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.
