Become An Ace At Maintaining Your Air Conditioner
Summertime in Ohio can be brutal with muggy days and temperatures soaring well into the 90s. However, summer also offers great opportunity to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities and hobbies such as golf. After a long day outside, be sure you are coming back to a cool, comfortable home. Is your air conditioner up to par?
In honor of the Memorial Tournament, one of the most celebrated annual events in Columbus, OH, one of our experts, Jeff M. has some tips for you to make sure that your air conditioning is ready to go once the summer heat hits in full swing this season. Watch the video and read below:
Ensure Your HVAC System Is Up To Par
There are standards and benchmarks in golf, and the same goes for HVAC. Scheduling annual maintenance is a great way to make sure your system is ready to handle warmer temperatures. Regular service checks allow our air conditioning service technicians the ability to identify potential problems before the summer heat settles into our region. Routine maintenance also aids in keeping comfort levels as efficient as possible and your indoor air even healthier through the addition of indoor air quality products such as UV-light systems and electronic air cleaners. Logan Services has service experts that will inspect the condition of the A/C, test various control/ components to make sure they are properly functioning, and make necessary adjustments for optimum performance.
Warning: Don't hire just any hacker for HVAC maintenance. Be sure to find a trusted professional that regularly serves your community. Read Google reviews to get third party opinions about the company's work history and its reputation.
One of the coolest sounds in sports is when the golf crowd is silent and you can hear the whoosh of the golf club and the ping of the iron hitting the ball. Sounds (both good and bad) are noticeable, and no one likes a noisy air conditioner. While your indoor air may feel comfortable, excessive noise may be indicating that there are underlying problems with your A/C. Issues that can contribute to loud sounds from the air conditioner include old age, the A/C being unbalanced, a worn-out part, or lack of maintenance. Requesting a service call is one way you can get to the bottom of what's causing noise from your system.
Don't Let Humidity Ruin Your A/C A-Game
Nothing feels better than coming inside to a cool beverage and ice-cold air conditioning after a hot day on the golf course. However, during an Ohio summer, excessive humidity can quickly pose a threat to your air conditioning A-game. Make sure your air conditioner is capable of wringing out humidity. Logan Services offers a variety of Trane air conditioners with staged and multi-stage technology designed for eliminating up to four times (4x) the humidity in your home. The goal should not be to move the air quickly through your system. Instead, these units allow air to roll slowly and efficiently across the a-coil. This helps remove moisture from your home. Less humidity will lead to drier air, and drier air will make your home feel cooler.
Take A Swing At Air Conditioning Replacement
Nobody likes taking a mulligan (a do-over shot), but it may be time to replace your air conditioner. Our 'par' on repairs is three. More than three service calls in one season strongly suggests it's time for system replacement. If your air conditioner is running a bit rough, let an HVAC professional at Logan Services help get you back 'in the zone'. Replacing your A/C with a system customized for your home will help eliminate hot and cold spots and lead to consistent temperatures from room to room.
Save Some Green
You want to aim for a low score out on the golf course. Try to achieve the same with your utility usage. Many different things can contribute to the energy efficiency of your HVAC system including the SEER rating. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficiently a unit operates. Age may also have a lot to do with performance (as it unfortunately also can effect performance on the golf course). If your A/C is 15 years or older, it might be time into a more energy-efficient HVAC system.
