How to Maintain Your Air Conditioning Service

Air Conditioning Service | People who are often busy find itunimportant to maintain their air conditioning service which is why common problems tend to occur in their systems when it stops working or stops cooling. Maintenance of an air conditioning service is extremely important in order to increase its lifespan and durability. Here are some simple tips that can be followed in order to maintain an air conditioning service.

Maintenance Tips

  • Change the Filter: The filter of an air conditioner regularly needs to be changed at least once a month. It should be cleaned from all the dust and dirt that gathers up inside the filters and clogs the air from coming out.
  • Coils Need To Be Cleaned Regularly: Coils are found on the outside part of an air conditioner and need to be regularly cleaned due to the dust pollution. When the coils are filled up with dirt and debris, the air conditioning service stops working properly.
  • Plants Need To Be Trimmed Near The Air Conditioning Unit: The outside part of an air conditioning unit is usually outside of the house and many people don’t like how it looks, and so they tend to hide it by planting bushes or plants around the air conditioning unit to hide it. But due to these plants, the dirt and dead leaves are then sucked into the coils and fins clogging up all the airways. Plants should be trimmed and cleaned around the outside portion of the unit.

  • Adjust The Thermostat Of The AC When Nobody Is In The House: People usually leave their houses for the day to go to work and leave their air conditioning services on, but by reducing the thermostat this will also consume less electricity resulting in lower utility bills and it won’t use up too much of the systems energy, or better yet, turning off the air conditioning unit when nobody is at home is also an option for a longer life. The thermostat can also be adjusted to turn on at a specific time before a person reaches home so the house stays cool.

These were just some simple maintenance tips that every air conditioning service can use. If you require any AC repairs or need your air conditioner serviced, you can contact us at Elite Electric and Air, (772) 905-3527.

AC Repair | How To Maintain Your HVAC

AC Repair | How To Maintain Your HVAC

ac repairAC Repair | HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) units require servicing and maintenance at periodic intervals so as to prevent malfunctions. However, should the units be serviced and maintained properly they will continue to give optimal performance for a long time indeed.

  • Insulation

One of the most overlooked parts of a regular maintenance check list is the ducting and insulation of refrigerant gas as well as the ducts that carry hot or cold air as the case may be. It is also necessary to check up on the electrical wires of your equipment. Any frayed wire may lead to a short circuit or worse, even accidental electrocution.

  • Replace All Air Filter Every 12 Weeks

Filters, by their very nature are designed to choke. This is because they prevent dust and sand particles from entering your climate controlled environment. This is why all filters should be changed every three months. Moreover, should you be living in an area prone to dust and sandstorms, then it would be a good idea to change them every moth or so.

AC Service | Air Conditioning Service In A Few Short Steps

AC Service | Air Conditioning Service In A Few Short Steps

ac serviceAC Service | Like almost all electrical appliances and mechanical equipment, air conditioners require both servicing as well as maintenance every few months. This will help ensure that your AC always remains fully functional and gives excellent cooling whenever it is switched on. However, the most basic maintenance step is to simply switch your AC on every few days, even for a few minutes. This will help ensure that the refrigerant gas remains circulating in the system and as such does not stagnate, which is one of the primary causes of gas leakage and eventual loss of cooling.

AC servicing is not a difficult job provided skilled electricians are called in to take care of the job.  A team of experienced technicians would be able to service your AC within an hour or two and leave your room as it was before they started their work.

Basically AC servicing involves a series of steps which include:

  • Sprucing Up The Fan

All ACs have fans installed inside them. For the unit to work well the fan must be clean and not covered in dust and other pollutants. Not only will the ingress of foreign matter make the fan heavy and thus prone to moving slower, but if enough sand and grime gets inside the AC, it might choke it up leading to the overall failure of the unit.

AC Company | Installing an AC Unit

AC Company | Installing an AC Unit

AC companyAC Company | AC Installation in your home is definitely ‘not’ a DIY (Do it yourself) project unless you are a duly qualified technician. 

Once you have made up your mind to have an AC installed in your premises, it is time to call in the professionals.  Trained and experienced experts would be best able to help and guide you with regards to the location of the indoor as well as outdoor units, ducting issues and placement in such a manner as to optimize cooling.

  • Installation of indoor unit

The location selected has to be as far away from direct sunlight and any other heat sources as possible.  Otherwise the air would be warmed as soon as it leaves the vents. Once the location has been selected, the mounting plate will be installed.

A hole would be bored close to the mounting plate. That hole would allow the piping to reach the outdoor unit.  Once that is done, the indoor unit would be mounted on the inner wall.  All pipes (including drainage pipes) should be securely connected and insulated

AC Repair | The Importance of Duct Cleaning and Maintenance

AC Repair | The Importance of Duct Cleaning and Maintenance

AC Repair | In the middle of summer when the temperature slowly but steadily starts rising in your home, in spite of the AC going full blast (quite literally) then there is a more than even chance of a leakage.

However, it is not necessary that the leakage has to be a gas leak in the AC itself. Rather it could be a ‘ducting’ issue.

Ducting is a very important part of virtually every temperature controlled environment that is equipped with an AC.   Unfortunately, it seldom gets the attention it so richly deserves. If there are any errors in alignment or placement, then the ducts might be prone to leakages and as such defeat the whole purpose of AC installation in your home.  Such an eventuality might also lead to higher electricity bills without a corresponding increase in cooling effect.  Moreover, leakages in the ducting system would also allow the egress of cold air in areas where it is unwanted.

AC Service | Refilling Refrigerant Gas

AC Service | Refilling Refrigerant Gas

AC Service | It’s a hot summer day and after a very long time you switch on the AC, set the thermostat to the desired level and wait for it to cool the room. But as the seconds turn to minutes, the temperature of your room still remains the same while the AC is working fine (and also ensuring that your electricity meter is running at full speed). You double check everything. Reset the temperature to the desired degree, check your remote just in case you have accidentally switched off the fan while switching on the AC. And everything is fine. The remote has fresh batteries. The AC is also working. Only issue is, the room is simply not getting any cooler!

AC Company Case Files: AC that Won’t Turn Off

AC Company Case Files: AC that Won’t Turn Off

AC Company | There are many reasons why AC owners need air conditioning service. One of them is because their AC doesn’t turn off after putting both the room and thermostat temperature on the same level. There could be two reasons behind this. One of them is that the thermostat is at fault while the other reason being that the electrical system is present outside the condensing unit. Shutting off the unit by using the AC’s circuit breaker is one way of turning it off but it is not a permanent solution. You might require the help of an AC repair expert or you can check to see if the following solutions work for you:

AC Repair Extraordinaire: Leaking AC Unit

AC Repair Extraordinaire: Leaking AC Unit

AC Repair | While one of the times we look for AC services is during AC installation, other occasions might require expert help. If your AC is leaking, then it is in dire need of AC service. Here are some common ways by which AC units can leak:

  1. If one of the water carrying tubes is leaking, then you will see a pool at the base of the air handler. One reason why that might be happening is a blockage in the flowing water’s path. Another reason could be a faulty condensate pump.
  2. If you want to test whether the pump is at fault, you can do so by pouring water into its collector. If the pump does not start after the water is poured into it, then it is the problem.
  3. A broken pump will need to be replaced:
  4. A pump that is stuck will need to be disconnected and cleaned out thoroughly. In order to kill algae, you can dilute one part bleach with 16 parts water and pump it out through the tube.
  5. Another thing that might be preventing the pump from running is a stuck check valve. Such a pump will run but won’t empty the trough. To fix it, you will have to unscrew the valve and dislodge the ball .
    1. A  large obstruction in the condensation drain tube might be the reason for the blockage. Try cleaning it by blowing the algae out. If that does not work, you might have to remove the pipe and replace it.
