  1. Ensure with the colder fall and winter months, no dirt and debris have gotten in and around your unit, preventing it from working to its total capacity. Blockages can potentially cause your unit to cease functional operation. Providing a clean environment for your unit is vital to keeping it in tip-top shape.
  2. Changing your furnace filter is an easy step to ensure the health of your unit. We recommend every 3 months that you change out the filter as it can become quite clogged with dust and debris causing potential strain on your unit. As an added bonus doing this regularly is also helping lower utility costs and maintain clean breathing air in your home.
  3. Insulating your attic can also be beneficial to ensure no cold air escapes through your home. As well as checking for any air leaks around all of your window and door casings. Doing this helps your unit by not having to continually replace the cool air escaping from your home, thus lowering strain.

Keeping your blinds closed can also help keep the cold while blocking the blazing sun rays. This helps your unit maintain a consistent temperature in your home without working overtime to combat the daytime heat.

With all this being said, occasionally, even with all these tips and tricks, malfunctions occur. Or even at times, systems are just frankly too old to continue providing the cooling you need. We want to send a gentle reminder that if you are considering replacing or getting a new air conditioner in time for summer, now is the time to start thinking about that. Last year we all can remember how hot it got here in the lower mainland and the craze that ensued for everyone trying to get their hands on an air conditioning unit or trying to find someone who could fix theirs. Unfortunately, as demand for everything continues to climb, this remains the case for HVAC. If possible, the coming weeks are the time to schedule an air conditioning service or quote.
