What You Need to Know About Your AC

When you know how something works, that’s when you get most out of it. When it comes to your HVAC system, you get the most efficiency out of it by knowing certain things about it. Here’s what you need to know about your AC to use it successfully.

How to Change the Air Filter

Changing your air filter is essential to helping your AC function properly. You need to know what kind of filter you’re using, how often to change it, and how to physically change it.

How to Fix Leaks

Air leaks have a seriously negative effect on your AC’s efficiency, so you need to know how to spot and fix them. This can be done several ways, but the best way to detect and fix them is by having an HVAC expert check your system out.

How to Use a Timer

There is no reason to have your AC running when no one is home. Whether you use a programmable thermostat or a timer, setting specific time periods for your AC to be on and off can help lower your bills and save energy.

How to Maintain Your Unit

Even when it’s brand new, no unit stays perfect on its own. You need to know how to clean your unit, spot problems, and replace specific parts to keep your unit functioning well.

How to Keep Your AC Cool

If your AC is in a spot where the sun is constantly shining on it, it’s going to have a hard time running efficiently. That’s why it’s important to keep your blinds shut and your unit out of the sunlight as much as possible.
