Summertime AC maintenance need to knows
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Summer months bring along summer heat. They also bring along potential problems without the proper upkeep.
In your home it’s good to make sure your a/c gets a summer checkup
“A big thing is to have it setup on a maintenance contract or at least one time maintenance we do a twice a year maintenance contract we come out and check everything out check your filters clear the colliers inside and out and just make sure your unit is operating properly,” Brannon Woodall, Bob Woodall Air Care System Resident Sales, says.
As vacations are planned your car is just as important.
“We need to make sure that our coolant system works very well there’s a lot as aspects to the vehicle that needs to be checked. belts and hoses any kind of rubber components can really be affected by heat,” says Dwight Gilly, Rick Automotive Services.
If unchecked, they can result in unwanted circumstances.
“if you have a stopped up filter your unit could freeze up dirty colliers could cause the same thing also the dirtier the colliers the dirtier the filter the higher your power bill is going to be,” Woodall says.
We all know there is one thing we need in Alabama, especially going on a road trip
“Is air conditioning, we’ve gotta have that working,” says Gilly.
To make sure this doesn’t happen to you all you have to do is watch out for these symptoms.
“Your thermostat is blank especially if you have what we call a safety switch on the drain your thermostat will be blank because it will cut the unit off which means drain is stopped up,” says Woodall.
Also pay attention to your senses while in your car.
“Any kind of smells burning smells or anything of that nature need to be address squeaking squealing anything like that is also very important,” says Gilly.
By keeping these in mind this summer it could save you in the long run.
