Temperatures have been on the cooler side in recent weeks, but we are all well aware of how quickly spring and summer bring with them stifling hot weather. Is your air conditioner ready? This is the perfect time of the year to arrange for your AC system’s annual maintenance to ensure that it is, in fact, ready.
There are a few Austin, TX AC maintenance tasks you can do on your own. This includes changing the air filter every 1 to 3 months. But full maintenance that makes an actual difference in the performance or your air conditioner needs to be left to the pros.
Only an experienced and trained HVAC technician will know how to manage the numerous tasks associated with an AC tune-up, such as inspecting motors and electrical components, and cleaning moving parts as well as coils. You can rely on our team to provide you with comprehensive maintenance. But what are the benefits?
The Advantages of Yearly Maintenance
One of the most common questions we receive in regards to air conditioner maintenance is just how important it is to have maintenance done once a year. When it comes to timing, we recommend AC maintenance be done in the spring or even before, since this is prior to its period of heaviest use.
But more important than when you have maintenance done is how often you have it done. Maintenance is not a luxury. It is a preventive measure you take to ensure the efficiency, longevity, and functionality of your air conditioning system. Skipping this service puts you at a higher risk of operational problems and potential AC breakdown.
We’ve listed below a few of the biggest advantages of AC maintenance. It’s worth noting that these benefits apply to heating system and heat pump maintenance as well.
Your Air Conditioner Will Work More Reliably
The most immediate advantage of annual air conditioner maintenance is a cooling system that’s less likely to suffer a huge operational failure over the summer. Thorough system inspections by our professionals uncover places where strain on the system can lead to breakdowns.
Adjustments and cleanings remove potential air conditioning system problems. When your AC system is well-maintained, you can enter spring and summer with the peace of mind that you probably won’t need to schedule any AC emergency repair services.
Your Cooling System Will Work More Efficiently
The build-up of wear and tear on your AC system creates more strain on the components within. This is particularly true for the blower motor. This results in higher energy bills, as the system tries to overcome the extra strain. If your AC has annual maintenance done, however, it should retain 95% of its efficiency rating during its service life.
Your AC System Will Last Longer
We mentioned longevity above. Your air conditioner should last between 10 to 15 years before it requires a replacement. However, this is only possible if the system has routine professional maintenance done on it. Annual inspections and tune-ups will help your AC system give you the best return on your initial investment since it will last as long as possible.
