Living somewhere as hot and humid as we do, it’s pretty much a no-brainer that you need air conditioning. But what you might not understand the importance of is only hiring a trained and experienced professional to install, repair, and/or maintain that air conditioner. Without these professional services, you could have an inefficiently operating air conditioner, one that has frequent repair needs, or a cooling system that breaks down on you suddenly right when you need it the most.
When you do need service for your air conditioner in West Palm Beach, FL, you needn’t look any further than our team! In the meantime, learn how air conditioning serves your well-being and the well-being of your family.
How a Professionally Serviced AC Helps Your Well-Being
From preventing dehydration or heatstroke to improving sleep and energy, there are a number of ways that good air conditioning benefits your household’s well-being.
Improved Sleep and Energy
According to the National Library of Medicine (NLM), it’s recommended to set your thermostat around 68°F for a good night’s sleep. Of course, this isn’t the most efficient setting for our area, so we encourage our customers to go with a setting they feel most comfortable with, but usually a little cooler than you have it set during the day. So if you set your thermostat at 78°F during the day, consider setting it around 75°F when you are sleeping.
Not only will this help you fall asleep and stay asleep, but it also helps regulate your mood and appetite. This means great cooling can actually contribute to better energy and weight loss too!
Lower Risk of Mold Groth
First thing’s first–your air conditioner is not a dehumidifier. However, it does have dehumidification properties. This means that it can remove some of the humidity from your home. This is something absolutely vital to Floridian homeowners!
By removing some of the humidity, your AC lowers your risk for mold growth, which can make even the healthiest person in your household sick.
Reduced Risk of Heatstroke
Keeping cool in our summer weather is important, especially for young children and for the elderly. Keeping your air conditioner in great shape, then, is vital to your well-being.
This means that you should have maintenance done at least once a year–twice a year if you have a heat pump system.
Maintenance allows our professionals to comprehensively inspect, clean, and adjust the components that need it, all of which helps your air conditioner operate as efficiently and effectively as possible, for as long as possible.
The Power of Professional Maintenance
Routine professional maintenance helps reduce repair needs by as much as 85%. This is because if we catch problems early, they can get repaired fast before they have a chance to grow into much bigger problems.
This service also helps prolong the lifespan of your system, and retain up to 95% of its original efficiency rating, so that you can count on reliable, healthful cooling for the years to come.
