The weather warmed up earlier than proper last Springtime.
All of us occasionally still have snow on the ground at Easter.
This year, I was already running the cooling system. The season was especially hot, dry as well as brutally humid. All of us correctly saw un-even temperatures in the triple digits, as well as there was honestly little breeze. The cooling system ran just about regularly. My electric bills were much higher than normal. I wasn’t overly alarmed by the increase in utility costs because of the weather. I knew the cooling system was carrying a larger workload. I didn’t get worried until I observed that my youngsters were frequently sneezing as well as complaining of headaches. My husband mentioned that his allergy symptoms were especially bad. I might not have blamed the cooling system but there was also a strange, musty smell coming from the vents. With the potential threat to indoor air conditions, I immediately stressed service from a local Heating as well as Air Conditioning supplier. The contractor opened up the outdoor component as well as showed me the accumulation of debris inside. There was a significant buildup of dust as well as mold growth. There was algae flourishing in the condensate drain. The contractor told me that the contaminants were restricting airflow as well as forcing the cooling system to cycle longer as well as use more energy. Plus, the harmful toxins were easily becoming airborne as well as getting spread throughout the home. My family was breathing them in. Fortunately, a thorough cleaning fixed all of these concerns. The contractor requested that I sign up for a service plan that includes an annual inspection, cleaning as well as adjustment of the cooling system.
