What to think about when purchasing an AC in Summerland
Summerland Key AC sales are generally for the smaller residential buildings. This means that you will find 1 to 3 ton units in abundance. When you purchase your unit, have the Summerland Key AC sales professional calculate the total tons required for your living space. Do not say that you have a 2 or 3 bedroom home as this does not give adequate information to the professional. Give the total square footage of the space to be cooled. When you can, it is advised that you have a home visit consultation to determine the correct unit.
In addition to the size of the AC/HVAC system, purchasers should take into account the harsh weather conditions of the keys. Warranty and repair documentation is a must. A single year in Summerland Key could expose your house to two or three hurricanes, not to mention tropical storms. And while your home owner’s insurance may cover AC replacement and repair, it is a good idea to ensure that you have a warranty on the unit itself.
Common problems with Summerland ACs
Regardless of the make and the model of your AC/HVAC unit, you will have to have services and repairs conducted at some point. The most common repair will be a changing of the fuse in the machine. In many cases, especially after a storm or flooding, the unit will work for a short period of time and then quit. The fuses controlling the unit have shorted out, in many instances. Do not attempt to take off the cover and change these yourself as there is a high risk for electric shock. Contact a Summerland AC Maintenance professional.
Due to the higher winds and storms of the area, AC units may also experience a denting of the piping to the unit. Generally, this is a small copper pipe. The pipe is easily damaged and dented which could cause a leak or a decrease in the airflow to and from the unit to the home. If the AC is not secured well enough, various lines (not just the copper line to the Unit) could become separated, damaged, or pinched.
Finally, if there has been a storm and the mounting of the AC has become unlevel, the AC may not function properly. Typically, a person will start to hear the fan screech or wobble when in operation. While this could also be rust or debris in the gears, it is also common of an unlevel AC unit. Call a maintenance professional to service your device.
