To keep your ductless or central air cooling system working safely and efficiently, all manufacturers recommend an annual safety check, cleaning, and tune-up. Annual inspections and professional cleanings ensure your air conditioning system is running properly, can prevent unexpected problems in the future, and provide peace of mind for you and your family.
Benefits of Annual Air Conditioning System Maintenance:
1. Lower Utility Bills
An air conditioner’s filters, coils, and fins require regular professional maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its lifetime. Delaying or foregoing necessary AC maintenance will cause a perpetual decline in air conditioning performance and increase your energy costs.
2. Safety First
The air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over their years of service. Without annual cleaning and filter replacement, a dirty coil will reduce airflow and the ability of the coil to absorb heat. Your local HVAC contractor will also check and clean condensate drains which may be clogged, check and test for refrigerant leaks and dispose of excess refrigerant properly, correct and adjust your coil fins, and confirm the accuracy of your thermostat.
3. Fewer Repairs
Having your ductless or central air conditioning system maintained every year allows your contractor to check and repair any problems before they become BIG problems. By preventing larger, more expensive repairs, annual cooling system maintenance pays for itself.
4. Extend the life of your air conditioning equipment
Air conditioning systems operate most efficiently when they are regularly maintained. An annual tune-up can extend the life of your ductless or central AC system by as much as 25% which can translate into 5+ years of additional usage.
Dirt is the biggest enemy of your home’s heating and air conditioning system. It can waste fuel which reduces the energy efficiency of your ductless or central air conditioning system. Having your cooling system professionally cleaned is one of the most important parts of regular air conditioner maintenance.
