WHY PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE?

 

  • Lack of regularly scheduled maintenance and filter replacement voids manufacture warranty.
  • The ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America) says 97% of all AC breakdowns are due to lack of maintenance and improper filter changes!
  • 1/20th of an inch of dirt on the coil decreases efficiency by 21%! (EPA)
  • 1/8th of an inch of dust on the blower wheel can reduce efficiency by up to 30%! (Texas A&M)
  • The typical air conditioning system runs 3200 hours a year in Florida and that is the same as you driving your car 102,000 miles a year.
  • The average Florida home of 1500 sq. ft. produces approximately 30 pounds of dust a year. That’s about a wheelbarrow full.
  • An ounce of that dust holds about 4000 dust mites!
  • Indoor Air can be 2-5 times and as much as 100 times more polluted than the air outside your home. (EPA)
  • 50% of ALL illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. (American College of Allergists)
