How to Extend the Life of Your Air Conditioning

Call Now for Maintenance Specials (954) 916-6640

Each air conditioning unit has a time where their peak performance begins to decline. Over the years, your system will experience wear and tear for many reasons. There are some guidelines that homeowners can follow to inflict less stress on their unit to keep it running for many years.

FilterClean the System

Keep dust and dirt out of your air conditioning unit with the proper cleaning. Whether it’s dusting inside or sweeping outside, the blockage will occur if dirt has room to build up near the unit. Changing out the air filter prevents debris from circulating through the house and into living areas. Blockages will put a strain on your unit’s performance.

Routine Maintenance

Regularly scheduled maintenance from a professional will keep substantial issues from arising. Of course, natural disasters and electrical shortages might not be as easily avoidable. However, having a professional carefully inspect everything from the inside out, then there’s no reason for homeowners to shell out a ton of money for extensive repairs that could have been prevented with routing maintenance

Keep Entryways Closed

AC_InstallationsAvoid letting copious amounts of humidity into your home because it will make your system kick into overdrive to keep your home fresh. It may be a little more difficult for residents because of the level of humidity throughout Florida, but it’s crucial to take that extra step. Moisture buildup in your house will ensure the growth of mold and mildew. Keep all your doors, and windows shut when not in use and guarantee that they have the proper seal, so air doesn’t seep through the cracks of your home.

Install a Mini-Split System

If you have a central air conditioning unit that’s working correctly, more power to you. If you need to update or install a brand-new system into your home, then a mini-split system with thermostat technology is a viable option. Mini-split systems allow homeowners to cool the living areas being used and warm the ones that are empty. This way, you’re saving energy, money, and strain on your unit.

Mini-Split AC System

The Mini-Split AC System

Mini-split air conditioning systems make the ability to control the heating and cooling temperatures in individual rooms or spaces extremely easy. Similar to central systems, mini-split units have two main components to it. An outdoor compressor and an indoor air-managing unit. The most common applications are in residential, commercial, and institutional buildings.

What are the Benefits?

First and foremost, mini-split systems are small and offer a wide range of flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling of individual rooms. Many models on the market have multiple air handling units connected to one outdoor unit. The total number will depend on the requirements for the building or each zone. Each of the zones will have a thermostat, so the space being used is the only one being conditioned. This will save money and energy by not cooling the rooms that aren’t in use.

They can be mounted almost anywhere within a room. The mini-split AC systems can be suspended from or mounted flush on the ceiling, or hung on a wall. They can be utilized in some unconventional areas like a home office, attic, or sunroom.

Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

Right away, you may be asking yourself what exactly is an HVAC system. HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning and it states the functions of the system. They are designed to provide thermal control and indoor comfort to the environment it inhabits. In Florida, stepping into any building, or home with air conditioning is an indescribable feeling. There are several types of HVAC systems that you can find in various areas.

Types

  • Split – This is named after the way that it’s set up. It is comprised of two separate units, a condenser, and an air handler. The condenser is located on the outside of your home and takes the heat from inside the house and transfers it outside. The air handler pushes refrigerant through to cool down your home.
  • Heat Pump – Pumps heat from the house and transfer it outside and vice versa if needed during the wintertime. Not ideal for constantly cold climates and is a variation on the traditional split system. They’re mostly found in condominiums.
  • Packaged Heating and AC System – Unit that has the two components of a split system packaged into one compact structure. It is a great alternative if you don’t have the space to fit a split A/C in your home. They are also typically mounted on the exterior of the home.

Benefits

Lower energy bills are a blessing throughout the scorching summers of Florida. You can expect a reasonable percentage off of your invoice and higher air efficiency by installing an HVAC in your home. It also helps you stay energy-conscious by reducing your carbon footprint. Specific rooms can be heated or cooled according to your liking with specific HVACs. If you own a single-family home, you may qualify for a FPC rebate.How much does installing a new air conditioner cost?

AC Installation

AC installation is an absolute necessity in some parts of the United States. This becomes especially true during the summer months. Newer air conditioning units tend to produce less sound, create a more powerful stream of cool air and use energy in a more efficient way. These benefits that come with buying a newer model come at a higher cost, however.
That is, there are some factors homeowners should consider when deciding on which air conditioning unit to buy. Here are some tips for finding the right AC installation.

How much does installing a new air conditioner cost? The Basics

Homeowners need to find out how large their air conditioning unit should be. Experts measure air conditioning units in “tons.” Tons refers to how much heat the AC unit can remove within a one-hour interval.

For example, a one-ton unit removes 12,000 British thermal units–abbreviated to BTUs–while a three-ton system removes 36,000. Essentially, the larger a user’s home, the stronger the air conditioner needs to be.

What Is a Ton?

To illustrate, a 1,6000 square foot house requires a 2.5 ton unit. Furthermore, homeowners need to consider the type of environment they will be installing their air conditioning unit in.

For example, basements are naturally cooler than the rest of the house. Thus, homeowners often do not include the basement when taking the size of the home into consideration for AC installation.

Is a Contractor Necessary?

Homeowners who are inexperienced when it comes to installing air conditioning units should consider hiring a contractor. Some of the AC installation processes can become pretty technical. For example, homes who have never had central air conditioning will need new breakers in the electrical panel.

In addition, the contractor will need to install wires throughout the house’s foundation, new ductwork that links to the home’s HVAC and will need to mount the unit on either some metal brackets or a concrete pad.

H2: Benefits of AC Installation

AC installation saves homeowners the hassle of researching how to manually install the units themselves. It prevents both injury and sinking too much time into the installation. The air conditioning itself has the benefit of providing clean, cool air during harsher climates.

Average Prices

Here are the average prices for AC installation. Homeowners should keep in mind these prices may fluctuate depending on the company and place. A basic two-ton model typically costs $3,000. A mid-range unit typically costs $5,000. The best air conditioning systems can cost over $10,000.
