The Ultimate Guide To Air Conditioning Maintenance

Having an air conditioning system that’s in good working order is essential to a Northern California home, especially as we move into the summer. But you don’t want to install an air conditioning system and then leave it alone for the coming months, neglecting to care for it until something breaks. That’s why before there’s AC repair, there’s also AC maintenance. With the right air conditioning maintenance company, tune-ups can help your AC unit run efficiently for years to come.

What Is an AC Tune-Up?

An AC Tune-Up is not quite the same thing as an AC repair. You may order AC repair when your AC breaks down in the middle of summer, or when you find that it’s making odd noises or blowing in warm air. An air conditioning tune-up company is called to keep your AC unit in check before repairs are needed. They inspect, analyze, and clean your AC unit to ensure that everything is running smoothly.

You want to be aware of HVAC companies that seem to give your AC unit little more than a passing glance. First of all, this can seem like a waste of money, but it also does not give them a full picture of what’s going on with your air conditioner. Service Champions performs 60-90 minute AC inspection checks, going over 21 different elements and functions of your air conditioner before we call the job done.

What Are The Benefits of Maintaining Your Air Conditioner?

If AC maintenance is done even when there’s no glaringly evident issue with your AC unit, this may beg the question, “If it’s not broken, why fix it?” However, there are a number of benefits to having regular AC maintenance done, including:

  • Saving money on repairs. An AC maintenance company can spot problems with your AC unit before they’re big enough to impact your home. This could save you hundreds on the cost to repair or even replace your AC unit.
  • Energy efficiency. By keeping up with regular maintenance on your AC unit, you can ensure that it runs at peak performance and as energy efficiently as possible, which can save you money on your cooling bills.
  • Extended life expectancy. Any machine, when neglected, can fall into disrepair. When you have regular AC tune-ups to ensure that everything is working properly, you can extend the life of your AC unit so that it runs for years to come.
  • Better air quality. Your AC unit plays a big role in the indoor air quality of your home. When all of the functions are kept clean and well-maintained, your indoor air quality will improve.

How Often Should You Have Your AC System Maintained?

So, we’ve discussed what AC maintenance is and the benefits of it. But what do we mean by “regular maintenance?” Experts suggest having service maintenance performed by a reputable heating and air company once a year to make sure that everything is running as it should be.
