School’s out for summer, which means that those Texas temperatures are rising. I know from personal experience that getting caught with a busted air conditioner in the middle of the summer heat is far from ideal (and also super sweaty). Fortunately, there are a few ways you can make sure your AC will be up and running when you need it most this summer. Here are a few tips from GO Heating, Air & Plumbing for a cooler summer.
Check & replace air filters regularly
Not only does a dusty or dirty filter not adequately filter the fresh air in your home, it also makes it harder for cool air to move through your vents. Depending on the size of your filter base, filters should be replaced every three-12 months to keep allergens and the temperature. low.
Keep your outside unit clean
Mud, dirt, even grass clippings, can cause an AC motor not to function properly, not to mention create higher electricity bills, due to longer run times. You can keep the outside of your unit clean by removing any debris like leaves or grass, or spraying the outside down with a water hose, but leave it to the professionals at GO Heating, Air & Plumbing to thoroughly clean the inside of your outdoor AC unit.
Schedule regular maintenance with HVAC professionals
Your HVAC system should be checked at regular intervals throughout the year to maintain proper and optimal operation. To facilitate this, the HVAC professionals at GO Heating, Air & Plumbing offer a GYM (GO Yearly Maintenance) Membership with three maintenance visits a year: one in the spring to check the AC, one in the fall to check the furnace, and another visit to check your home’s plumbing. A GYM Membership will catch any small problems before they become larger (and more expensive) ones.
Each GYM Membership visit includes:
HVAC (2 annual visits)
-Whole system inspection
-AC “heart” check (refrigerant pressures)
-Temperature difference (delta)
-Check the “lungs” (ductwork)
-Check for any safety issues
-Water wash of outdoor coil
PLUMBING (1 annual visit)
-Whole home water pressure check
-Camera inspection of sewer drains
-Check all faucets and valves
-”Detox” (flush) water heaters
-Check for leaks at water meter
