Why its important that your AC unit is level

Real estate isn’t the only thing where location matters most. Turns out, the location and positioning of your AC unit makes a world of difference when it comes to both the performance and longevity of the unit.

Although most professional installers will take care to ensure the unit is precisely level when installed, over time, shifting of the ground, cracking or sinking of the cement base, erosion and more can cause the unit to become unlevel. If you live in or around Brevard County, Melbourne FL, Cocoa FL, Merritt Island FL, Cocoa Beach FL, Cape Canaveral FL, Rockledge FL, read on to find out why keeping your AC unit level is so important.

Why is this a big deal?

  1. Compressor Performance: The compressor motor requires oil to keep things running smoothly. However, it does not have an oil pump to keep things evenly lubricated. Uneven surfaces means an unequal distribution of oil, causing excessive wear to one side of the engine.
  2. Balance: Uneven surfaces can cause the unit to sink in one corner, potentially dislodging coolant lines and causing damage to the unit.
  3. Damage: Uneven surfaces cause significant vibration of the unit when in use. This vibration against a hard foundation can cause serious wear and damage over time.
