Consumer tips for maintaining your AC system in Florida
At AC/DC Air Conditioning, Discount Cool we are interested in making sure you get the most out of your existing equipment. The following list of tips were put together by Bob and Wayne in response to common situations that we come across with residential customers. If you follow these basic tips and schedule regular air conditioning maintenance your equipment will last much longer.
- Replace your filter on a regular basis.
- Try not to short cycle your unit.
- Have your unit serviced by a licensed company twice a year.
Benefits of an Annual Maintenance Service include:
- Increased energy efficiency. Reduce your electric bills by 20% or more.
Annual preventative maintenance enables your system to use energy more efficiently. System maintenance includes cleaning the cooling coils, blades and other components. Clean cooling coils generate cool air more efficiently. The system uses less energy to produce cool air, costing you less to operate the unit.
- Prolong the life of your equipment. Replacement can be costly!
Regular maintenance will keep your system running well over its entire lifecycle. Many HVAC professionals report that one of the main reasons that HVAC systems fail before the end of their estimated lifecycle is because of lack of maintenance. Maintain your system each year and your system will maintain your comfort for years to come.
- Reduce costly repairs; detect problems sooner rather than later!
When you have your heating system and air conditioner regularly maintained, you reduce the chances that you will face a costly emergency repair in the future. An inspection of your equipment is included in every maintenance inspection. The technician checks for damaged or worn parts and will notify you of any need for a part replacement. You can replace the part to prevent further damage and avoid a possible emergency service call.
Cleaning and maintenance will also extend the life of your compressor. The compressor is a major component of the system and can be a very costly repair. With heavy use, dirt and film collect on the cleaning coils. Dirty cleaning coils cause the compressor to work harder to compress the refrigerant. By having the coils cleaned during annual air conditioner maintenance, you can reduce the demand on the compressor and avoid a major repair.
