It’s time to turn up the heat on summer preparations here in the Hamptons. Have questions about getting your home ready for those hot days and nights? Our friends at Flanders Heating & Air Conditioning have the answers.
The Question: I hear that it is important to have my air conditioning system cleaned before I start using it for the season. Why is that?
The Answer from Flanders Heating & Air Conditioning: It is very important to have your air conditioning system cleaned before the cooling season starts. By having your air conditioning system cleaned for the season it keeps your system running to its full capacity. By having a dirty air conditioning system it will force your system to work harder and not run as well as it should and the life of your system decreases. It is like having a tune up done on your car. You need a tune up done on your car to keep it running at full performance. If you car did not get that tune up it would not perform as well. Would you want your car to work harder and not drive as well?
It is also important to have your air conditioning system cleaned to prevent your system from breaking down during the season. What could be more annoying than having no air conditioning during a day that is 90 degrees outside and humid? By having a trained technician clean your system he will be able to detect if there are any problems that are occurring or could occur in the near future. It is a way to keep your mind at ease during those hot days.
Should filter changes also be done with the cleaning?
Filter changes should be included with the cleaning of your system. The price of the cleaning might vary in price depending on the size and efficiency of the filter but it should be included. It is very important to have clean filters for the season. Not only will having a clean filter keep your system running at its full capacity but it will also keep the air in your home cleaner. Cleaner air means fewer allergies. Fewer allergies mean a more comfortable home.
