3 Ways to Maximize Your AC’s Performance This Season

Picture this: you find yourself tossing and turning all night because you can’t seem to get comfortable in bed. You’re sure you programmed the thermostat so the air kicks on when it gets a little warm in the house, but you find yourself getting warm. You wake up in the morning only to find out that your home’s cooling system is no longer working. Panic mode commence.

Not so fast! The cooling experts at Uptown are here for you when you find yourself in hot and sticky situations like this one. Our technicians are well-trained and ready to take on your broken system. While it’s our job to get it back up and running, it’s your job to do a small bit of maintenance every now and then to make sure it doesn’t break down again.

Here’s what you can do to maximize your air conditioner’s performance this season:

  1. Run your ceiling fan in conjunction with the air conditioner. The fan will help by circulating cool air throughout your home. This way, your system won’t have to work as hard which has the potential to save you money and headaches down the road.

  2. Keep the outdoor unit clean. We recommend cutting back any overgrown bushes or shrubs that could be affecting the unit. It’s also a good idea to spray down the fins once a month to get rid of dirt and debris that may have accumulated.

  3. Clean those filters! Leave yourself a reminder to clean or replace the filter at least once a month. Dust and dirt are your cooling system’s worst nightmare!
