Myrtle Beach Air Conditioning Repair: Preparing Your AC Unit For Fall
The Fall season is officially here in Myrtle Beach. The blistering heat lastly a few weeks longer than usual, but most of us here in South Carolina are happy to see the temperature drop a bit. What does all of this mean for your AC unit? Well, that's what we are here to tell you! Continue reading to check out a few tips from our Myrtle Beach air conditioning repair company:
Change Your Air Filters
It's a good idea to change your air filters monthly, but even more so in the Fall. This season brings more allergens and pathogens than any other, so you want to do what you can to elimintate airborne fall allergens. If left unchanged, they become ineffective and the indoor air quality will be very poor.
When you adjust your clocks for Daylight Savings Time, change the temperature settings on your AC's thermostat as well. When the temperature outside drops, you should decrease or increase the temperature based on your comfort. This might sound obvious, but it's something that will help your unit.
The Heat Is On
Even though you may not be ready for it, it's important to turn on your heat earlier than you need it. When you crank it up for the first time, you will notice a burnt smell. This is normal! It's simply the smell of stagnant dust being burnt from being stagnant over the past few months. If it doesn't go away quickly, please give Beach Air a call because something could be wrong.
Clean Up, Clean Up
Aside from a few items that need to be done inside, don't forget about the work that needs to be done outside. We recommend that you remove the debris surrounding your condenser unit. Dirt, leaves, grass, weeds and grime all build up around your unit. This can disrupt a steady airflow and reduce the efficiency of your system during the Fall and Winter months.
It's the small things that add up when dealing with your AC unit. If you encounter any issues as you work through this list, please call Beach Air, your go-to Myrtle Beach air conditioning repair company!
