Welcome back to Sun Heating and Cooling’s “kitchen,” where we cook the perfect recipe for a comfortable and relaxing summer.
Today, we will share our not-so-secret recipe for a perfectly running A/C unit, which we lovingly call the “A/C Soufflé.” Like a traditional soufflé, this recipe requires attention and care, but we promise it’s worth it! So, let’s dive into our scrumptious HVAC creation, and here are the ingredients you’ll need:
- One well-maintained A/C unit
- A pinch of preventative maintenance
- A generous portion of air filter changes
- A dollop of professional HVAC technician checkups
1. Preheat your home: Ensure your A/C unit is turned off before starting. You want to start with a clean slate to accurately assess your A/C’s performance.
2. Mix in preventative maintenance: Begin by visually inspecting your outdoor A/C unit. Remove any debris that may have accumulated around it, such as leaves or twigs. Ensure enough clearance on all sides of the unit for proper airflow.
3. Fold-in air filter changes: Locate your air filter (usually found in your HVAC system’s return air duct or the blower compartment) and replace it with a new one. We recommend changing your air filter every 1-3 months, depending on your household’s specific needs. A clean air filter helps maintain healthy indoor air quality and allows your A/C to operate more efficiently.
4. Stir in a dollop of professional HVAC technician checkups: To make sure your A/C works to perfection, it’s crucial to enlist the help of a professional Sun Heating and Cooling technician.
5. Garnish with energy-saving tips: For that extra cool comfort, garnish with more energy-saving tips. Close blinds and curtains on sunny days to keep the heat out, use ceiling fans to circulate cool air, and set your thermostat to a higher temperature when you’re not home. These little touches can greatly affect your home’s comfort and energy bill.
6. Enjoy! Savor the comfort of your perfectly running A/C!
