We recommend that you have your A/C system professionally inspected and maintained at least once a year. The best time to do this is in the spring, before the hot days arrive, when you need your air conditioning system to cool your house. This way you know that you can rely on your home to be cool all summer long.
Why Maintenance is Important
Throughout the year, dust and dirt accumulate on the air conditioner, not only when it is not running during the winter and cooler months, but also while it is running during the summer. It may not seem like a big deal, but dust has a way of seeping into the system through tiny cracks and crevices. Additionally, dust that has bypassed the air filters in the ducts accumulates in the system as well. This gradual accumulation of dust in the A/C system can end up creating a lot of problems with the cooling process and the overall efficiency of the system.
As dust builds up in the air conditioning system, parts break down faster than they should, which can lead to costly repairs. Also, the life of your system decreases as well, which means you will have to replace your A/C unit sooner.
As you would expect, this can be quite costly. One of the best ways to prevent this from happening is to have your A/C system thoroughly inspected by trained professionals.
Regular maintenance of your air-conditioning system also keeps the efficiency of your system in top order. One of the best things you can do yourself to keep your system working well is to regularly replace the air filters. When they get dirty and clogged, the efficiency of the system is noticeably reduced, which means that your air conditioner has to run more often and longer.
Consequently, your cooling costs go up. However,even if you change your filters regularly, you still need to have your entire A/C system professionally inspected to make sure every component is working as it should. Our trained technicians can clean and check components that you can’t reach or see. The average life span of an air conditioning system is around 15 years and routine maintenance by our expert technicians can help you get the most out of your system.
What routine maintenance of your A/C system consists of:
- Inspect and clean the condenser coils
