This has been a scorching hot summer in our area, as usual.
Of course, all summers out here are.
Don’t get myself and others wrong when I say this, though, I like the summertime. But, I take a lot of steps to properly get ready for summer time in order to make sure myself, my family, and my home are comfortable. One thing I do is to always make sure my a/c is tuned up and ready no later than Spring. In the middle Spring, it’s already hot enough to start turning the a/c on and that has historically been when I hire a/c specialists to come out and take a look at the unit and make sure my a/c is in nice finally working order for the hot season ahead. The specialist inspects the air conditioner equipment and always makes sure that the outdoor a/c condenser it’s in nice shape too. They also go through and clean everything. It’s critical that the a/c condenser is not full of debris and dust. If it is, you’re going to have an a/c that is really struggling every day in the summertime heat. This can cause it to overheat and it will eventually also entirely make your energy bill go really high. If you can’t actually afford to hire a professional a/c specialist, at least make sure to adequately clean the outdoor condenser component yourself. You can easily do this by shutting off the power, removing the top and then gently wiping down the blades and removing any debris that might be inside. Be extra careful not to bend any of the blades. Then go ahead and change the onboard air filter and make sure there is no debris located in the inside component either.
