General AC Maintenance
April 28, 2016
In the hot Texas weather, we can run our AC units pretty much around the clock, which means paying attention to common problems is crucial to making sure you maintain a healthy HVAC system. You should always have your system checked once a season but along with regular maintenance, these are a few things that you should consider when thinking about your air conditioning.
- When windows and doors throughout the home are open, it allows warm, humid air inside. Make sure that windows and doors are kept closed.
- Improperly installed central air can result in leaky air ducts or improper air flow. Pay attention to which rooms in your house are reaching the temperatures that you set. If you have uneven cooling it maybe the result of leaky ducts. Contact one of the professionals at Dean’s Shop to diagnose and solve this problem for you.
- Dirty filters and coils prevent your unit from functioning at its best. Check your air conditioner manual if you’re not sure exactly how to clean or replace the air filter, or call us or request service online.
- Check the condensate drain pipe on your unit to see if it’s clogged. The air conditioner manual will show you the location of the drain – if it does become obstructed with mildew, debris, or even small plants, water will back up into the unit itself and cause problems.
