The entire nation currently lives indoors, away from the sweltering heat of the summer, in an effort to enjoy some cool air from the air conditioning unit that has been either installed in the window or as central air. Generally, a home has at least six different air filters that need to be inspected regularly to ensure they are functioning properly. Without these air filters and the air conditioning working properly, most homes become uncomfortable and downright grisly to stay in.
Comfort is King
Our society loves to enjoy the comforts of their home. When your air conditioner breaks down, though, the temperature begins to rise. This can, of course, be prevented by simply instilling a preventative maintenance routine well before any problems begin to arise.
If you are one of the many Americans who experience issues with dust or allergies, a stronger filter may need to be installed to ensure the quality of your air in the home is top-notch. An experienced HVAC expert can help select the correct filter for your system, ensure the entire system is clean and functioning properly, and even rejuvenate the air conditioner if it is aging.
Repairs You May Need
Just because summer has come to a conclusion does not mean the warm weather is out of sight for many. The temperatures remain high, and the air conditioner in your home may require repairs to continue functioning properly.
For most homes, these repairs include:
- Condenser Coil – The outdoor coil of your air conditioner may need to be cleaned after a long summer of use. The system may struggle if the coil has been bogged down with grime or dust.
- Refrigerant – Over time, the AC may lose its refrigerant through tiny leaks in the system. This actually puts the whole AC in jeopardy. A technician can recharge the refrigerant.
