Summer will be right here before you know it, and we know how hot Texas summers can be. Here at Texas Made, we will work hard for you and your AC system to make sure it is in tip top shape for the summer heat. Here are some hints to get your AC summer ready. Change or clean your filter, this is something you should be in the habit of doing every couple of months. It stops dust and dander from re circulating throughout your house, and prevents your AC having to work harder to do its job.
Visit your outside condenser and make sure that new spring and summer foliage isn’t blocking any of the equipment. Take some time to clear away debris and clean the outside equipment with a cloth, removing dust and dirt. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can look over your fan belt on the outside unit and see if it needs to be adjusted, or just look for any obvious damage or aging that could potentially lead to a problem.
Some consumers like to have their ductwork cleaned by a professional before summer arrives. This is to ensure there is no dust and dirt buildup in non-visible areas, and to be assured there is no water damage or natural wear and tear. The ductwork that is not hidden behind your ceilings and walls can be wiped down with a cloth. If you feel more comfortable having a professional perform a summer tune up on your AC, please reach out to us at Texas Made and we would love to help you.
