Air Conditioning System Maintenance
Proper air conditioning system maintenance is extremely important if you want to have a system that will work well over the long term. If you’ve just had a new AC unit installed, the temptation is certainly there to assume that it must be working properly. And if it is, why should you pay more to have maintenance work performed?
In general, it’s true that most new air conditioning systems will work well for several years. However, you can dramatically increase their efficiency and lifespan by keeping up with a regular air conditioning maintenance schedule.
Here at Boulden’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, we’re excited to be your choice for all of your greater Wilmington and Dover, DE area air conditioning system maintenance needs. Our expert technicians will be happy to come out and see what kind of shape your system is in. We’re fully prepared to assess your situation and perform any work necessary to keep your air conditioning system functioning well.
Did you know that your air conditioner needs to have clean coils to work effectively? Your evaporator coil is what cools the air that circulates throughout your home and the condenser coil is what releases the heat collected to the outside. If either of these is dirty, your air conditioner will not function as efficiently. Cleaning your coils is one of the many things your technician will do during your annual maintenance visit – call us today to schedule your appointment!
The Importance of Maintenance
As with just about any other type of mechanical system, air conditioning systems wear down over time. Their parts will only work at peak efficiency for so long before they need to be replaced or they will impact the performance of the entire system.
Of course, the wearing down of these parts is completely normal. It doesn’t have to turn into a major problem or cause significant repairs to be necessary. But if these conditions are neglected, that’s exactly what will happen.
And really the main reason for this is that you won’t be able to notice certain parts wearing down through the daily functioning of your air conditioning system. Your unit may be working harder to provide the same comfortable climate, but you probably won’t be able to tell the difference. Until the unit stops working entirely, that is.
However, regular annual maintenance inspections of your air conditioning system can catch these types of issues before they turn into big problems for you. And maintenance checks don’t need to be a disruption to you or your family, and they don’t take a lot of time. They will, however, give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your air conditioning will work when you need it.
