Help Prevent a Breakdown During the Summer Heat

One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating® offers these top tips to help keep your air conditioning operating at peak performance in this heat wave.

SARASOTA, Fla., July 22, 2016 // PRNewswire // -- With the soaring temperatures, your air conditioning is likely working overtime to keep you cool. There are things you can do now to make sure your cooling system is operating correctly and you're getting the most out of it.

  • Change your filter
    Change your air filter monthly or as required by your system's manufacturer. You can change it more often if you have pets or respiratory concerns. A dirty air filter makes your system work harder and not as efficiently as possible. This can also increase your energy use.
  • Give your outdoor unit some room to breathe
    Keep the outdoor air conditioning unit clear of debris and make sure flowers, shrubs and fencing are at least two feet away. Keep the top of the unit unobstructed and keep things like toys, hoses and lawn tools off the unit too.
  • Ceiling Fans
    Ceiling fans can create a wind chill effect, which can help you feel cool without lowering the temperature of your thermostat. Remember: fans cool people and not rooms. Turn fans on when you enter the room and off when you leave the room to help conserve energy. Bathroom fans and range hoods in the kitchen can also help remove heat and humidity from the air.
  • Regular Maintenance
    According to the Department of Energy, annual maintenance can help improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system and help your unit last longer.[1] With the exception of replacing your air filters, there are no consumer serviceable elements of your cooling and heating system. During regular maintenance a professional will clean and inspect your system. They may be able to catch minor issues before they become larger and more expensive repairs. We recommend finding a trusted professional to regularly maintain this big investment.
