We all know that summers in Florida can reach extremely high and dangerous temperatures. What you may not think about though is the importance of having your air conditioner serviced, especially if it appears to be working fine. You may think why would you spend unnecessary money when you are feeling nice and cool and everything appears great?
Air conditioners are like cars; they need regular maintenance to run effectively and the last thing you want is for your AC to break down unexpectedly when it’s 95 degrees outside.
That’s why you need to be proactive and not wait for the problem to occur to fix it. All ACs collect dirt and dust during all months of the year, even the months when it isn’t working hard. By simply replacing dirty and clogged air filters yourself can help, but it isn’t enough.
You will also want to have your unit checked by a professional a few times a year. That’s because there are many items in the system that only a professional can find and fix.
When you hire a professional for regular AC maintenance they will do a variety of things including checking the refrigerant of the unit, test for leaks and capture any leaked refrigerant. They will also check for leaks in seals and ducts as well as check if there are any airflow restrictions.
By having this done won’t just keep you cool during the summer and the rest of the year when you need it but will also increase the longevity of your unit as well as reduce energy costs in the long run.
A properly working AC isn’t a luxury anymore, it is a necessary. Learn more about the maintenance ASAP Heating and Cooling provides consumers by clicking here and for a free estimate for your home or business in the Cape Coral or Port Charlotte areas call 239-567-9661.
