Better to Prepare than Repair
With 40,000 people living in Coppell today and 6.7 million living in the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth region, if even just 1 percent of air conditioners break down at the beginning of the heat season, you could be competing with 67,000 other homeowners for the attention of a great repair service.
Whether it’s October or June, the time to think about making sure your air conditioning unit is in top shape is now.
In fact, it’s probably better to have a Coppell air conditioning service come to your home to check on your A/C unit in fall, winter or even early spring, long before you really need to cool your home.
Imagine turning the A/C on in late May or early June and finding that it doesn’t work. Just get ready to wait in line because you can rest assured that other homeowners already are calling Coppell air conditioning companies to get their units repaired. It won’t be easy – to say the least – to live here without air conditioning for a few days or even weeks while you wait for the repairman.
DIY Tips to Keep Your A/C Unit in Great Condition
Benjamin Franklin said it best: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Read below for some tips on how to keep your unit in great shape so that you may not have to call upon a Coppell A/C repair service.
- Change the unit’s air filter monthly. This is easy to do. Changing the filter regularly can lower your A/C unit’s electricity use by between five and 15 percent (according to the U.S. Department of Energy). Swapping out the old filter for a new one helps keep your unit efficient because a clogged/dirty filter blocks air flow. If dirty air gets past the filter (which it will if the filter becomes filled with dirt), it can move into the unit’s evaporator coil, reducing the coil’s ability to absorb heat and keep your home cool.
- Get a cap from your neighborhood hardware store and place it on the end of your A/C unit’s drain. Once it’s capped, head outside to find the end of the drain and use a dry vacuum to suck dirt out. Make sure you take the cap off once you’ve vacuumed.
- Clean your air conditioner’s coils (make sure you disconnect the power to the unit first). Take a hose and wet the unit. Put on gloves and safety glasses and spray some commercial grade A/C cleaner onto the coils. Let it set for a bit, then rinse thoroughly with the garden hose.
