AC Maintenance in Bradenton
Seasonal Tune-Ups for All Equipment Brands
Our beautiful climate is what draws so many people to the Sunshine State. However, Floridians know that air conditioning is essential for home comfort. The best thing you can do to keep your air conditioner operating efficiently is to schedule regular professional maintenance.
Florida Southern Air offers AC maintenance in Bradenton, Sarasota, Palmetto, South Tampa, and surrounding areas for all brands and models that is convenient and extends the life of your system.
Why AC Maintenance Matters
All mechanical equipment works better when it is cared for properly. This applies to everything from your car to your air conditioning system. Neglecting maintenance will result in a gradual decrease in performance and energy efficiency. Eventually, the added wear and tear can cause more frequent breakdowns and higher home cooling costs.
Air conditioning maintenance allows you to enjoy:
- A more energy-efficient AC system
- Dependable operation
- Lower utility costs
- Fewer repairs
- Longer equipment life
- Improved indoor air quality
Although you can help maintain your system by changing the air filters regularly, maintenance should be performed by a professional with the right equipment and experience. Our technicians know how to properly inspect your AC system to ensure everything is working as it should and make adjustments that will help improve efficiency.
Comprehensive Inspections & Maintenance
At Florida Southern Air, we offer top-notch AC maintenance in the Bradenton area from experienced and knowledgeable technicians. We provide detailed inspections, cleaning, and tune-up services to ensure that your air conditioner is ready for spring and summer.
During maintenance visits, our technicians will:
- Inspect and change filters
- Clean the coils
- Check the blower motor
- Check the air handler
- Fix any loose contacts, connections, or belts
- Clear the condensate drain
- Check voltage and amperage
- Inspect all other electronic and mechanical components
Often, the minor adjustments and tune-ups performed during maintenance visits are enough to improve performance and efficiency. Sometimes our technicians will notice another potential issue that may require a repair. Fixing smaller repairs early is helpful for preventing larger repairs later in the summer when you need your AC most.
How Often Should My Air Conditioner Be Maintained?
Air conditioner maintenance should be performed at least once per year, usually in the spring before the really hot weather sets in. But this is Florida we're talking about! Our humid, tropical climate means that our air conditioners are running year-round and working hard to constantly cool and dehumidify our indoor air. Depending on how much use your AC gets, it may even be a good idea to have your AC serviced every six months for your peace of mind.
How You Can Optimize Performance & Comfort
In addition to scheduling professional AC maintenance in Bradenton, there are a few things you can do to take care of your air conditioning system. Keeping the system free of dust is essential to keeping your air conditioner running efficiently. The filters should be checked monthly and changed or cleaned regularly. When replacing your filter, make sure you are using the correct size for your system. Turn off the power and remove the filter. Check the filter to see if it is clogged with dust and dirt. If so, replace the filter or clean it, if your system has a reusable filter that can be cleaned.
The other thing you can do to help your air conditioner run efficiently is to check around the condenser outside your home to make sure nothing is blocking it. Trim or remove any shrubs, leaves, grass, or plants from around the compressor to prevent overheating and decreased energy efficiency. You should leave about two feet of clearance around the outdoor unit for optimal performance.
