You might have already geared up your air conditioning system for the summer months, but in order to keep up maximum performance, you’ll need to take care of it during the summer.
Keeping the area of your outside until clear should be top priority. Making sure there are no weeds and debris helps to keep the condenser unit clear. The condenser coils can become clogged with dirt, so cleaning them is essential to maintenance. You can do this with a gentle wash with a garden hose, making sure your unit is switched off.
Keeping the indoor vents clear is vital for allowing cool air to flow into your home. Dust usually builds up around the outside of the vents, and you can brush this off with a duster. Always make sure to keep vents clear from obstructions such as furniture, toys and drapes. Changing the air filter at the beginning of each season is recommended. It reduces air particle that can enter your home via the ducts. Make sure that you check this monthly, depending on the type of a/c system that you have installed. By programming thermostat you can control how much a/c you’re using. Working out when you need to adjust the temperature can be pivotal to an efficient system.
These steps will help you to maintain a cool home throughout the summer, especially in the Quad Cities.
