We’re looking at sunny skies and 85F already, and it is only 8am.
- I bet the two of us hit close to 100F in the day this month with the heat index taken into account.
This month is a great day to check our heating and A/C system to make sure everything is okay with it. I have a digital thermometer to measure the air coming from the vents to see if it is within the range it should be. I suppose the temperature from the a/c’s vents should be about twenty degrees lower than the ambient temperature in the room; however, don’t quote myself and others on that. If the air isn’t that chilly then most likely the system is dirty and maybe the filter needs cleaning too. I assume that the condenser grill on the air handler gets a lot of dust and grime on it, which makes the heating and A/C cooling system lose its cooling capabilities. This, in turn, causes the system to run a lot longer to cool down the house, costing you more money in power bills. And on sizzling afternoons prefer this the home never seems to get chilly enough for me, so I am going to nip it in the bud and make sure the system is also clean and working at maximum efficiency. I have some free time this month because it is way too sizzling out to do anything and I am on vacation for more than one more week here with not a lot to do. I’m at our dad’s home and she has more than one immense commercial cooling system to keep the home cool.
