Indoor Air Quality
AC Maintenance Service in Orlando, FL
Nothing is built the way it used to be. Cars, household appliances, and even homes are often not built to last, but rather replaced as soon as the warranty expires. If you think you have to accept this and keep buying new things, think again. Maintenance is the key to making equipment last. Air conditioners are no exception.
Downtown Air and Heat can ensure your air conditioner keeps you cool for many years. Air conditioners are expensive, and we want to make sure you get your money’s worth. Contact qualified HVAC experts today!
Why You Need AC Maintenance
You may think that if your air conditioner is not broken, there’s no reason to pay someone to work on it. However, maintenance can resolve several common problems that affect air conditioners.
If you do need to service your AC, one of our trained technicians can come to your house and take care of your air conditioning needs. However, you should not wait for something to go wrong to call us. Yearly inspections can extend the lifespan of your unit and ensure the following concerns are addressed.
Orlando is hot in the summertime. Air conditioning is a necessity for most people to be comfortable and healthy. If you have air conditioning maintenance once a year, you won’t have to worry about your air conditioning fritzing out.
You need high–rated air filters in your HVAC system to make sure that dangerous particles in the air are captured and kept out of your house. However, an air conditioner’s frame must be sturdy so that it can hold the filter in place. If the filter frame does not hold the filter in place properly, it can’t do its job.
Filter quality is measured by a rating system called Minimum Efficiency Reporting Values (MERV). The higher the MERV rating, the smaller the particles it can capture.
Some HVAC systems have filters you can change yourself. Others require a trained technician to change them. When we come out for your annual maintenance, we can recommend the best filter to work with your air conditioning system.
A quality filter is essential to keeping condenser and evaporator coils in working order. The evaporator coil removes moisture and heat from indoor air cooling. The condenser coil uses the heat and sends it outside.
When you do not replace filters regularly, the air will not flow through the condenser and evaporator coils properly. This can reduce indoor air quality. If air is unable to flow properly, the evaporator can freeze.
When the evaporator coil freezes, it trips the safety wires and your air conditioner will shut off. Annual maintenance will include cleaning the coils or replacing them if necessary. Dirty coils have even been known to cause fires.
Air Conditioner Maintenance is Cost–Effective
Air conditioner repairs can be expensive. If your AC breaks down in the middle of summer, you may end up waiting a long time for a repair. Just about every home in Orlando has an air conditioner, and air conditioner repair people are in demand.
When you do get a repair person out to your house, the repairs can be costly. There are several different kinds of air conditioning systems out there, and each of them has unique problems that may need attention.
Downtown Air and Heat offers a great service plan to people in Central Florida that will save you money in the long run. Your comfort is our top priority, and we always guarantee our work.
What Air Conditioner Maintenance Entails
In addition to checking your filter and condenser coils, our maintenance specialist can give your HVAC system a complete exam. We make sure your thermostat is regulating temperature correctly. When you have a broken thermostat, you can’t set the temperature where you want it.
We also check that your furnace is working properly. The furnace heats air circulated by the HVAC system. If it fails, the whole system will shut down.
We look to ensure there are no gas or refrigeration leaks in the unit. We check that the drip pan is not overflowing and that the safety switch works. If they are not working, it can cause major water damage to your floors and walls.
