Like any other piece of complicated machinery, your air conditioner requires regular maintenance. Regular maintenance can improve an air conditioenr’s energy efficiency, performance and life span. In today’s article, Green Air Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., one of the leading HVAC contractors in the area, explains why your air conditioner needs an annual tune-up.
Why Annual AC Tune-Ups Are Important
Air conditioners work hard during the cooling season. If your air conditioning system were a car, then you would be putting an average of 27,600 miles on it every year. You will need to keep your air conditioner in good condition through an annual tune-up because this will prevent your system from breaking down. For example, as little as .042 inches of dust build-up in the machine can cause an efficiency drop of up to 21%.
An annual tune-up by an HVAC repair and maintenance expert like us can catch problems like faulty motors or refrigerant leaks early. Our maintenance services can also improve your system’s performance and make it more energy-efficient. Your cooling system will also last longer because it will be free of dust and dirt and all of its parts will be lubricated and working properly.
Signs You Need an Annual AC Tune-Up
If your system emits warm air instead of cool air, then it probably needs a tune-up soon. This means that it is wasting energy by trying to cool your home to your desired temperature without results. Weak airflow is also a good sign that you may have a clogged filter or a leaky air duct. Dramatic temperature swings, unusual sounds and strange odors can all indicate that your system has a problem.
