How Important is Preventative AC Maintenance? VERY, Here's Why:

August 26, 2021 | Blog

The summer heat of Humble, Texas can reach up to 93 degrees Fahrenheit. On hot days like this, you’ll want to make sure your AC is up and running. AC tune-ups from Air Tech of Humble can potentially prevent your home from becoming a sauna.

Why Is It Important?

There are a few key reasons why air conditioning preventative maintenance is so important. An AC tune-up and/or a furnace tune-up help ensure your appliances are operating as normal. This prevents unexpected breakdowns, which saves you time and money.

AC units need routine maintenance to keep them running efficiently and effectively for years to come. Assuming you don’t need this service may lead to a decline in the unit’s performance. This could potentially lead to higher energy bills, decreased air quality, and sudden breakdowns.

Additionally, AC units that are regularly tuned-up will use less fuel. This benefits both the unit and the environment. Technicians can provide information on which refrigerants are the most eco-friendly.

It’s best to prevent any issues before they turn into dangerous, costly problems. Routine AC maintenance is a simple process with many benefits. Performing tune-ups at least once per year to maintain your unit’s efficiency is ideal. Your air conditioner unit should be checked in the spring, and your furnace units should be checked in the fall.

How Can It Benefit/ Harm You?

Preventative maintenance reduces the chance that your AC unit will need emergency repairs. Making certain your AC is working, as it should be, will help to catch any impending issues. This will reduce the likelihood of major problems. It also can save you money and a day spent in the oppressive heat.

Aside from avoiding emergency repairs, you can also save money on your energy bill. Maintenance will ensure your air conditioning unit is running at peak efficiency. This could help save you up to 30% off your bill according to the US Department of Energy.

But it isn’t only beneficial for your wallet and comfort. Having regular AC tune-ups can maintain the quality of air in your home. The Environmental Protection Agency states that the level of indoor pollutants in the air is 2-5 times higher than pollutants outdoors. This is a health concern to you and your family, especially if any have asthma.

Another potential threat is carbon monoxide. The Center for Disease Control warns that exposure to even low amounts of carbon monoxide can be dangerous. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can be lethal. Maintenance on AC units often includes tests for carbon monoxide levels. An AC tune-up can reduce the levels and give you peace of mind.

Maintenance on your air conditioner can help fight against potential threats to health. With regular tune-ups, your AC unit will filter the air and reduce the number of airborne pollutants. This will prevent health complications and make your home’s air cleaner.

Does This Need To Be Done By Professionals?

You could take preventative measures on your own such as cleaning your ductwork. However, it’s recommended that you contact professionals for AC tune-ups. As mentioned before, this process includes more than a quick check of your unit. Skilled service technicians can detect underlying problems you may miss. Knowing your AC unit is being maintained by a professional can also be a huge relief.
