With spring in progress and summer fast approaching, it’s time to prepare all parts of our lives for the hotter weather, and that includes our homes. It may not be time to use your air conditioner just yet, but you should still be contemplating how you will stay cool this season in Georgetown. The greatest way to ensure that you will have a cozy summer is by switching on your system now, before it gets too hot and you discover that you need air conditioner repairs. Here are a few pieces of advice to ensure your system, and your house, is properly equipped for the heat:
Try it out now!
It really is important to give your system a trial run as soon as you can. You don’t want your air conditioner to break down on the warmest day of the year and make your home grossly warm. So, setting your thermostat to its cooling mode and allowing it to run, even for a few minutes, will be an excellent trial run that can save you a lot of future trouble. Ensure that cool air is blowing into your home, and if it’s not, here are a couple of things to examine before calling the experts at Miller Climate Control LLC:
- Make sure your system was set to cool. It’s a simple mistake and one that is made regularly, but if you haven’t flipped your thermostat from the heat setting, cool air won’t be flowing. Simple issue, uncomplicated solution!
- Check the unit outside. Verify to see if there are any barriers around your system, such as items or dirt, that can clog your air flow and cool air production.
- Change your filters. As you’ve heard before, this step is crucial to improving the functionality of your air conditioning system. With fresh and new filters, your cool air will be cleaner and it will create an easier environment for air to flow through.
Once you’ve tried things out – your system is set to cool, and the unit and filters are clean – and you still aren’t feeling any cool air, it’s time to call in the professionals if there are problems. Annual air conditioner service should be on your radar this time of the year nonetheless, so now is the best time to check up on every piece of your system before the new season hits. The specialists at Miller Climate Control LLC will not only solve the current problem at hand, but they will also address any small possible future issues that could turn into bigger concerns later.
Chances are that if your home isn’t cooling effortlessly, your system might be deficient in refrigerant based on low levels or perhaps a leak. If you noted that ice was forming when you inspected your outdoor unit, that may be an indicator that you need more refrigerant. Throughout an air conditioner maintenance check, our specialists can deal with any leaks in your lines or refrigerant shortages.
Everyone depends on their air conditioner to get them through the summer and it can be easy to ignore how important your system is to your summer comfort. Don’t worry about your air conditioner breaking down and instead, be preemptive about testing and servicing your system before the heat wave hits.
