Why Some AC TLC Belongs on Your Spring Cleaning To-Do List
Did you know that 90 percent of all air conditioning breakdowns are the result of little or no maintenance? Or that dust, dirt, and grime buildup is the number one reason for repair? If you haven’t had your air conditioning system inspected lately, it’s probably not operating at optimum efficiency—and working harder than it should to cool your home. That means more strain on your system, reduced cooling, and higher monthly energy bills.
One of the best ways to ensure your air conditioning is ready to cool your home during the months you need it most is to have it inspected, serviced, and cleaned—which will result in better:
- System performance
- Airflow and circulation
- Humidity control
- Energy efficiency
HVAC manufacturers recommend having air conditioning systems cleaned and maintained once a year. During a typical maintenance call, a technician removes debris from the exterior unit and cleans all indoor and outdoor coils, the condensate drain, and blower components. He performs a comprehensive system inspection, lubricates moving mechanical parts, checks fluid and pressure levels, replaces or cleans the filter, and examines the wiring and thermostat controls before finishing up with a system performance test.
As you’re putting your to-do list together, make cleaning your system a priority and schedule an appointment with an HVAC professional like Carrier dealer Gross Heating today.
