Scheduling A Maintenance Visit For Your Air Conditioning Unit
Summer is just around the corner, and before the St. Louis warm and sticky heat kicks in, it is time to schedule your air conditioning maintenance check. Like your car, your air conditioning requires maintenance to prevent malfunctions and keeps everything running smoothly.
Why Air Conditioning Maintenance is Important
There are many benefits to having routine maintenance done on your air conditioner. It allows your air conditioner to run efficiently and helps save you time and money.
Decreases Your Utility Bills
When your air conditioner starts having issues, it works even harder, which in turn, causes your utility bills to rise. Routine checks prevent problems and save you money in the long run.
Extends Your Air Conditioner’s Lifespan
Just like regular checkups at the doctor’s office prevents health problems, getting routine professional checks on your air conditioner prolongs life expectancy and prevents serious issues. These checks are even more critical before summer because your air conditioner works even harder to run continuously and is at a higher risk of breaking down.
Prevents Costly and Unexpected Malfunctions
Minor issues can be detected and fixed during maintenance inspections, reducing the chances of any unexpected breakdowns. For example, you do not want your air conditioner to suddenly break during the summer and cause a costly emergency repair or replacement.
Produces Cleaner Air
According to EPA, most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, where some pollutants are higher inside than outside. Changing and cleaning your air filters is an easy way to help your air conditioner run better and improve air quality. We recommend changing your air filters every 1-3 months to ensure the best air quality.
The Best Time of Year To Service Your A/C
Your air conditioner works overtime during the summer, so it is essential to be proactive and schedule a maintenance check before the summer’s heat waves rise. We recommend scheduling an annual maintenance check in the spring or summer. This will prepare your air conditioner to work at a higher capacity and prevent emergency breakdowns before temperatures start rising.
Also, having someone inspect and clean your filters during the spring and summer seasons reduces the dust, pollen, and allergens circulating throughout your house. Being proactive will save you time, money, and stress during the summer.
After Your Visit
Cleaning and changing your filters are the easiest way to keep your air conditioner running efficiently. Although it might seem oversimplified, cleaning your filters and evaporator coil can improve your air conditioner’s energy consumption from 5 to 15 percent.
We also recommend keeping your air conditioner at a consistent temperature. Continuously fluctuating your thermostat forces your system to work harder and will cost you more in the long run. Set or program your thermostat throughout the summer to ensure your home is comfortable and your system performs efficiently.
