With the temperatures on the rise you might be considering a new or upgraded AC system for your home. If that’s the case, then remember that it’s not going to get much cooler in the coming days, and it’s better to install/upgrade to that new system before the hottest parts of the summer arrive; you don’t want to find yourself sitting in front of a window fan, sweating.

If you’re happy with your cooling system, then you will want to remember to have it serviced. Again, do this before the hottest months of the summer arrive. You want your system working as efficiently as possible, because an inefficient HVAC system at peak season is both uncomfortable and costly. The energy bill can skyrocket if your HVAC system is running inefficiently. An HVAC technician from R and T Services can check on your system, perform any necessary repairs/upgrades/replacements that will only help to keep your home cool and your system working efficiently throughout the season.

Now there are also a few things that you can do at home to keep your HVAC system in tiptop shape. You should always keep your AC unit clean. In many cases, AC units are placed on the side of the home, away from the heavily-trafficked areas. But it’s easy to forget on the side of the house, where rarely anyone spends time. You should periodically check on the unit, making sure that the plants and weeds haven’t grown up and into the unit. Plants can clog an AC unit’s fan, which could cause the unit to either overheat or operate at a low level of efficiency. Make sure to pick those weeds around the unit, and check in every week or two to make sure that the area is cleared away, and that the unit appears in good shape. You don’t want your AC to quit working, unexpectedly, in the middle of a hot day.
