How to Help Your AC Unit Keep Up With the Summer Heat

Jun 4 ,2018

Now’s the time when air conditioning companies are busiest. Summer has finally arrived in Minnesota, and thousands of families are realizing that their AC systems aren’t equipped to deal with the high temperatures.

If your AC unit is struggling to combat the summer heat, here’s a few things you can do to give it a helping hand.

  1. Clear away the debris lying around your AC unit. The harsh winters of Minnesota can leave many dead leaves, branches, dirt, and other blockages around the AC unit. This makes it work doubly hard to pump out cool air.
  2. Change your filters. It’s much more difficult for cold air to pass through filters that are dirty or dusty. Make sure you have replaced or cleaned the filters fairly recently.
  3. Put new batteries in the thermostat. Without a properly working thermostat, it’s impossible for your AC system to accurately gauge the temperature inside your home. This can cause it to work harder than it really needs to.
  4. Work on keeping your home’s temperature consistent. Switching between high and low temps throughout the day can cause your air conditioner to run out of steam and quit working properly. Even if you think you’re saving money by turning the system off and back on again, you might actually be overworking it and using even more energy.

By keeping these tips in mind, you can prevent your air conditioning from shutting down when you need it most.

However, if your AC system seems to run into problems anyway, call One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning. Their trained representatives will rapidly handle whatever problems your AC unit has, so you don’t go without cold air for long. As soon as you start to notice problems with your system, call 763-412-1197. If the technicians don’t show up at the promised time, you get your money back!
