How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Like New
Posted on: June 12, 2014
Summer has arrived in Clearwater. As the weather heats up, it’s understandable for you to want to keep your need for air conditioning repairs down. It’s inconvenient, to say the least, for your AC to quit working when the mercury rises. You can stop that from happening if you are proactive about keeping up with your unit’s maintenance and wellbeing. Here are some tips on how you can have a healthy AC and a cool, happy family all summer long.
Keep an Eye Out for Duct Leaks
A leaky duct reduces and prevents proper air flow. If this happens to your air conditioner, less chilly air is making its way to the hottest corners of your home. This isn’t an issue that’s easy to combat on your own, and it’s not easy on your wallet to buy the supplies you’ll need to solve it, either. Give our Clearwater company a call so we can give you the air conditioning repairs you need. We’ll help you save on duct sealants and insulation, and our specially trained professionals know how to get the job done right.
Keep the Inside Clean and Maintained
There are a lot of things that can go wrong inside your AC. You may have leaking refrigerant, a clogged air filter, or a blocked condensation drain. These are just some of the issues that can cause your home temperature and your electric bill to rise. Here are some telltale signs you need air conditioning repairs due to a problem inside:
- Rattling or buzzing noises from your unit
- Leaks around your AC
- And of course, your home gets hot!

Cut Back on Usage
Just the thought of turning off your AC for even a second in the summer may sound like poor advice to a Clearwater resident, but it’s not as hard as it sounds! Raise the temperature by a couple degrees and compensate by making use of ceiling or oscillating fans. You can also keep your home cool by using curtains and shades to keep unnecessary light out during morning or sunset. However you decide to do it, make a point to try and cool down your home without exhausting your AC to avoid excessive air conditioning repairs.
