2021 Hurricane Season

All-Pro-hurricane

Living in Florida, you probably are used to preparing for bad weather, but is preparing your Air Conditioning System part of that routine?

According to forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30, is expected to be an “above normal” season with 13 to 20 named storms, including 3 to 5 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher).

These tips will keep you comfortable and your AC protected in the event of a hurricane:

Clear and Cover

Prior to the storm, bring in any outdoor tables, chairs or other items that could become airborne and cause damage to the AC System. You can even cover the outside unit with a tarp in order to keep it free from flying leaves, dirt and other debris, but make sure to remove the covering before you turn the unit back on!

Cool Down Your House

Before the threat of the storm is imminent, try cooling your house as much as possible so you are comfortable for a while after you turn off your AC System.

Turn Off the Power

Nearly 90% of all electrical system damage occurs when the AC is left on during a thunderstorm or hurricane. You may have to tolerate a bit of heat and humidity when you turn off your AC but leaving it on could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs.

Wait 20 Minutes

Keep the AC off until the storm passes and don't be in a rush to turn it back on. In the event of flooding, don’t restore power to the equipment until it is completely dry and you are certain that it is safe to do so.

Even if the unit looks unharmed, wait a minimum of 20 minutes after the power is restored to turn the AC System back on. Unstable or “dirty” power is common in the minutes after the power returns.

Stay safe and don’t forget to include your AC System in your Hurricane Preparedness Plan.

Forgetting To Change Your Filter Puts A Strain On Your Air Conditioning And Can Shorten Its Lifetime!

filter-blog

80% of breakdowns are as a result of a dirty filter

Wet, dark conditions provide the perfect environment for the growth of microorganisms.The slime grows quickly, left untreated multiple issues are quickly created as bacteria loves dust! As dirt accumulates on the filter, air can't pass, the motor has to work harder.As the slime grows it will completely block the condensate line, causing the pan to overflow and the air conditioning will break down.

Dirty air filters affect the air quality and can exacerbate symptoms if anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. If you have a pet, dander accumulates in the system and then spreads allergens throughout the household. White slime will be found in in the drain line, evaporator pan and condensate pump.

Simple Yet Effective Tips to Prolong The Life Of Your Air Conditioning System

The most common cause of a breakdown is because of a dirty filter!

As dirt accumulates on the filter, air can't pass, the motor then has to work harder, this can result in higher bills, costly repairs or even a replacement unit if it's older.\

Dirty filters affect the air quality, if any of your family suffer from allergies or asthma they can exacerbate the symptoms. If you have a pet, dander accumulates in the system and then spreads allergens throughout the house. Changing the filter regularly is simple yet effective

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Just like a car, your Air Conditioning needs regular maintenance to run efficiently.

Regular maintenance ensures that your units are running at their peak performance. All-Pro provides a genuine 33 point performance test. Benefit from fewer expensive and inconvenient breakdowns by scheduling
an Air Conditioning Tune Up

Did You Know?

During the hot humid summer months it is normal for your Air Conditioning system to drain up to 30 gallons of water outside of your house per day.

As your Air Conditioning is cooling your home it is also dehumidifying, humidity is the water vapor in the air, your Air Conditioning pulls the water out of the humid air and dispels it outside.

Some systems require the addition of an extra pump to help pump the water out, especially when there could be sediment in underground piping.

Your All-Pro technician will offer his recommendations during his maintenance visit

Why you shouldn't set your thermostat above 78 degrees

As previously mentioned your Air Conditioning cools and dehumidifies the air, setting your thermostat above 78 degrees may save energy as the system is running less but it won't be running enough to reduce the humidity.

Warm humid conditions are the breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Mold can cause damage to your home, your Air Conditioning system, particularly the coils and can cause serious health issues.

Mold spores can cause allergic reactions, coughing, throat irritation and upper respiratory symptoms.

Follow our simple suggestions and you can breathe easy

  • Cool your home down to a comfortable level before the storm arrives, you may wish to consider lowering your thermostat a couple of degrees lower that usual, close all doors, windows, blinds and curtains.
  • Check the outside of your property to ensure that all plants, ornaments and pool accessories are either secure or brought inside. Cover the external Air Conditioning unit with a tarp or plywood and secure it with hurricane or condenser straps.
  • If you are concerned about flooding in your area and if it is possible, move the external unit to a higher level.
  • Turn your refrigerator down to it's coldest setting 24 - 48 hours before a storm and try not to leave the door open for long lengths of time, this will help to extend the period keeping the contents cool should there be a power outage.
  • Once the storm arrives turn off the power to the Air Conditioning. This will protect your unit from power surges that come from lightning strikes or the electricity being turned back on.
  • Once the storm has passed and it is safe to venture out. Check that your outside unit has not been damaged and turn the power to the Air Conditioning back on.
  • Changing your Air Conditioning filters on a regular basis and keeping the drain line clear and are necessary preventative measures to ensure the smooth operation of your Air Conditioning system.
  • If you have any concerns regarding the performance of your Air Conditioning or Electrical issues before or after a storm call All-Pro your local Electrical and Air Conditioning Specialists.

6 Home Features That Cut Energy Use

The move toward passive heating and cooling is growing.

It saves money and reduces greenhouse gases. Here are some ways to cut down on heat gains and losses from your home:

Insulation

Insulation slows down heat flow. In winter this means less heat escapes and in summer, it keeps your air conditioner from working overtime. In both cases, you have smaller equipment to worry about when building or replacing. Upgrading insulation is a sure-fire way to cut your energy use.

Proper sealing

If air leaks in around windows and doors, you undo everything your insulation does. Known as infiltration, this air carries moisture in summer and low temperatures in winter, taxing your equipment and wasting energy. Sealing off these locations is a fairly cheap way to cut back on your energy bills.

Window locations

In the northern hemisphere, the sun in winter sun shines from the south. The opposite is true for the southern hemisphere. Having large windows face the winter sun allows for sunlight to heat up those rooms, reducing your heating load. The downside is that more heat is lost through these windows at night and on cloudy days.

Window treatments

Curtains and blinds can reduce heat gain and loss depending on their insulative value. Blocking out the sun in summer keeps the space cool even if you have no shading from outside. Trees and foliage outside your window also reduce heat gain in the summer. If you pick the right trees that lose their leaves in winter, you still gain the advantage of winter sunlight heating your home.

Heavy curtains keep the heat in on cold winter nights, reducing losses from large windows.

Overhangs

Strategically placed overhangs can prevent your large windows from creating large problems in the summer. During this season, the sun is high in the sky. Overhangs that block windows from direct sunlight reduce the heating effect of the sun and keep your cooling bill down. The winter sun's low path across the sky allows sunlight to enter the room without being blocked by the overhang.

Type of glass

Glass performance has two main characteristics: heat transfer coefficient and shading coefficient. The heat transfer coefficient indicates how well the glass prevent heat from flowing through. The shading coefficient affects the sunlight entering the space. A higher shading coefficient keeps more sun out. Glass thickness, the number of panes and coating type all impact these numbers and vary between manufacturers.

You still need well-maintained equipment.

Even with minimal heat gains and losses, your HVAC equipment needs to run efficiently. Give us a call to assess ways you can reduce your energy usage and keep your equipment in top shape.
