4 tips to keep your ac running smoothly this summer

The summer months bring later sunsets, bluer skies, and of course, the heat. You quickly begin to rely on your air conditioner to keep you cool and refreshed, but we've all dealt with air conditioner troubles. Louie's Home Center has some tips to keep your AC running smoothly this summer:

Keep The Air Filter Clean

The purpose of an air filter is to keep fresh, clean air circulating throughout your AC. Air filters trap in dust, dirt, bacteria, and pollen that is trying to make its way into your home. It's important to replace your air filters on a regular basis to keep everyone in your home healthy.

How often you change your air filters depends on the type of filter that is required for your home. Depending on how many people you have living in your home, if you have pets, etc. will dictate when you need to replace your air filters.

Check On The Outside Unit

One of the most effective ways to keep your air conditioner running smoothly is to check and clean the outdoor unit. Over time, leaves, dirt, and other various objects can collect in your outdoor filter and need to be removed. Outdoor air units take in refrigerants, these refrigerants flow throughout the unit and turn hot air into cold air. It is recommended that you clean your outdoor air unit every year.

Watch Out For Foul Odors

We've all been in a situation where you turn on your air conditioner and a terrible odor emits and spreads throughout your home. There are various smells that dictate what is wrong with your air unit.

Eggs

If you begin to smell an egg-like odor coming from your air conditioner, it is likely that there is a deceased animal in your air ducts. The solution to this problem is to either remove or have someone else remove the animal from the air ducts.

Dirty Laundry

If you turn on your AC and it smells like a group of teenagers who have been at soccer practice all day, it means that you have mildew growing on your evaporator coil. To get rid of this smell, you will need to give your evaporator coil and ducts a thorough cleaning. This, however, can be a temporary solution. Some air units are prone to developing mildew.

Perform Regular Maintenance

While you can go in and tackle some of the maintenance projects yourself, every year you should have a professional come and deep clean your air conditioning unit.

Swamp cooler in Fallon.What’s Cooler than Being Cool?

For those on the fence, we put together a list of the best reasons to buy a swamp cooler this summer.

Monthly Operating Costs

Let’s be honest, sometimes one of the best reasons to get a swamp cooler in Fallon is to save money. According to ConsumerEnergyCenter.org, swamp coolers use up to 75 percent less energy than air conditioning, saving on average about $150 a year. Use those savings for the next vacation with family and friends.

Choose Where Cool Happens

An air conditioner will generally take longer to cool the house and it may take a while to meet your level of comfort and satisfaction. Mobile swamp coolers eliminate that problem by targeting your area of recreation, cooling the air in a few minutes.
This benefit is for those choosing a mobile swamp cooling system.

Big Swamp Coolers are Much Cheaper than a New Air Condition System

For those considering a big swamp cooler to replace an air conditioning unit, you’ll find the savings to be worth it. According to the National Association of Home Builders, a big swamp cooler costs between $700 and $1,000, whereas central air conditioning units tend to cost several thousand dollars.

Better for a Dry Climate

Simply put, swamp coolers use moisture to produce fresh, clean air. Nevada has always been a dry climate, but adding a little moisture to your room can benefit your skin’s complexion.

The Debate is on!

Summer means two things; charcoal or gas grills. Whichever you lean toward, there are a couple of things to consider on your to-do list before shopping for a grill. Before heading down to Louie’s ACE consider the cost, convenience, safety, and flavor.

Grill and Operating Cost
When thinking about basic models, charcoal grills will be less expensive than gas grills. When considering the operating cost between the two, it is less expensive to have a gas grill. Gas grills run on either natural gas or propane canisters and it is less expensive to operate a gas grill than a charcoal grill since charcoal is an expensive fuel type.
Grill Safety
According to the National Fire Protection Agency, more accidents happen with charcoal grills than gas grills but serious injuries are said to occur with gas grills. Charcoal grills are light in weight and tend to tip over more often than gas grills. For the most part, injuries occur due to the use of starter fuel.
Fuel the Flames Responsibly
When starting the grill, people tend to put too much fuel on charcoal causing huge flare ups. Avoid adding more fuel to the charcoal after it has already been lit. Also, buying charcoal that has already been soaked in starter fuel can reduce the risk of injuries with charcoal grills.

As for gas grills the use of starter fuel is out of the picture but there are some things to consider. Always read the user manual before operating your grill and learn basics like how to turn it on and off properly. Be mindful of leaving the gas on too long before pressing the ignition button could cause a flare up. Make sure there are no leaks coming from the gas container or hoses before you start the grill.
For more on safety ask the good folks at Louie’s Ace for assistance. charcoal grill at Louie's Ace
Flavor- It is all up to your taste buds
This part is really up to you and your guests. If you are looking for the smoky taste, then charcoal grills are the way to go. This type of grill is considered to have a more natural flavor. By adding flavored wood chips to charcoal grills, you will have everyone asking for seconds and maybe thirds! Charcoal grills are more convenient for red meats whereas gas grills are better for chicken, fish, and veggies.
Which side are you on?
If it still seems like a tough call, contact Louie’s Ace or come on in and ask one of our friendly staff members.
