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.

Hurricane Season | 7 Tips To Protect Your Air Conditioner

Community Cooling and Heating Inc.

Fort Myers, Fl.

239-267-2117

Is your air conditioner “Hurricane Ready?”

Hurricane season is once again upon us.  In the midst of making preparations for an approaching storm there is much to be done and many bases to cover.  Prescription medicines, water, food, pets, and family members are all at the top of the list as they should be, but, some thought should be given to your family’s air conditioning equipment as well. By recognizing the dangers and following a few simple rules one can greatly reduce the risk of damage to costly equipment and avoid unnecessary repairs.
Air Conditioning Service And Repair In Ft Myers Florida

Community Cooling recommends a/c maintenance service as summer approaches … a good time to have a look at your a/c’s hurricane readiness as well!

1. Make certain before the storm hits that your a/c unit is secured to the base it sits on. Your unit should

be strapped or bolted down to prevent it being blown around and damaged.

2. If already secured, make sure the bolts or straps are tight and rust free.

3. Make certain the area around your air conditioner is free of any and all objects that could

become airborne and damage your equipment.

4. Turn you A/C off at the thermostat AND at the breaker box. Should major damage occur to your

unit a live electrical circuit could cause injury or fire!

5. In the event of flooding be certain your air conditioner is COMPLETELY dry before reconnecting

power and starting your equipment! After flooding or even temporary immersion in water it is

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to have your unit thoroughly checked by a

licensed air conditioning contractor to ascertain the equipment is safe to operate!

6. After the storm thoroughly inspect your a/c unit for any signs of damage from flying debris.

7. If your unit has come in contact with salt water it needs to be thoroughly cleaned by an experienced

a/c technician to prevent corrosion from damaging or destroying your equipment.

PROPER PLANNING & PLACEMENT OF PERSONNEL PREVENTS PARTICULARLY POOR PERFORMANCE!

Fort Myers air conditioner trouble? Call Community Cooling.

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!

 

ac coils stolen in south fort myers

A far too common problem in SW Florida over the past several years … a stolen coil from an a/c unit.  It appears stolen or damaged air conditioners are on the downswing however … recent changes in Florida law make it far more difficult for criminals to get rid of the materials they take from the units.

An ad we ran on the television last year about a/c service calls.

Air Conditioning Ft Myers | Chilled Water Applied Systems

Air Conditioning Service & Repair in Ft Myers

Community Cooling and Heating Inc.

239-267-2117

“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.
