In Florida where summer temperatures can rise to triple digits, it is very important that your central air conditioning unit is working optimally.
To ensure that your AC works well in your Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough or Hernando County home and other surrounding cities, it is vital that you regularly maintain the air conditioner system.
One of the vital components of your AC system is the Compressor. As the compressor goes, so goes your air conditioning. As the homeowner, you need to take some actions to ensure your air conditioner compressor is in good shape.
1. Change your Air Conditioning filter regularly.
This is perhaps the simplest thing you can do to extend the life of your AC compressor in Spring Hill Florida. It is also the least costly. Yet, many homeowners neglect to do it. Often, when we go into homes to repair air conditioners, we find that the filter has not been changed for months, sometimes longer than seven or eight months. This is killing your AC compressor. Dirty, wet and clogged air conditioner filter adds unnecessary pressure to your Compressor thereby shortening its lifespan.
2. Ensure smooth air flow to your AC Compressor
Your AC Compressor needs unhindered air flow around it to keep it working smoothly. It is good if you can have your unit under a shade or tree to keep the temperature around it cool but ensure the trees or shade is not impeding the flow of air to the unit. Ensure also that that vents around the unit is not clogged by cut grass or other debris. This will stop the flow of air around the AC Compressor and raise the temperature around it in the process.
