Routine HVAC service may be the last thing on your mind when your heating and cooling system is running well. If you want it to keep running well, though, twice a year service is worth the small investment. This is particularly true in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where the hot summers give our A/Cs a serious yearly workout. Think of it this way, you would not go on a cross country car trip without first checking the oil in your car or go for several years without a routine checkup at the dentist for your teeth. It’s the same way with your air conditioning units. Except these checkups save your money on your electrical and utility bills and protect your equipment for many years.
Benefits you’ll gain from regular service include:
- Improved efficiency — Your system can reach top efficiency only when all its components are in optimal working order. The air filter must be clean to allow enough airflow for the system to operate efficiently. The blower fan and other moving parts must be cleaned and lubricated regularly. Your A/C evaporator coil needs routine cleaning and the refrigerant should be maintained at the right level. Twice annual HVAC service ensures all these issues are taken care of.
- Greater comfort — Certain problems impair your system’s performance, making it difficult to heat or cool your home. A clogged filter, dirty evaporator and condenser coils, and problems with the blower fan or furnace burner can cause your system to cycle too often and produce less warm or cool air.
- Safety — Regular HVAC service is a must for preventing life-threatening natural gas and carbon monoxide leaks. During a service call, the technician can spot a cracked heat exchanger, leaky flue, and other potentially dangerous problems. Air conditioning fires, while rare, do sometimes occur due to short circuits or other malfunctions regular maintenance helps prevent. Carbon monoxide protectors are very inexpensive and can plug into any 110 electrical outlet. Your NATE qualified technician can monitor the carbon monoxide protectors for your safety.
