A home’s air conditioning is a big-ticket item. This is particularly true during hot Texas summers. Most clients express concerns about making sure that the HVAC system in their new home will cool efficiently during the hottest months of the year. What are some common fixes that can be made to make sure that system continues to function as it should?
Routine maintenance is important. This can be done through a local HVAC specialist to ensure that the system has what it needs to do to cool your home efficiently. On that same note, it is important to change your air filters to keep the air in your system circulating without obstructions. If the system does not have adequate air flow, homeowners run the risk of allowing condensation to build up inside the HVAC ductwork. The presence of condensation can lead to microbial growth and it’s fair to say that no one wants to contribute to mold in the air that they and their family are breathing.
Inspectors often encounter rusty overflow pans or standing water in the overflow pan. The cause of the moisture in the pan should be determined and remedied. Once the issue has been resolved, and if the pan is rusty, it can be painted or resurfaced with a solution to prevent further corrosion. Although perhaps the simpler and less time-consuming solution would be to replace the pan altogether.
Consider how important it is to you to keep your HVAC system running efficiently. One can argue that the time, money, and effort that is invested in maintaining the system is well worth it in the long run. It can definitely make for a much more comfortable home with the Texas weather hits extreme temperatures.
