The hottest month of the year has arrived, making this our busiest season at Will Air! Air conditioners always tend to break down during July, when the sun shines its brightest. In addition to having routine maintenanceperformed, there are a few things you can do around the house to help prevent an untimely air conditioner malfunction during the time of year it will be working its hardest.
Keep an Eye Out for Ice
If you start to notice water freezing around your air conditioning unit, you can assume that issues are beginning to develop. Causes of freezing include dirty filters, refrigerant leaks or a malfunctioning fan. Luckily, if you are noticing freezing, your HVAC technician will be able to diagnose and fix the root of the issue during their next visit.
Keeping Cool Air in the House
By making a conscious effort to keep cool air in the house, we’re able to reduce wear and tear on our air conditioners. Adding insulation to your home, along with caulking can keep your home several degrees cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. You can also consider keeping curtains semi-closed on the hottest days of the year to keep out as much solar energy as possible.
Check Your Air Filter
Because your air conditioner will be working more than usual this month, it will become dirtier quicker as well. This can hinder our air conditioners, but more importantly, it can drastically lower the air quality of our homes. Air conditioning filters play a key role in removing dust and allergens from our home’s air, so be sure to keep up with the recommended replacement schedule for yours or clean it regularly.
