Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance

It’s easy to put off annual tune-ups, but we highly recommend making it a priority every spring. Here’s how cooling maintenance from Andreas can benefit you:

  • Save on utility bills: Preventive maintenance reduces cooling costs by helping your equipment run at maximum efficiency.
  • Benefit the environment: Lower energy consumption is also good news for the environment since you can keep your home comfortable while reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Reduce inconvenient breakdowns: Our experienced technicians can detect and repair newly developing issues during a tune-up. This way, you’re less likely to face a sudden system failure in the middle of the season.
  • Extend your equipment’s life span: When you invest in an HVAC system, you want it to last as long as possible. Maintenance can help you put off AC replacement for years, saving you money and reducing waste in the process.
  • Improve home comfort and air quality: Air conditioner maintenance helps every component run more smoothly. As a result, you can expect better humidity control and more even temperatures from room to room for enhanced comfort and indoor air quality.
  • Peace of mind: When you service your equipment regularly, you know it’s running safely and efficiently. This lets you enjoy home comfort with no reservations.

Spring AC Maintenance for Efficient Summers

There’s no better time for most homeowners to schedule their annual air conditioner or heat pump maintenance than the spring, when temperatures start to rise but aren’t yet as intense as they’re going to become. It’s an easy time to schedule maintenance, since our team won’t yet be as busy as we get during the summer — and it’s the most beneficial for your wallet, too.

A professional tune-up of your air conditioner serves to reset the clock somewhat on wear and tear, meaning that in the months immediately following maintenance, you’re at the lowest risk of wasted energy, breakdowns, and poor performance — and it makes sense to have that time period overlap with the hottest days of the year!

During our tune-up, we’ll inspect your system and assess its performance, correct anything minor that’s wrong like loose connections and dirty or unlubricated components, identify significant problems that warrant repairs.

Of course, professional maintenance is only part of the process of keeping your HVAC systems operating at peak performance throughout the year. Be sure to check out our spring HVAC maintenance checklist for tips on keeping your systems in top condition!

FAQs About Air Conditioner Maintenance

How often should you service your air conditioner?

Air conditioners need to be serviced once a year, preferably before summer. Annual tune-ups can’t make up for shoddy upkeep habits, though, so make sure you give your unit plenty of loving care in between maintenance.  If you use your AC often, you’ll need to change your air filter every three months. That number needs to be pushed up to monthly if you have pets who shed or produce dander, or if your family members are prone to allergies.

What’s included in AC maintenance?

Routine servicing cleans out your unit, checks the health of each part, and replaces refrigerants. Our licensed technicians will also:

  • Make sure your thermostat is performing as it should. We’ll recalibrate it if necessary.
  • Tighten your connections to avoid electrical accidents.
  • Add lubricant so that your moving parts don’t sustain friction damage.
  • Clear your condensate line so that it drains adequately and doesn’t collect harmful debris.
  • Make sure your system is cycling efficiently and safely.
  • Clean or replace your filter so that your unit doesn’t blow harmful allergens into your air.
  • Make sure your blower motor’s amperage and voltage are optimal.

Is it really necessary to service your AC every year?

Annual maintenance adds significantly to the life span of your unit. Without it, your filters will become clogged with debris and allergens, which have a marked effect on your health. Your condenser can form a blockage, which could cause total burnout. The condenser is one of your AC’s most expensive replacement parts, so lack of maintenance can become expensive. That skyrocketing price may also include heavy energy costs. Routine maintenance keeps your utility bills down by encouraging efficient cycling and reducing overheating. A system that hasn’t been serviced regularly steadily loses its cooling powers before sustaining permanent breakages. The more severe the breakage, the more expensive it is to repair. For that reason, it’s cheaper to perform routine maintenance than to leave your unit unattended.
