From End Zone to Comfort Zone (A/C Upkeep During the Fall)

August 24, 2017 |

It’s that time of year again—time to throw on that lucky jersey, put on your finest face paint, and get to rooting for the home team. Yes, it’s football season and All Year Heating & Cooling knows how exciting that can be, and how hot it can be too. So, we’re going to give you some tips on how to make your home the ultimate comfort zone by knowing how to keep your Air Conditioning unit in tip top shape and your home cool in the heat of the moment.

All Year Heating & Cooling is no stranger to an Austin summer, in fact we’ve seen 50 of them. Even though football season technically starts at the end of summer, that doesn’t mean the heat stops here in Austin, and neither does your Air Conditioning unit. After months of relentless heat, your Air Conditioning unit has probably been working around the clock to keep your home cool. So, it’s probably a good time to call in for a checkup.

We recommend you have your HVAC system inspected at least once a year, preferably in the Spring so we can make sure your Air Conditioning unit will run at its most efficient for the summer months, but any time is a good time to get your HVAC system inspected. The biggest reason we recommend you have your HVAC system inspected annually is money, and trust us, all those annual checkups will pay off big in the long run.

An HVAC technician can catch small problems that will eventually turn into big problems, which will eventually lead to more money down the road. For example, it would be easier for an HVAC technician to fix a small refrigerant leak than for you to have to replace a compressor after it has burnt up your whole unit, which can cost thousands. Think of it like missing a field goal: three points doesn’t seem like much during the game, but near the end they could be the deciding factor.

Another thing to consider is that you’ll want your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible. When it’s running efficiently, that means it’s using less energy, and when it’s using less energy you’re saving more money. And when it comes time to watch the big game it’ll feel like you’re in box seating and not sitting directly under the sun.

In order to get the most efficiency out of your HVAC system, an HVAC Technician will usually go down a list of common items to check in your HVAC unit. The most common things HVAC Technicians will be checking for are proper refrigerant levels, making sure electrical components and controls work properly, and making sure key components and filters are clean. All these things will keep your HVAC system running in top condition for years to come and help you save more money.
