Permits protect you, the consumer from unscrupulous contractors. This is achieved through an inspection performed by a government representative who will ensure your installation is up to the latest codes. Always demand your contractors are Florida licensed and pull permits for every replacement.
IAQ is an acronym for Indoor Air Quality. Tropical Frost has many options to drastically improve your indoor air quality. A lot of attention has been placed on IAQ in the past several years, and rightly so. According to the EPA:
- Americans, on average, spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors,1 where the concentrations of some pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.
- People who are often most susceptible to the adverse effects of pollution (e.g., the very young, older adults, people with cardiovascular or respiratory disease) tend to spend even more time indoors.
- Indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent decades due to such factors as energy-efficient building construction (when it lacks sufficient mechanical ventilation to ensure adequate air exchange) and increased use of synthetic building materials, furnishings, personal care products, pesticides, and household cleaners.
The most important part of HVAC maintenance aspect is maintaining unrestricted air flows. Dust, dirt, and debris are an HVAC system’s worst enemies. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor unit, you must keep all filters clean and heat exchangers and coils free of restrictions.
We recommend that your heating and cooling system be checked and serviced twice a year; ideally a spring and autumn tune-up. Also we recommend that you change your filter regularly, depending on the type of filter you have. This alone can eliminate many of the most common problems that need fixing and can significantly reduce the likelihood of a serious breakdown
Here are averages that may help you know how regularly you should get a new air filter at your residence: Vacation house or one occupant and no pets or allergies: every 6–12 months. Ordinary suburban home without pets: every 90 days. One dog or cat: every 60 days.
Many air conditioners can last 15 to 20 years, if maintained properly. You may need a few reairss along the way, but your Tropical frost technician can usually catch and fix small problems during your annual Clean & Check.
