When’s the best time to schedule air conditioning maintenance? Right now! Don’t wait until a part of your AC fails before you call an air conditioning technician to look at your system. Here are some of the ways scheduling once a year maintenance can improve your summer:
- Reducing the risk of sudden breakdowns.
- Avoiding a costly premature replacement.
- Preventing the need for expensive repairs.
- Reducing seasonal energy bills.
- Improving the performance of your AC.
Once a year, an air conditioning technician should come to your home to inspect, clean, and adjust some of the components of your air conditioning unit. This is the best way to reduce the risk of a malfunctioning AC this summer. During inspection, the technician will look for any issues that may diminish the performance of your system. If your air conditioner is at risk for any possible issues that may cause you to seek repair in the near future, the technician will recommend the proper services.
Sometimes, the only thing preventing your system from running as efficiently as it should is dirt and dust. A dirty evaporator or condenser coil can prevent your system from cooling your home correctly, while dirty air filters can affect air quality and block the airflow in your system, causing any number of problems with your AC. Scheduling maintenance can give you peace of mind in knowing that your unit will not fail due to a very preventable problem.
The technician will also check for anything in your system that may need to be adjusted. The motors that run the compressor and the fans, for example, often need lubrication to continue running smoothly. The refrigerant in your system may also require an adjustment, as even a slight loss of refrigerant could mean your air conditioning is not cooling your home very efficiently, and only a technician is qualified to handle this fluid.
If you schedule air conditioning maintenance now, you can rest easy knowing your air conditioner isn’t as likely to give you trouble for the rest of the summer.
