For most people preparing for the fall means doing back to school shopping, raking leaves, cleaning the gutters, drinking pumpkin spiced lattes and a litany of other things. For every homeowner this list should also include fall air conditioner maintenance.

Key Fall Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

  • Change Your Air Filter: Changing the air filter is important. A dirty air filter can result in quite a few problems for your air conditioner, the main one being an inability to cool your home. Fast-forward to the first time in the spring you decide to turn on your air conditioner and all you get is warm air. By changing your filter now you can avoid potential problems and allow cool air to circulate throughout your home.
  • Clean It Good: After a full summer of use your air conditioner builds up a lot of dirt and grime. While changing the filter is a good first step it’s also important to give it a good cleaning. Wipe down the inner coils, outer casings, and removing and leaves or other debris that’s inside your unit is a great way to ensure it’s ready for the spring.
  • Scheduled Maintenance: One of the most important things you can do before tucking your air conditioner in for a long winter’s nap is to call a professional technician from Novel Care to take a look. Professional air conditioner maintenance is the best way to keep your air conditioner working properly and efficiently. It’s also the best way to find and fix problems while they’re small, so they don’t cost you big time in the spring.
  • Air Conditioner Replacement: If your air conditioner is getting on in years you might need to start thinking about replacing it. One of the best times of the year to purchase a new air conditioner is in the fall when prices are lower. Most homeowners wait until the spring or summer to buy new units and manufacturers know this.

The air conditioner and furnace in your home are important components of your overall HVAC system. If any element of that system needs repairs, maintenance or to be upgraded it’s important to take action. Waiting too long to replace your air conditioner and furnace can result in your entire system working too hard, and ultimately costing you more money than necessary.

When your air conditioner and furnace are operating inefficiently they also face an increased potential of breaking down prematurely, which could happen when you need them most. The easiest way to keep this from happening is to ensure that your air conditioner and furnace are regularly maintained and replaced when your HVAC technician recommends. Working with a company like Novel Care means that you’ve got over 30 years of experience working for you, and you can trust that they understand when your components need fixing or replacing.

How Old are Your Air Conditioner and Furnace?

If your air conditioner is over 15 years old and your furnace is over 10 years old then it’s probably time you called Novel Care for an inspection and a free estimate on repairs, maintenance or replacement. When replacement is happening it’s also an ideal time to assess your duct system to see if it can be reconfigured to function better and increase the efficiency of your system.

Air conditioner and furnace technology has come a long way over the past 10-15 years, so if you’re running an older unit that’s coming close to its due date it’s the perfect time to think about replacing it. Old units might be reliable, but they can also be very inefficient and be costing you lots of extra money on your energy bill. Newer units are rated according to a SEER rating which indicated how efficient they are. The higher the rating the greater your energy savings will be.

Finally, one of the main indications that you need a new air conditioner or furnace is if your system is in a constant need of repairs. A new air conditioner and furnace can save you up to 25% on your energy bills, so waiting to replace them is only costing you more.

Panasonic ductless air conditioners are highly respected in the ductless air conditioning industry. Their products are well-built, provide a number of different features, and are known for being very energy-efficient.

Panasonic ductless air conditioners are also known for being whisper-quiet, which is important especially since they all have heat pumps.

Panasonic Ductless Air Conditioner Features

Panasonic units utilize inverter technology, which means they use less energy while providing excellent levels of comfort. Inverter technology allows the unit to adjust the speed of the compressor motor depending on the demand placed on the unit. When a unit is merely maintaining a temperature maximum power isn’t needed so it operates at a lower capacity, saving you money on your energy bill.

All Panasonic units include a 3M anti-microbial filter that ensures more than 99% of allergens and other airborne particles are captured.

These ductless air conditioners are ideal for bedrooms, offices, and pretty much anywhere else noise can be a problem as they’re incredibly quiet. Every unit has a quiet button that instantly reduces the dB level by 5 dB.

Panasonic Ductless Air Conditioners Human Detection

ECONAVI is the human detection technology that Panasonic has included in some of its ductless air units. This technology allows the unit to understand when humans are in the room so it can adjust the temperature accordingly. If it sees that no one has been in the room for an extended period of time it switches to an energy-saving setting. Essentially, this feature helps the unit save you money.

Did your air conditioner let you down over the past few weeks when you needed it most?

How Old is Your Air Conditioner?

The typical lifespan of central air conditioners is 15 – 20 years, which is heavily dependent on the maintenance and repairs that take place over the years.
