Smart Homeowners Prepare for Hot Texas Summers

The Texas summer is rapidly approaching, meaning now is the time to make sure your air conditioner is up for the job of keeping you cool throughout the summer! Wondering how to prepare your unit before the scorching temperatures start?

Change those filters!

Changing the filters in your air conditioner once every three months will help keep them from getting clogged and gross. If your filters are dirty, your AC unit cannot run as efficiently, which could increase your AC electricity costs. During the summer, you should change the filter every month to keep your unit operating as effectively as possible.

Don’t neglect the outside of the unit!

The outside portion of your AC unit makes it very vulnerable to dirt, dust, leaves, and other debris. If you haven’t yet, you should clean off the exterior unit with a water hose to make sure that your air conditioner is ready.

Get a Maintenance

Smart homeowners maintain their air conditioner well as they are aware that a well-maintained air conditioner will deliver high performance while being energy efficient which means savings on energy bills.

Whether you want to get your unit checked out before summer or you need to install a completely new air conditioner, we are here for you. To learn more about our services and how we can keep you cool this summer, visit us online or call 281-890-0900

Get Your Air Conditioner Ready for Early Summer

It's a good idea to get your air conditioner ready for the early summer season for a number of reasons. For one, scheduling a tune-up and inspection now will help you beat the heat wave rush and get ahead of the backlog from those who wait too long. Plus, setting up servicing of your AC unit now will let you enjoy cool comfort in your home during the hot and humid days that always seem to arrive much earlier than we expect them to. A professional tune-up and inspection will get your air conditioning equipment up to peak performance right away, saving you money by cutting your monthly energy bill from day one of the cooling season.

How do you prepare your AC unit for early summer? First, tackle the basics, like clearing brush, dirt and leaves around the unit, and trimming bushes and shrubs to allow at least 24 inches of clearance around the HVAC equipment. Keep replacing the filters each month, too, to prevent dirty filters from restricting the flow of air through your system. Test the cooling mode on your thermostat for a few minutes to make sure the air conditioner actually works and cools properly. Finally, schedule a pre-season tune-up and inspection to help identify any issues and to fine tune the system to operate as efficiently as possible.

Give Air of Houston a call today at 281-890-0990 to schedule a check-up of your air conditioning system so you'll be ready for another early summer season in Texas.

The Importance of Regularly Changing the Air Filter for Your Home AC and Heating System

Did you know how important it is to change the air filters on your home AC and heating system to maintain its smooth operation and energy efficiency? People spend up to 90 percent of their time living, working, sleeping and more indoors, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Maintaining safe air quality is another reason why it's so critical to change filters on a regular basis.

Air conditioning and heating systems are among the biggest investment people make in their homes. Proper maintenance will not only keep the systems running properly, but will save you money on your monthly energy bill. Typically, filters should be checked and replaced every month, but the recommended replacement frequency will vary from home to home.

One method to remember when to replace filters is to do it upon payment of your monthly utility bill.

Regular replacement of filters is often the most effective way to enhance the efficiency of the evaporator – the system of components that absorb heat indoors – and entire operation of the AC system. By the way, the condenser unit expels the heat outdoors. Filters with a lot of dirt on them can damage the evaporator coils, compressors and blower.

The main types of air filters are the standard kind made out of polyester or fiberglass and pleated filters that have more surface area. Electrostatic are electrically charged filters that are layered.

Call Air of Houston with any questions you may have about the air filters in the air conditioning and heating systems in your home. We offer complete tune-ups and safety checks of residential AC and heating systems, including a check and installation of filters. Call us today.

Texans are riding a roller coaster with this winter’s weather. One day it is very warm and the next day temperatures dip back down. You find yourself adjusting your home’s thermostat to heat and then back to cool every other day. Playing yoyo with your thermostat can really cost you money and get annoying.

How can you cool and heat your home without the sting of a big utility bill? The most cost effective way is simply managing it by 5 degrees. If you have an older thermostat, keep the temperature in a steady economical range and that can save you money. Just keep in mind not to increase or decrease it by more than 5 degrees.

You can enjoy savings for years to come with a smart technology thermostat.

If you are fed up with battling your home’s thermostat give us a call. We can help you get the best energy savings with an advanced technology thermostat.
