Why Preventative Maintenance is Needed

Preventative maintenance for your air conditioner is important. You will want to make sure you contact us so we can inspect it. If you are not sure how often the system should be tuned up, contact us. We can advise you on a regular schedule so your HVAC system is working efficiently. Annual preventative maintenance enables your system to use energy more efficiently. System maintenance includes cleaning the cooling coils, blades and other components. Clean cooling coils generate cool air more efficiently. The system uses less energy to produce cool air, costing you less to operate the unit.

Extending the System’s Life

Regular maintenance will keep your system running well over its entire lifecycle. One of the main reasons that HVAC systems fail before the end of their estimated lifecycle is because of lack of maintenance. Maintain your system each year and your system will maintain your comfort for years to come.

Improves Air Quality

As you use your air conditioning system over the season, dirt and debris collect inside the cages and components of the unit. These can be released into the air inside your home, decreasing the quality of the indoor air. When you have routine maintenance performed, the technician cleans the dirt and debris so that the particulates do not pollute the indoor air.

Less Repairs

When you have your heating system and air conditioner regularly maintained, you reduce the chances that you will face a costly emergency repair in the future. We can check for damaged or worn parts and will notify you of any need for a part replacement. You can replace the part to prevent further damage and avoid a possible emergency call. Also cleaning and maintenance will also extend the life of your compressor. The compressor is a major component of the system and can be a very costly repair. With heavy use, dirt and film collect on the cleaning coils. Dirty cleaning coils cause the compressor to work harder to compress the refrigerant. By having the coils cleaned during annual air conditioner maintenance, you can reduce the demand on the compressor and avoid a major repair.
