Air conditioner maintenance is a must if you want your home comfortable all summer. Statistics show that without at least yearly maintenance, repair calls are more frequent for your AC. We would like to give you a few suggestions to help you better understand why maintenance is such a priority…
Regular Maintenance Is Less Costly Than Repairs
We can’t guarantee that your air conditioner will break down if you skip your tune up this time, but if you air conditioner does malfunction, you can bet that the repair will cost more than a tune up would have. Tune ups can’t stop all AC problems from happening, but 50% of cooling problems can be prevented by maintenance. During a tune up, your technician can detect small problems and fix them before they become big problems. You will have saved yourself the higher cost – and the bigger hassle – of a repair service call down the road. A poorly maintained air conditioner may limp along for awhile. It may even do a decent job of cooling, but it will be costing you more in energy efficiency.
How Your Yearly Maintenance Can Keep Your Home More Comfortable
Over time dust and debris collects on the coils. The evaporator coils, being indoors, attract dust. But the outdoor condenser coils can become full of dirt, grass trimmings and even leaves. This build-up interferes with airflow and your air conditioner won’t be able to cool your home as efficiently. Also if your condensation drain has a clog it can keep your system from controlling the humidity in your home. Motor parts need lubrication. Lack of lubrication can cause friction which reduces operating efficiency. Blower components need periodic cleaning and adjustment or they can cause airflow problems which can result in efficiency loss. All of this could cost you more for less comfort.
A Well-Maintained Air Conditioner Lasts Longer Than One That Isn’t.
Most central air conditioning systems only have a lifespan of 10-15 years, and replacing them can be a very costly affair. Taking the right action today can help you extend your AC’s lifespan, sometimes by up to another 15 years! In addition to the tips listed above, use ceiling fans and programmable thermostats to reduce the load on your AC, and turn it off on cooler days.
Why Should You Leave AC Tune-Up to the Professionals?
Because air conditioners contain environmentally hazardous refrigerants and have delicate components, it can save you time, money, and headaches to have a professional evaluate your AC for potential problems and perform regular maintenance. Wouldn’t you rather spend your free time doing something you want to do? Also, you won’t have to worry about accidentally breaking or ruining your warranty on your AC while you’re trying to service it.
