Maintaining Your Marine Air Conditioning System

ocean-skyBoating is part of the culture in Hilton Head Island, Tybee Island, Skidaway Island, and throughout the area. Unfortunately, the heat and humidity can sometimes get in the way of this culture. A sudden heat wave can keep you at shore, but you deserve to be comfortable using your investment no matter the time of year.

Having a quality marine air conditioning system is the best way to combat the heat and humidity. But this means little year after year if you don’t keep it maintained. Routine maintenance of your air conditioner can make it easier to enjoy a trip out on the water or a day with friends at the docks because you won’t have to worry so much about it breaking down when you need it.

The Benefits of Marine AC Maintenance

The primary benefit of maintaining your marine air conditioner is that you can prevent problems. That includes a sudden breakdown of your air conditioner while you’re hoping to relax on a warm day. It also includes small repairs here and there. A refrigerant leak means temperatures aren’t as high as they should be, but you wear down the system anyway.

A drain leak could cause drainage to back up onto your boat, and you want to avoid problems like this as much as possible. Even something as small as dirt on the evaporator coil can cause a lot of trouble for the air conditioner, causing it to break down when you really need it. Professional marine AC maintenance is the best way to…

  • Ensure that your air conditioner stays in the best condition possible, so that you can avoid problems, small and large.
  • Maintain battery life or fuel efficiency.
  • Keep your air conditioner working smoothly for longer, preventing premature system replacement.

Call in for air conditioning maintenance early in the spring, if you can, so that you have the rest of the summer to enjoy your system.

Why Call in HVAC Professionals for Marine Air Maintenance

A professional technician is the best choice for maintaining your marine air conditioning system. You may be experienced in maintaining other aspects of your boat, but this is something best left to someone with experience in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems. That way, they can not only service the system according to standard maintenance procedure; they’ll also be able to recognize problems with the AC when they come up as part of an inspection.

In particular, your air conditioner should be serviced by someone experienced with marine air conditioners. We install Dometic systems (formerly known by the names Cruisair and Marine Air) for boats of all sizes, but we can also service systems we didn’t install. If it turns out your air conditioner is in need of replacement, we can recommend one from one of the most trusted names in climate control for marine use.
