Maintain the Goodman AC Condenser in Shape

HVAC SystemsYou'll find your condenser in the huge, square unit outside your home. Remember, good airflow is crucial for both condenser coils and evaporator. Both components transfer heat and debris or dirt hinder their capacity to do this.

The most common threat for condenser units is an accumulation of yard debris on its fins. This typically takes the form of fallen leaves, grass clippings, pet hair, and twigs that make it harder for your unit to release heat. This decreases your AC's energy efficiency and strains the condenser and other constituents. We recommend you examine the condenser occasionally and if you recognize debris accumulation, shut off power to the entire system and clean the fins gently with a stiff brush. The best way to maintain and clean your condenser is by engaging professional services. Our technicians will use a safe solution specifically made for HVAC equipment and straighten out your condenser fins begins giving your system a tune-up.

Keep Your Registers and Vents Clear and Open

1.5 TON 13 Seer Goodman Air Conditioner CondenserIt's tempting to conceal unappealing vents in your home, but your vents will have to work harder when they aren't clear, leading to higher electricity costs. You might have heard the notion that closing off vents in minimally used rooms can save you money on heating and cooling. We find that this false belief is causing the underperformance of numerous homeowner's HVAC systems.

Your HVAC system, including every ductwork, is specifically for your house. Regardless of the number of registers and vents that are closed or open, a similar amount of cold or warm air will be pushed through the air ducts. By closing off or blocking vents, you're increasing the pressure in your system, which could cause system breakdowns and force air leaks in the ductwork.

Change the Air Filter Regularly

Maintaining your ac unit is all about sustaining airflow. That's why it's imperative you change your system's air filter regularly. Filter packages typically state a recommended replacement schedule (every 90 days or so) but it actually depends on how much your unit is running and whether the air is dirty. During hot seasons, it may be helpful to change your air filter more often. You'll discover the process is as simple as sliding the old filter and sliding the new one in. Regular changing or cleaning of your air filter will ensure optimal filtration, increase your machine's life, and give you peace of mind.

Run Your Air Conditioner More Economically

Setting your unit as comfortable as possible and using your programmable thermostat to hike temperature when you're asleep or out could easily decrease your cooling costs by 10% during summer. Keep in mind that the smaller the difference between outdoor and indoor temperatures throughout summer, less you will spend. Set your unit's thermostat to 780F instead of 720 F and save as much as 18% in cooling costs.

Avoid heat accumulation throughout the day

When the outdoor temperature surpasses your home's indoor temperature, try to avoid activities that produce a lot of heat, for instance, using the clothes dryer or dishwasher and cooking on the stovetop. Try to perform these tasks after dark once temperatures have decreased. Keep in mind that stereos, computers, and TVs are also huge heat-generators.

Close blinds, curtains, and shades

When lowered and closed completely on a sunny window, extremely reflective blinds can decrease heat gain by approximately 45%. If you want to save money and still enjoy a cool and comfortable home, consider these tips.
