Keeping your A/C running during the summer is important for maintaining a comfortable climate in your home. Don’t wait too long to have your A/C unit checked before the summer. A hot summer day without a working A/C will make you feel miserable in your home. Unexpected AC repairs can end up costing an exorbitant amount of money. Having your air conditioning maintenance performed will save you money on your energy bill and help avoid unexpected repairs. Here are some of the reasons why regularly scheduled air conditioning maintenance is needed for your Jupiter home.
One of the most important maintenance checks is replacing or cleaning A/C filters. Clogged and dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a cooling system’s efficiency. When air bypasses the filter, it may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. This effectively obstructs normal airflow. Replacing a dirty or clogged filter with a clean replacement can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.
An air conditioner’s evaporator condenser coil collects dirt over months and years of service. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from soiling too quickly. An evaporator coil will still collect dirt over time. This dirt reduces air flow and insulates the coil, effectively reducing its ability to absorb heat. Your evaporator coil should be checked every year as a part of regular air conditioning maintenance.
Performing routine AC maintenance for your Jupiter home can help your cooling system work efficiently. When air conditioning units are working efficiently, less energy is used. Using less energy saves you money on utility bills. If you’ve been noticing an increase in your utility bills without any change in your cooling habits, then you may want to have your air conditioning unit checked out.
Having an AC unit cool on demand is important for Jupiter residents. When AC units start up slowly or spew out lukewarm air, they are in need of a maintenance check. AC units that make odd sounds during operation are also in need of a maintenance check. Professionals recommend that homeowners have their air conditioning unit serviced and inspected at the end of each summer season so that it’s ready for the next hot day.
Sometimes air conditioning units have to be replaced if it is broken or underperforming. Replacing a broken air conditioner is usually a costly and an unpleasant experience. Maintaining your air conditioning unit will help circumvent the purchase of a replacement unit. Many AC units can last for as long as 20 years with the right care and proper maintenance.
