You know you’ve done it – procrastinate on household maintenance because it just seems like an unnecessary effort and cost. A common victim on the homeowner’s procrastination list is often AC maintenance. I mean, if it’s not broke why fix it, right? WRONG! The last thing you need is to be without an air conditioner when summer hits in full force.
Air conditioners do more than just cool the air in your home. AC units also ensure that there are no unnecessary particles or debris in the air by filtering out and removing dust particles, odors, and even mites. In some cases, depending on how new your unit is, your AC may automatically adjust the temperature if it “recognizes” that the temperature in the household is becoming too cold or if it is dropping below your set preference.
If you’re not maintaining your air conditioner because you feel that the money is better spent elsewhere, you need to remember that the cost of a brand-new AC unit will definitely put a dent in your budget. Preventative maintenance is crucial to the longevity of your air conditioner.
While some companies recommend regular maintenance at least once a year, at Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric we believe it’s important to do maintenance more regularly than that. If your AC is constantly running, it’s accumulating a lot of dust and debris in areas that need to be regularly maintained. There are some things you can do yourself, but it is advised that you have a professional technician replace your condenser coils.
Maintenance ensures that your unit is performing in peak condition. There are benefits to having a licensed professional stop by twice a year to do a service, inspection and deep clean of your air conditioner:
Aside from the fact that if you don’t maintain your AC unit it will breakdown from neglect, you will also be left without reprieve from hot summer climates while it gets replaced. And trust us, no homeowner wants to be in Florida without an air conditioner.
There are a number of things that will be checked and kept in working order with AC maintenance:
