It is not uncommon for homes in Sarasota, Florida to have ventilation problems, even when the home is very energy efficient. Aqua Plumbing & Air, a HVAC and plumbing company in Sarasota, is available to help you determine and solve specific ventilation problems. One thing that can really help is to have air conditioning maintenance performed on your unit every spring. Air conditioning maintenance helps the unit operate more efficiently and requires fewer major repairs. A unit that is properly maintained will circulate air through your Sarasota home much more effectively than one that is not. Also, adding a ceiling fan will help the air conditioner keep the air flowing and prevent ventilation problems.
Another service that we routinely recommend is air duct cleaning. Air ducts are the part of your air conditioner that helps to distribute cool air throughout your home. When they are full of dirt and other household debris, they can become ineffective. Instead of circulating the air, it remains trapped within the dirty air ducts. This leads to higher cooling bills, despite the fact that you are not getting the relief from the heat that you need. If you already have annual air conditioning maintenance performed, consider adding duct cleaning as well.
When a service technician from Aqua Plumbing & Air evaluates the ventilation problems in your home, he or she will provide you with a list of recommended products and services to resolve them. Other products that we may recommend include an air purifier, dehumidifier or an air cleanser. We would be happy to make specific product recommendations based on your needs.
It doesn’t always take a lot of effort on your part to improve ventilation in your home. Sometimes it is as simple as performing your own air conditioning maintenance by cleaning the unit and changing the filter.
