Summer HVAC Tune-Up

Summer HVAC Tune-Up

Summer is here and the high Texas temperatures come right along with it. Having your AC unit working well and efficiently will be imperative for a cool, comfortable summer. If you haven’t performed your maintenance, now is the time. We’ve made a list of a few things to keep in mind. If you would like our help, just give us a call.

Air Filters

Replacing your air filters on a regular basis ensures healthy air flow and improves your air conditioner efficiency.

Air Conditioner Units

Regular maintenance of your air conditioner extends its life and keeps it running efficiently. Over time, parts can wear out, break or simply need cleaning. Without maintenance, the system has to work harder and longer. This increases your risk of system repair and/or replacement and larger utility bills.

Clean AC Area

Clear any dust and debris around the area of your outdoor unit. Cleaning improves efficiency and performance and reduces the risk of unwanted repairs. Use a stiff brush for large stuff and a water hose for the rest.

Air Vents

Open all air vents. Your system was designed to flow through all vents. When some are closed, it puts strain on the system. Be sure that furniture is not sitting on top of a vent.

Air Ducts

The air ducts push the air through each part of your home. Therefore, it is crucial to keep them clean. There are several reasons to get your air ducts cleaned, including:

  • Visible mold growth inside the ducts or any component of your air conditioning and heating system.
  • Ducts are infested with rodents or insects.
  • Ducts are clogged with dust and debris.

Air Purifiers

Better air quality is healthy for everyone in your home. Installing an air purifier can eliminate harmful pollutants, making your air cleaner.


Having a well-insulated home will help keep your home cooler and your utility bills lower.

Test Run

Once you have finished maintenance of your system, do a test run. Let the system run for up to one hour, and verify that the air flow is good. Also listen for any odd sounds like loud clanking or clicking coming from the system.
