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.
