We have serviced the residential and commercial customers in Sarasota, Florida since 1974. Your air conditioner has electrical and mechanical components that require regular maintenance.
Indoor Air Quality
Changing the air conditioning system’s air filter every month improves your home’s indoor air quality. Clogged filters are ineffective against microorganisms, pet dander, and dust mites that enter and circulate throughout your home. Clean filters decrease discomfort for those suffering with upper respiratory conditions.
Ultimately, changing dirty filters on a regular basis prolongs the life of your heating and cooling equipment. When accumulated dust mixes with moisture, it weakens furniture and drapery fabrics and is difficult to remove from surfaces. In addition to that, you have to dust more often. Keep the ductwork free of harmful bacteria to guard against airborne viruses by replacing filters once a month. If you are unsure about what size to purchase, call us and speak with one of our experts.
Often neglected, the ductwork distributes cool air from your air conditioning system into your home. Unfortunately, if bacteria, microorganisms, dirt, and mold spores are in the ductwork, they contaminate the air you breathe. Have the ductwork cleaned yearly to minimize health issues and improve indoor air quality.
Uncontrolled moisture levels are uncomfortable, and too much humidity in the summer makes you feel hotter and the system works harder to maintain a cool home. On the contrary, low humidity during the winter makes the air seem colder. Installing a dehumidifier and a humidifier will give you year-round comfort.
Condenser and Evaporator Units
The outside condenser and indoor evaporator units are the workhorses of an air conditioning system. Make sure you purchase a preventative maintenance agreement to avoid expensive repair bills and unexpected breakdowns.
It is important to cut back or remove shrubbery and tree branches close to the condenser. Always remove debris, dirt, and leaves around the unit so the condensate pipe does not clog. A clogged condenser pipe or leaves in the unit could shut down the system. Inspect the unit for signs of damage or fallen debris before, during, and after each season.
The evaporator is the indoor unit that traps outside bacteria and particulates before the air enters your living space. The evaporator is where air passes over its coils, which removes the remaining condensation. Clogged air filters and low refrigerant levels circulate contaminated and hot air through the ductwork. Be sure to inspect this unit every season for warn parts and damage.
Whether it is the condenser or evaporator, standing water or burning odors require service immediately. Before calling, turn off the system from the power source. Only a qualified technician should diagnose and repair HVAC equipment.
