Is Yearly AC Maintenance Necessary?

AC-technician-with-hardhatYou better believe it. There are obviously a lot of things in life that are up for interpretation or discussion. When it comes to air conditioning maintenance, however, the facts are the fact. No air conditioner is going to achieve peak performance levels if it is not routinely tuned up by a qualified professional. Yours is not the exception to this rule. Scheduling air conditioning maintenance on an annual basis is the only way in which to get the most from your system.

In our age of DIY internet tutorials, you may think that you can handle your AC maintenance in Corona, CA on your own. We cannot urge you strongly enough to reconsider. There are a few basic maintenance tasks, such as changing out your air filter as needed and keeping the area surrounding the outdoor unit clear of debris, that you can take care of personally. There is much more to professional AC maintenance than this, though, so leave it to the technicians on our team.

What Does Routine Air Conditioning Maintenance Entail?

You may hear a word like “routine” and think that it implies “simple” or “not a big deal.” You’d be very wrong in this case, though. While it should be completed routinely, annual air conditioning maintenance is most definitely not something that just anyone can handle. If you are unfamiliar with what goes wrong during these maintenance services, you may fail to understand the scope of the job at hand.

  • Lubricate moving parts as needed.
  • Inspect thermostat settings.
  • Tighten and clean electrical connections.
  • Inspect condensate drainage assembly.
  • Check refrigerant levels.
  • Clean/adjust blower as needed.
  • Test voltage.
  • Check all system controls.

We will complete every step of the maintenance procedure, including those above, with the greatest of care. Remember, maintenance is not meant to be an opportunity for fixing existing problems. It is all about avoiding those problems in the first place.

What Are the Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance

There are quite a few of them, and they are major. First of all, there is the matter of efficiency. Even if your air conditioner is up and running, it may not be up and running properly. Problems of any kind with your system, including those that may not be immediately symptomatic, can still drag down energy efficiency. With regular maintenance, you won’t have to worry about overpaying to cool your home successfully.

There is all the issue of overall performance quality and reliability. The last thing that you want to be dealing with on one of the hottest days of the year is a broken down air conditioning system. If you are serious about getting the most effective and most reliable performance possible from your home cooling system, keeping it tuned up is definitely a huge step in the right direction.

Lastly, consider the lifespan of your air conditioner. There is no such thing as a mechanical system that will last forever, residential air conditioners included. Routine maintenance, however, can ensure that you get the best, most productive lifespan possible from your system. That way, you won’t be needing a premature replacement.
