Air Conditioner Service – An Important Task to Add to Spring Cleaning
When tackling the task of spring cleaning, many people never think to include maintenance checkups and service on major appliances like their air conditioning units. The heat of summer is just around the corner. It’s a good idea to include air conditioner service on your spring cleaning list. In addition to helping you avoid a warm weather breakdown, regular air conditioner service also provides other benefits.
There’s nothing worse than switching your air conditioner on for the first time of the season only to find out it’s broken. Perhaps the only thing worse would be having it fail on the hottest day of the year. Waiting until your unit fails rather than scheduling preseason air conditioning service will not only be inconvenient, it can be costly.
Emergency repairs are typically more expensive than regularly scheduled service. In addition, summer is the busy season for air conditioner service technicians. You may end up sweating it out longer than you like. This type of situation can be dangerous as well as uncomfortable. Scheduling service to make sure your air conditioning unit is in good condition before the weather heats up will help keep you comfortable and safe.
Increased Energy Efficiency
To perform at its peak, your air conditioner, just like any mechanical device, needs to be regularly cleaned and maintained. The dirt and dust that accumulates in your air conditioner may not cause a breakdown, but it will impact its efficiency. During those hot summer months, an air conditioner that isn’t operating at full capacity won’t keep your home cool enough and will increase your energy bills. Why pay more and get less?
During regularly scheduled air conditioner service, a certified technician will clean and check the condenser coils, evaporator, condensate pan and the drain pipe, as well as lubricate the fans and blowers. This will keep your air conditioning unit working properly and efficiently.
Better Air Quality
Your air conditioner’s filters will also be replaced during servicing. This will improve your home’s air quality. In addition to slowing down airflow, dirty filters spread dust, pet dander, allergens, and other pollutants through the air. Having your air conditioning unit serviced regularly can help keep your home and family healthy.
The average lifespan of an air conditioner is usually about 10 to 15 years. This can be significantly shorter if routine air conditioner service is neglected. Sporadic maintenance or skipping it completely can decrease the life of an air conditioner by as much as half.
An air conditioning system is one of the larger investments in your home and you want to make it last as long as possible. Regular maintenance can will not only extend the life of your air conditioner, it can also uncover and correct internal issues before they cause your air conditioner to malfunction.
Beat the Heat
Your air conditioning unit should be serviced at least once a year and spring is the perfect time to have it done. It can help you avoid warm weather breakdowns, keeping your family comfortable and safe. This applies to business air conditioning systems as well. A broken air conditioner in a place of business can reduce productivity or negatively impact sales.
