If you have pets, you are more likely to have air quality issues in your house. This is because their fur or dander can get and stay in the air. Animals can also bring in dirt, dust, or pollen that can make its way throughout the home. How can you keep the air as clean as possible?

 

Sweep and Vacuum Regularly


The easiest way to keep fur or other particles out of the air is to keep such items off the floor or from getting deep into the carpet. This can be done by regularly sweeping wood floors or by vacuuming carpets to remove as much fur, dander, and other particles as possible. It may be a good idea to have floors professionally cleaned on a monthly or quarterly basis.

 

 

Groom Your Pets


Brushing your pet or having its coat trimmed can help to reduce the amount of fur that it sheds in the house. It may also be a good idea to have your pet wear boots or a coat when it goes outside. This can keep the fur dry, which makes it less likely that anything will stick to it. If it can’t stick to your animal, there’s less of a chance that it can be brought inside.

 

 

Have Air Filters Replaced Every 30 Days


Under normal conditions, you can generally keep an air filter in place for about 90 days. However, at Dave Broussard A/C & Heating in Broussard, we recommend changing air filters on a more frequent basis if you have pets. This helps circulate dander-free air throughout your home.

 

If you are looking to keep your home's air safe to breathe, we can help you change your air filter, repair a heater, or maintain an air conditioner. We can also install insulation or a generator to ensure that your home is able to function as it should all year long. Call Dave Broussard A/C & Heating today to set up an appointment.

It is very common for homeowners to overwork their AC system. This can cause the unit to break down, or at least cause parts to wear out more quickly than they should. Unfortunately, many homeowners are not familiar with the signs that they are overworking their air conditioners. Key signs may include the AC unit freezing over or the system failing to get the temperature down to what you have specified. To learn more about the signs that your AC system is being overworked, read on.

 

The AC Unit Freezes Over


It is quite common for AC units to freeze over. Some owners may think that this is simply indicating that the AC unit is keeping their house nice and cool. However, they may not know that it is actually a problem. However, an AC unit that freezes over is a symptom of one of several different problems. One of the possible issues causing an AC to freeze over is that the system is being overworked. If your AC unit is frozen over, raise your specified temperature and see if the frost clears up. If the frost is still there, contact a professional for repair or replacement services. 

 

 

Your AC Unit Cannot Get Down to Your Specified Temperature


If you set a low temperature and your AC unit simply could not get down to it, it will be overworked. This is because AC units usually turn off when they have achieved the desired temperature and only turn on to maintain it. If your AC unit is constantly working to maintain an impossibly cold temperature, it will be straining quite hard. As previously mentioned, this could lead to a breakdown in the AC system if it continues for an extended period of time.

If an air conditioner has a broken motor, it may not be able to properly cool your home. Therefore, it is important to learn the signs of motor issues so that the problem can be fixed in a timely manner. Here are just a few symptoms that are easy to notice.

 

The Fan Blades Aren't Turning

 

When the air conditioner is on, the fan blades should be running at full speed. If they are not moving at all, there is likely a problem with the air conditioner motor. Fortunately, this is a problem that the folks at Dave Broussard A/C & Heating can help to fix. It is also possible to replace the entire air conditioning unit if necessary.

 

The Condenser Unit Is Louder Than Usual

 

The condenser unit will tend to give off a loud rattling noise when the AC motor is not working properly. When they're working properly, the fan blades will tend to whir at a consistent volume and frequency.

 

The Fan Blades Are Only Working Sporadically

 

One common sign of an AC motor problem is the fact that the fan blades will only work for a short period of time. However, before you assume that the problem is related to the AC motor, be sure to check the thermostat. This is because an air conditioner unit will stop running when the air is sufficiently cool inside the house.

 

There Is No Cold Air Being Created

 

A final sign that there could be a problem with an AC motor is that the air is still warm. When you stand by an air vent when the air conditioner is running, you should be able to feel noticeably colder air on your skin. If the AC motor is dead or dying, your rooms will be cooled unevenly, and your utility bill will be on the rise.
