Best Winter AC Maintenance

When you are a resident of St. Petersburg, cooling your home in December is not uncommon, so it is crucial that your cooling system receives the very best AC maintenance available, even during the winter. If you know you are ready to turn off the AC for a couple months, you may be thinking about winterization. The process includes covering your unit after a complete checkup and cleaning. This also gives you the opportunity to take a look at the system and perform small repairs if needed.

For those, however, who know they will need a little cool air in St. Petersburg this winter, these 3 AC maintenance tips, received directly from the pros, will help you have a stress-free season, thanks to a reliable air conditioning unit:

  1. While the winter months mean fewer allergens will be present in the air, filters still need to be changed regularly.
  2. Did you know that leaky ducts can lose up to 30% of airflow? No one ever likes paying for something if it is not necessary, and that loss translates directly into more dollars on your monthly energy bill.
  3. Regardless the time of the year, dust accumulates in your home. The same happens within your air conditioning unit, especially in the coils. If not taken care of, the amount of dust will build up, and reduce your system’s capability to keep you cool.

Overall, the most important tip we can give you to ensure you get the most of your system, is to hire St. Petersburg experts to perform any work you may need. Only people with extensive knowledge will be able to provide you with the best AC maintenance.

Springtime AC Maintenance

Now that it’s officially spring, you to need to start thinking about springtime AC maintenance in St. Petersburg, Largo, Seminole, and Clearwater. Winter is gone for good, meaning we’ll soon be cranking up the air conditioning to combat the hot Florida summer.  When the temperature heats up, you want to know for certain that your home will be as cool as you need. Here at Total Air, we can do a full inspection of your system to make sure it’s ready for summer.

When you call us for AC maintenance, we check:

  • Refrigerant levels: Low levels could indicate a leak that can cause your compressor to burn up resulting in a very expensive repair.
  • All electrical components: We’ll make sure each part is working properly in order to efficiently cool your home.
  • Evaporator and condenser coils: If these are dirty or damaged, the energy efficiency of your unit will decrease greatly, leading to monthly higher electric bills.
  • Thermostat: We check that it is properly calibrated so your air conditioning isn’t working overtime.
  • Check, clean, and replace all filters: This ensures that the air going into your home is as clean as possible and there is no additional strain on the fans.

Scheduling springtime AC maintenance for your St. Petersburg, Largo, Seminole, and Clearwater home will not only save you money, but provides peace of mind during the coming summer months.

However, when your unit is running properly it requires a lot less energy, which costs you a lot less money.

Here at Total Air, we offer 100% customer satisfaction, 24/7 emergency repair services, regular maintenance checks, and straightforward and affordable prices.  Furthermore, if another company advises you to purchase a major repair or replacement, you can come to us for a free second opinion.
