Is It Too Late for Air Conditioning Maintenance?

No matter what type of air conditioning system you have—a central unit, ductless system, heat pump—you want to make sure that it has the ability to cool your home efficiently and effectively, even as we near the end of summer. With temperatures still keeping us pretty warm, your air conditioner needs all the help you can give it. Therefore if you haven’t scheduled preventive maintenance in the last year, now is the time to do so. It’s never too late! But why is AC maintenance so essential?

Maintenance Keeps Your System Clean

There is no cooling system on the market that can perform well if it’s covered in dirt, dust, and other debris. During your maintenance appointment, our HVAC technicians will thoroughly clean each component of your AC system, including the coils and motors. Clearing debris away from your outside condenser unit is also a good idea, as to prevent any obstructions to airflow.

Refrigerant Levels Must Be Checked

Many homeowners don’t realize the importance of their system’s refrigerant. This combination of fluids is what makes the cooling power of your air conditioner possible. Your HVAC system is supplied with enough refrigerant upon installation to last its lifetime. However, the refrigerant line can become damaged and experience leaks, therefore compromising your cooling system. During maintenance we will check to ensure this is not the case.

You Will Save Money

Regular air conditioning maintenance is the leading way to reduce your cooling costs. The bills you pay are going to be higher during the summer months, however they don’t have to be astronomical. Maintenance helps your system perform more efficiently, therefore cutting down on your costs. Maintenance is cost-effective, and an easy way to make sure your air conditioner lasts as long as it can for the years to come.
