Maintenance Checklist
Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups.

Contractors get busy once summer and winter come, so it's best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall. To remember, you might plan the check-ups around the time changes in the spring and fall.

Breakdowns - How to handle an overloaded air conditioner
Have you ever been sitting in your home experiencing a nice moment with the air conditioning running... and the unit breaks down and your home becomes a sweat box? Would you like to know how to fix this problem? Well your air conditioner has safety mechanisms that cut in when the coil on the back of your outdoor condenser gets too hot. The pressure builds up in your system and your unit cuts off on high head pressure.
So some simple things you can do to help prevent this occurring are the following:
* The first thing is to make sure there is shade over your air conditioner, while still not restricting the airflow around the unit. Now, if your system still cuts out you can get a sprinkler and spray a fine mist over the back of your coil on the outside unit. This will reduce the pressures in the system and allow the system to keep running. This is a really handy trick when it's very hot you have visitors and your unit cuts out.

Cleaning air conditioners
Innovative Air AZ Air conditioning installer Julius recommends cleaning your air conditioner for better life of the machine and your environment. One cause of indoor air contamination is due to bacterial and fungal contamination of air filters, heat transfer coils and ductwork within airconditioning systems that are poorly designed and maintained. Coefficient of performance The efficiency of a refrigeration system is measured by its coefficient of performance (COP), and is normally given as the ratio of the refrigeration effect to the compressor power.

Installing an air conditioner
To install an air conditioner for example a split system Fujitsu, you need a qualified air conditioning installer. Some companies like Fujitsu recommend installers or have conditions that if your system is not installed to their requirements your warranty is void.
