Many people do not seek out service for their air conditioning systems until something goes wrong. Perhaps they call a technician because the system has broken. Often, homeowners call in technicians for tune-ups once older systems stop performing as well as they did before.
But we think it’s so important to schedule service for an AC system every day, from the very first year you own your system. Signing up for maintenance service helps your system to live a long life and to remain as efficient as possible throughout its lifespan.
How Maintenance Visits Work
A maintenance visit for your air conditioner involves a couple of key steps. First, technicians complete an inspection of the inside and outside units, in order to ensure that everything is running smoothly. If not, they’ll present their findings and let you know so that you can make repairs.
Otherwise, they continue with the tune-up. The steps include important maintenance tasks like:
- Adding oil to motors.
- Cleaning the outside condenser coil.
- Calibrating the thermostat.
Some companies even clean or replace your filter for you (though you should be doing this every month as well).
All of this helps to keep your air conditioner running as smoothly as possible. It’s less likely to break down once it gets annual service and it’s your energy bills might be lower than in previous years.
Joining a Maintenance Program
The easiest way to remember to call for maintenance every year is to join a maintenance program with a local HVAC company. That means that you and your contractor enter an agreement in which you pay a set amount per year to get service for your system (both AC and heating, typically), and often additional benefits as well like discounts on parts and services.
