Tips to Avoid an HVAC Emergency This Summer

Tips to Avoid an HVAC Emergency This Summer

An HVAC emergency can be costly and can leave you in a sweltering house. But can you proactively avoid one? Here are some tips to help you do just that. Take a look.

Tip #1: Watch Your Air Filter

Changing the air filter on your air conditioning system is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to avoid trouble. The filter helps trap dust and other airborne particles before they can enter your HVAC equipment, causing damage. A clean filter can help you avoid an unexpected breakdown.

Tip #2: Install a Smart Thermostat

An older model thermostat can cause your air conditioner to cycle too frequently. An upgrade to a smart thermostat allows you to program your cooling based on your lifestyle and your comfort preferences. This helps cut down on wear and tear from going up and down frequently due to manual resets.

Tip #3: Invest in a Maintenance Plan

An HVAC maintenance plan means your system gets the TLC it needs twice a year. Spring maintenance ensures everything is running as it should and that it’s clean, lubricated, tested, inspected, and calibrated. The best way to avoid unforeseen issues is to make sure your AC is in tip-top shape every spring.

Your air conditioning system can take a beating with the summer heat we get in North Carolina. Waking up in the middle of the night or coming home on the weekend to find a sweltering house and an out of service HVAC system can ruin your summer fun.
