Florida Air Conditioning Tips
All rental units in Fisherman's Cove are equipped with Central Air Conditioning for your comfort. However often our guests are unfamiliar with the problem of "FREEZING UP" that may occur because of Florida's high humidity!
What Causes Freeze-Up?
Running your Air Conditioning with the Sliding Glass doors and/or windows & doors OPEN will often freeze-up your Air Conditioning during humid weather.
How Will I Know When The Air Conditioning Is Frozen?
When your Air Conditioning stops cooling and it gets HOT in your unit , the likely cause will be that it is frozen up.
What Do I Do When The Air Conditioning Is Frozen?
Unfortunately - you will SWEAT! You need to turn off the Air Conditioning and leave it off for 24 hours until it thaws out.
Once the Air Conditioning is frozen up, a service call may have to be initiated, and you may have to go WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING for a day or two until the service technician arrives.
How Can I Prevent Freeze-Up And Keep My Unit Cool?It's really simple, keep all doors and windows closed and let your Air Conditioning work.
Air Conditioned Rooms are just like refrigerators, if you leave the refrigerator door open all of the time, the refrigerator will never get cold. If you leave your rental units doors/windows open all the time, you will never get COOL!
If you want to enjoy Florida Fresh Air breezes - TURN OFF THE AIR CONDITIONING AND OPEN EVERYTHING UP. Later if you chose, Close up and turn the Air back on for sleeping comfort.
