In Neptune Beach, Florida, you rely on your air conditioner to run properly in the hot and humid summer months. With regular maintenance, you can expect your system to run efficiently, improve air quality and help you avoid costly repairs for a long time. Read on to learn more about these three benefits of regular maintenance for your air conditioner.
Increase Energy Savings
During your semi-annual maintenance visit, a certified professional we will assess all the parts of your air conditioner to make sure they’re running properly. Checking the fan motors, compressors, condensers, and air filters will reveal any problems that cut down on efficiency and drive your bills up higher. As a result, you can maximize every energy dollar you spend to cool your home this spring and summer.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Air conditioners use filters to keep dust, pollen and pet fur from circulating through your house. These filters can be disposable or washable. Whatever kind of filter you have, it’s a good idea to change it frequently. A clogged filter blocks airflow and forces the unit to work harder. And once it clogs, it can’t properly catch the particles in the air. As a result, you experience worse air quality in your home.
Avoid Costly Repairs
If a professional catches a problem with your air conditioner early, you can avoid experiencing an emergency repair. For example, if something is wrong with the fan on your outdoor unit but you haven’t noticed, it might burn itself out and force you to replace it. But if a maintenance visit reveals a preventative repair, you’ll save money and avoid any downtime. In the summer, that peace of mind is priceless.
Similarly, your condenser and compressor need to be clean to function properly and efficiently. If either one gets coated in dirt, dust or debris, they need to be cleaned by a professional who can work with care and precision. Cleaning your condenser and compressor consistently means you’ll never face a serious case of build-up.
