If you haven’t already added AC maintenance to your to-do list this season, you will by the end of this blog!
What Happens During an AC Maintenance Appointment?
When performing AC maintenance, your technician is sure to examine every component of your system, run a full safety and performance test, and identify areas for improvement. This allows you to take care of any problem areas before they cause major damage to your system.
Additional maintenance tasks include:
- Changing out the filter
- Lubricating motor parts
- Tightening loose electrical connections
- Cleaning dirty parts
- Checking refrigerant levels
- Testing the thermostat
Key Benefits of Regular AC Maintenance
Routine maintenance is the key to a healthy, lasting air conditioner. And, by scheduling maintenance during spring, you can ensure your system is completely ready to beat the summer heat and keep your family cool all season long.
Additional benefits of AC maintenance include:
- Significantly reduces the risk of breakdowns and repairs
- Helps your system maintain peak energy efficiency
- Keeps airflow strong and consistent
- Extends the lifespan of your system
- Protects your manufacturer’s warranty
- Keeps your home cool and comfortable
- Improves the safety and performance of your system
Other Ways You Can Take Care of Your AC
In addition to annual springtime AC maintenance, there are a few things you can do to take care of your AC during the year. Experts recommend leaving all of your air registers open, routinely clearing away any debris or yard tools blocking your outside AC unit, changing your air filter every 1-3 months, and never putting off repairs. Ignoring problems with your system, even if they appear to be minor, can cause extensive damage to your system.
Signs you need AC repair include:
- There was an unexpected spike in your utility bills
- Your AC cycles on and off constantly
- You have to adjust your thermostat all the time
- Certain rooms are much cooler than others
- Your home is always dusty after running the AC
- Your AC is making strange noises
- There are odd smells coming from your air registers
- Your home is too humid
- Water is leaking from the outside unit
- Your AC is blowing warm air
What Happens When You Don’t Maintain Your System?
Still thinking about skipping out on maintenance this year? Think again. Every year that you skip annual maintenance, your AC drops in efficiency by 5% or more. That means that your AC will have to work harder and longer to try and cool your home, resulting in extremely high utility bills. In addition, improper maintenance is the leading cause of premature AC failure. Simply put, skipping out on maintenance will cost you more money and make your home less comfortable.
