Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance

The following are a few of the benefits of air conditioner maintenance, which indicates why all HVAC professionals stress the necessity of regular seasonal maintenance on residential air conditioning equipment:

Below are 4 Benefits of Regular AC Maintenance:

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency

    Our seasonal maintenance service includes the cleaning and inspection of the AC system’s fan blades, motor, cooling coils, and of other related equipment and essential components that have a direct effect on the unit’s level of efficiency and performance. With the coils and some of these other parts getting regular service, the system is able to provide cooler temperatures easier, which reduces overall energy consumption — even as the temperatures outside continue to rise.

  • Improved Indoor Air Quality

    During a routine service call for maintenance, we clean out particles that collect within the AC system and get trapped there — things like pet dander, dust, dirt and grime. If not addressed, this stuff can eventually travel into a homeowner’s ductwork where it builds up where it can get circulated back into the home in the air you, your loved ones and guests breathe. Check out our Indoor Air Quality products that are installed seamlessly into your current HVAC system.

  • Comfort Optimization

    We call them comfort systems for a reason! Failing to have an AC serviced leads to the decline of comfort levels. The good news is that we closely scrutinize and test all the various parts of an A/C system. Doing so, we’re able to locate any abnormalities or things that are of concern and might need to be addressed before the cooling season is in full swing. The results in a fine-tuning, an enhancement of the home cooling system that enables the A/C to perform at its best.

  • Keeping Warranty Active

    If your home cooling equipment is still under warranty and you neglect to have your A/C serviced for even a single year, that warranty becomes a worthless piece of paper. This is because the manufacturers of air conditioning equipment also recognize the importance of maintenance performed by an NATE-certified professional. They mandate it be performed every year in order to keep warranties valid. Otherwise, if something happens, if a part fails or becomes defective and the system wasn’t properly serviced, the homeowner is out of luck. Why risk it?

How to Replace an A/C Air Filter

In many homes, the air conditioner’s air filter is located near the thermostat. So, to start this process, the first step is to find the filter. Go to your thermostat, and look for a vent. If you’re unable to locate a return vent with the filter located nearby, look at the A/C unit. Some models have the air filter closer to the system, instead of at the return air grille.When you find the air filter, the following steps explain the rest:

After you have the replacement filter, all you need to do is go through these straightforward steps:

  1. Turn the A/C "off." Loosen the fasteners holding the front of the grille to the vent, and remove the cover gently. Then, place to the side. The air filter should be directly behind this cover. Pull it out carefully.
  2. Then, set the air filter off to the side, and assess the condition it’s in. A dirty or bad air filter is usually a dingy, greyish-brown color. If it still looks whitish and fairly new, there might be some life left in it. Be sure to purchase the right size.
  3. Identify the arrow pattern on the edge of the filter. The direction of the arrows is important to ensure proper airflow. The arrows should not point outward or towards you. If they do, airflow will be restricted.
  4. Then, put the filter back into the return duct opening. You want to gently ease in the bottom portion of the filter first, and then the top.
  5. Give the filter a gentle pat to ensure that it snugly fits into the opening. Then, place the cover back on.
  6. Return A/C to “on” position
