It may seem that spring only recently began, but summer will be here before you know it. In New Jersey, this means stretches of hot, humid days that are only bearable when you’re by the pool, at the shore, or inside with the AC blasting.
Since you haven’t been running your air conditioner regularly since last summer, how can you be sure it’ll be ready to handle the heat when you do turn it back on? The only way to be sure and truly prepare for the summer is to schedule AC maintenance early.
Reasons AC Maintenance is Important
An air conditioner is a piece of machinery that needs to be looked after. Although it’d be nice to think that it’ll run flawlessly forever, just like a car, your AC needs to be serviced to ensure it functions properly and doesn’t give out when it’s least convenient.
Having your air conditioner tuned up annually, before the temperature rises, is important to ensure you’ll be cool throughout the summer. When an expert HVAC professional performs maintenance on your air conditioner, you can expect to experience the following benefits:
- A Cool, Comfortable Home During the Summer
Maintenance for your air conditioner will ensure it works reliably during the hot summer months. The condenser and evaporator coils need to be cleaned seasonally for optimal efficiency. The air filter needs to be replaced or cleaned to keep efficiency and airflow high. Also, a clear condensate drain is essential to helping reduce humidity. Air conditioning maintenance will provide you with the peace of mind that you and your family won’t be stuck in an uncomfortable, sticky home.
- Prevention of Unexpected Breakdowns & Expensive Repairs
Just like a car, without proper maintenance, the chances of your air conditioner breaking down unexpectedly are much higher. By tuning up your AC annually, you’ll avoid the possibility of having your system stop working on what will undoubtedly feel like the hottest day of the year.
Since emergency repairs are costly and getting an HVAC contractor to come out right away is tough, having maintenance performed now can save you a lot of headaches and stress later on.
- Reduced Spikes in Your Monthly Energy Bills
Maintenance helps your cooling system run more efficiently, preventing energy waste and costly air conditioning bills.
- A Healthier Home with Better Indoor Air Quality
Air conditioners contain air filters that help to remove dirt, dust, and pollutants from your home’s air, preventing them from circulating and endangering the health of you and your family. Regular maintenance ensures the filter is fresh, so your home’s indoor air quality doesn’t suffer.
