Be Cool – Take Care of Your Air Conditioning Unit!

In today’s world, both homeowners and businesses have come to rely on air conditioning. Not only does air conditioning keep us more comfortable during the warmer months of the year, there are many other benefits as well.

Let’s take a look at some of those benefits:

  1. When an air conditioner has been properly installed (and this is vitally important), it can help to improve and renew air quality.
  2. Heat and humidity are extreme conditions that can actually have an adverse impact on our overall physical and intellectual activity. You have probably experienced that when you’re overly heated, even a simple task can be burdensome. If your environment is at a comfortable temperature with heat and humidity reduced, you will find that it’s easier to perform and complete those tasks that you need to complete.
  3. When you are too hot, you may experience excessive sweating, which could lead to dehydration. The lower temperatures provided by proper air conditioning can lessen the possibility of dehydration and the complications that this condition brings.

If you are looking to install or replace an air conditioning unit in your home or office, make sure that you contact a company that has proven results in proper installation.

If the new air conditioner is installed wrong, you could encounter several problems that you don’t want to deal with. First of all, did you know that an improperly installed air conditioning unit could actually cause your utility bill to go up by 30%? Not only that, you could find yourself having to pay a lot of money for repairs, or even face a failure of the entire air conditioning system.

Your air conditioner installer must be able to calculate the right sized unit for the amount of space that you are cooling. This is one of the first, and most important, steps of your overall installation and it will ensure that you get the greatest performance possible from your unit. The installer will have to perform a cooling and heating load calculation and from there, the correct size unit is determined.

Finally, it’s important to properly maintain your system. The easiest way to do this is to change your filters regularly. A good rule of thumb is to change them about every 90 days for a typical suburban home without pets. At the start of each cooling season, brush obstruction and dirt from the coils and drains. And if the air conditioner doesn’t seem to be producing as much cold air as it normally does, call a repair service because this could indicate refrigerant charge or air flow problems.

With proper installation and maintenance, your air conditioning unit should keep you and your family comfortable for years.
