Most of the country may be preparing to rev up their heaters for winter, but not here. You’re probably going to have multiple occasions over the next couple of months where your air conditioner has to put in some extra hours to keep your home cooled down. With that in mind, it’s important to make sure that your system is getting the services it needs to stay in good shape. There are a couple of tips listed below that you should follow if you want to keep your air conditioner operating properly.
The Importance of Scheduling Preventive Maintenance
Most of the issues that are likely to affect your air conditioner are not going to give off major symptoms at first. You may go months with a malfunctioning system without even realizing it. By the time symptoms do start to crop up, the air conditioner likely will have already suffered damage that needs repairing. You obviously want to catch issues with the system before that happens. What you need to do is schedule professional preventive maintenance at least once a year.
Preventive maintenance involves the close inspection of every part of your air conditioner. Your technician will be able to identify any current problems the system is having, as well as any areas that look like they might become problematic in the future. Those areas can then be dealt with before they have a chance to cause any serious damage to the system.
Air conditioners that receive regular preventive maintenance have been shown to be up to 40% more energy efficient than those that do not. They have also been shown to be up to 95% less likely to develop issues in the future. If you’re consistent about scheduling preventive maintenance for your air conditioner at least once a year, you can expect both to save money on air conditioning and extend the effective lifespan of your system. If you haven’t scheduled preventive maintenance for your air conditioner yet this year, now is a good time to do it.
Call for Repairs
Preventive maintenance is great for reducing the chance of issues occurring, but it’s not a guarantee. If you have your air conditioner for long enough, there is a fairly good chance that you will deal with some kind of problem with it between maintenance appointments at some point. Make sure you call for repairs if you notice something odd happening with your air conditioner. It might be nothing … or it might be a serious problem that needs to be dealt with right away. You won’t know until you have a professional HVAC technician check it out for you. Symptoms of air conditioner issues include things like odd noises, constantly cycling on and off every few minutes, leaking fluid, or low cooling output.
