Jacksonville Air Conditioning Service – Maintenance Program
Having an air conditioning service Program from TemperaturePro of NE Florida is your best bet for avoiding costly Jacksonville air conditioning repairs and system change-outs. Whether your home or office cooling is handled by a traditional Air Conditioner or Heat Pump, complete with an indoor air handler and outside unit, or you have a separate heating system that includes a boiler or furnace, scheduling routine maintenance from TemperaturePro is the answer. North Florida enjoys mild to moderate winters but extreme summers, that sometimes start as early as March, and with the warming up of temperatures comes excessive air conditioning system usage.
Controlling the temperature in your home and maintaining a constant level of comfort year-round can produce wear and tear on any system. Excessive temperatures, coupled with high humidity means your air conditioning system could run for months on end. Any mechanical device that experiences constant usage like an AC system can’t do it alone without regular maintenance and that starts with a preventative system inspection before the cooling season begins.
TemperaturePro experts can help keep your comfort level high, cooling costs low and a system running at peak performance and efficiency.
A Typical Maintenance Visit
Air Conditioning and Heating Systems are complex machines with interrelated components that include compressors, air handlers, evaporator and condenser coils, heating elements, ductwork and thermostatic controls.
As an experienced HVAC contractor, we at TemperaturePro of NE Florida understand the purposes of each component and know how to make sure they’re in good working order and condition. Our highly trained and certified technicians can work on all makes and models and perform the necessary maintenance on your system. Our basic maintenance starts with cleaning, inspecting and lubricating (where applicable) those components most affected by the elements. In addition, we check all system controls, tighten and inspect all electrical connections.
Cleaning and Inspecting components is critical to maintaining your air conditioner in its proper working condition. Most problems that occur with heating and central air conditioning system, besides constant usage and wear, are due to dust, dirt, and debris.
Below are some of the steps we’ll take to ensure your heating and cooling systems are maintained in their proper working condition.
Internal Air Handler Inspection
Air Filter Replacement. Some HVAC system have air filters that are reusable, while many others must be replaced when they get dirty from collecting dust overtime. Up-to-date systems usually warn the user when it’s time to replace the air filter but a good rule-of-thumb is to check the filter at least once a month. All forced-air cooling and heating systems rely on air filters to remove the dust and other particulates from collecting on the evaporator coil which can clog up the system and its ability to cool effectively. At TemperaturePro the first thing we check is the air filter to determine if the user checks and changes the filter when necessary.
Evaporator Coil Cleaning. Each central air conditioning system has an evaporator coil located inside the air handler which we inspect for dust and dirt that may collect, reducing your system’s cooling capacity by up to 30%. Our technicians can clean the evaporator coil if necessary, reducing the air handler from working overtime.
Condensate Drain Cleaning. Every central air conditioning system also has the ability to remove excess humidity from the air that is circulating in the air handler. This water that collects needs to be removed and does so by either an internal drain or an internal pump removing the water to the outside. We inspect the drain, pump and drainage line as part of the routine maintenance.
Lubricate. Our technicians lubricate all moving components (where applicable) to ensure proper performance is achieved.
Calibration of the thermostat is essential in insuring the proper temperature selected is achieved. If applicable, we calibrate thermostat systems to ensure that the unit functions properly.
External Unit Inspection
Condenser Coil. The air conditioner’s large unit outside contains the condenser which is made up of many components including the condenser tubes and fins, the compressor, a fan, copper tubing and multiple valves and switches. A general inspection begins by carefully cleaning the unit from dirt and debris to ensure the components are operating in good working condition. All lines are then inspected for damage and leaks.
Ductwork System Evaluation
Duct Sealing and Insulation. One of the most integral parts of any air conditioning system is the circulation of cooled or heated air being delivered to different parts of the home or office by a series of ducts. Ductwork systems have many vulnerabilities and possible weaknesses that can reduce the efficiency of a system. Improperly installed or clogged vents, leaks in the ductwork or poor dispersal methods, all contribute to inefficiencies. Many ductwork systems installed in older homes are in unconditioned spaces like attics and crawl spaces. Proper Insulation is critical to these systems, to prevent the loss of cooled or heated air from diminishing over the length of the system. TemperaturePro of NE Florida is an expert in cleaning, detecting and repairing improperly performing ductwork systems.
Benefits of Our Air Conditioning and Heating Maintenance Programs
The main benefit of “preventive or routine maintenance” on your air conditioning and heating system is of course, prevention. Detecting a repairable problem before it does damage to a system is what preventative maintenance is all about. There is nothing more inconvenient than waiting for an air conditioning repair technician to service a system that has failed when temperatures start to climb. Besides repairing HVAC systems that can cost hundreds of dollars, not detecting certain elements in a system that need service can further damage the unit, causing system failure and in some cases, require complete system change-outs.
At TemperaturePro of NE Florida, we do our best to make repair and replacement affordable, and the best way to reduce those costs is to eliminate repairs entirely. During routine maintenance visits, we’ll clear up any emerging problems while they are still small, instead of waiting for a major repair to occur.
Preventing repairs is a major cost saver in the long term, but in the short term, you’ll benefit from preventive maintenance in other ways. Our fully licensed and trained technicians will care for your system to make sure it runs at peak performance. You’ll see the difference right away on your utility bills, and over time those savings will go a long way toward defraying the cost of seasonal maintenance.
Beyond financial savings there is an invaluable sense of comfort that comes from knowing your HVAC systems have been professionally maintained by one of the HVAC industry leaders. You’ll be able to rest easy that your air conditioner won’t shut down during a June or July heat wave and that your furnace will keep going strong throughout the winter months. While there are no guarantees, investing in preventive maintenance now will put your family in a great position to enjoy efficient, reliable comfort for many years to come.
