit.
Examine the Condensation Removal System
Warm air can cause a condensation buildup in the cooling coil. We can test the switches, and we can use several condensation removal techniques.
