They say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, which applies to your comfort when managing your HVAC system. The summertime is very hot in St. Augustine. There are a few common air conditioner problems that can cause you summertime stress. Here’s why spring AC maintenance is so important to enhance cooling efficiency and indoor air quality:
Increase Efficiency for Your System
One of the most impactful forms of preventative maintenance is a check by an HVAC professional. When an HVAC professional comes to your home, they will check refrigerant levels, clean or replace the air filter and make an operational assessment of the system. This ensures that all components are in working order so that air can pass through the system with ease.
This helps the motor maintain longevity, and you’ll need less energy for cooling. You’ll find that your energy bills will be lower during the warmer months because the system will be more efficient.
Clean Filters Help Improve Indoor Air Quality
A simple step to improve indoor air quality is to clean or change the filter. Doing so will ensure that no particles or dust accumulate within the HVAC system. By replacing the filter, you’ll prevent blockages that could propel allergens into your home. You should aim to change the air filter in your air conditioner every month.
Stay a Step Ahead of the Rush
Summer is a busy time for most HVAC professionals. If you wait for the summer, you may have a harder time setting up an appointment. You can avoid this by scheduling maintenance when the weather is mild. Having your service technician take a look at your system also allows them to determine if there are issues that could impact your summer cooling.
