Avoid Air Conditioning Problems. While it remains scorching
outside, air conditioners also need a break. Running your air
conditioning unit full blast 24/7 is like asking for a
breakdownand a whopping utility bill! Here at Edd Helms,
we'd like to offer you a few industry tips so that you can stay cool
this summer and also give your air conditioner a little
downtime. With a few pointers, you can maximize your cool air
and your dollars.
First, look at what setting you keep your thermostat on. There are two "on"
options, "on" and "automatic." Plainly put, the system will constantly stay on
when it is set to "on," and when it is set to "automatic" the thermostat will
only kick on and adjust when necessary. Also, the fan option will counteract
your air conditioner. The a.c. serves to remove humidity from the air inside, but running the fan will
actually blow that humid air back inside, thus proving the entire process
Change the filter! Many people
don't realize how much buildup can occur on the air filters over the course of a
month. It is a little disturbing how much dust, dirt and buildup are flowing
into your air supply each month, and by changing it monthly you can keep a check
on how much is cycling in through (or blocking clean air from cycling through)
your home and into your family's lungs.
These pointers should help you here in South Florida, where the "summer"
tends to last year round. If you do experience a situation calling for
