You may be ready for warmer weather, but is your air conditioning unit? The scorching heat of a Texas summer means it’s going to be getting a workout. Some preventive maintenance can keep it from being overworked so it will function better. To help you stay cool and your air conditioning unit stay happy, here are a few simple tips from your friends at Kleen Air, provider of air conditioning services in Dallas, TX.
First, make sure you’re changing the filters often enough. You should check them every month to be sure they aren’t clogged. Clogged filters slow the airflow through the blower unit and could cause the cooling coil to ice up, which could in turn stop your air conditioning unit from working. Be aware that allergen-reducing filters need to be changed more frequently.
Next, make sure the condenser unit has a couple feet of space around it and isn’t being strangled by shrubs or grass. Clean the condenser fan of any debris that might be sticking to it and impeding the air flow. You can use a garden hose to do this.
Check the registers and ducts inside your house. Clean them off, move anything that’s blocking them, and then take a look inside at the ducts. Look for any gaps or leaks in them. Also check their appearance — if they are very dirty or if you see mold or mildew growing in them, it’s time to get them cleaned. Our air conditioning service in Dallas, TX provides duct cleaning to thoroughly scrub your air conditioning ducts and make sure pollutants, dust mites, mold and mildew aren’t being blown into the air you’re breathing.
Last, turn on your air conditioning unit to make sure it is working well before hot weather hits. If it needs repair or professional maintenance, it’s better to call for air conditioning services as soon as you can to avoid an emergency later when it’s too hot to go without air conditioning.
