AC Maintenance

Like all machines, air conditioners benefit from regular maintenance. We know that for a fact. Over the years we’ve dealt with countless A/C issues that could have easily been avoided. The problem? Neglected systems are far more likely to malfunction than those that are properly maintained.

An Ounce of Prevention

AC-Maintenance-300x200The hot, humid weather in South Florida forces home and business owners to run their air conditioners nearly continuously during the scorching summer months. This can put an incredible amount of stress and strain on vital components, which obviously wear out faster during periods of heavy usage. The main reason we answer so many emergency repair calls during heat waves is that most folks neglect their A/C systems until they desperately need them.

In addition to fewer break downs and more consistent service, here’s a brief list of the benefits of air conditioner yearly maintenance:

  • A cooler, more comfortable indoor space
  • Lower utility bills
  • A much longer lifespan for your system
  • Fewer repairs
  • Better for the environment
  • Quieter cooling
  • Affordable

Tailored Maintenance Programs

The more you use you air conditioning, the more maintenance it will require. Although Air conditioner yearly maintenance may suffice for snowbirds, we recommend that full-time residents of South Florida have their systems serviced four times a year. These regular, seasonal checkups can help minimize the risk of a disruption during the warmer months.

What’s Involved?

Even when an A/C system is working as it should, it will slow down a bit and use more energy as the season wears on. Our technicians perform the following maintenance tasks to return them to peak performance:

  • Changing or cleaning dirty, clogged air filters
  • Checking for proper amperage draw
  • Checking coolant levels; adding coolant, if necessary
  • Inspecting cooling fins for damage

Additional Benefits

Because they know how important regular service is, most major manufacturers now require maintenance documentation before they process payouts and cover extended warranties. If the owner cannot provide proof that their AC system received regular maintenance service while under its original factory warranty, chances are they will not qualify for extended warranty coverage. As a licensed service provider, Cousins Air offers maintenance agreements to both commercial and residential users. The cost of these packages varies based on the system and the energy needs of its users.

Want to save money on your cooling bills and extend your air conditioning system’s lifespan? The only way to do it is to complete regular maintenance tasks, most of which involve simple cleaning.

Like any sensitive, sophisticated machine, air conditioners must be serviced from time to time. For window and portable units, changing the filters and cleaning the inside coils before periods of heavy usage should suffice.

If we could educate the public on a single aspect of air conditioner maintenance, it would have to be the importance of coil cleaning. No matter the make or model you own, your system has two separate coils: the evaporator (indoor) and the condenser (outdoor).

Want an easy and affordable way to save money on your home cooling costs? As AC professionals, we can tell you with 100 percent certainty that regular maintenance is the answer. There’s really no way around it.

Testimonials

John - just wanted you to know about the installation of my new air conditioner yesterday. Your installers Alex & David showed up on time (a feat for contractors), removed my existing equipment, prepared the house for the new installation, and then installed the new equipment. They were efficient, personable (another feat for contractors) and completed the job on time (need I say more). I've been with Cousins through two houses over about 13 years and I've never been disappointed. So kudos to your firm and the people who you employ. I'd be remiss if i didn't comment about Joe...

-Jack W.

Owners usually only hear from their customers when there is a complaint. However this is a “complement" about your company and some of your associates……….My wife,Theresa, and I, wanted to let you know your installation team of Kohrie, Alex, Rob, and Omar did an outstanding job installing our new air conditioners. They were professional, polite, neat and clean. It was a big job as far as we were concerned, with short notice and tight attic space, but they put me and my wife at ease immediately. When finished everything was neat and clean with the new air conditioners working [READ MORE]

We woke up Saturday morning and the house was hot. No air, no circulation via the fan . . . nada. Who passed the law that your a/c unit can only break during the hottest part of the summer AND on a weekend? As our previous a/c guy has now retired, we were at a loss as to who to contact. Fortunately, we have a good friend "in the business" (wholesale side) and he told us that Cousins was (by far) the people we wanted to deal with. A technician (Thomas) came out later that day (he called several times during the day to make sure we knew what [READ MORE]

I have nothing but good things to say about Cousins. We had so many problems with both our AC units in our new home and Cousins came to our rescue every time. We hired them after trying to get ******* (the company who installed the units to fix our AC). ******* gave us such a run-around, wrong information, and no call backs (even when Carrier called them on my behalf). We lost days without AC because of *******'s incompetence. Cousin’s was efficient, reliable and their techs knew their stuff. They came to fix my AC even before [READ MORE]

-Chart C.

Thank you so very much for sending your team out to evaluate our broken air conditioning system.Furthermore, thank you for the thoughtful presentation of options for replacing the system.Three choices were explained, and after input based upon your many years of experience, we confidently selected the Carrier 17 SEER, 4 Ton, two-stage system. Installation was professionally done by two installers and two separate supervisors stopped by to make sure everything was installed correctly.So far so good, and so quiet. We will monitor [READ MORE]
