Summertime is just about ready to stick around for good for all Floridians. Summer fun will mean lots of time in the sun swimming, having picnics and BBQ’s, and playing around outside in the cool of the evenings. We all know how hot and humid it can get, and we rely heavily on our air conditioners to keep us cool.
Summertime is a great time of year, but we suffer a lot when our air conditioners are on the brink. Air conditioning is a necessity in our area because it’s so hot we can easily get heatstroke and the weakest among us are the most vulnerable to it.
That’s why it’s so important for us to be sure we’ve had our yearly air conditioning tune up done by a professional St. Augustine HVAC contractor before it gets much hotter. We’ve all had to use our units already this year, so having the A/C tune up done at the prime time (before we use them for the season) is already past us. But that doesn’t mean we should leave it until next year. In fact, it makes it even more important to have it done right away.
Many homeowners are coming to understand how important a St. Augustine air conditioning tune up is. When an air conditioner is tuned up, it functions at its best and doesn’t have to labor to keep the house cool.
Tune ups take care of a lot of things on these much needed pieces of complicated equipment. Parts are taken care of with cleaning and lubricating where needed and your unit is tweaked and tuned to run at its best. It’s always better to get a tune up now than to wait until the thing breaks down and the heat starts to roll into your home -that’s truly suffering.
Here are some of the things that are commonly checked when you have your tune up:
- Amperage Draw
- Refrigerant Levels
- Drip/Condensation Line
- Fan Motor
- Condenser Coils
- Electric Connections
- Refrigerant Lines
- Air Flow
- Evaporator Coils
Cleaning up your air conditioner will alone save you money on your air conditioning bill. Dirty coils can add about 20% to your energy costs! Your air conditioner can be optimized so you get the best in energy savings as you should and as you expect according to the type of model of your unit.
It also extends the life of your unit. In general, your unit should last around ten years or so according to the manufacturer, but you can have that time cut short when your air conditioner is left neglected.
