San Antonio days are often bright and sunny, but in summer, the light and heat have a piercing quality to them. Homeowners find relief by cranking up their air conditioning (AC) system, but you might want to do a few things before doing this. Here are ways to prepare your AC for the summer heat.
- Change your air filters. You’ll likely see an increase in dust mites during the summer. These tend to build up in the AC filters, creating blockages that hamper the way your air conditioner distributes cool air throughout your home. Not only that, but the dust buildup in the filters can also lead to poor indoor air quality. To help maintain your system’s cooling performance – and keep the air you breathe safer and healthier – make sure to change the air filters more frequently in the summer months.
- Schedule an air conditioner tune-up. The last thing you want is an AC breakdown right in the middle of summer. You’ll need to schedule a comprehensive inspection from a trusted HVAC company like EZ Air Conditioning and Heating. This way, any developing issues your AC may have can be caught and dealt with early. By keeping your air conditioner tuned up, you’ll be able to avoid any system failure that can lead to significant energy loss and costly repairs.
- Consider a thermostat upgrade. If your current thermostat is already outdated and problematic, you should switch to a newer, more efficient one. EZ Air Conditioning and Heating offers high-quality smart Wi-Fi thermostats from trusted brand Carrier®. These are designed to be more efficient than older thermostats.
