Living in North Texas can pose a serious problem during the summer in regards to staying cool and comfortable. One of your best friends during this time is an air conditioning system that is operating as efficiently as possible. If you have ever been the victim of a faulty air conditioning unit during the summer heat in Texas, you know how important it is to make sure everything is working in advance of the Texas heat showing up.
Maintaining your system on a regular basis is the best way to prepare for the summer. Everyone knows that changing the air filter is must on a monthly basis. Just doing this simple act can save your system wear and tear during normal operation and allow for optimal efficiency during the grueling months of July and August. Not changing your filters on a regular basis can lead to long-term damage to your unit ultimately costing you more money.
A clean duct system not only increases the quality of the air that your unit is circulating, but also allows the air to flow to each room as it was originally designed to do. Obstructions in ducting can cause one area of your home or commercial facility to stay uncomfortable due to the lack of adequate airflow.
The outside condenser unit is an integral piece to keeping your air conditioning system functioning properly. You may not give it a second thought because it sits outside your house and you may rarely see it. The unit should not be obstructed by any debris or foliage allowing proper air flow through the unit to keep it cool and functional during the summer. A good rule of thumb is to allow two feet from any objects to ensure the unit is operating as efficiently as possible.
Unfortunately, regardless of how well you regularly maintain your HVAC system throughout the year, units do have a life expectancy and can fail during the dog days of summer.
