Spring has sprung! You know what that means… It’s getting hot in Del Rio. It is easy to forget about the heat when you have a cooled house to come back to. However, a Del Rio air conditioning unit that has been neglected throughout the winter months could leave you miserably sweltering if it has been poorly maintained. Luckily, if you follow a few of our HVAC tips and tricks for spring time, you won’t have to break a sweat.

The first thing you should do to make sure your air conditioning unit is in full swing is to check the Freon levels in your system. When your Freon levels are too low, the system is forced to work in overdrive, which can in turn lead to a malfunctioning air conditioning unit and also make it more difficult for repairs to be made.

\Another important step that should be taken to ensure maximum efficiency with any Del Rio air conditioning unit is changing the filters. Over time dust and dirt will build up on your filters, which will restrict air flow, another factor that will make your system work too hard to cool your home. The good news is that HVAC filters are inexpensive and easy to change. Typically, you should try to change your air filters every 30-60 days. This will ensure that your unit is fully functional and dispensing clean air.

Last but definitely not least, make sure you check the obvious–– your thermostat. A common problem with bad thermostats is that they register a different temperature than that of the room they are in.

This means your thermostat either needs to be recalibrated or relocated to a different location in your home.

It is clear that proper maintenance of your air conditioning unit is very important if you want to survive the heat of the summer. That is why Del Rio is here to make sure you have all the knowledge you need to take care of your HVAC problems before they happen! This spring, take preventative pre-season measures and check to make sure your AC unit is healthy, so you won’t have a breakdown during severe heat times ­–– when it’s hardest to get help. Your entire household will benefit from these measures as you continue to save money, time, and energy, while getting the most out of your air conditioning unit.
