The unrelenting heat of summer is the worst time to deal with a malfunctioning air conditioning system. Despite keeping up with regular maintenance, slowdowns and other problems can still occur. When your home or office is hot and unbearably muggy, all you truly want is your a/c to work, efficiency and all other issues are the last things on your mind. Here are three common a/c problems and their likely causes.
Florida is currently in the midst of hurricane season, and it is thankfully quiet so far this year. Knowing how to prepare your air conditioning unit for a potential hurricane is good knowledge to have, especially before a disaster is on the horizon. It can be a little hectic and difficult to find the information you need last minute and buying replacement items such as a/c covers during a hurricane scare can be even harder.
Our great state of Florida may have a lot of benefits, but a short and mild allergy season is not one of them. We rank at the top on several lists for having a miserable and enduring effect on allergy sufferers. While many residents simply do their best to avoid triggers and take medication, you shouldn't overlook the help your HVAC unit can provide. Innovation and advances in filtering have made it so your hvac can help you breathe easy as well as stay cool.
Not all air conditioning unit failures happen suddenly without warning. Often there are signs and symptoms of an upcoming failure before it happens. Knowing exactly what to look for is half the battle, the other half is not ignoring the signs and scheduling service.
Homeowners and business owners alike expect their air conditioning systems to function flawlessly when needed, but what do you do when a problem arises? While it is certainly an option for those who prefer a more hands-off approach, you don't need to immediately call maintenance at the start of every little issue. Occasionally a little investigation and a quick fix you can do yourself is all it takes.
Florida gets a jump start on the warm weather that many states can only expect during the summer months. This means ensuring your air conditioning unit is working to the best of its ability should be done long before the dog days of summer hit. Depending on your personal comfort preference, you may already be running your A/C with recent temperatures in the 80s.
An HVAC system is a big expense that fortunately also has a long lifespan. However, just like a vehicle purchase, it will need regular maintenance and tune-ups during this lifespan in order for it to continue to function. You wouldn't expect your car to work effectively for years without an oil change, and you can use the same logic in the care of your A/C. Keeping your system in tip-top shape with Spring and Fall maintenance appointments will help keep it functioning at its best when you need it most. Here are a few more advantages of regular HVAC maintenance.
With the arrival of spring in our great state of Florida, most heating needs are complete, at least until next winter. While springtime may not bring the insufferably high heat of summer, it does ramp up the humidity along with the return of higher temperatures. Humidity is not only a threat to the comfort level in your home, but it is also taxing on HVAC systems designed to remove it if not fit for the job.
The necessity of cleaning your home's air ducts has always been a controversial topic in the subject of maintaining your air conditioning system. Some prefer an out of sight, out of mind approach while others are more vigilant, opting for the suggested every three to five years mark.
Spring is right around the corner and with it comes the time for spring maintenance for your HVAC system. While your heat pump may have carried the workload for the chilly winter days, warmer spring temperatures offer some much-needed downtime as far as air conditioning is concerned. Most homeowners know to take full advantage of performing maintenance during the upcoming spring season, well before the rigors of summer's heat hit.
