Dallas Spot Cooler Company Offers Tips to Ensure HVAC Systems are Ready for Summer – Tip Sheet by Portable Rental Solutions
Tips help businesses prepare their air conditioning systems for a hot Texas summer
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
With a hot summer just around the corner, now is the time for Texans to make sure their air conditioning systems are in good working order, says Shane McCourt, regional sales manager for Portable Rental Solutions, a leading provider of portable spot coolers. McCourt has created a list of tips to help companies ensure their HVAC system is ready for hot weather.
“Many people don´t realize that different parts of their HVAC system are working during winter and summer,” says McCourt. “Your heating unit may have been working all winter, but the air conditioning has been sitting idle for months.”
McCourt says that air conditioning systems can degrade while idle, and these changes can reduce the efficiency of the unit.
“Your AC may seem to be fine during May, but that reduced efficiency is putting a strain on the unit,” says McCourt. “Once the temperature hits 100 degrees, that strain can cause the system to fail.”
He offers the following tips:
1. Check refrigerant levels. Refrigerant can slowly leak from the system, even when the air conditioning is not in use.
2. Change your air filters. This is the easiest thing people can do to keep their air conditioning in good working order. Dirty filters reduce airflow, which makes the air conditioning system work harder to maintain a cool temperature.
3. Clean the outside of the unit. Make sure the compressor is free of debris, and wipe dust and dirt from the coils. McCourt says that dirty coils reduce the system´s efficiency.
4. Check the condensation drain. If the drain has become clogged, water can overflow and damage the unit.
5. Have a contingency plan. Systems can still fail because of age, electrical problems or other reasons.
McCourt says that it can be difficult to find a repair technician during a heat wave, when heavy use causes many systems to fail. It can also take days for the technician to order replacement parts. Companies should know where to find emergency cooling systems if that happens.
“Do your research now and know what type of system you´ll need if you do have a failure.” says McCourt.
