Now that the weather is getting warmer, you’ll probably be getting ready to start using your A/C if you haven’t done so already. If you’ve already completed your HVAC maintenance for the season, congratulations! Your summer is off to a great start. If your HVAC unit is giving you trouble, and you’ve noticed the following problems, it may be time to call in a professional.
A/C Refrigerant Leaks
When it’s a scorcher outside, your A/C unit will be forced to work overtime. Leaks in refrigerant lines will cause your air to blow warmer. Ignoring the problem won’t help your A/C get any cooler and will leave you with wasted energy and a larger bill. Don’t try to fix a refrigerant leak on your own. Contact a professional to save you from any further headaches.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Summer is notorious for bad indoor air quality. If your HVAC system isn’t running properly, you could be inviting in pollen and other allergens. A simple air filter change to your A/C unit can make all the difference in keeping the air in your home allergen-free.
High Energy Bills
Running your A/C and other appliances that get more use during the summer can be an energy killer and wallet snatcher. If your HVAC unit is up to snuff, you’ve put yourself in great shape in keeping your energy costs to a minimum. Try these other quick tips to lower your energy bills this summer:
- Turn on the ceiling fan on days where you may not have to use your A/C.
- Turn the thermostat up and set your A/C to 5 degrees warmer and save up to 20% on your home cooling bill. If your thermostat is acting up, it may need to be calibrated.
- Turn down your water heater to 120 degrees.
