As a homeowner, you know that there are just some things which are essential. One of those main items is an air conditioning unit. Decades ago, people somehow managed to live without air conditioning, but now it’s one of the first things homeowners, renters, and even guests ask about. AC units work hard and behind the scenes to keep your home cool and circulating fresh air. However, when the unit is compromised for any reason, it could be detrimental to your health and hit your pockets hard. Here are 4 reasons why yearly AC maintenance during the springtime is crucial.
Enhanced Air Quality
Clean air is important for all. However, individuals who suffer with allergies are more susceptible to severe conditions when clean air is compromised. When AC filters in the home get clogged with dust and dirt, allergens and other particles enter the home and often cause breathing problems. Most people with seasonal allergies begin to notice problems with the quality of air during springtime.
Your cooling needs vary from day to day, and because of this your HVAC unit needs to be able to adjust to deliver air the best temperature. AC units with condenser failure, dirty evaporator coils, worn out thermostats, leaks, and dirt will not function properly. The unit will not be able to cool your home, causing the system to work overtime and possibly fail. It is best to recognize the problems early to avoid a system failure in the middle of summertime.
Lower Energy Costs
An air conditioning unit that is not functioning at its best works extremely hard. When this happens, the system is put at risk to overheat and ultimately fail, but it also can cause your energy bill to skyrocket. To keep this from happening, yearly maintenance is crucial. Technicians will check the unit for problems and fix the things that need prompt attention. The goal is to keep your air quality at its best and your AC unit operating in tip-top shape year round.
Most HVAC systems today are designed on average to last 15 to 20 years. However, they have to be properly maintained yearly. Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your unit to call an HVAC specialist.
