Maintain and sustain your AC
Summertime in Texas, just like winter storms, can put a lot of pressure on people and the HVAC. Here are a few simple tips on how to maintain and sustain your AC in hot Plano, Texas weather.
Did you know?
Texas’s position at the northwestern end of the Gulf of Mexico makes it vulnerable to hurricanes. Some of the most destructive hurricanes in U.S. history have impacted Texas. A hurricane in 1875 killed approximately 400 people in Indianola, followed by another hurricane in 1886 that destroyed the town, which was at the time the most important port city in the state. This allowed Galveston to take over as the chief port city, but it was subsequently devastated by a hurricane in 1900 that killed approximately 8,000 people (possibly as many as 12,000), making it the deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history. Other devastating Texan hurricanes include the 1915 Galveston Hurricane, Hurricane Carla in 1961, Hurricane Beulah in 1967, Hurricane Alicia in 1983, Hurricane Rita in 2005, Hurricane Ike in 2008 and Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
Check the Filter & Clean or Replace It as Needed
Can’t go wrong on this one. Just like your car, a new filter is needed from time to time. Making sure a new filter is available in summer can go long way. Well, it depends on your AC: one month, 3, or more. The thickness of the filter may determine how often you have to replace it.
A new filter means better airflow, cleaner air, and less pressure on AC to maintain the airflow.
Unclog Dirty Vents
Just like water flow in house pipes, AC does not work well when there are obstructions to the airflow. Five minutes of close attention can go long way in preventing possible issues with your AC. While AC machines can work hard for a very long time, why not help them work even longer?
Schedule AC Tune-Up
Probably the best preventive maintenance option is simply to have an AC professional take a look and make sure your system is set up in the best possible way, providing enough unobstructed air to you and your home. Dragon Air Services technicians are trained and licensed to help you with inspecting AC, and answering your questions.
Just having a professional answering your AC questions, all around Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, can just give you peace of mind and working AC.
Rain, snow, ice, and all weather elements may create quite a bit of mess around your AC. Flying pieces of trash can lodge themselves inside your AC system.
Simple inspections around your AC system and clearing debris and smaller elements can go long way in preventing any possible issues.
Upgrading Your AC
Sometimes upgrading your AC may be your best option, because maintaining or repairing it may be more costly in a long run. Declined air quality over time may make your home uncomfortable and airflow may be uneven. If your AC system is over 10 years old, maintaining it is very important in order to prevent expensive AC replacement.
