When you come home after a long Arizona summer day, there is nothing better than walking into a cool, comfortable home to relax. Coming home to a broken air conditioner, on the other hand, can be quite upsetting. For this reason, it’s essential to make sure that your air conditioning unit is functioning properly during these hot summer months and why AC System maintenance is of utmost importance. Our air conditioning specialists offer these helpful tips about air conditioning options that can eliminate dust and dirt from your air conditioner, as well as offer the required maintenance on your AC to keep you in the cool and comfortable.
American Cooling and Heating’s AC Services Tips:
One of the easiest air conditioning options is to be sure that you use a high quality air filter. Air filter replacement is the most commonly needed air conditioning maintenance service. Replacing the air filter monthly protects the mechanical components of your air conditioning system from dirty buildup. A dirty air filter also can impede airflow and force your air conditioning system to work harder and less efficiently to cool your home. A poorly maintained AC System may fail due to abnormal wear and tear. Dirt and dust buildup may cause you to need an air conditioner repair visit or may lead to expensive parts failures or AC Unit replacement. Our air conditioning specialists determine the condition of your AC System and thoroughly maintain it to help preserve comfort to your Arizona home.
There are many important reasons for having Heating and Air Conditioning System Maintenance performed.
1. Abnormal Wear And Tear
Abnormal wear and tear can occur due to a lack of maintenance; this in turn can cause damage to important system components and cause premature failure of those components. Technicians performing routine maintenance can keep your unit running as it was designed to.
2. Equipment Efficiency
Cleaning and tune up can dramatically affect system performance. A properly maintained system will have more capacity to perform its work when needed and at a reduced operating cost. The savings you gain by having periodic maintenance performed can help make up for the cost of the maintenance itself.
3. Equipment longevity
Regular maintenance can also substantially extend the life of your home heating system. And this is true no matter what type of Heating and Air Conditioning System it may be, by keeping heat exchangers clean and free of debris and by changing defective parts promptly.
Heating and Air Conditioning Systems can fail due to a lack of maintenance and this typically happens when you need to depend on the system working. This can cause something as minor as inconvenience or can put people with health related problems at great risk.
If your system is past its prime or even if it’s brand new take advantage of the energy efficiency gains made and avoid costs of premature failures by having maintenance performed annually. A licensed HVAC Contractor can visit your home and evaluate your Heating and Air Conditioning System and advise you of its condition. Here are some of the key items that should be checked annually:
**Check overall condition and health of entire system
**Check and clean condenser coil
**Check and clean evaporator coil
**Check condensate drain
**Check drain pan
**Check the air filter
**Check all electrical components
**Check refrigerant pressure for proper charge
**Check voltage and amperage
**Check temperature split on evaporator
**Check temperature split on condenser
**Check super heat and sub cooling
By following these best practices used in the HVAC industry you may lengthen the life of your existing Air Conditioning System as well as conserve energy and lower your utility bills.
