Like most people, your air conditioner’s outside unit needs its space—otherwise it cannot work properly. To know why, you need to know how a central air conditioner works.
Here is a brief overview:
Your central AC has an indoor unit and an outside unit. The inside unit absorbs heat from your home’s air and then transfers the heat to the outside unit, which then dumps the heat outside.
To disperse heat, the outside unit needs plenty of airflow, which is why your outside unit has a fan. (Think of it like when you blow on a spoonful of soup before you take a bite.)
However, a decorative air conditioner cover restricts airflow around the unit. Restricting airflow can cause the air conditioner’s compressor to overheat and die.
That is awful news for you.
The compressor is the metal “heart” of the outside unit. In addition, once it needs replacing, you might as well replace the entire outside unit. Yes, a compressor is that expensive to replace.
H2- why you need to clean the outside Air Conditioner unit twice a year
While you may not have a decorative Air conditioner cover, you may have other things that can cause the same problem, including:
All these restrict airflow and cause your AC to work inefficiently, meaning you have higher energy bills.
One common problem we would like to highlight here is dirt. The outside unit is always exposed to the outside elements, so the unit often gets covered in dirt, dust, grass and leaves.
That is why air conditioning manufacturers recommend an annual checkup. Get one from Aloha Ac Rheem® air conditioner contractor today now!

H2- This outside AC unit could use some cleaning
That is why you should clean the outside unit at least twice a year.
You can either clean it yourself using a special coil foaming cleaner and water sprayer (make sure you use a gentle setting).
Alternatively, you can have a professional do it. Most contractors will wash the outside unit as part of an Air conditioner maintenance visit. In South Florida, your Air conditioner needs maintenance at least twice a year because we use it so often.
Maintenance also helps prevent the AC from breaking down, which is a handy benefit if you want constantly cool air during our sizzling, wipe-your-sweaty-brow-every-5-seconds summers.
Spring is usually your best bet to get maintenance, because it is easier to schedule an appointment with a contractor.

Your air conditioning system will be working overtime in the Florida heatwave this summer – follow Alohaac tips to ensure your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC) is working at its best:
1. Don’t let your HVAC work more than is necessary. And don’t let your office get too hot before turning it on. It’s key to regulate your temperature so as not to stress your unit. Keep doors and windows closed when your AC is turned on, and keep shades and curtains drawn on very hot days. Avoid having direct sunlight streaming in through doors and windows. As much as possible, don’t operate other heat-generating appliances in the daytime when your AC is going to be working.
2. Replace your air filters on a regular basis. Do this at least once every 3 months. Experts estimate that you can reduce your energy cost by as much as 10% by keeping up on this task. And the cleaner air will benefit your staff’s health as well. Air conditioning energy assessments are often undervalued!
3. Keep your thermostat constant. Changing your thermostat’s setting constantly can result in inefficiency. If you wish you can increase the temperature by a few degrees in the day time while you are away. When in cooling mode, switch on your AC fan to prevent hot or cold pockets from forming. This can also help prevent your condenser from icing up.
4. Keep your outside unit free of dust and dirt. Clear plants and other items from around its perimeter for at least 12-18 inches. Ensure also that indoor vents remain unobstructed to keep air circulation going for industrial air conditioning, this is so important.
5. Schedule regular tune-ups Have a reliable HVAC technician perform maintenance checks on your unit, preferably before the beginning of summer.
Our staff is fully trained in the HVAC techniques required to ensure this process is carried out efficiently. The result is that your air will be fresher, easier to breathe, and less likely to cause allergic reactions.

A lot of people ask, “Does the UV light produce smells”. Well the answer is yes, some brands do for a short period of time after being newly installed. However, the brand we offer does not produce any noticeable smell after install.
The FRESH-AIRE UV light is installed in the duct-work of your central air system and is designed to help reduce odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs and mold in your home.
Detox the air in your home and protect you and your loved ones from:
How does the UV Light work?
By removing airborne contaminants as the air is circulated by the central HVAC system. Using a proprietary absorption media to capture VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) then reduces the captured constituents through an innovative photo-cytaltic oxidation process (PCO) which breaks them down into elemental carbon dioxide and water vapor.
Toxic airborne compounds are captured in the photo-catalytic carbon matrix
As odors and chemical contaminants circulate through your air handling system, the ultraviolet light unit utilizes a highly absorptive carbon media which captures these contaminants, removing them from the air stream, much like a sponge absorbs water.
The toxic molecules are broken down into simple water vapor and CO2
During the off cycles of the air handler the UV Light self-regenerating photo-catalytic oxidation process breaks down the captured contaminants and frees up the carbon cell to be able to capture additional airborne VOC’s and odors.
UV Light limits the spead of bio-contaminants like mold and viruses
In addition to the units system’s ability to absorb airborne VOCs, the UV light helps to maintain the cleanliness of your central ac system by shining on the duct-work, cooling coils, heat strips and blowers that are prone to biological growth that can contaminate and clog the system.
UV-C Light Kills Germs
For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms, thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.
The Science of Clean Air
Over time mold can build up on cooling coils. this is a health risk that robs the air system of efficiency and requires cleaning with chemicals. The germicidal UV light inside kills mold and keeps the coil and air system interior clean.
Recent studies have shown that the level of invisible airborne organic chemical and odor contaminates in our indoor air is generally two to five times higher then the levels found outdoors. while some of these substances merely smell bad, others can be extremely harmful.
these contaminates, known as Volatile Organic Compounds are carbon-based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature. The unique technology inside the Fresh-Arie UV helps to eliminate VOCs, making your home a safer and more pleasant place to live.
Common Sources of VOCs Include:
We look forward to discussing your home air quality with you.
