Helping Your Air Conditioner Make It Through Summer

The warm weather season has officially arrived and most people are welcoming it with open arms! But if something goes wrong with your air conditioner, you could end up sweltering and cursing that beautiful sun. To make sure this doesn’t happen, follow these simple tips:

Schedule a checkup

Schedule a checkup with Brennan Heating. Contact us online or by phone at 1-877-BRENNAN (273-6626). A professional will know which pieces of the unit to check to ensure it is in good working order all summer long.

Look for air duct leaks

Pesky leaks in the air ducts can allow air pollutants into your home, wasting energy and costing you money. A contractor can use tools to check for leaks, and they can be fixed with air-duct sealant.

Check The Refrigerant

Be sure to use the proper amount of refrigerant. The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has estimated that up to 90% of home air conditioners run inefficiently due to overcharged or undercharged refrigerant levels. Air conditioning units require a precise balance in order to run correctly.

Inspect the Air Conditioner Outside

The motor for central air conditioning units is outside the home. It’s exposed to the elements and the typical wear-and-tear that comes along with it. Have your contractor ensure everything is in working order and be sure to not surround the air conditioner with high plants or tall flowers.
