Why Is Professional AC Maintenance So Important?

When it comes to air conditioning, homeowners are all too familiar with unexpected breakdowns, steep energy bills, and premature replacements. One of the best things you can do to improve the performance of your HVAC system and prolong its lifespan is to schedule regular preventative maintenance with a professional technician. Ideally, system maintenance should be performed at least two times a year–once before heating season and again before the warmer Florida weather sets in.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

With summer temperatures on the rise, it’s important that your home, apartment or commercial space is equipped with a powerful and effective air conditioning system.

In order to operate properly, the internal components of your air conditioner work hard and can become worn down over time. In addition to this, particles such as dust can collect inside your air conditioner and cause it work at a lower level of efficiency than normal.

The end result for you is a less effective air conditioning system that doesn’t deliver the same level of cooling, all while using more energy than it should.

Regular air conditioning maintenance can keep your air conditioning system in great condition all year, helping you enjoy cool air and an optimal energy efficiency level every time you switch on your air conditioner.

As one of South Florida’s top HVAC companies, we offer air conditioning maintenance services for both residential and commercial customers. Our experienced team can perform a variety of routine maintenance tasks to keep your air conditioner in top condition at all times.

Regular maintenance saves you money, helps you enjoy a more effective air conditioner and is an important step for increasing your air conditioning system’s lifespan.

The Importance of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Just like it’s important to maintain your car, regular maintenance is essential for both the health and overall effectiveness of your air conditioning system.

Modern air conditioners are made up of several complex parts and systems. When you need to cool your home, apartment or commercial space, several complicated systems work in tandem to deliver cool, clean and consistent air.

First, the air conditioning system transports air through ducts into your home unit. From there, the air is filtered to remove dust, dirt and other common pollutants, ensuring you only receive clean, comfortable and non-polluted air.

Finally, the air is chilled through the system’s coils, which use compressed refrigerant to bring the air down to the desired temperature. The entire process depends on multiple systems that work continually in order to supply your home, apartment or commercial space with cool air.

If even one of these processes stops working as it should, it can negatively affect the entire air conditioning system. For example, a clogged air conditioning filter can result in reduced airflow for the entire system, leaving you with a less powerful air conditioner and little cooling.

Air conditioning maintenance is important because it stops regular issues from developing into serious problems. By regularly cleaning your system’s filter, topping up refrigerant and carrying out other maintenance, you can drastically cut the risk of damage and the need for repairs.

The Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance

To some, air conditioning maintenance can seem like a cost. To smart homeowners, regular air conditioning maintenance is actually an investment. A proactive approach to maintenance can help you reduce your bills, extend your system’s lifespan and enjoy better energy efficiency.

Below, we’ve listed some of the top benefits of air conditioning maintenance, ranging from lower bills to better system performance:

  • Better energy efficiency. Regular maintenance of your air conditioning system reduces the risk of clogged filters, frozen coils and other problems affecting efficiency, resulting in a more energy efficient system that cools your home at a lower environmental cost.
  • Lower energy bills. Because properly maintained air conditioning systems use far less energy, they also cost significantly less to operate. With regular maintenance of your air conditioning system, you’ll enjoy lower energy bills compared to other homeowners.
  • Fewer breakdowns and repairs. Servicing your air conditioner is cheap, fast and easy, especially compared to the cost of a comprehensive repair. Regular maintenance helps you prevent breakdowns, reducing your total air conditioning bill.
  • Longer air conditioner lifespan. Because maintenance reduces the level of strain on your air conditioner, it can have a positive effect on its lifespan. Air conditioning systems that are properly maintained last far longer than their non-maintained counterparts.
  • Better indoor air quality. When you fail to service your air conditioner, it doesn’t take long for dust and dirt particles to collect inside its filter, resulting in reduced air quality levels in your home, apartment or commercial space.

The simple fact is that regular air conditioner maintenance works. To schedule your servicing appointment or sign up for regular scheduled air conditioner servicing, please contact our team on  (305) 363-7021.

Our Air Conditioning Maintenance Services Near You

We offer a complete range of air conditioning maintenance services and can service AC units of all sizes and configurations, from small air conditioners and ductless units designed for homes and apartments to commercial air conditioning systems.

Our team of NATE, EPA and OSHA Certified technicians work with all air conditioner brands and manufacturers. We can service both newer air conditioners and older units.

Our air conditioning maintenance process involves both inspecting your unit for potential issues and carrying out a range of maintenance tasks to improve performance, including:

Air Conditioner Filter Cleaning

Over time, the filter in your air conditioner can become clogged with dust, dirt and other sources of debris. This blockage can prevent your air conditioning system from working as efficiently as it should, all while reducing air quality and polluting your home with unwanted particles.

Our air conditioning filter cleaning service increases the energy efficiency of your air conditioner, improves air quality and significantly reduces the risk of damage to your air conditioner’s internal components.

Air Conditioner Coil Cleaning

The coils inside your air conditioner can collect dust, dirt and other debris over time, particularly if your air conditioning system’s filters aren’t cleaned regularly. This can affect performance and result in your air conditioner not working as efficiently as it should.

In some cases, our technicians might need to clean your system’s condenser coils. The small fins around your system’s evaporator and condenser coils can also require maintenance, often due to bending and blocked airflow that can occur over time.

Air Conditioner Refrigerant Levels & Leaks

One of the most common air conditioner problems is a refrigerant leak. This can occur when the copper tubing inside the system or the connection points develop cracks, causing refrigerant to leak out from the system.

Unlike other devices, air conditioners do not “use up” refrigerant over time. If your air conditioner seems underpowered and incapable of providing cool air, it could be the result of a refrigerant leak.

As part of our air conditioning servicing, our technicians will check your unit’s refrigerant level to determine whether or not a leak is present. If a leak is detected, we can perform a full repair and refill the unit’s refrigerant tank to return it to normal performance.

General Air Conditioning Maintenance

In addition to the specific services above, a large amount of air conditioning maintenance is best referred to as “general maintenance” — tasks such as cleaning out the area surrounding your air conditioner, disassembling and cleaning the unit and other regular maintenance tasks.

This type of general maintenance is important for preventing problems from developing. Regular maintenance can keep your air conditioning system operating at 100% efficiency and extend its lifespan, all while significantly reducing the chance of broken parts of malfunctioning.
