3 Tips to Keep Your AC Cooling You for the Rest of the Summer Months

When it comes to home comfort in Southwest Louisiana, no residential appliance is more important than a well-operating air conditioner. No matter how hot and sticky it gets outside, you count on your cooling system to keep everyone in your household cool, dry and comfortable. This year’s record-breaking heat has been particularly taxing on the region’s hard-working AC systems, but these three tips can help ensure that your air conditioner keeps going strong for the rest of the season.

Change the Filter

Filters perform double duty in home air conditioning systems. They not only help keep the air you breathe fresh and clean but protect the equipment from damaging dirt and dust too. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends changing your AC filter once a month to increase efficiency and keep your operating costs low. An easy way to remember to change the filter is to label them with the months of the year.

Check the Condensate Line

Your air conditioner works hard to extract both heat and humidity from your home. All the moisture that your AC pulls from the air is collected in a drain pan and deposited outside through a condensate line. Any clog or leak in the system can cause water damage to your property. Standing water can allow unhealthy mold to grow too, which is why the EPA urges regular inspections of the condensate line to ensure it’s unobstructed and flowing freely.

Schedule a Summer Checkup

Professional maintenance is an affordable investment that pays off in better AC performance, lower energy bills, fewer repair costs and a longer service life. At Lee’s Air Conditioning Company, we offer maintenance programs with regularly scheduled checkups that ensure your AC gets the care it needs to operate at peak efficiency.
