An inefficient air conditioning system is bad news for anyone living in Florida. Your air conditioner provides comfortable temperatures and helps to promote better indoor air quality. Continuing to operate an inefficient air conditioner could end up costing you a great deal of money. If you take good care of your air conditioner, it will be a while before purchasing a new system becomes necessary. Regular air conditioner maintenance is one of the best ways to increase comfort, improve the performance of your system, and extend its life.
The thermostat sensor, located behind your system’s control panel measures the temperature of the air over the evaporator coil. Over time, these sensors can get knocked out of place or simply stop functioning properly. As a result, your air conditioner will fail to provide consistent or effective cooling. Your HVAC technician will be able to locate and correct such problems.
Your air conditioning system uses a chemical solution known as a refrigerant or coolant to keep your home cool. Your system can become low on refrigerant if it is old, or if it has a leak. Refrigerant leaks make it more difficult for your system to do its job. Special certification is required for handling refrigerants. So ensure that your HVAC technician is properly certified.
A pressure buildup in the refrigerant within your system puts a lot of strain on your outdoor compressor unit and can cause it to fail. By contacting a your HVAC contractor, you can boost your system’s efficiency and cut energy costs.
Your condensate drain can develop clogs, which prevent water or condensation from draining away as it should. Water that settles can lead to mold growth. In addition, clogs can cause water overflow which can lead to damage to your home.
