Park Hill: Why is Air Conditioner Maintenance Vital for Homeowners?

When it comes to air conditioner maintenance, it appears some homeowners graduated from the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” school. Don’t wait until your unit starts banging, buzzing or bubbling to call an experienced HVAC technician for preventative maintenance.

Electric bills can skyrocket during summer. Every year your air conditioner goes without maintenance, it will pull more power and your electric bill will keep climbing. A clean unit operates with greater efficiency, resulting in lower electric bills.

Fewer Repairs

Keeping current with regular air conditioner maintenance means fewer breakdowns, translating to fewer repairs. When temperatures are off the chart hot, your A/C must work harder, increasing the probability factor of its breaking down.

Save on Replacement Parts

The compressor is a key component of your HVAC. It is not cheap. Outdoor coils collect dirt and debris, which makes the compressor exert more effort. Cleaning outdoor coils is part of routine preventative maintenance. A clean unit operates more efficiently and helps you avert a costly repair.

Healthier Air Quality

Not only must your air conditioner work harder when it isn’t clean, particles of dust and pollen accumulate inside the HVAC and pollute indoor air. In addition, bacteria and mold can grow on a dirty A/C unit, which contributes to allergy and respiratory problems.

Freon Levels

As a rule, your A/C won’t need added coolant, because it is recycled. However, you should ensure your technician checks the Freon levels annually. If it is low on coolant, there is a potential leak. Professionals have top of the line equipment that is necessary for locating the leak and fixing it.

If this problem is ignored, your system will overheat and the expensive compressor will crash.

Now, can you appreciate the money-saving potentials in regularly scheduled air conditioner maintenance?
