As one of the few appliances that function inside and outside the home, air conditioners can undertake a significant amount of wear and tear. This is especially true during the blistering summer months as it works harder than ever to keep your home cool. If the air conditioner is exhibiting any signs of dysfunction, it is more likely during this time of increased usage that these small problems can worsen into a more significant complication.

If routine maintenance is ignored, an air conditioner could fail to function adequately or quit working altogether. When it comes to air conditioner maintenance, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure. Contact Andy’s Pipe Dream today to ensure that your air conditioner will continue running strong through even the hottest of Kansas City days!

The Importance of Air Conditioner Maintenance

The benefits of getting regular maintenance for your air conditioning systems are numerous. Maintenance helps sustain your air conditioner’s overall productivity and keeps your home comfortable even in the most sweltering of summer months. Below you will find some of the other major advantages of getting regular maintenance for your air conditioner. Contact our air conditioning contractors at Andy’s Pipe Dream today to schedule your service!

Prevents Unanticipated Repair Costs

If you invest in regular A/C maintenance, it allows our HVAC technicians to assess the overall function of your air conditioner to discover any potentially harmful abnormalities in the system. Many times, if an issue is found, we are able to perform preventative maintenance on the unit to ensure that a small problem doesn’t become a larger, more expensive repair when you least expect it.

Decreases Energy Costs

During the summer months, a home’s electric bill can skyrocket. This issue can be made worse by an air conditioner that is working inefficiently. Refrigerated air leaking through seams in the vents, clogged air filters, or debris gumming up condensers are among the many possible conditions that cut down an air conditioner’s efficiency. This alone can significantly drive up your utility cost.

Extends the Lifespan of Your Air Conditioner

An air conditioner is an investment in your home’s future comfort. As with any investment, the best way to extend its longevity is to provide it with regular upkeep and maintenance. When our HVAC technicians regularly check an air conditioner, it increases their ability to troubleshoot any potential problems before they lead to a massive system failure that could permanently disable the unit.

Improved Air Quality

Units clogged with dirt, grime, dust, pet hair and dander, bacteria, fungal spores, and other allergens can dramatically influence the air quality and comfort of your home. At Andy’s Pipe Dream, we provide a Home Comfort Solutions service. This service allows us to add high-quality improvements such as ultraviolet air purifiers and humidifiers, among other options that may suit your desired needs.

FAQs About Air Conditioner Maintenance

What time of year is best to get my air conditioner maintenance completed?

Our HVAC technicians recommend getting your air conditioner maintenance completed in the spring. This allows us to clean out any harmful elements such as dirt and debris that may have built-up in the unit over the winter as well as ensure that your system is functioning properly.

Is air conditioner maintenance worth the money?

Yes! While paying for maintenance services may seem like extra costs that are not necessary, failing to perform these vital upkeep tasks will lead to components of your system breaking down. In return, you will be left paying more for costly repairs or an entire system replacement.

I had regular maintenance done, but my system still broke down. Now what?

Unfortunately, performing regular maintenance doesn’t guarantee that your system won’t need to be repaired or replaced over time. However, it is proven that proper maintenance helps extend the unit’s service life and increase its functionality to avoid excessive amounts of repairs.

How long should my air conditioning unit last?

If you invest in having professional maintenance performed regularly on your unit, the average service life is 12 to 15 years. This tends to vary depending on how much you use the unit and the exact system brand/model that you have installed in your home.

Can I perform air conditioner maintenance myself?

You are more than capable of performing many of the simple maintenance tasks on your own, such as filter changes and basic cleaning. However, it is best to leave the more complex tasks to the professionals to avoid causing damage to your air conditioner unit. Contact us today!

How can I keep energy costs down during the summer?

Beyond having regular maintenance performed to ensure that your system is running as efficiently as possible, it is important to avoid overworking your A/C unit. Keep your thermostat set at a reasonable temperature during the summer, even while you are gone, to save energy.
