Air Conditioner Maintenance
By DevSupport on May 19, 2014
Summer temperatures have come to Banderas Bay and you want
to be sure the a/c units in your home are running perfectly. An air conditioner is a very tough piece of
equipment but like a car, air conditioners need regular tune-ups to run
Without regular maintenance an air conditioner loses about
5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation but you can recover
most of that lost efficiency through regular maintenance. Studies show that
with regular tune-ups a unit will maintain up to 95% of its original
efficiency. This means that the cost of an annual servicing is recovered very
quickly in savings on your monthly electric bill and reduced repair costs. A
properly serviced air conditioner will also do a better job of dehumidifying
your home, helping to keep mold out of your home.
A technician should clean the condensing unit coils, oil the
fan motors, check that belts are well adjusted, and check the system operating
pressures and temperatures against the manufacturerâ€™s specifications. A quick flip through the Puerto Vallarta
Yellow Pages will find you many listings for air conditioner repairs or check
with your building or property manager for recommendations.
