Preventative Maintenance Protects SWFL
Jul 1, 2015
Your air conditioner is an investment and, in southwest Florida, it’s one of your most important investments. You wouldn’t drive your car thousands of miles without changing the oil or checking the tires; the same logic holds true for your home comfort system. Southwest Florida summers are brutal and our temperatures can creep towards the triple digits. Floridians don’t get a break from the heat, meaning our air conditioners have to work hard year-round. Give your tough AC unit some TLC with preventative maintenance.
Regular HVAC preventative maintenance extends the life of your system, identifies issues before they become larger problems, and improves your indoor air quality. Over half of all repairs are due to lack of regular maintenance. Neglected equipment increases utility costs and decreases the lifespan by more than 25%. That’s time, comfort, and money wasted.
Maintaining your air conditioner is also imperative to your indoor air quality. Indoor air quality has quickly become a talking point among environmental officials as well as the HVAC industry. The average American spends 90% of their day indoors. The Environmental Protection agency comments that the quality of indoor air can be two to five times (and even up to 100 times) more polluted than the worst outside air, making indoor air quality ranked among the top five environmental dangers.
Poor indoor air quality can aggravate health issues such as asthma, and even lead to mold and other contaminates in your home. Protect your family’s health by taking appropriate measures. Look for visible mold growth and follow your nose! Mold has a potent, musty scent that may lead you to the source. You can also look for visible mold growth in and around your home. Inspect your home, paying close attention to your bathrooms where the steam may collect and create hot, moisture if not properly ventilated; a recipe for mold. Mold can also gather around you’re air conditioning unit. Regular and preventative maintenance professionals inspect the evaporator coils, liner surfaces, drain pans and drain lines to ensure there are no leaks or issues.
