Prepare for the Summer heat by insulating, weatherstripping and caulking your home. Make sure you plug leaks around windows and doors with weather stripping to eliminate drafts inside your home. Examine the outside of your home and replace old siding and bricks. Doing this will keep your indoor air temperature cool and comfortable.
If you hear a clicking or grating sound coming from your outside A/C unit, that may indicate that the blades are hitting an obstruction, or that the blades may be bent. This can affect the fan motor or the condenser coil. Contact YAZD Mechanical to help you with this repair.
Yard waste during the Summer months can accumulate and block your system’s airflow. This will cause your A/C unit to work more and use more energy to cool your home. Keep your outdoor air conditioning unit free of leaves and grass clippings. And keep shrubs, flowers and hedges at least 2 feet from each side of the unit.
Your HVAC System is a tough piece of equipment, it can withstand precipitation and extreme temperatures. Shading your A/C unit is a personal choice. Proper shading can help your unit perform more consistently and efficiently to keep your home at comfortable temperatures during the Summer months.
During the Summer heat, significant savings can be obtained by raising the temperature setting on your thermostat. By keeping the indoor temperature a little higher when you’re away, each degree of temperature can represent significant savings on your monthly cooling costs.
