Staying cool in the summer isn’t an option– it’s a priority. And if you’re like the thousands of folks that will be running their A/C nonstop this summer, it pays to know a few tips that can make sure your HVAC unit operates as efficiently as possible. When it comes to staying cool this summer, the Superior Mechanical HVAC team knows a few things that’ll keep your A/C running as cool and collected as it should be. Check out these summer HVAC tips, and make your summer a breeze!

Keep cool this summer by monitoring your air filters

Sometimes, the biggest problems can be solved with the simplest fixes. When it comes to keeping your HVAC system in tip top shape during the hotter days, there’s no easier way to fix a host of problems than by checking and changing your air filter often. When your heating and cooling system is clogged with debris, it’s that much harder to get efficient air flow. Additionally, even if your HVAC is able to pump cool air into your home, the dust and allergens that have accumulated in and around your air filters and other HVAC equipment can put a drain on the overall system and reduce output. The summer months are bad enough for allergy sufferers– so there’s no need to make things any worse by potential pumping dust and allergens into your house because of dirty filters! Our HVAC experts are all equipped with the tools required to assess the quality of your air filter, and the process only takes a few minutes.

Check your HVAC system for leaks

Summer A/C bills can already be pricier than the rest of the year, so it’s important to ensure that your HVAC system is running as efficiently as it can be. Aside from monitoring your air filters this summer, another great tip is to check your HVAC system for leaks once every thirty days or so. While we recommend having a professional fix any leaks you may find, eyeballing your HVAC system for refrigerant leaks this summer can save you both the headache of having warm air blow into your home and potentially thousands of dollars on a new system. Three places your refrigerant can commonly leak from include the line sets, the condenser coils, and the evaporator coils.

Use indoor fans to make your HVAC system more efficient

You can also make it easier to stay cool and comfortable during the summer months by employing the use of fans to more evenly disperse the cool air from your HVAC system. Fans usually have two rotation settings: clockwise, to push air downward, and counter-clockwise, to dispel air upwards. Setting your fans to rotate clockwise can help make sure cool air circulates more effectively, which means a cooler home and an HVAC system that doesn’t have to work as hard to consistently keep things cool! The best part about fans? They’re about as cheap as can be! By using this simple fan tip to help make your HVAC system more efficient in the summer, you’ll have both an awesome and cheap way to stay cool.

Always schedule preventative maintenance ahead of time

Our last tip for keeping your HVAC system in top shape this summer is perhaps even simpler than cleaning your air filter. It’s scheduling preventative maintenance. Since HVAC companies can get busy during the summer, scheduling maintenance in the spring, before problems arise is a great way to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency when you need it the most. Preventative maintenance for your HVAC system can include things like regularly replacing your air filter (even if there doesn’t appear to be anything wrong with it), clearing the area around your filter to make sure debris can’t get easily trapped, and testing the quality of both your cool air and heat over the course of all four seasons. Here at Superior Mechanical, our team is always a phone call away– and appointments take just a few seconds to make.

Keeping cool this summer is possible– and all it takes is following a few simple tips in maintaining your HVAC system!
