Houston AC Repair Specialist offers homeowners ways to extend the life of their AC Compressors
Alpha4Realac.com says these steps can go a long way towards enjoying problem free air conditioning for many years
Bright Ashaka, owner of Alpha 4 Real AC and Heating Service says failing to properly maintain your air conditioner Compressors may be costly as the area gets closer to summer.
“Typically, summer is very hot in the Houston area. This is the best time to call in the air conditioning professionals to look at your AC unit and make sure it is working properly,” he said this week in his office in Katy, TX.
“Failing to do could prove very costly. The closer we get to summer, the more expensive it might become to fix your broken AC. Most homeowners wait till it gets very hot but that is not good,” he added.
Ashaka said one AC component that needs to be looked at is the Compressor. “The AC Compressor is very important. Without it functioning properly, your AC will not cool your home so it is really important that it is working optimally,” he said.
He advised home owners to change their air conditioning filters regularly to extend the life of the AC Compressor.
“This is perhaps the simplest thing you can do to extend the life of your AC compressor in Houston, Texas. It is also the least costly. Yet, many homeowners neglect to do it. Often, when we go into homes to repair air conditioners, we find that the filter has not been changed for months, sometimes longer that seven or eight months,” he said.
“This is killing your AC Compressor. Dirty, wet and clogged air conditioner filter adds unnecessary pressure to your Compressor thereby shortening its lifespan,” he added.
The Katy Ac Service veteran said homeowners should also ensure smooth air flow around the Compressors.
“Sometimes homeowners allow debris and dirt to clog the vent surrounding the AC Condenser. This prevents free airflow and may make the Compressor become hot. This will shorten the life of the compressor, without a doubt,” he said.
He added that installing the 5-2-1 AC Compressor Saver also extends the life of the equipment by moderating the power the Compressor needs during startup.
“Alpha 4 Real AC and Heating Service installs and services 5-2-1 AC Compressor Saver in Houston area. We have done so for many years. This is not very expensive but it makes a huge difference in the life of your home’s air conditioning Compressor especially in very hot weather like we have in the Houston area,” Ashaka added.
