Beat the Summer Heat
Summer is here, and if you’re like most people in the greater St. Charles, MO area, you’ve turned on your air conditioner to keep it cool indoors. Like all pieces of equipment, air conditioners run more efficiently in optimal conditions.
What can you to do make sure your AC is running smoothly?
You should make sure your air conditioner gets an annual tune up in the spring, but it’s not too late! A tune up can include tightening all electrical connections, checking the wiring, lubricating fans, and cleaning the system. You will also need to check the coolant levels. Having a professional inspect your unit in detail can help avoid problems during the busy summers.
Another important step to keeping your air conditioning working is simply keeping it clean! Make sure to check your air filter. Make sure to change your filter regularly.
You should also take the time to clean your ductwork. When the air conditioner turns on, fine particulates drift into the home and can lower your indoor air quality. This is also what goes back to your air filter. Have your airducts professionally cleaned to make your system be more energy efficient. Ductwork can also be leaky. Loose joints or damaged sections can allow cooler air to escape into unoccupied areas of your home.
