Why Annual Air Conditioning Maintenance Is Important
Why should you invest in air conditioning maintenance? With AC maintenance services from a qualified HVAC contractor at Nexgen, you will enjoy: Longer Lifespan Your system will have a longer lifespan when it is properly maintained. Filter changes and tune-ups help reduce the strain on major components, so they continue to operate with fewer issues. You’ll spend less on replacing worn out parts. And, with the high cost of replacement, this is a benefit worth investing in. More Efficiency The better you maintain your system, the more efficiently it will perform and more consistently it will keep a comfortable indoor temperature. It will also use less electricity to provide comfort in every room of your home. Lower Energy Bills A more efficient system costs less to run, saving you time. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that you can save up to 30% on your energy bill just by staying up to date on preventative maintenance. Improved Indoor Air Quality As part of our HVAC maintenance services, we will replace air filters and clean your system, which makes your indoor air quality better. Poor indoor air quality can increase dust, allergens, and other airborne particles as well as pathogens and is linked to a variety of health problems. Having clean air at home is therefore very important. Fewer Repairs A properly maintained system is less likely to break down, so you can trust that your air conditioner is ready to serve you every day. In fact, you can reduce the risk of breakdowns by up to 95%. That means spending less on a major repair and more time before you need to replace the system.
Benefits of a New Air Conditioning System
Air conditioners are built differently than they were just a few years ago. Installing a new one mitigates issues from dealing with older systems. If you have an air conditioning system that is more than 10 years old, you can benefit from today’s higher efficiency solutions. ENERGY STAR certified units are designed to meet strict standards, which helps reduce utility costs and monthly bills. The savings add up over the lifespan of the system, so you can recoup much of the cost of replacing your air conditioners. Older systems aren’t as effective at cooling. Newer ones resolve this issue, so your home is more comfortable, while indoor air quality is improved thanks to effective dehumidification and filtration. Dust, pollen, mold, and other airborne pollutants can be removed to make the air in your home healthier. Our ACs also feature durable materials so they resist corrosion and wear and tear. With a new AC, you can also enjoy your home, work more efficiently, and sleep better.
Signs of AC Trouble and Wear and Tear
Maintaining your air conditioner properly can avoid or put off problems, but eventually wear and tear will take a toll. It is important to know when to service your AC because small troubles can lead to big hassles if not taken care of. Here are some of the top signs it is time to call an AC technician:
- A Lack of Cool Air: Your air conditioning is on, but the air isn’t as cold as it should be, or it’s blowing hot air. This could be a sign of a bad compressor, dirty evaporator coils that need to be cleaned, or low freon levels.
- Restricted Airflow: If the airflow from your AC or vents is weak, the cause can be worn motors or a blockage or leak in your ductwork. Airflow problems caused by debris can also pollute indoor air and become a health hazard.
- Moisture Buildup: The presence of moisture can be due to a refrigerant leak or a damaged drain tube, which is designed to remove condensation when it’s working properly. Moisture can lead to rust and mold and microbiological growth.
- Noise: Air conditioners make some noise, but squealing, grinding, or grating sounds are not normal; they typically mean something inside the AC is broken or failing, such as a belt or motor. In some cases, parts may need to be lubricated.
- Odors: If the air coming from your AC smells musty, there may be mold inside the unit or ductwork. A foul, pungent smell can mean the unit’s wire insulation has burned through, which can also be a fire hazard.
Indoor Air Quality
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
has painted some sobering facts about the quality of indoor air. It has said airborne pollutants are often 2 to 5 times more concentrated indoors than outside, and can be up to 100 times worse if air conditioning isn’t properly maintained. Indoor contaminants can worsen allergies and exacerbate respiratory conditions such as asthma. Even ordinary dust can contain dust mites, pollen, mold, dander, and cigarette smoke that can lead to serious health problems if not filtered out. Fortunately, cleaning/replacing AC filters and maintaining your ductwork can dramatically improve indoor air quality. But not all the solutions to indoor air pollution lie within your air conditioning. Eliminating the source of pollution, improving ventilation, and installing specialized air cleaners can help to ensure safer and healthier indoor air. Together with proper AC maintenance, your efforts to achieve cleaner air can mean improved comfort, reduced allergies, and better health and well-being.
