Scott's Heating & Air Conditioning Recommends Planned Maintenance

Scott’s Heating & AC recommends regular maintenance to keep the home’s air conditioning system working at peak efficiency and help prolong its life span.

Online PR News – 04-May-2016 – Orlando, FL – Scott’s Heating & Air Conditioning, one of Central Florida’s leading AC companies, recommends that local homeowners conduct regular planned maintenance to reduce the chance of future problems and unwanted costs. Regular maintenance keeps the home’s air conditioning system working at its peak efficiency and can help prolong its life span.

“In Florida, it is especially important to have a pre-season check-up to keep your AC at peak performance,” said Scott, president and founder. “Planned maintenance can also help you avoid potential problems by catching them before they go beyond maintenance and become costly repairs. With summer just around the corner, now is time to make sure everything is in tip-top shape. “

A typical maintenance check-up should include the following:

Check thermostat settings to ensure the air conditioning system keeps you comfortable when you are home and saves energy while you are away.

Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.

Lubricate all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause friction in motors and increase the amount of electricity you use.

Check and inspect the condensate drain in your central air conditioner; a plugged drain can cause water damage in the house and affect indoor humidity levels.

Check controls of the system to ensure proper and safe operation. Check the starting cycle of the equipment to assure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.

Clean evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils. Dirty coils reduce the system's ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.

Check your central air conditioner's refrigerant level and adjust if necessary. Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.

Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels. Airflow problems can reduce your system's efficiency by up to 15 percent.
