Time for Your AC’s Seasonal Check-Up
There’s no getting around the fact that we tend to ask quite a bit of our air conditioners once the warmer months of the year comes around in the El Dorado Hills area. Summer temperatures can be downright difficult to deal with for those who don’t have the luxury of AC on their side, and with temps already climbing back into the 80s, many people are starting to get nervous about what this will all mean for their energy bills going forward. One thing is for sure—there’s no better time than right now to ensure that your AC is operating at peak performance.
The importance of scheduling preventative maintenance should never go overlooked. Here are just a few reasons why it’s more than worth your time to pay attention to how well your AC is currently performing and prepare it for the summer months.
Enhanced Home Comfort
Have you ever experienced what it’s like to run your cooling system at full capacity on the hottest day of the year and still have a hard time getting temperatures to cool down? If so, you’re not alone, and there’s a good chance that the problem can be attributed to the overall cleanliness of your AC. A dirty AC will have a hard time operating properly, no matter how new the unit is. Maintain the air conditioner and you can expect enhanced home comfort, even during heat waves.
Better Indoor Air Quality
The quality of the air we breathe is not something that should be ignored, especially for those of us who suffer from asthma or other related issues. Boosting indoor air quality can be a challenge, especially if you have issues with air sealing or insulation throughout the home. One of the easiest ways to ensure that you and your family are breathing clean air is to clean and maintain your cooling system. The cleaner the AC, the better your indoor air quality is likely to be.
Longer Systems Life
We rely on our AC units here in California, and no one wants to buy a new HVAC system out of pure necessity. This is what happens when current systems aren’t properly maintained, however, as they can easily result in premature breakdown. If you’d like to extend the life of your heating and cooling systems, regular maintenance is the best way to do so. After all, cleaning and maintaining a cooling system is the key to keeping it functioning at full capacity for years to come.
