Proper maintenance is your best defense against the onslaught of high summer utility bills.

Here in southern part of the U.S. the cost of running your air conditioner is a major part of your electric bill. With a little thought and planning it is possible to significantly reduce the workload of your a/c unit thus reducing the amount of electricity you use and extending the life of your air conditioner.

  • Make sure your a/c vents, both incoming and return, are not blocked by furniture or draperies.
  • Turn off any electric light bulbs when not in use. Light bulbs generate heat that must be removed by your a/c unit.
  • Change your a/c filter monthly!
  • Cook on your outside grill when possible or use a microwave oven. Cooking on a stove or conventional oven adds heat to the inside of your home.
  • On cooler days open your windows or rely on ceiling fans to keep your home comfortable.

Air Conditioning Ft Myers | Chilled Water Applied Systems

Air Conditioning Service & Repair in Ft Myers

Community Cooling and Heating Inc.

“Chillers” or chilled water systems handle air conditioning needs in large areas

Air conditioning systems in large buildings, such as shopping malls or hospitals,  have a big job to do … they have to circulate over a million pounds of air an hour to draw out enough heat to keep such a large space cool and comfortable.  Typical air conditioning is ill suited for the job, and the operating cost would be prohibitive.  As a result chillers, or “chilled water applied system”, have become the most common and practical way to cool large areas.

Most times the general public isn’t allowed in the area’s where these systems operate.  While most of us are quite familiar with residential air conditioning equipment, I would wager that very few of us have had an opportunity to examine these large industrial air conditioners very closely.  I recently had an opportunity to take a close look at one of these systems and made a short video to share here.

The public rarely gets to see the equipment room of a commercial chilled water system

A chilled-water applied system uses chilled water to transport heat energy between the air side, chillers and the outdoors. These systems are more commonly found in large HVAC installations, given their efficiency advantages.

The components of the chiller (evaporator, compressor, an air- or water-cooled condenser, and expansion device) are often manufactured, assembled, and tested as a complete package within the factory. These packaged systems can reduce field labor, speed installation and improve reliability.

Summer’s Heavy Toll on Ft Myers Air Conditioners

Air Conditioning Service Ft Myers

Proper maintenance is the best way to keep your air conditioner in prime shape for the challenges of a Fort Myers summer!

Summer is hard on Ft Myers air conditioners! To get maximum comfort at minimum overall cost it is recommended to have your a/c unit checked out twice a year, once in the spring before your unit has to work at maximum capacity, and again at the end of the year to accurately assess the toll the long, hard summer has taken on your air conditioning equipment.

 

A dirty, clogged up air handler can cost as much as 70%  more to operate than a freshly cleaned air conditioner
A dirty, clogged up air handler can cost as much as 70% more to operate than a freshly cleaned air conditioner

The scenario is much like making preparations for a long road trip. Before the trip you probably would want to check the belts, oil, and tires as well as the overall performance of your engine before taking the trip to avoid any problems when you are depending on your vehicle the most. Conversely when you arrive back home after the trip you would certainly want to have the vehicle checked again to ensure proper operation and safety, and to prevent costly damage and repairs further down the road! The same holds true for your air conditioning equipment! This is the time of year it works the hardest and you depend on it the most. A small problem can turn into a big problem when your a/c unit is not properly serviced and working full time to maintain adequate levels of comfort in your home.

Ft Myers Air conditioning Trouble

Proper air conditioner maintenance and repair not only saves money … it eliminates a host of potential threats to your home & family!

Air Conditioning Service & Repair in Ft Myers

An air conditioner is a series of individual component parts that work together to remove warm moist air from your home or business and replace it with cool, and relatively dry air.  Generally speaking if even one of these “component parts” breaks down you will experience a problem with your AC unit’s performance … or it may stop running all together. The best way to prevent this from happening is to schedule a yearly check up of your equipment by a licensed air conditioning contractor.  Far too often home and business owners wait until their air conditioner breaks down before they call for service.  Unfortunately it is fairly common that when one of the components breaks down it starts a domino effect that can cause other parts in the system to be destroyed, damaged, or have their life expectancy to be diminished.  The earlier a potential problem is solved the better the chances of avoiding unnecessarily high repair bills!

The slideshow below shows damaged and worn component parts from air conditioners that were, at the time of discovery, working perfectly well.  The homeowners would never have guessed that they were placing themselves in the path of fire, flood, or damage to the interior of their home.  All of the pictures in the presentation were taken right here in SW Florida within the past year.

Proper a/c maintenance saves YOU big money!!!

Servicing your air conditioner is the best way to ensure optimum performance during the months to come.  Often times homeowners wait until their ac unit is broken before they will call to have their air conditioning checked, and far too often that is too late!  A properly and regularly serviced unit has far less potential for it’s most expensive components to wear out or break.  An a/c system is actually a series of separate components that work hand in hand to ensure your home or business is comfortable during the hottest days of the year.  When one of these individual components breaks down it can often trigger a “domino effect” where other parts of your system can break or wear out faster and cause your machine to work harder to provide the level of cooling you desire.
