Coming home to a hot home is not a pleasant experience. In Oklahoma, where temperatures can easily reach 100+ degrees in the summer and the average summertime temperature can be in the 90s, failing air conditioning systems can be especially annoying. Will your air conditioning system last for this season? Here are a few tips to help you find out:
How old is it? If your system is over ten years old, it is a good time to have it checked and possibly replaced. Note that replacing systems that old can actually save you a lot of money on energy bills.
Have you had your system checked every year? Having a professional like Air Assurance review your system each year is a good practice – and keeps your system running longer.
How bad are your energy bills? If you have unusually high electrical costs when running your air conditioner, this could be a good indicator that it is using far more energy than it should.
Have you regularly replaced your filters? Replacing your filters every 2-4 months (depending on the type of home and amount of dirt/dust) is very important and could prevent damage to your system caused by the internal components working harder than they should. Make sure and not buy the cheapest filter!
How did it do last year? If you had problems cooling your home last year, the situation will not improve this summer unless the system is thoroughly checked.
The safest and easiest way to determine if your air conditioning system will make it through the summer is to have a professional inspect your system before the season begins.
