Caring for Your Air Conditioner: How it Benefits You

Technician working on AC unitLast week, we went over some steps on how you can start preparing your air conditioner for summer. With warmer weather already upon us, it’s important to tackle any air conditioning repair and service needs now. And if you haven’t already scheduled your professional Peachtree City, GA AC maintenance appointment, there’s no time like the present!

Remember, though, that only a professional HVAC technician should be trusted to handle the numerous tasks involved with maintenance, like inspecting your motors and electrical connections, and cleaning the coils and moving parts in your cooling system. Scheduling this service once a year—twice a year if you have a heat pump—is essential to making sure it lasts as long as it’s meant to.

The Advantages of Caring for Your Air Conditioner

The most common question that people ask about air conditioning maintenance is if it really needs to be done on such a routine basis. Maintenance is not a luxury—instead, it is a necessity to ensure that the system functions properly and efficiently.

There are a number of benefits to keeping up with your professional maintenance, including, but not limited to:

  • A Reliable Cooling System: Arguably the biggest benefit of keeping up on your air conditioning maintenance is that your cooling system will be less likely to suffer a major malfunction over the summer—when you need it the most. During a system inspection, our HVAC professionals locate areas where wear and tear can easily leak to breakdowns. We also make appropriate adjustments and clean all the inside components to make sure that your AC system works reliably.
  • Energy Efficiency: The accumulation of wear-and-tear on your cooling system creates a strain on the components, particularly the blower motor. This causes your energy bills to increase since your system tries to overcompensate for the stress. If you keep up on annual, or biannual, maintenance, however, then your system can easily retain up to 95% of its efficiency rating.
  • Longer Lifespan: Most air conditioning systems last between 10-15 years before they need to be replaced. But this is only the case if your system is professionally maintained on a regular basis. Regular inspections and tune-ups will help your AC give you the best ROI by helping it last as long as possible.
  • Fewer Repairs: Approximately 85% of the repairs that an air conditioner might need during its service life are preventable thanks to regular maintenance. This is because these tune-ups help our professionals spot problems early on, and taking care of them right away means you’re less likely to face costlier repair issues later on.

When you invest in air conditioning maintenance with our team, you can count on reliable services that include checking and tightening connections, testing safety controls, lubricating motor bearings, and other moving parts, testing the system to ensure proper airflow, checking for refrigerant leaks, and more.
