There are several homeowners who neglect to schedule an annual checkup of their air conditioning unit each and every year, which can lead to bad efficiency and a shorter operational lifespan of the system.
If you are close to the 14-week mark or have already passed it, be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Many people seem to forget that the air filter is one of the most important components that will keep their air conditioning running smoothly and efficiently all year round. The filter will clog up over time as it collects dust and debris, which will adversely affect the performance of the unit as it gets blocked. This filter should be checked once per week and changed or cleaned as needed. Manual thermostats are a thing of the past, so if your condo still has one of these, switch it out with a programmable model. As a result, you will be able to better manage your cooling needs, reduce energy consumption, and improve your system’s efficiency. Unless you have enough insulation in each section of your condo that requires it, cool air will escape and your cooling system will run longer. A qualified heating, ventilation, and A/C worker can aid you if you need assistance installing insulation. It may seem like an easy thing to remember, but several people neglect to reverse their ceiling fans’ direction once the weather begins to heat up. Make sure that the fan is spinning counterclockwise to lower cooling costs and push the air downwards.
