Summer is right around the corner! It’s important to keep up with AC maintenance and ensure that your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. Here are some tips and tricks to keep your family cool and comfortable all summer long.
1. Change Your Air Filters
Changing your air filters is one of the easiest HVAC maintenance tasks to keep your system in check. There are also many benefits to changing your air filters regularly. Including:
- Improved Indoor Air Quality
- Improved HVAC System Efficiency
- Health and Seasonal Allergy Relief
- Extended Life of your System
2. Be aware of the landscaping aroung your AC outdoor unit
Landscaping around your AC unit is the best way to hide it from view. But there’s a right way and a wrong way to do this. Here are some tips for you to follow when you do.
Try to keep plants at least two feet away. If plants are any closer than this, the airflow will be obstructed resulting in more repairs and less energy efficiency. You can create a windbreak with evergreen plants. This helps to protect your air conditioner from severe weather conditions.
3. Install a programmable thermostat
One big benefit to installing a programmable thermostat is that it will save you money on your energy bills. You can save money by adjusting your thermostat to run less or even off while you’re away or sleeping. A programmable thermostat allows for increased comfort, by automatically adjusting your temperature so you don’t have to.
These smart thermostats have advanced technology features that allows you to have complete control of your HVAC system. You can control your temperature and humidity from anywhere by having the compatible app on your phone. You can connect your thermostat to an Alexa or similar smart home device for easy monitoring.
