Why Air Conditioner Check Up

Top 3 Reasons to Get Your Home Air Conditioning System Checked Before Summer

So how many miles have you put on your air conditioner in the last year?

The point is worth making: just as you put miles on your car every time you drive it, you put “miles” on your air conditioning system every time you use it. And for the same three reasons you take your car into the shop for a tune-up, you should schedule an annual maintenance check – an air conditioning system tune-up – with Impressive Climate Control.

Why it’s so important to get my air conditioning system checked before summer?

Here are the Top 3 Reasons to Get Your Air Conditioning System an Annual Maintenance Check

. 1 : A tuned-up air conditioning system runs more efficiently.

Why-Air-Conditioner-Check-Up

Explanation: The biggest threat to any piece of machinery – especially one as big and complex as your air conditioning system – is a buildup of dirt and grime. Cleaning is one of the most important functions of an annual maintenance check since dirt tends to accumulate most on the evaporator, condenser coils and blower components.

Take it from the Natural Resources of Canada “Proper maintenance is critical in ensuring that your central air conditioner will operate efficiently and have a long service life.”

An air conditioner’s filters, coils and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases.

. 2 : A tuned-up air conditioning system runs more economically.

Explanation: A dirty air conditioning system runs not necessarily “harder,” as some people say, but it does run longer. And the longer it takes for your air conditioning system to meet the temperature you have set on your thermostat, the more money it will cost you to operate. It is a mathematical certainty.

For example, a homeowner who follows up an air conditioning system tune-up with a wholesale “seal and caulk” campaign should realize greater energy savings than a homeowner who does not. This is why home owners should research statistics as a baseline, a beginning place.

So, for example, when The New Buildings Institute finds that “best practices” in maintenance can reduce energy use by between 10 and 20 percent across all climate zones in the North America while “poor maintenance practices” can increase energy use by between 30 and 60 percent, we let out a cheer. Think what Chico area residents can do to trim their energy bill if they really put their mind to the task.

. 3 : A tuned-up air conditioning system should last longer.

Explanation: Just as a well maintained car lasts longer, a well maintained air conditioning system should last longer, too. In fact, the manufacturer of your system has probably spelled out how long your system should last “with proper maintenance.” This is a subtler way of saying that the system doesn’t stand much of a chance without proper maintenance.

Air conditioning systems are highly complex pieces of machinery, reflected in the fact that most of them run between 10 and 15 years (contrasted with furnaces, most of which last between 20 and 25 years). An annual tuneup will help ensure that your system goes the distance.

Julie from Ottawa Says

Impressive Climate Control came to my house within a week of me asking for a gas fireplace inspection. This is our first winter in this house and I had never had a gas fireplace before and I have always been somewhat afraid of gas. The inspection and repairs were done. We got information of what to do at what time of the year and how to clean the glass. I was reassured about the safety of a gas fireplace. I could not be more satisfied.

This customer had a POSITIVE experience with this business.
