5 Things To Do When Your AC Goes Out
That summer heat is now in full effect and it seems like it won’t be stopping anytime soon. Now would be the perfect time to make sure that your AC is performing at the top of it’s game. Check out the following tips to see if you can do something to get the most out of your AC this summer.
- Check Your Air Filter
Air filters are what separates the hot, dusty air, from clean, cool bliss. It’s very important that you keep track of when you last replaced your air filter so you can coordinate getting a new one to keep your system clean. Having a clogged filter can block air flow and cause your system to malfunction, some studies have shown that this block in air flow can lower your AC’s efficiency by up to 10%.
- Check Thermostat Batteries
We know, it can’t be that simple right? You’d be surprised! Sometimes the simplest solutions get overlooked, but this one can have a huge impact on your system’s performance.
- Check The Circuit Breaker
It’s common for circuits to get tripped or messed up, so this can be an easy fix if you know what to look for. Simply find you circuit breaker in the breaker box and flip the switch in the opposite position. If you don’t notice any changes you might need to call an electrician as this would be a much more serious issue.
- Check The Coil On The Outside Of Your Machine
First, know where to find your condenser coil. Once you’ve found it, make sure that it’s not covered in debris or dust. If you find that it is, grab your hose and gently spray it down with water. A clean condenser coil is key to having an efficient AC unit.
