There’s nothing better than relaxing in a cool home on a hot summer day. However, you need to make sure that your cooling equipment is ready for the hottest summer weather. Local cooling services provider W.E. Beavers Jr. Heating & Cooling shares tips to prep your AC system for the summer season.
Replace the Filters
One of the most important (and easiest) things you can do is to check your AC unit’s air filters. Replace them with new ones if needed. This should be done as recommended by the manufacturer to make sure that your AC system will be functioning optimally, without dust buildup inside your system.
Inspect the Ductwork
The ductwork distributes conditioned air throughout your home. Make sure to check for visible signs of damage, such as punctures or bent areas. If you notice that your home is not cooling well even if your AC is turned on, it’s possible that there may be problems with the ducts. Get in touch with your local contractor specializing in HVAC repairs and installations.
Update Your Thermostat
Technology evolves quickly, and that includes your HVAC system. Newer thermostats can help you regulate the temperature in your home better while saving money on your electric bills. Get rid of that outdated thermostat and replace it with a new programmable unit.
