The HVAC industry is ultimately a seasonal one. Every time the weather or seasons change, your HVAC needs have to shift with them. Luckily, there are things you can do to assist your air conditioner through a heatwave.
Air filtration is necessary to keep your indoor air quality high. If you haven’t replaced your filters in the past month, not only will your IAQ suffer, but your airflow will have problems as well. This is why it’s particularly necessary to switch filters out during a heatwave because you’ll be running your AC more often!
The condenser unit is the outdoor part of your AC system. This means it is most directly exposed to the elements. Unfortunately, your system can’t function and cool your home unless the condenser unit is working properly. In a heatwave, your system is more likely to overheat. This is particularly the case when your condenser coils are not clean. Help your AC unit by getting a professional tune-up that can clean your condenser coils.
Even the most powerful residential air conditioner can only reduce in-home temperatures by about 20 degrees. This is why it’s important to supplement your AC with other cooling methods during a heatwave.
We recommend you do this by implementing windchill by using fans and preventing unnecessary heating by closing curtains and preventing sunlight for heating your space.Choice Air Care has you covered for any air conditioning repair or replacement services.
