Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips for the Spring

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Springs brings along some beautiful weather, but unfortunately, it also brings higher bills. As you start to run your air conditioner more often, it’s time to consider how you can keep your energy bills a little lower. You can do some of the most important spring AC maintenance tasks on your own, but others will require the help of a professional. Thankfully, the friendly folks at Envirotech Air Quality Services can help. Check out our tips for keeping your AC in top condition, and give us a call for professional air conditioning maintenance in West Palm Beach, FL.

  • Change Your Filter! – One of the most important things you can do for your air conditioner is to change the filter. You may think that the filter is only there to improve your air quality, but it serves other important purposes as well. An air filter’s primary purpose is to protect the AC unit itself. And if the filter is too clogged, there is not enough airflow over the coils, which can lead to frozen coils and reduced cooling capacity.
  • Make Efficient Choices – Another thing that’s of utmost importance is making efficient choices for your air conditioner. When you’re away, don’t leave the air conditioning system running at all times. Find an energy efficient temperature to program while you’re away, and only lower the temperature when you return. You can schedule the thermostat to lower the temperature thirty minutes before you arrive every day, but only if you have a programmable model.
  • Consider a New Thermostat – If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, it’s time for an upgrade. You can even purchase a smart thermostat which you can control via an app on your phone or tablet, so that you can make sure your AC operates efficiently from far away.
  • Schedule Maintenance – Be sure to schedule professional AC maintenance before the cooling season swings into full gear. Professional maintenance involves a thorough tune-up of your system which most homeowners are ill-equipped to handle, including testing for refrigerant leaks and electrical trouble and making some minor adjustments.

Call Envirotech Air Quality Services for air conditioning maintenance and more tips for your AC in West Palm Beach, FL. We can help make your unit last longer, work faster, and use less energy.

The Main Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Because the winter season in Florida is short, it’s never too early in the new year to start considering arranging for air conditioning maintenance. Right now, during a period when you won’t need to have the AC running regularly, is an excellent time to contact Envirotech Air Quality Services and arrange for one of our technicians to provide your air conditioning system with a thorough inspection and tune-up. We offer a preventive maintenance program that will take care of both heating and air conditioning maintenance in Lake Worth, FL each year so that you are ready for the weather—no matter what it is.

Air conditioning maintenance brings with it a number of important benefits. Here are three of the main benefits to consider when you are thinking of enrolling in a preventive maintenance program.

  • Extended service lifespan: Your air conditioner has a manufacturer’s estimated lifespan, usually marked on the cabinet. However, the AC won’t reach that point without help from routine maintenance. The stress of running on a regular basis will cause the air conditioner to wear down rapidly and fail years before it should. Needing to replace the entire air conditioning system is the biggest “repair” you may need to schedule, so make sure that you don’t have to retire your AC until you absolutely must by keeping up with yearly maintenance from experienced technicians.
  • Fewer repairs: Here’s a statistic that will clarify how much money you can save through regular maintenance: 85% of the repairs that an AC can typically need are fully preventable thanks to regular maintenance services. At each maintenance visit, the technician will spot places where repairs may eventually be necessary and take care of the cleanings and adjustments that will prevent them from happening. The reduction in wear and tear will also eliminate later repair worries.
  • More efficient performance: The accumulation of dust and dirt along AC components and the filter will cause the system to start to work harder than it should to supply you with cool air. For each year that an AC misses regular maintenance, it will suffer a 5% drop in its efficiency. So in only four years you could be paying 20% more on your cooling bills. On the other hand, thanks to regular maintenance, your air conditioner could stay at 95% of its original efficiency thanks to maintenance.

Call Envirotech Air Quality Services today and ask about our heating and air conditioning maintenance program in Lake Worth, FL. Along with bi-annual maintenance visits, you will also receive a 10% discount on repair parts for signing up.
