If your Air Conditioning unit looks like that, you better call A&R Heating & Cooling at (501) 843-0444 to schedule a check-up! The cool air flowing through your home during the hot summer months is probably not something you spend much time thinking about. The components of your home cooling system are usually housed out of sight in the basement, a closet, on rooftops or in mechanical rooms, making them easy to ignore until something goes wrong. As the cooling season unfolds, A&R Heating & Cooling reminds you to remember your home cooling system and do what you can to keep it in peak working condition:
Change or clean your air filters. If you use disposable air filters, change them once a month. If you use electrostatic filters or an electronic air cleaner, follow the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.
Look at your landscaping. Properly placed plants can save you money. Plant trees and shrubs so that they shade your air conditioner unit but do not block its airflow. This will help the unit run more efficiently. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, an air conditioner uses about 10% less electricity when working in the shade.
Clean up the area around your outdoor unit. Clear away anything that could block airflow, such as weeds, plants leaves, trash or other debris.
Clean everything indoors, too. Clear dust and dirt away from registers and vacuum return air grilles. A clean system works better, lasts longer and uses less electricity. Reduced airflow wears your home cooling system out.
Schedule a check-up. Regular preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance all summer long. A professional check-up from A&R Heating & Cooling will address routine maintenance tasks you should not attempt yourself, such as checking refrigerant levels, checking and cleaning internal system components, measuring airflow, checking electrical connections and more.
A well-maintained home cooling system will operate more efficiently, consume less energy and last longer. Call A&R Heating & Cooling at (501) 843-0444 to schedule a check-up.
