When temperatures climb this summer, you and your family will depend on your air conditioning system to keep you cool and comfortable indoors. Unexpected breakdowns can put a real damper on summertime fun. Scheduling regular maintenance with a professional Cypress air conditioning services company is your best protection against these mechanical failures. Here are some helpful hints for avoiding the most common air conditioning issues this summer.
Replace Your Air Filter
A dirty air filter can impede airflow through your HVAC system. This can cause it to work harder and to be more vulnerable to breakdowns. Worse yet, fibers from old filters can be drawn into the mechanical workings of your air conditioning system to cause serious damage to these moving parts. Replacing your air filter at least once a month or as recommended by the manufacturer can ensure the cleanest and freshest indoor air for you and your family while promoting greater longevity for your air conditioning system.
Upgrade Your Thermostat
Advances in home automation and thermostat technologies have made it easier than ever to enjoy lower utility bills and to manage wear and tear on your heating and cooling system. Upgrading to a new programmable thermostat can help you to manage indoor temperatures more effectively and can reduce the chance of a serious breakdown that could leave your family without the cool air you need to enjoy summer to the fullest.
Keep Outdoor Equipment Clean
One way to delay the need for a Cypress air conditioning replacement is to keep your outdoor fan and condenser coil area free of tall grass, debris, and other items that could block the free flow of air into and out of these vital HVAC components. By keeping these areas clear, you can significantly reduce the work needed to cool your home during hot summer days.
Install a Dehumidifier
Your air conditioning system is designed to remove some moisture from indoor air. If humidity levels rise too high, however, your system may not be able to remove enough of this moisture. This can result in increased wear and tear on your air conditioning unit and more frequent breakdowns. Installing a right-sized humidifier can allow your older air conditioning system to last longer and to perform more effectively in cooling your Cypress home.
