I love living in St.
The area is truly beautiful. I enjoy the views of the water, the history, palm trees and abundance of sunshine. I don’t mind the long, hot and humid summers. I make sure that my air conditioner is functioning properly and keeping my home perfectly cool and comfortable. My enrollment in a maintenance plan with a local HVAC company includes a spring service call. A certified HVAC technician thoroughly inspects, cleans, tests and adjusts the cooling unit. He tightens wires, tests the refrigerant, calibrates the thermostat, cleans the coils and completes the necessary tasks to ensure reliability. This troubleshooting fulfills the manufacturer’s warranty requirements, optimizes system efficiency and can be extended to extend equipment lifespan. I’m also diligent about regularly replacing air filters. This past summer, I was very surprised when my air conditioner had some issues. I noticed the unit running constantly. Areas of the house felt slightly overheated no matter how low I adjusted the thermostat. There was an unpleasant odor and dust flowing from the supply vents. Plus, my monthly energy bills were considerably higher than expected. I finally decided to schedule an air conditioner repair. The technician listened to my complaints and tested the ductwork. He found that 30% of conditioned air was leaking out through small holes and cracks at the seams. These same imperfections were welcoming in unfiltered air and contaminants. Because the maximum amount of cool air was failing to reach the intended destination, the air conditioner was forced to run longer, work harder and use more energy. The solution was professional duct sealing.
