Reasons Why It’s Important to Do Maintenance on Your AC Unit

Maintenance on Your AC UnitAs with anything important, routine check-ups are key to ensure their longevity and to make sure things are still running well. Your air conditioning unit is no different. By committing to yearly air conditioning maintenance, you’ll be surprised at how much money you will save in the long run through reduced energy bills and decreasing your chance of an expensive breakdown.

In a blog post entitled "The Importance of AC Maintenance” on the American Energy Advisors website, they used the analogy of comparing an air conditioning unit to a car, saying that when a problem arises, “The solution isn’t to keep driving the car into the ground — you’ve got to bring it to a mechanic as soon as possible to diagnose and solve the problem. The same can be said for your AC unit, which can only run consistently and effectively if it is maintained on a regular basis.” This is where the annual maintenance check from McQuerry’s 24 HR Heating and Air comes in.

What Does an Annual Maintenance Entail?

At McQuerry’s 24 HR Heating and Air, we are thorough about our yearly air conditioning maintenance appointments. You will have a certified technician inspect your entire unit, check for any safety concerns, tune it up, and clean it up. Especially in the hot summertime, you don’t want to have any worries of an unexpected breakdown of your air conditioning. While a broken AC is a hassle, the reality is that it’s often avoidable with an annual maintenance check.

What Are the Main Problems Found in AC Units?

This may not seem all that profound, but one of the most important elements of air conditioning units are their filters. Filters that are not routinely checked and changed every month cause massive energy waste and result in a larger electricity bill because of how much harder your unit has to work.  

The evaporator coil is also a crucial element of your unit; if it freezes or abruptly stops, it will ruin the air conditioning in your home. If something were to happen with it, you would call a professional anyway, and likely have a costly repair. Why not be ahead of the game with an annual maintenance plan?
