Preventing AC Breakdowns by Addressing Problems Early
Keeping Your AC Unit Healthy with Routine Home AC Maintenance
Florida isn’t called the Sunshine State for no reason. Our summer (and often spring, fall, and even winter) seasons can be blisteringly hot and just overall uncomfortable if you do not have a properly working air conditioning unit! The last thing you will ever want is to have your AC unit break down, thus causing an uncomfortable environment for you and your family. The best way to prevent a surprise breakdown is to conduct routine AC maintenance on your units.

We recommend having your unit inspected every year or whenever you believe that something requires a repair. You will have peace of mind knowing that our team of experts will be able to provide the best care and service for your air conditioner in Brevard County.
The Benefits of Residential/Home AC Maintenance
Prevent Surprise Breakdowns
When we check your AC unit once or twice a year, we can identify any potential problems and address those immediately. If a wire is not functioning, we can replace it. On the other hand, if a pipe is clogged, we can clear it, all done before a more significant and more costly problem occurs.
Your AC unit may be having minor problems that have easy fixes. But often, small issues can turn into significant issues that could damage your entire system if they don’t get taken care of. A professional technician is likely to identify these minor problems and can fix them quickly. AC systems are not cheap to install, so it would be wise to protect your investment.
Provide Longevity to Your AC Unit
Just as taking care of your car with maintenance and oil changes, maintenance visits will extend the life of your AC unit. With routine appointments, your AC can last its entire lifespan or even beyond!
Enhanced Air Quality
Much of the air you breathe comes directly from your AC unit. When an AC is poorly maintained, the air quality can be full of dust, dirt, and even bacteria. Our team can cleanse the AC unit of the build-up to give you improved air quality overall. When your system doesn’t receive regular cleanings or maintenance, your filters can cause issues. The more junk they filter out, the more junk stays inside of the system. If there is enough build-up, your system can malfunction. A dirty air filter can contaminate the air.
Energy Efficiency From Residential/Home AC Maintenance
When your AC unit is clean, maintained, and efficient, it does not need to work as hard throughout the day. This means you’ll save money and help the environment by using less energy to start up and cool your rooms. The sooner you fix your ineffective AC unit, the sooner you will be able to start saving money.
With a finely tuned AC unit, the air produced can be made much colder and more comfortable than ever before. You may notice that your ‘normal’ comfortable temperature feels too cold after a tune-up!
What We Check and Maintain During Residential AC Maintenance
Your AC unit has many minute parts that require special attention to maintain and keep running smoothly. By neglecting the maintenance of your unit, it will slowly lose efficiency and degrade over the years. You may start to notice that your AC runs longer or cools less efficiently than before. And in many cases, an AC unit that hasn’t had maintenance performed in several years can even break down and stop working entirely. At Fresh Air and Heat, we care about the comfort of you and your family, so we evaluate the health of every part of your AC unit when doing routine maintenance. The areas we provide routine maintenance for include:
Air Conditioner Filter
Your AC filter is one of the most critical areas of your machine and needs routine replacements to ensure the proper working order and fresh air. A dirty filter will block airflow as well as contaminate it, pushing dirt, debris, and bacteria throughout your home. Old air filters can even increase the overall energy consumption of the unit!
If you’ve noticed water or moisture in or around your AC unit, then your condensate drain may be clogged. If left clogged, this could cause a flood in your home! The condensate drain helps your AC reduce humidity, but if it can’t do its job, that humidity will escape to your business.
Air Conditioner Coils
Over time, your AC coils will collect dirt and dust during regular use. If not cleaned off with Residential AC Maintenance, this dirt will get pushed throughout your house through the vents and even block total airflow from happening. These should be routinely wiped off and cleaned to ensure healthy airflow.
Window and Door Seals
Many AC units have seals around the door or window unit to prevent the cool air from escaping and warm air from penetrating the home. Our technicians check these seals and make sure they are tight so that the air does not escape. If there are holes in these seals, your AC unit will be working harder than it needs to, leading to more frequent and sooner breakdowns.
Your AC unit uses refrigerant to cool down the air and cycle it through your house. If this is low or empty, you’ll find your AC unable to keep your home cool properly, and it will run for long periods without doing much. We measure how much you have left, check for leaks, and add more if necessary.
Check Thermostat Accuracy
When you set your home to a specific temperature, you expect it to stay at that exact temperature. If a thermostat is un-calibrated, it can make your home cooler or warmer than you want. By checking the accuracy, you can save on energy efficiency.
