It’s Almost Summer – Get Ready For The Summer Heat

May 16,2017 Blog

It is that time of year again, almost SUMMER! Now is time to shift your attention to you’re a/c system. Even though we live in the Dayton area and we can have 4 seasons in one day you want to make sure you are ready for the hot days that we have in the Miami-Valley. Even though you believe that it isn’t hot enough for the air conditioner to be turned on it is actually the perfect time to have it serviced.

Keep Your Performance High

Your air conditioner has collected dust, leaves and other debris that degrade its performance, or interior parts might have deteriorated. In fact, AC units lose about 5% of their efficiency each year if they aren’t properly maintained, according to the manufactures. Before you perform any service on your air conditioner, make sure you shut off the power through your circuit breaker and special disconnect box next to the unit.

Maintenance You Can Do Yourself

  • Change your filter
  • Clean off your vents of any debris or pet hair
  • Spray the a/c unit with a hose and clean it off
  • Make sure your pets do not pee on your outdoor unit. The acid in their urine can cause damage to the unit.

Let the Experts Lend a Hand

Inside the main outdoor unit, also known as the condenser may need cleaning as well. One of our qualified HVAC technicians can remove the panels, clean the unit and ensure all parts are in safe working order. If there are any problems within the sealed refrigeration component, for example, that is definitely not a DIY job. A good technician will:

  • Test all the electrical components of the unit
  • Give the motor a test run
  • Make sure the thermostat is functioning properly
  • Inspect the coils, capacitors, contactors and other parts
