Your Complete Checklist For A Totally Comfortable Home This Summer

Follow this complete checklist for a totally comfortable home this summer:

Get to know your A/C system:

  • Where is my central air conditioning equipment located? Do you have a split system or a package unit?  A split system has a condenser located outside and an indoor evaporator located inside.  A package unit has all components located outside on the ground, in the attice or on the roof.
  • What type of power does my system use? Central air is electric; heat pump uses fuel; geothermal uses alternative energy.
  • When was the system installed? There should be a sticker showing the installation date on your indoor equpment.
  • What is the brand, serial number and model number?

Pre-season maintenance tips:

  • What is the date of the system’s last regular maintenance check?
  • What issues or repairs, if any, where identified at the last check?
  • Change or clean your filters regularly.
  • Be sure indoor vents are open and not blocked by furniture, drapery or other items.
  • Clean your outdoor unit and remove overgrowth and debris from around the equipment.
  • Schedule an annual professional cleaning and maintenance check for your system.

Action items and troubleshooting:

  • Check the controls and test start cycle to ensure it starts and shuts off properly.
  • Install proper insulation and sealing in your home to preserve air conditioned air.
  • Install a programmable thermostat to help reduce energy use and save money.
  • Turn your humidifier to the “off” or “summer” setting before starting your air conditioner in the summer. This will keep humidity lower in your home.
  • Call LHT Cooling, Heating & Refrigeration, Inc., your trusted HVAC professional, to handle emergencies quickly when you face unexpected problems during the summer.

A comfortable home from your central air conditioning will make for a much more enjoyable summer for you and your family!
