5 Ways to Ensure Your HVAC Cooling System Gives Top Performance During Summer Months
Posted on:Thursday, November 10, 2016

Surviving summers without an efficient cooling system is nearly impossible. The heat from the scorching sun turns unbearable at one point, which can cause a lot of lethargy or dehydration. A good cooling system is the need of the season. Here are some top ways to make sure your cooling system doesn’t come to a halt when you need it the most during the summer, and continues to give optimal performance:

1. Air filter inspection
Air filters often get clogged due to dust bunnies and other debris that collects around them. This prevents the AC from giving out cool air. This can create an uncomfortable atmosphere in your home. If that’s not all, your energy bill shoots up too. It’s important to ensure that the air filter is clean. If it gets too dirty, it may be beyond repair and need to be replaced. Once the filter is cleaned or replaced, it will boost the efficiency of the system.

2. Check for possible gaps that may leak air
If your cooling system is not working efficiently, there can be other possible reasons too, like air leakage from different spaces or holes in windows, doors, etc. Check for gaps and spaces around the window sill, doors, drains, air ducts, etc. if you find any, seal then caulk them well. Sealing all possible outlets that cause leakage can help your home stay cooler for longer.

3. Check Insulation levels
Insulation levels are important to check. If you have an attic in your home, now is a good time to check if the insulation is working well. If the attic is not insulated well, it’s likely to prevent your home from proper cooling during peak summer months. It is important to ensure good insulation as it can help you save a lot of money on energy bills and provide a cool home too.

4. HVAC cooling system maintenance check
An annual maintenance check, especially before the summer months is essential. The cooling system is used rigorously during the summer months which can take a toll on the performance of the system. A yearly maintenance check from a HVAC professional is extremely important. A regular check helps detect any possible issues, and hence fix them before they cause trouble.

5. A new cooling system
A good AC system lasts around a decade, if maintained well. In case you find too many problems with the system, which are beyond repair. It’s time to replace it with a new one. Make sure you get the new AC system from a reputable company that offers installation, sales and services for all HVAC products. This will ensure you don’t have an amateur installing the air conditioning system.

A good way to ensure that your air conditioner keeps running without a glitch during the summer months is to have a professional run a thorough inspection of the system before temperature goes up and the heat begins to be unbearable.
