The Benefits of Spring Air Conditioner Checkups

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 177

Wondering what happened to our winter? We've had very, very little winter and now we are quickly heading into springtime. Since we had such a warm winter will we have a record heat wave of a summer? What does this mean for you and your air conditioning bill? Yikes!

The truth is the best time to get your air conditioner tested is right now, before the summer really heats up. Sadly, the day most people find out their air conditioner isn't working is generally during a day of blistering heat, which is of course, too late.

So what are the benefits of regular maintenance?

Regular maintenance on your air conditioner will save you from headaches, time, and money.

Headaches and Time

The headaches and time quite honestly are dealing with your family when it's 100+ degrees outside and your air conditioner has stopped working. You're the one that will have to deal with finding that emergency repairman and waiting while the whole family suffers in the heat.

Money

Regular maintenance on your air conditioner can help save you money as the repairman may be able to detect and fix small problems before they become big problems. This alone could save you hundreds of dollars in repairs.

Well that was easy. Seriously, having yearly maintenance performed by a HVAC expert will save you not only money but also headaches.

So what is maintenance, how expensive is it, and how often do I need it?

Routine maintenance involves a heating and cooling expert coming out to your house and inspecting your system to restore peak performance. A good company should:

Check Refrigerant Pressures

Clean Outdoor Condenser Coil

Monitor Voltage & Amps

Check Superheat and Subcooling

Clean & Inspect Blower Components

Lubricate all Moving Parts

Check Electrical Connections

Monitor Air Conditioning Cycle

Check Temperature Drop

Replace Thermostat Batteries

Clean or Replace Filters

Air conditioner maintenance is suggested once a year. In addition to your maintenance, the technician will also help you to know when repair or replacement is necessary. Replacing older cooling equipment can save you over 60% on your electric bill. The experts will help you understand your options when repair or replacement becomes necessary. In addition, they can offer helpful explanations and offer suggestions to help you save money through tax rebates, upgraded thermostats, recommendations for increased insulation, and a whole host of other tips that HVAC experts have.

The bottom line is you spend a lot of money on keeping your house cool. You should start your summer with a checkup call to ensure peak performance. Your HVAC expert will be able to tune up your air conditioner and ensure your efficiency. If you need a replacement they will be able to offer you expert analysis so that you will get the system you need for your home. A good heating and cooling repair company will even give you back the price of the checkup back if you need a new air conditioner.
