How Do HVAC Techs Keep Homes Cool Over Summer Months?
What Does an HVAC Tech Do Differently In the Summer?
An HVACR Professional works to service, install, troubleshoot, and fix HVACR equipment such as furnaces, air conditioners, boilers, heat pumps, refrigeration units, coolers, freezers, humidifying units, air filtration systems and more. Before the summer months’ approach, homeowners should think about having their cooling units—such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and coolers—checked to make sure they are working properly. The following are just some of the things an HVACR Tech may do differently in the summer:
- In the summer, an HVAC installer will inspect, clean, and tune up a central air conditioning unit ensuring it is free of debris and its parts are properly working
- HVAC Installers know it is best to install a new AC unit in the shade. Air Conditioner (AC) units that are located in a shady area perform more efficiently, run less often, and are quieter. The air in a shaded space is cooler than that in a sunny space, and the unit itself will not get hot.
- They’ll make sure the unit is stable and level. The refrigerant inside of the AC unit needs to flow through the coils evenly without interference from being slanted.
- HVAC installers will tell you that any thermostat should also be put in an area of the home where it is not in direct sunlight.
- An HVAC Installer will be able to tell you if it is worth fixing you old HVAC unit, or if it is basically inefficient, and they would recommend you replacing it. The energy costs of running an old, outdated system could be very large as it would have to work twice as hard.
- If you are replacing your unit or buying your first unit, make sure it is an energy-efficient model.
- An expert HVAC tech may even suggest a heat pump (don’t let the name fool you) which can cool the house by pushing the warm air inside the home to the outside in during warmer months
These and many more are helpful tips that a great HVAC installer will offer a home or business owner!
