It may still be winter, but warmer temperatures aren’t too far off, making right now the ideal time to schedule a maintenance session to keep your air conditioner performing at its best. There are a few basic tasks you can do on your own—like regularly changing the air filter (every 1 to 3 months, depending on the level of contaminants in your home). But for full maintenance that makes a difference to your Universal City, TX air conditioning system, you only want to trust in the pros.
Only a trained HVAC professional can address the numerous tasks that come with maintenance, with accuracy and precision. These tasks include inspecting motors and electrical connections for safety, cleaning coils and other moving parts, and making any necessary adjustments. We’ll also alert you to any repair needs that might have cropped up since your last maintenance appointment, which we hope you had done around this time last year.
Does Maintenance Really Benefit Your System?
Yes! We do get that question quite often, along with “can’t I skip it just this once?” The thing of it is, however, maintenance is not just a luxury service or a service to have done whenever you feel like it. Maintenance is what keeps your air conditioner running the way it should, and it’s what helps you avoid premature system breakdown.
Besides, there are a number of ways that professional AC maintenance benefits you, which we’ve highlighted below.
- Your Cooling System Will Be More Reliable: This is the most immediate benefit of annual air conditioner tune-ups. With this service, your AC will be less likely to suffer a catastrophic operational failure when temperatures are at their hottest over the summer. Maintenance involves a thorough inspection, which helps our technicians pinpoint places where wear on the system can lead to breakdowns. It’s also during this maintenance that we’ll make any adjustments to your system that may be necessary.
- You’ll Be Able to Cool Your Home More Efficiently: The wear and tear accumulated by cooling systems over the years puts strain on the components within the system. One component that suffers in particular is the blower motor. And when components suffer, your air conditioner has to work harder to do its job, resulting in higher energy bills for you.
- Your System Will Last Longer: Most air conditioning systems, when cared for as they should be, last between 10 to 15 years before they need to be replaced. But this is only possible if you keep up on your routine maintenance tune-ups. Be sure to schedule maintenance for the best return on your investment!
- You’ll Have Fewer Repair Needs: One of the last things you probably want to worry about in the middle of summer is paying for unexpected cooling system repairs. Fortunately for you, about 85% of the AC repairs you may need in the lifespan of your system can actually be completely avoidable thanks to regular maintenance.
