Are you and your loved ones about to embark on a long, relaxing vacation? Instead of just prepping for the details of your trip as you travel and once you arrive at your destination, consider some of the things that might need tending to at your home to prepare for your being gone. One of those items that should be included on your to-do list prior to leaving is making certain that your air conditioning system is running optimally before you leave. The experts at KAC Express are professionals who specialize in the exact sort of Air Conditioning Repair and Air Conditioning Maintenance that your system might need before your big trip. Contact our team today to see how we might be able to help you with your HVAC service needs in the greater Houston area.
Here are a few tips you might keep in mind as you check on the status of your HVAC systems:
Change Your Filters
Starting off simple is always a great idea! Change the filters that protect your air quality to be certain that they haven’t become clogged beyond efficiency with dust and dirt. As a general rule, air filters should be checked and changed quarterly. Our team of AC repair specialists will be happy to take care of this chore for you upon service, or you can add it to your list of quarterly cleaning responsibilities.
Tidy Up Around Your AC Unit
It is imperative that your air conditioning system has access to the space it needs to ensure that it is circulating air effectively. Clean up the area near your AC unit outside by removing the weeds, brush, tree limbs, and maybe even children’s toys from the airflow path. Also, keep your landscaping near your air conditioning unit trimmed and kept so that nothing interferes with your proper circulation, and so that your technicians can access them easily when they attempt routine maintenance.
Program Your Thermostat
Another simple solution to preventative maintenance before your trip is to program your thermostat to change temperature settings based upon a set schedule. This will save you money and peace of mind to know that your system is maintaining a decent temperature for your system to stay functioning, but perhaps not as comfortable of a temperature as you might prefer when you are home.
Prevent Surges to Your AC System
Connecting your air conditioner to a surge protector is a positive suggestion for anyone who will be away from their property for any significant amount of time. This will help to avoid the unnecessary possibility of your system being adversely affected by a power surge from a storm or other incidental.
