Homeowner Tips

1. Changing air filters: This is the most important thing a homeowner can do to ensure the proper performance and longevity of air conditioning and heating equipment. A clogged air filter restricts air flow. When airflow is restricted, the air conditioner won’t work properly, putting stress on the equipment. This shortens the life of the air conditioning and heating equipment. Furthermore, a dirty filter causes dirty air conditioning evaporator coils, which can be expensive to clean or replace.

2. Be careful when mowing around or near the air conditioning condenser. If the condenser is running, any dirt or grass that is stirred up around the unit will be sucked into the air conditioning coil. Turning off the AC unit while mowing will prevent this from happening. Additionally, do not blow any cut grass toward the unit, regardless of whether it’s running.

3. Install a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat will automatically adjust the temperature setting to account for periods when you are not home. For example, during the summer, you leave for work every morning at 7:15. The thermostat will self-adjust from 72 degrees to 80 degrees. This will allow the house to warm up while no one is at home, reducing the amount of time that your AC unit will run during the day. If you normally arrive home at 5:30 p.m., the thermostat will self-adjust again at 4:45 p .m. to 72 degrees to cool your house down upon your arrival.

4. Have your air conditioning and heating system inspected by a qualified technician bi-annually to keep your air conditioning system running at peak efficiency. An air conditioning system that is not properly charged will have longer run cycles which cause higher utility costs. Longer run cycles caused by poorly maintained AC systems shorten the life of the air conditioning equipment, causing expensive repairs and replacements.
