This is what you’re going to look like this summer if your HVAC breaks. In a word, hot.
All jokes aside the reality is that having to replace or repair your AC while it’s hot is a huge hassle and can make life pretty uncomfortable. Waiting for parts or dealing with installation, even with a quick turnaround time, can leave you with at least a few days in the heat. Not to mention that this summer is going to be another hot one. The Farmer’s Almanac predicts a hot summer with temperatures in the 90s regularly. We suggest you get ahead of any potential issues by making sure your AC is ready to work before temps get too high. Let’s look at some things you can do to get your HVAC, specifically your AC, summer-ready!
Our biggest recommendation is to have a professional out for a quick check/tune-up. Doing these kinds of check-in twice a year, around the season changing, can help ensure that your unit is ready to work. Professionals can check things prior to use to ensure that they’re ready to function rather than waiting and having an issue pop up. These check-ins can allow for quick repair and will help eliminate the need for repairs later this summer. Miller’s HVAC professionals are happy to come out and check your AC. After you get the okay you can rest assured that your summer will stay cool.
Another suggestion is to consider upgrading your AC unit. The Department of Energy recommends that you update your unit every 10-15 years to ensure that it’s functioning at its best. That means if you have lived in your home for several years or bought an older home you may be in need of an upgrade. An upgraded unit may even help you save money in the long run as it will likely function more efficiently than an old unit. Miller’s experts can also help you pick and install a new unit for your home before the summer!
Overall, the message we want you to take away from this is that your HVAC will take care of you if you take care of it. Regular maintenance and cleaning can help your HVAC to last longer and also keep you cool better. If you feel your HVAC is barely hanging on, don’t wait. Our HVAC experts are happy to walk you through the process of finding a new unit that suits your home’s needs. For questions or to schedule an appointment with our experts call (804) 758-4314!
