Having your air conditioning serviced twice a year can make it much less likely that your AC will break down. It’s also a great way to ensure that it is working at peak efficiency and avoiding costly repairs down the road.
Often, the first sign that an air conditioner is in need of repair is when it doesn’t cool as well or as effectively as it used to. This could be because there is a problem with the air filter or the unit itself. The technician will check and adjust the system to determine what is causing the problem, so that it doesn’t happen again.
The technician will also check and clean the condensate drain line to ensure that it isn’t clogged with dust and other particles. The lack of a clean condensate drain can cause water leaks and other problems.
Your air conditioning system has many parts that need to work together properly for it to produce the cool, comfortable air you need. When any of these components is not functioning correctly, it can cause a huge problem for you.
For example, if the air filter isn’t cleaned regularly and the unit is left running without a filter, it will start to collect dirt and other debris that can eventually cause serious damage.
When a clean air filter is replaced, it allows the unit to run more efficiently and produces fewer emissions. It also ensures that the air in your home is cleaner, which will help improve your indoor health and wellness.
It’s a good idea to change the air filter at least once a month, but the frequency of changes is dependent on how much use your system gets. A dirty filter will not only cause your system to work harder than it should, but it will also reduce its efficiency and lifespan.
Another thing to keep in mind is that your system should be cleaned and lubricated regularly. The lack of lubrication can cause friction, which will ultimately lead to the breakdown of components.
During a routine service, the technician will clean and inspect all of your HVAC equipment. This will include the compressor, evaporator coil, condenser coil, fan, blower motor, and any other part that may be needing maintenance or repair.
The technician will then perform any needed adjustments or repair to get your unit working again as smoothly and efficiently as possible. They will also test the system’s coolant level and verify that it is at the correct level.
Most modern air conditioners have built-in sensors that will shut down your unit if it isn’t operating correctly. This helps prevent unnecessary damage to vital AC system parts like the compressor and evaporator coil.
When your system isn’t functioning properly, it can be difficult to know what to do. If you aren’t sure what to do, call a qualified service technician as soon as possible so they can address the problem before it worsens.
