With the end of the Central Florida summer rapidly approaching, Floridians may be breathing a sigh of relief. But the oppressive heat of the Florida sun doesn’t simply vanish on September 22. Air conditioning is needed to cool our homes all year round, and just because the worst time of the year happens to be over, doesn’t mean that you should neglect the upkeep of your AC system. You certanly can Keep Your AC Running This Autumn.
Here are three steps to ensure that your central air system will continue to function properly all through the autumn, and beyond.
Perhaps the most important measure you can take. Preventative maintenance allows you to have issues with your home’s AC fixed before problems arise. When your system goes down, it leads to sweaty uncomfortable hardship. Preventative maintenance gets out in front of potential issues, so that your comfort is never interrupted.
In the summer months, we run our air conditioning harder than at any other time. As such, wear and tear begins to take hold. Be proactive, and step out in front of potential problems before they become a disaster.
This is something you should be doing regularly. Changing your home’s air filter is a vital piece of the HVAC maintenance puzzle. We believe this is something that should be done on a monthly basis, and if it’s been a while, then you need to understand why this is so vital.
Changing the air filter improves the overall air quality in your home. As the filter takes in dirt, dust and debris, it becomes far less efficient at blocking harmful bacteria from entering the house. Also, regularly changing the filter will increase the life span of your AC system. One bit of monthly upkeep could add years to the entire system.
Were you content with the job your AC system did in keeping your home cool this summer? Were there issues? Is it aging poorly? If so, then it might be time for an upgrade. Modern equipment, such as the TRANE products offered by AJ’s Air can prove more efficient, and last longer than outdated technology.
