An air conditioner is no longer just a luxurious piece of home appliance. It is in fact a necessity that many homeowners absolutely need. Some days and nights can get very hot and uncomfortable and so it would be great if there’s an air conditioner that you can use. However, it is also important to remember that regular AC maintenance is necessary if you want to have an efficient AC that’s always functional anytime you need it.
Maintaining an air conditioner for homes usually involves the following processes:
- Cleaning of AC filters
- Cleaning of indoor and outdoor unit
- Refilling of freon when needed
- Complete inspection of parts to ensure efficiency
Depending on how frequently you use your air conditioners in your home, it is ideal to get it maintained quarterly or at least twice a year. For those who rarely use their air-conditioners except during the hot summer period, then once a year may also be acceptable. Eggert Cooling and Heating advises at least two times each year for a full HVAC service, and clean out on the ductwork.
It is important to call for regular AC maintenance as it keeps your air-conditioner efficient and functional. Efficient means that it would only consume the rightful amount of energy. AC’s can easily consume a lot of energy that it can result in very high power bills. This amount can be significantly lessened when your AC is regularly maintained.
More importantly, a clean and well-maintained AC can help improve the indoor air quality of your home. This is for the sake of your health and that of your family. So even for this reason, you should consider calling an expert HVAC company to help maintain your air-conditioners at home.
AC maintenance done by professionals or a qualified HVAC technician may cost you a little money but that’s a service that’s very much worth it since it can help improve the performance of your AC, prolong its lifespan, and improve the indoor air quality of your home.
