You’re probably not thinking too much about your air conditioning system right now. But you will want to make sure it’s ready to work when the temperatures get too hot. If your system seems to be working okay, you may think it doesn’t need to be serviced, but it should be. Working okay isn’t good enough. It might not be working as efficiently as it could be, costing you more money that needed every month and wearing out faster than you’d like it too. Maintenance is the best way to prevent problems. It’s always easier to repair small issue than it is to replace the whole unit.
Central Air Conditioner Maintenance Checklist
You may be wondering what AC maintenance is all about? Having maintenance performed on you air conditioning unit allows a trained technician to thoroughly clean and inspect all the components and make sure everything is working as efficiently as possible. All the components of the cooling system will also be inspected. You will be informed of any adjustments that need to be made as well as any repairs or replacements. Maintenance, in a nut shell, improves the longevity and performance of your air conditioner. Air conditioners are a pricey replacement and the importance of maintenance can’t be understated.
How Often Should I Service My Air Conditioner?
Your AC system should have maintenance done right before you expect to be using it the most. That means now. Spring is the time to have it done but it will depend on where you live and how quickly the temperatures will soar. It’s always better to be prepared. How frequently you have your system maintenance done might not be as important as when you have it done. Maintenance should be done at least once a year. A heat pump system cooling and heating your home should have maintenance done twice a year because it does double the work that a conventional HVAC system does.
Benefits of HVAC Preventive Maintenance
Not only does regular maintenance improve efficiency and longevity, it also improves the comfort and safety within your home. As time goes on the efficiency and effectiveness of your AC system decrease. Like any system in your home, the components will start to wear down. While air conditioners aren’t really dangerous, there are components that can be harmful if you try and maintain or repair your system yourself. The refrigerant that the system uses to cool your home can leak and cause serious injury. When you call professionals to service your system you can be sure everything will be done correctly and safely.
