Though it may not feel like it quite yet, springtime is just a couple short weeks away. Before you know it, temperatures will begin to warm and you’ll once again be turning on your air conditioner to keep your living space comfortable. This makes right now the perfect time to start thinking about investing in a Couer d’Alene, ID AC tune-up.
There are a number of ways to ensure that your air conditioning system works efficiently all summer long, year after year. It starts with investing in an AC unit that is properly sized for your home, and has a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating, which is a measurements of the system’s cooling output against the amount of energy it consumes.
None of this matters though, without the proper care.
The Benefits of Routine Maintenance
If you have a central air conditioner unit, annual maintenance is essential. Typically the best time to have this maintenance conducted is in the spring, since that is right before its heaviest period of use and also when HVAC technicians tend to be the least busy with urgent service calls.
However, so long as you are having your AC tune-up done on an annual basis—or biannually if you have a heat pump system—you will be able to enjoy the benefits of this service. During your tune-up, our professionals will fully inspect and clean the entire unit, making any necessary adjustments and recommendations for repairs. But why does this matter?
Your System Will Perform More Efficiently
When dirt and debris builds up within your AC system, it causes friction and subsequent wear and tear on the various components of the units. This causes the unit to work less efficiently—it has to work harder to do its job, and expends more energy than it should have to in order to cool your home. This results in decreased comfort but increase utility bills for you.
You Will Be Able to Stay On Top of Repairs
As we mentioned above, during your tune-up our technicians will let you know if you have any repair needs. The quicker you take care of smaller repair needs, the less likely it is that you’ll run into larger emergency repairs later on down the line. You’ll also help your AC system last longer.
You’ll Extend Equipment Life
Speaking of helping your AC system last longer—if you stay on top of repairs and allow us to make necessary adjustments as needed on an annual basis, you’ll help extend the life of the various components responsible for helping your air conditioner function.
When your air conditioner undergoes regular maintenance, it doesn’t have to work as hard to do its job, plus you’ll have the peace of mind that your system has been checked on a regular basis. You won’t have to worry about having your AC unit break down in the middle of a hot summer day—that is, so long as you take care of repair needs right away. In the long run, this all saves you a lot of stress and money.
