Air Conditioning Tips and Tricks For Your Home

Home Air Conditioning TipsSimple problems can sometimes be resolved by the home or business owner. 

Pre-program before you’re home. 

If you’re lucky enough to have an AC with a programmable timer, use it! Don’t arrive home and whack the poor machine on full blast. Instead, let it switch itself on 30 minutes before you’re home, and slowly cool down your whole space. Air conditioners work best when continuously for long periods, rather than trying to blast-cool a whole room.


Make sure all air pipes are clear. 

If you’re questioning the AC’s efficiency, it’s always worth a double check to make sure all the intake and outtake pipes are free of blockages. Similar to air conditioner, removing blockages in kitchen and bathroom is also important. Therefore it is advised to contact a reliable drain plumber for emergency drain cleaning needs and blockage issues. Buy the Discount Water Filters and have them replaced regularly to help the AC to run at its best condition. It’s also worth making sure that the air intake isn’t above another vent that could have hot air coming out of it and going into the air conditioner! 


Fix a Sinking Home Air Conditioner Pad

The concrete pads under home air conditioner and heat exchanger units tend to settle over the years. As long as there’s no strain on the copper coolant tubes and electrical lines, and the unit stays dry and level, it’s OK that the pad has sunk. 

Do you remember how disruptive it was the last time your air conditioner failed in the middle of a heat wave? Staying cool becomes an obsession that can drain your time, productivity and energy. These easy AC tune up tips can keep your unit running reliably. When your air conditioning unit needs more extensive attention, you will want to call in an accredited heating and air conditioning repair specialist, like those at You may also consider hiring Boiler Unit Services if you have problems with your boiler systems.

Enjoy your AC tips!
