As we sit in the Sarasota Florida winter without our air conditioning on at this time of year it is easy to just open the windows and let the warm winter breeze run throughout our homes.
As enjoyable as this is one needs to think that in a few months the air conditioning will be turned back on as we all get ready for the hot summer months that are ahead of us.
With that understood, it is important to realize that proper maintenance will help prolong the usage of your central air conditioning system in any Sarasota Florida mobile home.
Central air conditioners are one of the most expensive repairs within a mobile home if they need to be totally replaced and knowing how and when to service them will help save you, the mobile home owner, thousands of dollars!
- Proper Professional Service:
There are a number of reputable air conditioning service companies in and around the Sarasota Florida area who can help you service the unit on a regular basis. It is always a good idea to get your unit serviced twice per year in order to make sure the unit is working and running as efficiently as possible. Many of these companies will offer a yearly discount service if you sign up with them to have two services done per year which can help save you additional money on your bi-annual services.
2. Rid The Unit Of Excess Debris:
Anytime a storm comes through that blows up debris from the yard and other areas of the park make sure you take a quick look at your air conditioning unit to see if there has been any additional debris that have gotten caught into your unit. Unscrewing the top of the unit and manually pulling these items out of your unit will help in the running of your air conditioning system.
3. Replace Your Filters:
This is one of the most inexpensive parts of owning a central air conditioning system but one of the most imperative when looking at having a properly operating unit. Air filters come in a variety of sizes and the technician who is working on your unit during your bi-annual services will be able to provide you with the correct size, shape and brand that your unit uses. Each unit will specify when and how often you are to change these filters but keeping a few extra on hand within your home will make this job easier for all involved.
Having a mobile home in the Sarasota Florida area with central air is great for resale. The key here is to have a functional unit that is in good working order as that will bring additional value to you when look to sell your home.
By following the basic maintenance steps listed above it very well may help prolong your unit for several additional years saving you thousands of dollars in the long run!
