Now that warmer weather is upon us here in the Rockies, it’s important to ensure your home’s AC air conditioning spring checklist is in order and that your air conditioning system is ready for the months ahead. We highly recommend that you have your AC system serviced and inspected yearly by a qualified HVAC company. In the meantime, here are a few things homeowners can check to prep the AC system for use.
Does your home have good indoor air quality? IAQ (indoor air quality) problems may arise from inadequate temperatures within the home, humidity levels, poor air circulation, filtration or ventilation system issues. Other factors that can contribute to poor IAQ are indoor air contaminants, such as chemicals, dust, mold or fungi, bacteria, gases, vapors and odors. In addition, lack of enough fresh air intake from the outdoors can compound the problem.
Often I am asked by Colorado Springs homeowners what the Best air conditioning system is to have installed in their home. Is it Trane? Lennox? Rheem? Amana? Or another brand entirely? I will then ask them what is it specifically they desire from a new AC system? Generally the answer is almost always the same….they want a system that will cool their home effectively, efficiently and one that’s dependable. Cost is also a consideration in many cases, although it is not always the deciding factor.
