Our goal is to make sure you’re comfortable in your home or business. However, many don’t realize that a huge part of ensuring you stay comfortable is scheudling preventative maintenance visits from a certified HVAC technician. Your air conditioning system requires regular maintenance to continue operating at optimal levels, just like your car.
These visits have many benefits, including:
Your heating and air conditioning systems, no matter the make or model, should receive preventative maintenance at least once per year to ensure the highest operating efficiencies, lower utility bills, and reduced risk of serious, costly repairs or replacement parts.
Typically, you’ll want to service your air conditioning system in early spring before the temperatures start to increase, but maintenance in the middle of the spring or summer will only help enhance the performance of your HVAC system.
When your air filter gets too dirty, it forces your A/C to work much harder than necessary. This overworking causes your air conditioning system to use more energy, which increases your utility bills.
A clogged air filter can also cause the air conditioner to overheat, leading to a complete system failure.
Because the air filter is so dirty, that means the air passing through your home is dirty as well. So, the air you and your family are breathing in your home can be full of dust, pollen, dander, and other airborne particulates.
When evaporator coils are left to gather dust and dirt, the grime that builds up makes it more difficult for the coils to transfer heat. This means the air conditioner has to work harder, utilizing more energy and placing more stress on important parts of the system.
Increased stress on these parts causes them to wear out sooner, which means they will need to be replaced.
Dirty coils also corrode which can lead to refrigerant leaks.
The condenser is the large metal cube that sits outside of your home. When it comes to air conditioning, the condenser is where most of the work cooling your home takes place. Components of a condenser include the refrigerant, compressor, condenser coil, electromagnet, fan, capacitor, relay switches, and more.
The practice of checking the condenser during maintenance visits allows a technician to catch any problems early on. Issues with condensers can worsen, and lead to mroe complex issues within the system that cause a total breakdown.
During preventative maintenance visits, your technician will check your condenser for these elements:
