Importance of air conditioner maintenance

Over the years, I’ve learned the importance of properly maintaining essential household systems.

Draining the water heater every year works to minimize the buildup of sediment and increase the unit’s lifespan.

Cleaning the lint trap of the drier prior to every load and scheduling professional dryer vent cleaning annually is essential to safety and the effectiveness of the appliance. Air conditioner maintenance is the key to extending the life of the cooling system. Professional AC upkeep provides a whole long list of benefits. The air conditioner directly affects the home’s indoor air quality. Without a professional cleaning of the inner workings, the system can’t effectively filter air and can even spread contaminants into the breathing air. While I make sure to replace the air filter every couple of months, it takes a licensed professional to clean the coils, condensate drain and various concealed components. If there is a buildup of debris inside the air conditioner, loosened wires, a minor refrigerant leak or any issues with operation, the cooling system won’t live up to expectations for cooling capacity or energy efficiency. To keep my electric bills as low as possible, I schedule tune-ups every spring. Having a licensed technician provide service fulfills the stipulations of the manufacturer’s warranty, extends equipment lifespan and increases reliability. I can be sure the air conditioner is running at its best and ready to handle the summer workload. The heat and humidity in my local area keep the AC working round-the-clock for months at a time. Due to wear and tear, parts can wear out and result in repairs or even the need to replace the whole system. Malfunctions such as broken fan blades, failed compressor, improper electrical connections or a clogged condensate drain can easily lead to major disruption. With yearly inspection, the technicians identify concerns and resolve them.
