Summer is in full swing here in the Lower Mainland, meaning hot days are ahead for the next few months. Imagine it’s a 30-degree day, you’ve just got home from work ready to cool off with your air conditioner, and then suddenly, it starts to blow hot air! Not ideal, right? We’re going to talk about the importance of regular air conditioning maintenance so that you can stay cool all summer long.
We recommend getting your air conditioner serviced at least once a year. Plus, annual maintenance is a bill you can budget and prepare for – unlike unexpected breakdowns or surprise issues, which usually cost you for more time and money. Regular maintenance will make your air conditioner more energy efficient and reliable, provide a longer lifespan, keep your air cleaner, and save you money.
Benefits of Regular Air Conditioning Maintenance
- Energy Efficiency and Reliability
- Longer Lifespan
- Improved Air Quality
- Cost savings
Energy Efficiency and Reliability
Without maintenance and with frequent use, air conditioners can get dirty. Over time, as dirt builds up, an air conditioner’s filter can become clogged. These situations can affect how well your air conditioning system operates and how much energy it uses. Regular tune-ups will keep your air conditioner running smoothly. Aside from efficiency, those tune-ups will also make your system more reliable. During maintenance, every working piece of your cooling system is checked and adjusted for maximum function. Giving you peace of mind that your unit is functioning correctly.
An air conditioning system is a significant investment for any homeowner; naturally, you want it to last as long as possible. Typically, air conditioners can last 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance and care. Annual maintenance plays a pivotal role in extending the lifespan of your air conditioner unit. By keeping the system clean and well-maintained, you can minimize wear and tear on its components. Any of our HVAC technicians will check for signs of deterioration, replace worn-out parts, and address potential problems before they become an issue.
Improved Air Quality
Air conditioners provide cool air and play a part in maintaining indoor air quality. Over time, dirt, dust, pollen, and other allergens can accumulate within the system and pollute the air you breathe. If you don’t properly maintain your AC unit, these contaminants may circulate throughout your indoor space, decreasing the air quality in your home. Regular maintenance includes cleaning, filter replacements, and debris removal, which ensure proper airflow to your home.
Without proper maintenance and care, your AC system can experience many issues. The most common ones are decreased cooling efficiency, compressor failure, refrigerant leaks, electrical problems, poor air quality, and noisy operation. Dealing with these issues can be stressful, time-consuming, and costly. Regular maintenance is going to save you from any significant or expensive repairs. During maintenance, you and your HVAC technician can address any minor issues immediately, saving you the hassle of a bigger problem in the future.
