Money Saving Tips To Keep You Cool

Here are some money saving tips for your air conditioning system. If your A/C quits working, check these items before you call an ac repair company:

Breaker:

Check your breaker panel to see if your breakers are on. Ensure that no breaker tripped

Filter:

Is it clean? If not, replace immediately. If wet, call an AC company.

  1. Proper filtration
    • Removes particles, dust and debris from your home
    • Protects evaporator coil, blower wheel/motor and air distribution system
    • Allows system to work at peak efficiency
    • Most common causes of breakdowns in summer:
      • Wrong filter size
      • No filter
      • Dirty filter
  2. Improper filtration leads to:
  • High electric bill
  • Extra wear on tear on the system(shortens lifespan)
  • Forces compressor to work in overload leading to burn-out and overheating
  • Iced coils – flood/water damage to drywall and flooring
  • High humidity (sticky feeling indoors)
  • Major component break-downs

Thermostat:

If your thermostat is blank, your drain line is clogged and triggered a safety float switch to shut your unit off.

Check your settings:

Your fan should ALWAYS be set to AUTO. Due to the high humidity in Florida, it is not recommended to have it on the β€œON” position

Refrigerant lines:

Look for frost or ice on your copper lines. If you see any, shut your unit off immediately and call us at 904-379-1648.
