Spanish Fort Maintenance Tips
Although AC repairs and replacements will be needed eventually, you want to avoid them whenever possible. Our humid southern climate can put a strain on any system, making regular maintenance and upkeep especially important in Spanish Fort. Proper care will keep your system running in optimal condition for a longer period of time and save you money on costly repairs.
There are some things you can do between maintenance visits to extend the life of your HVAC system! They include:
Close windows and doors.
Think twice before you open those windows or exterior doors. You may want to enjoy the summer warmth, but opening your home causes your A/C to run overtime and puts a serious strain on your system.
Plug leaks in your attic, doors, and windows.
Gaps under windows and in the attic cause your home to lose a lot of climate-controlled air. Be sure that doors and windows are air-tight, and use our professional spray foam insulation in your attic to conserve and purify your air.
Don’t fluctuate the temperature.
When setting your thermostat, find a comfortable temperature and keep it there. Frequent changes in temperature will wear out your unit and lead to costly repairs and sooner replacement. If you need changing temperatures, such as wanting it extra cool when you sleep, consider an HVAC system with a programmable thermostat that allows you to create the perfect temperature according to your lifestyle.
Don’t crowd the condenser.
Keep plants, tree limbs, and other landscape items at least 2 feet away from your outdoor condenser. This will allow easier air movement and keep your unit from overworking.
Don’t Skip Preventative Maintenance.
While there are things you can check yourself, professional maintenance is a key part of keeping your HVAC system running smoothly. A professional AC contractor can clean the system, catch potential problems and extend the life of your air conditioner before they become costly.
