Learning About Commercial HVAC Systems

Hello, my name is Jacob. I would like to talk about proper installation and repair of the HVAC system in your commercial building. Full scale HVAC systems for commercial buildings require ongoing maintenance and repairs to keep every floor and room at a comfortable temperature. These temperature control systems also control the air quality in the building by sending the airflow through filter elements. My site will cover all aspects of the upkeep needed for these systems. I will also talk about the benefits of keeping your air quality and temperatures at desirable levels. Thanks for coming to visit my website.

It's Really Hot! 4 Steps To Keep Your AC Working This Summer

Isaiah Chapman

Summer is finally here. It's time to turn the air conditioner on and stay cool. If you've prepared your AC for the onslaught of scorching temperatures, you shouldn't have a problem. If you haven't prepared your AC, you might be looking at some hot days ahead, especially if your unit has a breakdown this summer. Luckily, there's still time to get your air conditioner ready for the extreme temperatures. Here are four steps you can take to prevent breakdowns this summer.

Change the Filter

When it comes to maintaining your AC, changing the filter might seem like an inconsequential item. However, a dirty air filter can decrease interior air flow, decrease energy efficiency, and make your AC work harder on hot days. If you haven't changed your filter this summer, now's a good time to do it.

Clear the Area Around the AC

If you take a look at your AC unit, you'll see that the exterior is comprised of a system of vents. Those vents allow air to flow through to the fan blades and motor. If the area around your AC is blocked with debris, such as wood, weeds, or other materials, your unit won't be able to get the airflow that it needs to operate properly. Help your air conditioner work more efficiently by removing the debris that could be blocking the airflow.

Inspect the Drain Line

Your air conditioner generates a lot of moisture that will need to drain from the unit. The drain line that's attached to your AC allows moisture to drain from your home. While your air conditioner is running, go outside and take a look at the drain line. You should see a small puddle of liquid at the opening. That puddle shows that your drain line is working properly to remove moisture. If the area is dry, you'll need to have the drain line looked at. You may have a clog in the line.

Get a Tune Up

You might not know this but your air conditioner needs a yearly tune-up. During the tune-up, a service technician will inspect for problems and ensure that the system is working properly. Yearly tune-ups can help prevent malfunctions that could leave you sweltering in the summer heat.

The temperatures are starting to soar. Time to make sure that your air conditioner will be up to the task of keeping you cool. Use the information provided here to make sure your air conditioner runs smoothly all summer long. For more information, contact an expert in air conditioning services.
