It’s hard to imagine what we did before air conditioners became so commonplace. Summers in the Midlands are extremely hot and humid – so you want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to making sure your HVAC system is ready for the season.
If this is the year you need to replace your air conditioner, we’d love to help you. Here are some tips for purchasing, installing, and taking care of your air conditioners.
Even in May, the temperature can come close to unbearable. That’s why you should always start shopping for your air conditioner early. You will have plenty of time to compare the products and services, and you can make a purchase without the added stress of heat-induced urgency.
Always seek professional help when getting your air conditioner installed or serviced. Be sure to contact a licensed company so you can preserve your valuable warranty. Professional installation not only ensures your system works smoothly from the start, it’s also a good way to make sure you get the most energy-efficient service during its lifetime.
Constant use will wear any air conditioner out over the years – and your system may experience unnecessary wear and tear if it’s not located optimally. Increase your air conditioner’s life by placing it on a flat, dry, and shady surface. Consider a spot away from bedrooms and secluded enough that it isn’t visited too often. Make sure to clear an area of about two square foot around the air conditioner.
Educate yourself about the workings of your air conditioner. Ask the technician who is installing your machine about ways to use the equipment efficiently and safely. There’s a lot you can do to protect your system by giving it a healthy dose of preventative maintenance.
