Summer in Oregon is beautiful, but beware it can also get HOT! Make sure your A/C works properly.
The weather forecast calls for more summer heat with continued very warm or hot temperatures. To stay comfortable you may be running your cooling air conditioning unit all day and all night. To fight the heat it is advisable to set the temperature early on to give the a/c system a chance to battle the rising temps.
Also have your equipment inspected and serviced regularly to ensure the best operation and efficiency. Robben & Sons Heating, Inc. can provide regular inspections and service for your equipment. Keeping the a/c equipment cleaned and tuned up will help ensure top efficiency. Beyond that here are a few common problems as well as tips for how to avoid them.
Do you have A/C problems?
- When windows and doors are open throughout the home this allows warm, humid air to come inside. For better efficiency try to keep windows and doors closed as much as possible
- A symptom like leaky air ducts or improper air flow may require an inspection of other parts of the hvac system. Pay attention to the temperatures in each room in your home. Uneven cooling may be the result of leaky ducts or other issues. Contact one of the professionals at Robben and Sons to diagnose and solve this problem for you.
- Dirty filters and coils prevent the a/c unit from functioning at its best. Our maintenance service handles these issues for you. If you are not sure exactly how to clean or replace the air filter, or want the a/c coil looked at, call us or request service online.
- Sometimes the condensate drain pipe on your unit may get dirty or clogged. This can happen due to mildew, debris, or even small plants, on occasion water will back up into the unit and cause problems. Again, if you think this is happening feel free to call us for help or schedule service online.
- By keeping your air conditioning unit clean, maintained regularly, and also watching out for common problems around your home, you should be able to keep your home comfortable and cool throughout the year.
