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.

Common Problems with the AC

Air conditioning is a must-have living in South Florida. The heat outside our doors is intense, and if problems in our air conditioning systems surface, it can be quite costly. Being aware of the possible issues that can arise in your A/C unit will help maintain your system right now and for years to come. If the following problems are persistent, call a professional right away.

  1. Low Refrigerant/Leakage – Refrigerant is a chemical that cools the air inside you’re A/C unit. If leakage occurs, the temperature of the system may fluctuate, and that is a huge no-no if you’re trying to keep cool throughout the scorching summer. Make sure the leak is located and repaired immediately.
  2. Compressor – This is the driving force for the refrigerant in your air conditioning unit. It thrusts the coolant through the coils to keep your house fresh. This is a secondary issue to low refrigerant because if the compressor overheats, it will seize and fail.
  3. Evaporator and Condenser Coils – Evaporator coils absorbs the heat in the air and send it back into the house as cold air. Condenser coils are situated just outside the compressor. The coils can become corroded over time and frozen if not maintained correctly.
  4. Capacitors – The motors that power the compressor and fans rely on the capacitors to function correctly. Jolts of electricity keep the engine working nonstop, and if the capacitor out, the A/C unit will need care very soon.
  5. Filters – Clogged or dirty filters are one of the main reasons for A/C units for dysfunction. Some filters need to be changed monthly, tri-monthly or are reusable. Accumulation of dirt will reduce the air flow to your home and prevent your system from performing to the best of its ability.

A/C Tune-Up

AC Tune-Up Routine

Changing the filter is an important component of every AC tune-up routine. If you don’t change the filter once per month or as recommended during the cooling season, your AC unit will be inefficient and more likely to fail prematurely.

To reach the filter, open up the filter compartment next to your AC unit. Before removing it, shut off power to the AC unit. Remove the filter and replace it, making sure that the arrows of the new filter are pointing in the right direction.

Refer to your air conditioner’s owner’s manual or call your local AC repair company for more information.
