Summer in Northeast Ohio means backyard cookouts, beach days at the lake, cold drinks, and most importantly, a working central air conditioning system! Now that summer is just a few weeks away, it's time to prepare your home and HVAC system for the sweltering months ahead. But where to begin?
Fret not, homeowner! The air conditioning pros at Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling are here to show you how to prepare for those humid summer days with these handy AC tips.
All kinds of debris get trapped in your AC unit's filter, which is why it's crucial to replace your air filter at least once every 30-60 days. A clogged air filter makes it much harder for your AC to keep your home cool and can cause unnecessary wear on your HVAC system. Changing your air filter should be your number one priority before the heat of summer arrives.
Neighborly Tip: Set a reminder in your calendar app every month to nudge you to change your filter!
You're probably already using your HVAC system, but before turning it on full blast this summer, inspect it for any refrigerant leaks. Look for bubbling and listen for a hissing sound. If you observe either one, or your AC is icing up, there's likely a leak or disconnection somewhere.
We recommend that you have your AC system professionally checked out by our expert service team before summer begins. Operating an air conditioner low on refrigerant will damage the unit and reduce its efficiency. This summer, the last thing you want to happen is an AC breakdown due to an unexpected refrigerant leak!
Here in Ohio, we're known for our humid, sticky summers, so it's critical to control the humidity level in your home. A humidity level ranges between 30-50%. You can moderate the humidity level in your home and prevent mold or mildew growth by:
• Weather-sealing your doors and windows
• Using a dehumidifier, especially in your basement
• Running your AC, even if you're going out for the day or on vacation
Have your entire HVAC system inspected and cleaned by our professionals to ensure that it'll run efficiently during the summer months. We'll examine the condenser unit, tighten any loose hoses and connectors, and test your thermostat to ensure everything is working as well as it can.
If you're going away on vacation, it's a bright idea to program your AC to run periodically throughout the day or use a programmable thermostat to handle this automatically.
Consider installing a programmable or smart thermostat to keep the temperature and humidity level in check in your Northeast Ohio home. These clever devices intelligently moderate the temperature in your home to increase energy efficiency and comfort. Some models can even be programmed from a simple app on your phone!
