Air Conditioner Maintenance Service – Beat the Summer Heat

The official start of summer is almost here and, if you haven’t done it already, it’s time to schedule your annual air conditioner maintenance service. Many people put this off until the last minute or skip it altogether, trying to avoid the cost. However, when your AC unit gives out just as the summer heat reaches its peak, you’ll realize what a wise investment annual maintenance service is. While a professional service technician examines your entire unit for worn out or damaged parts, one of their first concerns is the condition of your unit’s condenser.

The Air Conditioner Condenser

The condenser is the unit outside of your home. It is among the most vital parts of your AC unit. It is responsible for taking the heat from inside your home and putting it outside where it is less offensive.  If the condenser isn’t working properly, the heat and humidity will not be removed from your home. This will cause higher temperatures and higher humidity inside your home making you feel uncomfortable.  


Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance Service

Because the condenser is an exterior component of your AC system, it is subject to an increased level of dirt and debris. Over time, the buildup of dirt and debris can lead to a significant reduction in efficiency and even result in damage or failure to your air conditioning unit. In addition to improving the comfort of your home’s indoor environment by keeping it cool, annual air conditioner maintenance service provides other important benefits.

Increases Operational Efficiency

When the compressor coils get dirty, your unit’s efficiency is reduced. The reason for this is the compressor, which pumps the refrigerate through the condenser coils, has to work harder. The increased effort of the compressor introduces excessive heat into the AC unit. This can reduce the system’s cooling capacity by as much as 30 percent. 

Extends Lifespan

As you may have guessed, the increased workload on the compressor and many other components of your AC system can cause excessive wear and tear. This can result in your unit needing to be replaced sooner than would have normally been necessary. Regularly scheduled air conditioner maintenance service can reduce the need for costly repairs and significantly increase the lifespan of your AC system.

Improves Air Quality

Allowing dirt and debris to build up in your AC unit’s condenser not only impacts the comfort of your home indoor environment but it can also negatively impact your home’s air quality. Dirty Condenser coils create a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. These can enter your home through your AC system, reducing the air quality. This can be especially problematic if any of your family members have allergies or respiratory issues. 

Reduces Energy Costs

Air conditioner maintenance service can optimize your system’s performance while increasing its operational efficiency. This will decrease your energy consumption which reduces your energy costs. When you combine lower energy costs with fewer repairs and a longer life span, it’s easy to see why regular maintenance is a wise investment.
