We Offer The Best Home Services For Your AC
Living in Southwest Florida, you depend on your air conditioning to keep your home cool. Living here without AC would be very uncomfortable. For others it could be downright dangerous depending on your health condition. If your AC stops working you quickly realize there is a problem, and you need help fast. If this happens, give us a call.
Did you know there are signs alerting you to potential problems with your AC unit? Let’s look at some signs and things you can do to help your AC run as it should. Temperature Patrol is the local leader in the best home services including repairing AC units, not replacing them.
Look For The Signs
Do you review your electric bill each month? You should. FPL shows how much electric your home used along with outdoor average temperatures. When you log into their website and view your account you can even break it down further. You should compare your bill month over month and to last year. If you see a substantial increase, it’s possible your AC is not running as it should. Is it running longer, turning on more often or not cooling as it was designed? If so, you could be throwing money out the window.
The first question you need to ask is “when was the last time my ac filter was changed?” A dirty filter will reduce the amount of air the unit can pull in to cool down. The less air in, the less cool air out of the vents. Not all filters are created the same. Some filters claim to filter more allergens. While this may be true, keep in mind a finer filter will get dirty faster and need changed more often.
It’s possible some of these filters, even when new, can put unnecessary strain on your unit. If you are not sure which ones you need, contact us. We can even order filters for you to keep on hand, or even schedule to replace if you would like.
The second question is “Is there anything blocking my outdoor compressor unit?” Sometimes people plant bushes around their AC units to hide them. While this is ok in most instances, you really want to make sure that you keep the area around them cleaned so your outdoor AC unit has space to breathe. This unit needs to pull in air on the sides in order to cool. If the sides of the unit are blocked with leaves, plants or other debris, you need to get this cleaned up.
How Does Temperature Patrol Offer The Best Home Services?
Our focus from day 1 of our business was repairs and regular maintenance. Today that is still our goal, repair not replace. Some companies will try to tell you that an AC unit has a “set life” span. Some use statements like, “your unit is nearing its end and will need to be replaced soon” to scare you into a decision. Unfortunately most homeowners trust “professional” opinions.
Think about it this way. If you buy two cars today, a $100,000 car of your dreams and a $20,000 car that will take you to the same places, which will last longer. You might assume the more expensive car would, and you might be right. What if you didn’t change the oil in the $100,000 car. On the other hand you changed the oil and did recommended maintenance in the $20,000 car as the manufacture suggests. Now which car will last longer? We feel the same about home AC units.
Thats why we can say we offer the best home services for your air conditioning. Our goal is to keep your AC running as long as possible with routine maintenance and repairs.
