How To Reduce Strain On Your AC

Your AC isn’t invincible – no matter how much you want it to be! Factors like weather and temperature demand can greatly affect how hard your AC has to work to provide cool air to your home. If you want to help your AC system out so that it doesn’t struggle so much, there are some things you can do!

At Ball Heating & Air Conditioning, we know how inconvenient AC breakdowns can be. That’s why we want you to invest in your air conditioner efficiency now – these simple steps could relieve your cooling unit of stress and allow your home to be cooled easier.

DIY AC Maintenance

Replace Your Air Filters

One of the most important tasks to remember is changing your air filters out every 2 to 3 months. Air filters are designed to catch any contaminants using your air as their own personal highway before the air is delivered to your home. As time passes, the particles fill up the filter and start to clog the airflow. The blocked passageway can put enormous strain on your AC as it tries to pump air through to your living areas. Just set a reminder for yourself to change out your air filter and take that load off of your AC!

Install A Programmable Thermostat

Being hyper-aware of your AC use is also really beneficial. For example, if you are going to work for 8 hours a day, don’t leave your AC running. The system will go through strain as it struggles to cool your home – and no one is even there to benefit from it! Even your pets are perfectly fine with raising the temperature higher while you are away.

A programmable thermostat can really help you in this situation because you can set your normal patterns and be confident your AC only runs when you’re home!

Cleaning Practices

The air that flows through your cooling system is usually not purely clean. In fact, the particles of dust and dirt that are carried into the unit often stick to different components like fans and coils. Keep an eye on that accumulating grime so that it doesn’t start to make the AC’s job more difficult. If you can access the components, gently clean them with a soft rag and warm water. Do not use harsh chemicals on any part of your AC system – even the outside!

Professional AC Maintenance

Even if you keep up with all of the DIY maintenance tasks on your AC, you still need an expert to evaluate how well your unit is running. AC tune-ups give professionals a chance to repair any broken parts, adjust comfort settings and ensure your AC is performing efficiently.

Insulation & Ductwork

Your conditioned air moves through a series of ducts before it reaches your home, and then it is kept in your home by layers of insulation. If either your ducts or your insulation is insufficient or damaged, you could be losing a lot of energy. An HVAC contractor can help you out by evaluating if you have any air leaks and sealing your home properly.
