An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
And a visit a year keeps your air conditioner clear.
Yearly Cincinnati Air Conditioning Service
Having a professional HVAC consultant visit your home once a year for air conditioning maintenance repairs is a smart move. Here in Cincinnati, HVAC units withstand a lot of wear and tear. A simple visit can extend the life of your system, prevent massive breakdowns, provide better cool ac air, and lower your energy bills.
On the other 364 days of each year, though, there are other steps you can take to help keep your air conditioning running smoothly and efficiently. Here are three big ones:
1. To let your air compressor and condenser work best, keep two feet of clear space around them. This is the outside part of your unit, near the foundation of your house. Getting any vegetation away from it – leaves, branches, weeds, high-growing grass, etc. – will help this part of your system run well.
2. Be sure to use natural means to keep the sun from overheating your house. Close your blinds and curtains during the sunlight hours, and consider putting in awnings to keep the hottest solar rays off of your south-facing windows.
3. Don’t shut interior doors. When you close these doors entirely, there is less airflow in the home as a whole. This can make your central AC system shift out of balance, and makes it think it needs to work harder. Keeping most doors at least slightly open will prevent this blockage of airflow.
