Why is an Annual Service Check Essential?

Early maintenance can help catch small problems before they turn into bigger problems, which can save you money.  Fixing or replacing a smaller issue is cheaper than having to do a major overhaul because you waited too long to address the issue. An annual service check can ensure your system is running at peak performance, especially during the height of the summer season. Yearly maintenance can also help to expand the life of your air conditioning system (read more below) and reduce your energy bills.

Besides saving you money and ensuring you avoid bigger problems with your air conditioning system, an annual service check can also help your system run cleaner. This is essential because without a clean-running system, the air quality, humidity levels and general comfort in your home may be compromised.

During your annual maintenance call, your certified air conditioning technician will be able to review the entirety of your system, from the ductwork to the filters. He can check for damage or excessive wear to components and clean and inspect all the different parts of your equipment.

Here are just a few essential maintenance checks your service technician should perform:

  • Clean evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils. Dirty coils reduce the system's ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer than needed. 
  • Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels.
  • Check the aluminum fins on the rear of the unit; they can get bent and crushed when objects touch them, reducing the efficiency of the unit.

After a thorough tune-up, he/she will be able to recommend a course of action to address any issues, such as a thorough cleaning of your ductwork, changing of filters or other maintenance that might be needed. Your technician can also advise you on steps to take in-between service calls and when to schedule your next call, whether it be in a few months or the following year.
 

Prolonging the Life of your Air Conditioning System

Another added benefit to annual air conditioning service is prolonging the life of your system. There are many maintenance steps you can take on your own to keep your system in top shape in between professional service checks. Read our related post, Eight No-Cost Ways to Improve Air Conditioning Efficiency, for tips you can practice yourself at home. Annual maintenance can extend the life of your system by up to three to five years, which also save you up to 20% on your utility bills.

Annual service also protects your system's warranty. Should you have any major problems occur with your system during the warranty phase, your claim can be denied if your don't provide clear documentation of regular maintenance. In other words, having a warranty can mean little to nothing if you don't care for your system regularly.

For all these reasons, there has never been a better time than now to schedule your annual air conditioning service check. It will give you the comfort you desire during the long, hot summer ahead and also help you manage your energy expenses for the long life of your system.
