21 Sep Did you know that your ac is also involved in warming your home up during the winter?
You know your a/c system cools your home, but did you know that it’s also involved in warming your home up during the winter? With a little preparation in the fall, you can get your home winter ready and help yourself avoid costly a/c repair services down the line!
Start by performing routine maintenance and cleanings to your a/c system to help prevent future repairs. You may feel like you need an a/c repair professional to do this for you, and Biggs HVAC is happy to help, but if you’re careful and take safety precautions, there’s no reason you can’t clean the a/c unit yourself!
Just like your a/c repair professional, you want to start by cutting power to the unit. Then, carefully remove the safety cage, and use a shop vacuum to clean debris from inside the a/c condenser.
Next, use a hose to spray out the inside of the a/c unit to remove any leftover dirt, dust, and debris you couldn’t reach with the vacuum. Think of this gunk as a a recipe for disaster, meaning you’ll be paying down the line in a/c repairs if you don’t get it clean!
Once you’ve finished, simply reattach the safety cage, turn on your power, and you’re done! That call to your a/c repair professional can wait!
Another way you can help yourself when it comes to a/c repair and to get your unit winter ready is to purchase a new air filter for your heating and air system at least every six months. Replacing your a/c and heating system air filters will help your unit run more efficiently which equals a healthy, happy system and fewer a/c repair bills!
By performing these simple tasks, you’ll have your home winter ready in no time, and help prevent a/c repair costs.
