Having a malfunctioning A/C in the summer is frustrating. It can compromise not only your budget but also your comfort and safety. Stay on top of your A/C maintenance with these top 5 summer HVAC tips.
Check the Wiring
It is essential to regularly check your HVAC system’s wiring to ensure your system’s operational efficiency and your safety. To check the wiring, you need to turn off the system and open the access panel. If you spot any wires that look burned or blackened, then that is a sign to call in a professional.
Replace the Air Filter
Your air filter needs to be replaced every one to three months, depending on how frequent your cooling system is being used. If you never thought of changing the filter at the end of the prior summer, then that means now is the best time to check and replace it.
Check the Condenser Unit Fan
Your condenser unit’s fan can get damaged when it is overly exposed to debris and other outdoor elements. Once damaged, it can cause additional problems, such as noisy operation, reduced efficiency, and early system breakdown. If you suspect that there’s something wrong with your outdoor condenser fan, call the experts right away.
Clean the Condenser
Dirt, leaves, grass, and other debris can easily get into your outside condenser unit and jeopardize its operation. If left unattended, then it will obstruct proper airflow, forcing your cooling system to work harder than it should and eventually causing you to spend money on repairs. We advise that you clean your condenser regularly.
