3 Things Homeowners Should Know About Their Air Conditioning System
Air conditioners are life savers when they are maintained and working well. Homeowners don’t need to be air conditioning specialists to enjoy the cool air, but it doesn’t hurt to know a few things that could help you keep your system running smoothly throughout the Texas summer. The following are a few notes to keep in mind:
1. Your Filter Should Be Changed RegularlyThe filters in your air conditioning system should be replaced or cleaned at least once a month. If you own a commercial building that is particularly dusty or dirty, you may want to change them more frequently. A clean filter will make the air quality better and will also increase energy efficiency as the system will not have to work as hard to push air out.
2. Electrical Problems Account for Many FailuresMore often than you think, a system failure is due to an electrical problem. When your system fails, leave the electrical work to the professionals. It could be a blown fuse, a blown capacitor, a tripped breaker, or another electrical problem, and a professional is best equipped to deal with those things.
3. You Do not Have to Run the System All DayThere are things you can do to keep from running your air conditioning system all day. For example, on a cool morning, crack the windows open instead of turning on your AC. When the sun goes down in the evening, crack the windows open again. This does not just let the cool night air in, it also allows the hot air to get out.
You also have the option of using the ceiling fan and other types of fans to cool your building. If your windows have curtains or blinds, make sure those are closed during the hours that the sun is shining directly into those particular windows.
