The More You Know About Your AC, The Better

Happy couple enjoying their air conditioning unit.

The more you know about your HVAC system, the better you can take car of them—much like your car. AC units and furnaces often get overlooked in general home maintenance since they are mostly out of sight and run behind the scenes.

Let’s look at a few things about your AC unit that you may not know:

An air conditioner doesn’t create cool air
What happens in the process is actually the removal of heat from the air. Your AC uses a chemical called refrigerant to remove heat and transfer it outside. The warm air runs through the lines and coils in your unit and goes form liquid to gas and back again and in this process the refrigerant removes the heat and transfers it elsewhere so that when the air comes out the other side it is cool.

Your AC will remove humidity
Lower humidity helps the overall comfort level by making you feel cooler, even if the temperature is the same.

Your air filter needs to be checked and replaced every 3-6 months (depending on manufacturer’s recommendations)
A dirty air filter restricts your air flow, which reduces efficiency, costing you money. Over time this can put stress on your unit and could lead to a costly repair.

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance
Just like a car your HVAC system needs regular checkups to keep it running in tip-top shape. Having regular annual preventative maintenance will bring your system longer life and fewer breakdowns over time.
