How to get the most out of your air conditioning system
During Summer months when the temperature is soaring, your air conditioning system is a serious godsend. When the weather is cooler, during Winter, you might forget about the importance of this handy piece of equipment, simply because you don’t need to use it and lets be honest, some of us do have short memories, but this is the ideal time to test it out, get it in good working order, and replace any parts that may not be functioning correctly, ready for summer.
If you do need an electrician to fix your system, then let’s face it, the cooler months are going to be when it’s easier to find someone to come to you quickly, and possibly cheaper, but aside from that, there are some things you can do to get the most out of your air conditioning system, and make it more likely to work effectively when you need it most.
Take a look at our top five tips:
Test it early – We mentioned before that the winter months are the ideal time to check your system, to identify any problems and sort them out in good time, and beat the summer heat;
Regular maintenance – When your air conditioning system is working flat out to keep you and your family cool, the filter will get clogged up quickly, so check it and clean or replace it monthly. You also need to check the dust grates and evaporator coils on a regular basis also;
Consider upgrading – Like most electrical items, older models cost more in the long-run, whereas the newer models are more energy efficient. If your air conditioning system is over ten years old, maybe it’s time for an upgrade;
Make use of the programmable thermostat – Set the timer perfectly so that the cool air is kicking in just before you get home or to work so the house or office is already starting to cool before you even enter;
Take care of air leaks – It’s no good having air conditioning if all the cool air is escaping through gaps in your insulation. Seal around windows and doors and keep them closed when the air conditioning is working its magic.
Your air conditioning system is the one piece of equipment that you will probably not want to be without during the hot summer months, whether it’s to help you sleep comfortably, do your hair without major frizz, or simply to sit and watch TV without feeling like you’re going to melt away. Look after it, and in turn, it will look after you.
