Keeping this in mind, the following guide aims at bringing forth some easy ways of keeping the units maintained. I am sure that you wouldn’t have come across them before. Let us begin with it! Why & How to Fix Leakage in Your Unit: A study revealed that ducts can lose up to 30% of airflow  due  to  leakage.  So,  in  such  a  scenario,  it  is  important  that  you  find  leaks.

  2. Wondering! How to find leaks? Don’t worry, that is why it is titled ‘why and how’. Now theWondering! How to find leaks? Don’t worry, that is why it is titled ‘why and how’. Now the question comes of how to find leaks in your unit? The first and obvious option is to call your nearest expert of Air conditioner repair in Dallas. Otherwise, I have a back­up plan as well. This is the good old smoke trick wherein you light a stick of incense and hold it where the unit and the window frame meet. If you have a central air­conditioner, hold the stick near  duct  connections.  If  the  smoke  disperse  around  the  region,  it  means  that  there  is leakage. Temporary Solution: To seal small gaps, use foil tape and duct mastic to seal the larger ones. If you own a window AC, stuff foam between the equipment and the window frame and tape the area. Why & How to Insulate: it is always recommended that ducts located in the hot attics or crawl spaces should be wrapped. This keeps the air within them cool. Temporary Solution: To wrap them up, again, you may call your servicemen of AC repair in Dallas.  (http://www.houkac.com/dallas­air­conditioner­repairs/)  Else,  you  may  use  batt insulation, spray foam or rigid foam insulation. If you are using rigid insulation or seal batt, use only foil tape instead of duct tape. Why & How to Keep Your Unit Cool for Better Effectiveness: If you keep your heating and air­conditioning unit in shades during the day, you can extend the life of your equipment. Temporary Solution: To do this, you can install awnings over your air­conditioning units. The second highly recommended option is to run the AC unit in conjunction with floor or ceiling fans. This will help in circulating cooler air all over the place.  Why  &  How  to  Get  That  Perfect  Airflow  in  Your  Room:  Don’t  shut  your  rooms!  This  is specifically  true  to  the  central  AC  units  because  shutting  too  many  doors  may  cause suffocation and your system might go out of balance. Temporary Solution: Therefore, for a balanced airflow in the entire house, keep doors slightly ajar. (http://www.houkac.com/videos/) Why & How to Change Filters: It is prudent that you change your filters each month. Clean filters serves two purposes namely – Spreads germ­free air

  3. Increases air­conditioners’ efficiency Temporary Solution: If you own a filter which is easily washable, you do not need to buy a new  one  each  month.  However,  if  you  don’t  have,  look  for  the  filter  with  higher  MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value). This higher the grading, the better filtration.   Why  &  How  to  Service  Your  Unit’s  Condenser:  In  a  central  air­conditioning  unit,  both compressor and the condenser are located outside the house. To get maximum efficiency, it is better that you make the area free of obstructions. Temporary Solution: Keep the area free from shrubs, dust, grass, leaves etc. If you have a window  air­conditioning  unit,  ensure  that  it  is  not  placed  in  a  place  which  receives  direct sunlight. If you are facing problem in installation, ring in the best provider of AC installation in Dallas. Why & How to Maintain Your Air­Conditioning Unit: If you want to receive minimum utility bills  and  that  your  unit  functions  outstandingly  throughout,  get  somebody  on maintenance.  A  yearly  check­up  is  mandatory  which  will  go  beyond  cleaning  up  your filters.  Permanent Solution: The expert professional of your AC service in Dallas will go beyond just cleaning and replacing filters. Some of the tasks include – Cleaning and inspecting coils Adjusting and replacing fan belts Cleaning and checking blowers and fans Checking refrigerant and pressures Lubricating motors and bearings Inspecting controls and safeties Verifying operating temperatures   Posted in Air Conditioning Repair (http://www.houkac.com/category/category/blog­2/air­conditioning­repair/), Air Duct Cleaning (http://www.houkac.com/category/category/blog­2/air­duct­cleaning/), All Services (http://www.houkac.com/category/category/all­services­by­houk/), Energy Efficiency (http://www.houkac.com/category/category/blog­2/energy­efficiency/) | Tags: ac maintenance (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­maintenance/), ac maintenance in dallas (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­maintenance­in­dallas/), ac repair dallas (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­repair­dallas/), ac repair tricks (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­repair­ tricks/), ac repairs (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­repairs/), ac reparing dallas (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­reparing­dallas/), ac services in dallas (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­ services­in­dallas/), ac servicing (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­servicing/), ac unit (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/ac­unit/), acmaintenance (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/acmaintenance/), Air Conditioner (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/air­conditioner/), air conditioning unit (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/air­conditioning­unit/), dallas (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/dallas/), dallas ac repairs (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/dallas­ac­repairs/), energy efficiency (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/energy­efficiency­2/), Heating Repair (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/heating­repair/), hetaing unit (http://www.houkac.com/category/tag/hetaing­unit/),
