Beat the Sydney Heat: 3 Tips to Help Your Split System AC Survive Summer

February is upon us and it’s the final stretch of summer in 2015. As the heat can get very intense in Sydney during this time of the year, it is a comfort that you can rely on your home air conditioning system to make you as cool and comfortable as possible at home.
But just as you rely on your air conditioning systems to help beat the heat as you stay indoors during summer, so too does it need help from you.

Below are 3 helpful tips to help split system ACs during the summer:

1. Change Your Filter
The filter is one of the most important parts of the air conditioner. Neglect it and your system will run inefficiently and soon break down at the most inconvenient time. It is imperative that you change the air filter once every three months—this means with every seasonal change.

2. Protect Your Air Ducts.
Whether they are flexible or metal ducts, there is always the possibility of leaks. If you notice your system isn’t cooling as efficiently, then you may very well have leaks. Fix them as soon as you can and prevent them from breaking by doing regular maintenance on your air conditioning system.

As an added measure, it is also advisable to insulate your ductwork. As they usually run through the attic where it can get very hot, they are very susceptible to leaks.

3. Check Refrigerant Levels
All air conditioning systems use refrigerant to remove hot air and cool down the house. Sometimes, refrigerant leaks can occur and cause your system to work twice as hard just to maintain the same indoor temperature levels. This can overwork the AC in time and cause problems.
