Monday, July 9th, 2018 at 11:00 am

man-on-couch-with-fanIf you think that you are going to enjoy a 100% reliable performance from your air conditioning system because you spent a lot of money on a great system from a top manufacturer, we’ve got some bad news for you—it is just not possible. You are going to need professional air conditioning services in Melbourne, FL from time to time—including routine maintenance and yes, repairs. Does that mean that you are doomed to an unreliable performance from your AC, though? Of course not!

We said that air conditioners are not 100% reliable, not that they are unreliable. There is a huge difference between those two statements. If you are serious about getting the most reliable performance possible from your air conditioner, though, you cannot just cross your fingers and hope for the best. You need to be proactive in order to ensure that this is the case. That is why we suggest that you keep the following tips in mind, and reach out to a member of our team with any questions that you may have. 

Leave the Installation to Trained Professionals

You can get a very, very lousy performance from even the best-rated air conditioners out there.  How? By allowing it to be poorly installed by unqualified individuals. There is no circumstance in which anyone other than trained, experienced professionals with good references and customer testimonials should be entrusted with something as important as your air conditioning installation.

Why not? Well, it is not that difficult to damage an AC during the installation process itself, which can result in an unreliable performance. You may also wind up with a system that is not appropriately sized for your home, and the only fix in such situations is to replace that system with an appropriately sized one. From duct layout to thermostat placement, every step of the process needs to be completed with care.

Change the Air Filter Regularly

How serious could it really be to leave a dirty filter in the AC? It’s not like there is a ton of dust blowing out of the vents! An astute observation, but not an entirely relevant one. Why? Because the purpose of this air filter is not to boost indoor air quality throughout your home. It is to protect your AC system and its overall performance quality.

A very dirty air filter will really restrict airflow. It can result in short cycling, wherein the system turns on and off very rapidly due to overheating. It can put a lot of strain on the system, greatly increasing the likelihood of encounter repair needs. Long story short, investing a few dollars and a few moments of time into replacing your air filter is well worth it.

Schedule Annual Maintenance

There is no way that we stress this too much. Annual air conditioning maintenance is, without exception, the best way in which to get the very best performance that your air conditioning system has to offer. Contact us to schedule it with professionals that you can count on to do a good, thorough job of it. There’s a not a lot else to say on the matter. Get the best performance that your AC can muster, and enjoy the benefits of our Priority Savings Plan.
