Signs You Need AC Maintenance
We advise our residential and commercial customers to schedule seasonal AC maintenance in the spring before the cooling season because it’s the best way to avoid AC repairs, lower your monthly cooling costs, and extend the life of your air conditioner. If you can’t remember the last time you had maintenance performed, then you should schedule with us now even if it’s the middle of summer. There are also signs to watch for that indicate that your AC needs service. These include loud or unusual noises, strange smells, uneven temperatures, blown air that feels warm to the touch, high humidity levels, short or long cycling, rising energy costs, and power issues.
The Benefits of AC Maintenance
AC systems have moving parts and are thus subject to wear and tear and the accumulation of grime. It’s for these reasons that almost all HVAC warranties stipulate annual maintenance performed by a licensed technician. While many homeowners think about AC maintenance as an additional expense, it not only saves you money over the long term but even during the upcoming summer as it ensures that your air conditioner runs efficiently and thus costs less. An AC tune-up will also make your home or business more comfortable. The air will be less humid and more evenly distributed. It helps you maintain good indoor air quality and gives you peace of mind that your AC isn’t likely to break down unexpectedly.
Maintenance for All Air Conditioning Systems
The HVAC technicians at Sanks Mechanical have expertise with all of the air conditioning systems used for residential and commercial applications throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. We provide AC maintenance for central air conditioners, air-source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, and ductless mini-splits.
Central Air Conditioners
Central air conditioners are the most prevalent air conditioning solution in this region. These systems typically have an outdoor and an indoor unit. Air is cooled using refrigerant. That air is then forced into the ductwork by a blower and enters the living spaces via vents.
Mini-splits are not connected to ductwork and instead blow the cooled air directly into the living space where the indoor unit is located. These systems have an outdoor unit and can have multiple indoor units for zoned AC, and you have the option of cooling-only systems or those that provide heating as well.
Why Your AC Needs Regular Maintenance
The U.S. Department of Energy recommends regular AC maintenance in order to ensure that your system runs as efficiently as possible and provides you with the lowest total cost of ownership possible. This maintenance includes regular replacement of your filters, as a dirty filter can increase energy consumption by as much as 15%. It’s also necessary to have your evaporator coil and condenser coil professionally cleaned. Those coils accumulate dirt over time, which restricts airflow and interferes with the ability to absorb heat. Coil fins require regular maintenance to ensure optimal airflow, and condensate drains require regular cleaning in order to ensure optimal reduction of humidity.
