How to Protect Air Conditioner in Summer

Air conditioning systems are used to cool down the temperature of the room or building. They work by removing heat inside the building using a refrigerant, which transfers that heat outside. The air conditioners can be installed for both commercial and residential purposes. They are crucial in keeping your house cool and comfortable during the summertime.

If you have an air conditioner at home, you know how essential it is during hot Texas days when you don’t want to leave your house because of unbearable heat. But did you ever think about what happens to the air conditioning system during this hot weather? How does it get affected by hot summers? This article will help you understand how your AC gets affected by hot weather and what measures you can take to hold it properly so that it operates efficiently all year round!

What Are Common AC Issues?

Here are some common AC issues that can creep up during the summer:

Ductwork damage: Heat can cause ductwork to expand and contract, leading to wear and tear over time. If you don’t take care of these damages, they might lead to leaks or other problems.

Dirty coils: Dirty coils can affect your system’s performance by making it harder for it to regulate temperature properly. You will need to clean them frequently so they don’t clog up dust or debris over time.

Low refrigerant levels: Your AC requires a certain amount of refrigerant (or coolant) to operate appropriately. If this level gets too low, your unit may stop working altogether! You must check this often.

Effects Of Heat on Your AC

Summer is here, and you need to be prepared with the best AC unit for your home. This information will help keep your home cool during hot summer days. However, many things can affect the performance of your AC system. One of the factors that could affect your AC unit is the heat.

Heat affects your air conditioner in two ways:

Heat causes low air pressure inside the house, making it harder for the AC to cool down.

When there is a lot of heat outside, it makes your air conditioner work harder to cool down your home, which can cause damage to its parts if not appropriately maintained.

 

Ways To Prevent Your AC From Breaking

The following are some ways that you can keep your AC running smoothly:

Check the thermostat settings
Ensure that the temperature isn’t set too low or high and that its temperature is set correctly for the season. If it’s too cold, the system will run longer than necessary and use more energy than it should. If it’s too hot, you could end up with a broken compressor when you’re not home to hear it fail.

Check for molds
This could be found around windows, doors, and other openings leading into your home from outside. Another cause could be outside critters finding their way into your attic or crawl space near vents where they could create nests and leave their droppings which will cause mold growth inside your air conditioning system unit.

Check for leaks
There is a possibility that your older appliance may leak in someplace. If you notice moisture inside or outside of your house, then it’s time to check for leaks in your unit. Leaks can cause significant damage over time and significantly increase your energy bill. So, call a residential HVAC professional right away if you see any signs of leaks so they can take into consideration the problem before it worsens.

The Chill Brothers offer a maintenance plan that will help with your AC installation service and also help keep your air conditioning unit running efficiently all year long.

We would be happy to discuss your air conditioner maintenance plan, tune-ups, repairs, and HVAC system upgrades if you are interested in this program.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

Q1. Can hot weather affect AC?
A. The majority of air conditioning units are made to work in temperatures outside of 100 degrees or less. The air conditioning system may use more energy and malfunction or fail when the outside temperature rises above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Q2. Should I turn my AC off if it’s not cooling?
A. You should certainly turn off your air conditioner and call the operator as soon as possible if your air conditioner isn’t chilling and you suspect a refrigerant leak or if you’ve checked the air filter and thermostat without success.

Q3. Does covering your AC unit help?
A. You risk your air conditioner rusting and your coils corroding if you wrap or cover it. A tarped air conditioner frequently causes more damage than good because moisture and humidity can get trapped within the machine when it is covered. We do not advise covering an air conditioner due to these factors.
