Monsoon season in Arizona is a reality we all live with. These weather events can have an impact even on your air conditioner. Here are some ways to keep things cool when monsoon season hits your home.
This season brings with it more lightning. Because of that, you’ll want to protect your home systems. One of the best ways to do this is with a whole-home surge protection system. We can help you fix your air conditioner after a surge, but wouldn’t it be better to prevent problems altogether?
Leaks in Windows and Doors
When using air conditioners, you want to make sure that everything is sealed up around doors and windows. During monsoon season this takes on added importance because you don’t want water and dirt getting in through cracks in doors and windows. Seal up any openings you see around doors and windows. Not only will you keep your home safe and dry, but you’ll also save money on your air conditioning bill.
Because of the large amounts of dust that gets thrown around during a haboob, you’ll want to make sure that you have an ample supply of air filters. This keeps your AC unit working safely and efficiently and keeps dirt from causing maintenance issues with the interior parts of your home’s systems.
This is one area where dust can wreak havoc. If enough gets into your air conditioners drain lines, you could have a clog in the line. That leads to excess moisture in the drain pan. When that happens, you deal with two things. First, the AC unit doesn’t work as well cooling your home. Second, the buildup of water could lead to damage in your home.
Monsoon season is just one of the reasons why your AC unit could use regular maintenance.
