We have provided some general AC tips this week to help you get the most out of your air conditioner.

Proper Installation

An air conditioning installation is not a DIY job. If your AC system is installed correctly by a professional Santa Monica air conditioning technician, it will perform efficiently for years with only minor routine maintenance. However, many air conditioners are not installed correctly due to a lack of experience by the installer or homeowners who try to do it themselves. As a result, you could be facing costly repairs, or your air conditioner will not perform as well.

Make Sure your AC System has Proper Airflow

Your installer should allow for adequate indoor space for the installation, maintenance, and repair of the new system, and install your system on a level surface. The installer should also size the system and ductwork so that there are enough supply registers to deliver cool air and proper airflow. You can help by regularly changing air filters and making sure nothing is blocking airflow.

Duct Sealing

Make sure all your air ducts are sealed with mastic. Contrary to popular belief, duct tape will not get the job done. Proper sealing methods must be used to get a good seal and stop air leaks.

Keep Thermostats Away from Heat Sources.

While we don’t recommend that you install thermostats yourself, if you have, make sure you place them away from heat sources, such as windows that get a lot of sunlight. We also provide thermostat repair and upgrades if you have concerns about the thermostats in your home.
