Denver summers are a double-edged sword. We Coloradoans love to get out and enjoy the summer sun, but the heat, dryness in the air and afternoon thunderstorms through July and August can make cooling your home—and maintaining comfortable humidity inside—a difficult feat.
If your external air condenser unit or home cooling system is acting up, Right Away Heating & Cooling is here to solve even the toughest of problems. But, more often than not, a few simple maintenance checks and repairs at the start of the cooling season go a long way.
With scheduled maintenance, we’ll help you identify problems with your home cooling system and restore it to peak performance before the summer heat is truly upon us.
Not every inspection is the same, but here are the top three reasons a home cooling system can underperform:
A Broken or Misprogrammed Thermostat
A good thermostat is the brain to a top-of-the-line home cooling system. Right Away Heating & Cooling can fix or reprogram your current thermostat in no time, but depending on the home, installing a digital thermostat can lead to increased performance and money saved over time. Broken thermostats either don’t reach desired temperatures or simply cause your system to cycle more than it should—or not enough. Let our technicians at Right Away help!
Dirty or Clogged Condensers
The beautiful thing about living in Denver is how green our state is! But with all the trees and plants that thrive in the high desert, a lot of dust, debris, and pollen make their way into our yards and air conditioning units. Simple cleaning procedures can be done on your own, but tougher jobs should be left to the experts, so as not to damage or compromise your unit. Cleaner units also help filter cleaner air through your home, keeping your family healthy and cool all summer long.
A Dirty Air Filter
If airflow through your home seems lackluster, the culprit could be an air filter or duct leak. Air filters are built for one-way airflow, causing them to get pretty dirty over time. It’s important to check your system’s air filter once a month. If you’re having trouble locating your air filter, give Right Away a call and we’ll lead you to the right place! We’re happy to replace old, dirty filters and talk about your available options for a newer, long-lasting (or permanent) filter option.
