Frequently Asked Questions
Is air conditioner maintenance necessary?
Maintenance is necessary to prolong your air conditioning unit's life and effectiveness. Our Savannah AC maintenance team can help address common issues by changing dirty air conditioners, cleaning dusty evaporator and condenser coils, correcting bent coil fins, and clearing drain lines to prevent clogs, overflow, or breakdowns.
How can I protect my outdoor air conditioning unit?
You can effectively protect your outside air conditioner, such as setting up a fence or cage around the unit and keeping your AC unit off while doing yardwork around it.
What temperature should I set on my air conditioner’s thermostat?
While the temperature of your home is a personal preference, 78º Fahrenheit is considered by the U.S. Department of Energy to be the ideal air conditioner setting for both energy savings and comfortable living.
Will cleaning my air conditioner filter make it colder?
Cleaning and replacing your air conditioner filter may not directly affect the temperature of the air, but a clogged filter will restrict airflow, preventing it from flowing into your home.
Do evaporator coils need to be cleaned?
To avoid airflow issues in your cooling system, evaporator coils should be regularly cleaned. We recommend scheduling a cleaning every six months.
What happens if my air conditioner coils are dirty?
Dirty coils can cause issues like restricted airflow, higher energy bills, and, in some cases, a broken-down air conditioning unit.
