Be an Early Spring Bird and Schedule AC Maintenance

Spring is just around the corner, and although there’s no shortage of warm weather here in the Cayman Islands, it’s still a great idea to schedule your spring AC maintenance as early as possible. 

AC maintenance is crucial if you want to improve your system’s efficiency and increase its lifespan along the way. Polar Bear Air Conditioning offers the leading air conditioning repairs in Grand Cayman and the surrounding areas. You can rest assured that your system is in the best possible hands when you trust us with your maintenance. 

Let’s take a sneak peek at what’s involved in your AC maintenance here!

Change Air Filters

The most important thing you can do for your air conditioner is change air filters on a regular basis. 

Dust and debris are your AC system’s biggest enemies. Any particles that enter the unit will build up around the evaporator coil and other interior components, causing them to malfunction. Not to mention, these pollutants are then circulated throughout your home and reduce your indoor air quality. 

The recommended time between new air filters is between 30-90 days. You might have to change filters more often if you suffer from allergies or have pets. Luckily, your friendly Polar Bear technicians are here to help! Our team will change your filter during your scheduled AC maintenance, so you never have to worry about debris floating around your air ducts or home.

Sanitize Air Handler

In Cayman, microbial growth is commonly found in the dark and damp environment of your indoor air handler. If relative humidity levels are not kept low enough spores can quick spread to your duct system, which allows them to spread throughout your home and contaminate your indoor air quality

Unfortunately, air handlers provide the perfect environment for mold to thrive. The dust and humidity that collects in air handlers feed the spores and contribute to their growth. 

So, how do you prevent mold on your air handler? The answer is simple—with some preventative maintenance

The next time you schedule a service for your air conditioning unit, rest assured that a member of the Polar Bear team will thoroughly inspect and sanitize the air handler before replacing your air filters

Clean Evaporator and Condenser Coils

Keeping your evaporator and condenser coils clean is as important as changing your air filter on a regular basis. Any debris that builds up on the coils will lead to decreased energy efficiency, higher utility costs, and, most likely, problems with your AC unit

Unfortunately, due to their location, the evaporator and condenser coils can easily get dirty. The evaporator coils are housed in the indoor unit, and they are responsible for absorbing heat and humidity in the home. Any particles that don’t get trapped by the air filter can collect on the evaporator coils. The condenser coils, on the other hand, are found in your outdoor condenser unit. Dirt from the outdoor air can build up on the condenser coils and force your cooling system to work harder than it has to. 

If you schedule regular AC maintenance with Polar Bear, you don’t have to worry about the state of your evaporator and condenser coils. These components are cleaned thoroughly to ensure your HVAC system is performing at its highest efficiency level. 

Check Refrigerants Levels

The comfortable temperatures you enjoy at home wouldn’t be possible without refrigerant. This chemical substance runs throughout your air conditioning unit to remove heat and provide cool air. The beauty of refrigerant is that it can run through thousands of cooling cycles without needing to be refilled. 

Although a central air conditioner should never lose refrigerant unless something is wrong, inspecting refrigerant levels is still an important part of AC maintenance. If your refrigerant levels are lower than normal, it means you have a leak in your system that needs to be fixed immediately. 

Inspect Electrical Connections

Your HVAC system relies on electricity to keep your home cool and comfortable. Any damaged electrical connections can interrupt air flow and pose potential fire safety hazards. During your AC maintenance, a technician will inspect electrical components for proper operation and voltage. We can even check and calibrate your programmable thermostat!

I recently had my air conditioning unit installed by Polar Bear Air Conditioning in Cayman Kai. I was very pleased with the service I received. The workmen, Jerome, Tony, and Nathan, were all professional and courteous. They arrived on time and were dressed in their uniforms. They laid out carpeting where they would be walking inside the house to avoid leaving debris or making a mess. They worked clean and kept the space tidy. They were polite and provided me a good understanding of the work they completed as well as showed me all pieces of equipment. They emailed me a jpg image of each piece of equipment's information plate so that I could record it in my home management software, as requested.Here are some specific details about the work they did:They installed 3 new high-efficiency air conditioning units that are much more energy-efficient (26 SEER) than my old units.They cleaned and disinfected the air ducts, as well as replaced previously installed flex ducts with rigid duct work that is superior in efficiency and durability.They installed new filters to help keep the air clean and free of allergens.They explained the operation of the new units to me and answered all of my questions.They cleaned up after themselves and left my home in good condition.I would highly recommend Polar Bear Air Conditioning to anyone in need of air conditioning installation or service. They are a professional and reliable company that provides excellent customer service.

Our ac stopped working a few weeks ago and Polar Bear sent Roemaine and Tyrone to diagnose the problem. Roemaine and Tyrone very quickly identified the problem and communicated with me. It turns out the best option was replacing the condensing unit which Paul quoted within a matter of minutes and they had expert installation team (Tony and Jerome) complete late in the afternoon with short notice. I’m very happy with their work!

I have, over the years been trying to find a reliable, professional A/C maintenance and repair company. I have tried a few. That search is now over after using Polar Bear. Billy and Jerry were absolutely a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable and professional from the initial diagnosis to the final repair. I highly recommend this company and the team that came to do work on my AC. Tim.

Great work. I received an email and also a call from the dispatcher that the tech would be calling me, and sure enough, the tech (Simon) called shortly after that to let me know he was on his way which was very much appreciated. The customer service from all of the team and updates was spot on, and Simon was very thorough and very knowledgeable. He was also very courteous and professional. I rate Polar Bear as the best company in town. Great work!

Polar Bear's service and response was amazing! Nicole who answered my phone call and scheduled me was extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable! The Technician assigned to me was Simon and he was also extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Within a minute of looking at my system he knew what the errors and issues were! He was able to fix one of the two problems that day, and then came scheduled and came the following day to fix the remaining issue. He was perfectly on time and the courtesy call before arrival both times before arriving was a welcome touch as it made sure that I was ready.Will continue using polar bear for all my HVAC needs! 5*

My experience with Polar Bear has been awesome!!!! From the beginning, the office staff were so professional and kind, then receiving my AC quote, the gentleman has been very prompt in his response time—, the kind of employee that puts customer first and has such a nice and an approachable attitude, very patient in answering my questions and providing guidance as required by me- customer focus completely, then as if that wasn’t enough to convince me to move my AC maintenance and installation to Polar Bear; the technicians that attended to my AC installation provided such excellent service— what stood out was how they used a carpet that was placed on my floor to avoid making any mess on my floor and whatever mess they did make, the technician used their broom to remove it. I know this message is long but I really wanted to express my THANK YOU and appreciation for such excellent customer service that I’ve experienced by Polar Bear — you have won me as a customer!! THANK YOU! Keep up the excellent customer service!!! Looking forward to building a relationship with you as a new customer.

I am very pleased with the service that was provided by Polar Bear. I had an issue where the ac was not working at one of my rental properties after hours on a weekend. Rohan came all the way out to East End at 10pm and worked on the issue to get the system back up and running. He was very thorough and explained the issue in detail, and the measures I needed to take to prevent it from reoccurring. Excellent customer service
