Paramount's Guide to Preparing Your HVAC System for Reno's Hot Summers


Understanding Your HVAC System:

1. AC Unit Inspection:

  • How It Works: The air conditioner extracts heat from your home and releases it outside, creating a cooling effect.

  • Why It Matters: Before the heat hits its peak, Paramount recommends inspecting your AC unit for debris, leaves, or any obstructions around the condenser. This ensures proper airflow and efficient heat dissipation, preventing overworking of the system.

2. Filter Focus:

  • How It Works: Air filters trap dust and particles, ensuring clean air and protecting HVAC components.

  • Why It Matters: Summer brings increased allergens and dust. Regularly replacing or cleaning air filters is crucial to maintain optimal airflow and prevent the system from working harder than necessary.

3. Ductwork Examination:

  • How It Works: Ducts distribute cooled air throughout your home, and leaks can lead to energy waste.

  • Why It Matters: Inspect your ductwork for leaks or damage, as these can compromise efficiency. Paramount recommends sealing any leaks and insulating ducts to prevent cool air loss.

4. Thermostat Calibration:

  • How It Works: The thermostat regulates temperature settings, instructing the HVAC system when to turn on or off.

  • Why It Matters: Calibrate your thermostat to ensure accurate temperature readings, preventing unnecessary cooling and energy waste. Paramount encourages homeowners to consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat for precise control.

5. Condenser Unit Care:

  • How It Works: The condenser releases heat outside, a crucial step in the cooling process.

  • Why It Matters: Check the condenser unit for any signs of wear or damage, and clear the area around it for unobstructed airflow. Paramount emphasizes the importance of professional condenser coil cleaning for optimal efficiency.

6. Refrigerant Levels Check:

  • How It Works: Refrigerant is essential for the cooling process, absorbing and releasing heat.

  • Why It Matters: Low refrigerant levels can lead to inefficient cooling. Paramount recommends scheduling professional maintenance to check and, if necessary, recharge refrigerant levels.
