Top 3 AC Preventative Services

Just like a car or any other machine that is constantly working to improve our lives, an air conditioning unit requires service and maintenance to continue to do its job. This article will provide the three most essential maintenance methods for quality breathing air. For extra help in maintaining these three simple AC service methods, or if other problems arise, consider giving Complete Environmental Solutions a call. Complete Environmental Solutions is an air conditioning service, maintenance, installation, and repair specialist in Jupiter, FL.

Replace the Air Filter

The main mechanism in the process of recycling air into a clean product is the air filter. This mesh must be placed and replaced at the air duct every 3-6 months depending on the environment. Custom made air filters can fit hard-to-reach locations. CES can cut filters 6” x 6” up to 24” x 24” and further cut by the ¼, ½, or ¾ inch to fit any shape. Make sure to place the new filter in the same direction as the old filter, so that the air flow goes through the right end of the filter.

Available from CES are Four Inch Super Filters which are designed for better quality air. These work by increasing the area that the filter covers inside the airway. These super filters seal off the area completely, ensuring that no larger air particles make it through.

Cleaning the Rooms

The air filter will get most of the particles before they enter the room, but dirt accumulates from many sources. Regularly cleaning the rooms of any house or office helps to keep the air clean as well as reduce the work the air conditioning needs to do dramatically.

To properly clean the room, it is important to start from the top and clean downwards. The highest point of cleaning is usually the ceiling fan. Most people do not clean here because of the difficulty and negligence, but a dusty fan can be one of the highest contributors to unclean air. The top of fan blades collects plenty of dust and can help circulate that dust around while it spins. Cleaning the fan blades will spread a lot of dust at first, but this allows follow up with vacuum cleaning. Most of the dust will get stuck in carpets as its final destination, so vacuuming is a good way to get rid of most of the dust, especially as the final step in any room-cleaning.

Cleaning the Evaporator Coil

The air that comes out of the air conditioner usually is nice and cool, but the air that goes in is humid and warm. This difference is made by the evaporator coil, which turns all the heat from the air into condensation which then drips down into a pan. This pan does not gain enough flow to flush completely through the drain line. This allows the dampness to gather and create sludge which can eventually build and clog the line. If this happens, the pan can get too full and the air conditioning may have an emergency shut off to prevent flooding of the system. Depending on how the access to the port is given, flushing it with hot water or using a vacuum can remove this clog.

By making these three air conditioning services regularly, any environment can be improved. If any other issues occur, call 561-747-2862 or visit www.completeenvirosolutions.com to start breathing better now!

Why You Need Regular Air Conditioning Maintenance

 

Keeping your A/C running during the summer is important for maintaining a comfortable climate in your home. Don’t wait too long to have your A/C unit checked before the summer. A hot summer day without a working A/C will make you feel miserable in your home. Unexpected AC repairs can end up costing an exorbitant amount of money. Having your air conditioning maintenance performed will save you money on your energy bill and help avoid unexpected repairs. Here are some of the reasons why regularly scheduled air conditioning maintenance is needed for your Jupiter home.

Air Conditioner Filters

One of the most important maintenance checks is replacing or cleaning A/C filters. Clogged and dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a cooling system’s efficiency. When air bypasses the filter, it may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. This effectively obstructs normal airflow. Replacing a dirty or clogged filter with a clean replacement can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

Air Conditioner Coils

An air conditioner’s evaporator condenser coil collects dirt over months and years of service. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from soiling too quickly. An evaporator coil will still collect dirt over time. This dirt reduces air flow and insulates the coil, effectively reducing its ability to absorb heat. Your evaporator coil should be checked every year as a part of regular air conditioning maintenance.

Energy Efficiency

Performing routine AC maintenance for your Jupiter home can help your cooling system work efficiently. When air conditioning units are working efficiently, less energy is used. Using less energy saves you money on utility bills. If you’ve been noticing an increase in your utility bills without any change in your cooling habits, then you may want to have your air conditioning unit checked out.

Cooling Improvements

Having an AC unit cool on demand is important for Jupiter residents. When AC units start up slowly or spew out lukewarm air, they are in need of a maintenance check. AC units that make odd sounds during operation are also in need of a maintenance check. Professionals recommend that homeowners have their air conditioning unit serviced and inspected at the end of each summer season so that it’s ready for the next hot day.

Longevity

Sometimes air conditioning units have to be replaced if it is broken or underperforming. Replacing a broken air conditioner is usually a costly and an unpleasant experience. Maintaining your air conditioning unit will help circumvent the purchase of a replacement unit. Many AC units can last for as long as 20 years with the right care and proper maintenance.

Air conditioning maintenance in Jupiter doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg. Replacing the filter on a regular basis and making sure that vents remain free of debris, are two things homeowners can do to extend the life of the AC unit.
