Naples Air Conditioning: How To Get The Best Out Of Your Air Conditioning Unit.
We all know that Florida is famous for many things like palm trees, beaches, Walt Disney World and of course the sunshine! With that sunshine comes an enormous amount of heat, so having a reliable air conditioning unit is key… and knowing how to get the most out of your air conditioning unit is even better!
Here are some helpful tips to help our Florida homeowners get the BEST out of their a/c:
First and foremost there are preventative maintenance strategies that can be done. The most effective is a maintenance plan which we highly recommend to all our BHS customers. This is the BEST way to prolong the life of your ac unit. You can also replace your air conditioner filters once a month or upgrade to a high-grade filtration system which can cover you for 6 months up to a year.
The next way to get the most out of your ac unit is to install a compressor saver. This does just what the name entails, it extends the life of the compressor, which happens to be the single most important component of your ac system.
Another way to make sure you will get the most out of your unit is to focus on the condenser.
- Make sure the condenser outside is well ventilated, that there are no obstructions above it and that it is not in the way of any sprinkler systems.
- Your condenser outside should be sprayed regularly.
- Point the hose downward or in the direction of the fins in order to prevent and minimize clogging which can obstruct the heat transfer that occurs.
Something we don’t often think about is our air quality. Many new building codes have been implemented causing homes and buildings to be even more airtight than ever before. This requires homeowners to be more conscious of their indoor air quality then they have been. There is a wide range of products that improve Indoor Air Quality and also help extend the life of your system by keeping it as close to new as possible. These include ultraviolet lights, phototonic systems, dehumidifiers, etc.
Finally, if you are planning on purchasing a new ac system you need to be sure you replace your existing ductwork to ensure proper sizing and pressure. This is directly correlated to the system’s performance and lifespan. Anyone can install a new unit but to guarantee your unit is operating at its peak performance and cooling your home efficiently your ductwork must be correct.
So as you can see there are plenty of ways to help you get the most and best out of your AC unit while staying cool and comfortable in your sunny Florida Home! If you have further questions or need help with a maintenance plan please contact us directly.
