Air Conditioning Maintenance

We turned on the heat! Yes, we actually gave in a few days ago and turned the heat on in Sarasota. 

Now is the time to get your AC unit service as we go from 59F a couple of nights ago to an expected 80 degrees at the weekend, it's a good idea to get you system serviced by a professional. 

To see who we use check out my prefered partners page. 

l Have a professional check your system periodically.

l Oil the blower motor and fan on both the condensing and the evaporation units annually.

l Keep the condensing-unit pan free of bugs, leaves and dirt.

l Check the tension on the condensing and evaporation unit blower fan belts each spring.

l Inspect the blower ducts and joints for leaks and insulation slippage annually.

l Clean or replace air filters frequently.

l Keep the blower motor fan blade free of mold and mildew.

l Set your a/c fan speed on high except when it’s humid.

l Use a whole-house attic fan.

l Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer.

l Don't place electronic equipment near your air-conditioning thermostat.
