Texas Heat Wave: A/C Checks


Let’s be honest, it is getting pretty hot in Texas this summer.

How is anyone to escape this heat?

An air conditioning unit WILL FAIL at the most inopportune moment in your life; so service and maintenance of a unit is crucial, in-order to avoid an emergency service call. Follow these tips to prolong the life of your unit:

  • Never wash the cooling coils with unfiltered water. Many homeowners will spray their A/C units with a hose to wash the coils — this is not recommended, as this can damage the coils with both the water-pressure and the particulates inherent-in the water.
  • Never set objects or trash near your A/C. These will constrict the airflow into the intake of your unit, and cause the motor to work much harder. This will effect the lifespan of the entire unit.
  • Always set a schedule to vacuum-out ducts and vents for the home-wide A/C system, once every three months.

*Whenever you notice that your A/C system is lagging, or not performing properly, call a service technician immediately… it will only get progressively-worse.

Wearing camouflage might seem like something that should be done only for hunting, but it also works well with fishing. Although fish can not see well, they can see colors, and you can easily scare them if you are wearing bright clothing. Wear earth tones.

Don’t blind the fish! While shiny lures are often very effective at attracting specific species, the reflection of the sun can blind a fish and send it swimming away. Matte lures can be equally as effective while they won’t scare off as many fish as a metallic lure would, so consider using both when you fish.

If you are fishing in a stream or river, cast upstream and allow the natural current in the water carry your lure or bait into the fishing hole. This creates a more natural appearance, increasing your chance of a fish hitting on it. Ensure that you don’t have a lot of slack in the water.

When you are choosing your fishing rod, be sure the eyelets that hold the line are smooth. They should not have any kind of abrasive feel. Any roughness with the line could cause it to weaken or to snap at that vital point when you have caught that big fish.

As was stated from the above article, fishing is a fun and very popular hobby. Just a little knowledge and experience can make all the difference in the success of your next fishing trip. Add to your fishing knowledge with the help of the tips and techniques from the article above.
