Don’t Skip the Small Stuff
All summer long your air conditioner has worked tirelessly to keep your home cool. And while fall is fast approaching, there are still a couple more months of warm temperatures ahead in the Orlando area. So, to ensure that your unit continues to keep you comfortable, it’s important that your HVAC system receives the TLC that it needs.
Fortunately, the American Air & Heat team provides the most comprehensive checkups around—from in-depth AC maintenance in Orlando, FL, to thorough heating services in Lake Mary, FL. Put simply, if there’s a problem with your HVAC unit, we will discover and resolve it.
Concentrate on the Condensate
You see, we pay attention to even the smallest of details and go the extra mile to dot our I’s and cross our T’s. We unearth and perform repairs, clean units to ensure that clogs or dirty parts don’t turn into catastrophes and address your every comfort need.
Even more, we include a very important step in our routine maintenance services that other HVAC companies might overlook: cleaning the condensate drain. If you have central AC, you may have noticed a small line on the outside that’s dripping water. This is your condensate line and it plays an important role in removing any AC-generated condensation from your unit and your home. Cleaning out this drain line isn’t an option. It’s a necessity. In fact, choosing to forgo this important, preventive maintenance step can be catastrophic.
Avoid Drain Pain
Your air conditioner does more than cool your home. It also removes excess moisture from the air. Of course, every drop that your AC unit removes needs to go somewhere. This is where your condensate line comes into play. So, when looking at the big picture of home comfort, it’s important to pay attention to even the smallest of details, such as keeping your condensate drain clear and clean to avoid a big (wet) mess from occurring.
Algae and organic growth can develop inside of an uncleaned condensate drain, which eventually will clog it. This backup in your drain can cause elevated humidity levels, musty odors and, if it overflows, water damage on your property—all of which will damage your budget, your comfort and your peace of mind.
There’s No Time Like the Present
We’re sure you’re familiar with this phrase and it couldn’t ring more true when it comes to cleaning your drain. At American Air & Heat, our team strongly advises homeowners to have their condensate drain cleaned on each visit. Why? Because at the end of the summer, it rains more often and humidity rises. This leads to more condensation being generated by your cooling system—and your budget’s future looks bleak if the drain becomes clogged.
Of course, this time of year is perfect for scheduling HVAC maintenance, as a whole. Our trained and certified technicians have the skills and expertise to provide tune-ups and seasonal maintenance. Using specialized equipment, we perform a thorough inspection of your unit, improving the function of your system and allowing it to run more efficiently. Put simply, we address small problems before they can become big headaches. So, by scheduling a checkup now, you can rest assured that your AC unit will faithfully serve you through the next few warm weeks, while also feeling confident that your heating system is ready for the cooler nights soon to follow.
