The summer months in Manatee County and Sarasota County, bring hot and humid weather. As temperatures rise, it is important to take steps to ensure your home and air conditioning system are prepared for the summer season.
Here are a few tips to help you get ready for the hot and humid weather:
Check Your Air ConditionerThe best way to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the summer season is to have it inspected by a professional HVAC technician. An inspection will check the refrigerant levels, evaluate the airflow, and look for any signs of wear and tear. An inspection will also help you identify any potential problems with your system and make sure that your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency. Anthony’s Cooling-Heating-Electrical, Inc. provides comprehensive inspections and maintenance services to keep your air conditioner running cool and efficiently all summer long.
Clean or Replace Your Air FiltersAir filters are an important part of your air conditioner’s performance. Dirty air filters can restrict airflow and reduce the efficiency of your system. It is recommended that you replace or clean your air filters at least every three months. If you have pets or allergies, you may need to replace or clean your air filters more often.
Seal Air LeaksAir leaks in your home can cause your air conditioner to work harder and reduce its efficiency. Check your windows and doors for air leaks and seal any cracks or gaps with caulk or weather stripping. You should also check your attic and basement for air leaks and make sure all vents are sealed properly.
Install Window TreatmentsWindow treatments like blinds, curtains, and shades can help keep your home cooler by blocking out the sun’s rays. Window treatments also help reduce glare and can improve the comfort of your home.
Schedule Regular Maintenance
Regular maintenance is essential for keeping your air conditioner running efficiently. Scheduling regular maintenance will help you identify potential problems before they become serious, and it will also help you save money on energy costs. Anthony’s Cooling-Heating-Electrical, Inc. offers a range of maintenance services to ensure your air conditioner is running at peak performance all summer.
