Tips for a Better AC Performance

condenserFirst off, note that we didn’t say a perfect AC performance. An air conditioner, even the best one on the market and even those installed by trained, experienced professionals, is still a  mechanical system. That means that, like any other mechanical system, they are subject to occasional operational problems. When that time comes, you can count on us to provide you with exceptional air conditioning repairs. Our air conditioning services in Hanford, CA are nothing if not comprehensive.

Okay, that being said, how can you get the best performance that your air conditioner can offer?  That is the subject of today’s post. Just because we’re already pretty far into the summer season doesn’t mean that this type of information can’t still be of use! So read on, and remember that our technicians are the ones that you want on the job if you want the best performance possible from your home cooling system.

1. Schedule a Professional Installation

We cannot stress this enough. If you fail to have your air conditioner put on the right path right away, then that decision will haunt you for the duration of this system’s lifespan. The only way in which to get the best performance possible from your AC from the outset is by scheduling a professional air conditioning installation.

Everything, from the sizing of your system to the design of its ductwork system, is going to affect the overall performance quality of your air conditioner. Don’t get your system off on the wrong foot by letting amateurs or novices size and install it. Leave the job to us, and reap the many benefits.

2. Change Your Air Filter Regularly

Not sure if it’s time? Then it’s probably time. The air filter in your air conditioner is there to protect the AC from problems caused by the buildup of pollutants on sensitive components within the system. If your air filter is too dirty, then it is going to impede the cooling process in a few ways. It can even lead to an icy evaporator coil and, eventually, system damages.

Typically, an air filter is going to need to be changed once every 1-3 months. There are, however, a lot of different factors that can influence just how frequently your filter requires replacement. The best thing to do is to check in on it every month or so to evaluate its condition.

3. Schedule Professional Air Conditioning Maintenance

Are you serious about enjoying the most reliable and effective performance possible from your air conditioner? Then you need to schedule annual air conditioning maintenance. It really is that simple. Nothing is better for your AC—nothing.

An AC tune-up is more than just a thorough cleaning of your air conditioning system. We’ll test the various electrical components of the system, we’ll lubricate moving parts as needed, we’ll measure voltage/amperage, check for loose bolts, screws, and connections, and so much more. Plus, we offer a great maintenance program that makes it easier than ever to keep your system in great working condition!

We strive to provide honest answers and solutions to the problems our customers experience while remaining highly competitive in price, and offer the fastest turnaround you can find! Contact Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning today!
