You know that your aircon system needs a bit of attention from time to time, but do you really know everything that your service technician can do for your system? The care they give your system directly impacts your wallet, so it is important to acknowledge the different services being offered today. Which ones do you need? Which ones can you skip?
The bad news is you cannot afford to skip any of them. The good news is you will save a lot of money in the long run just by allowing the services to be performed on a routine basis. Here are five things that your aircon system can do for you, if you just get the services as necessary.
#1: Make your system run better, providing cooler air for your home.
Your system may deliver cool air to your home today, but are you sure that it is operating as efficiently as possible? If it hasn’t been serviced in awhile, then it probably is not operating at full efficiency. A system that is routinely checked and which receives replacement parts and cleaning as necessary will operate more efficiently and produce the coldest air possible at all times.
#2: Wash filter, coil, drain pan, and other parts so your air is fresher and healthier.
There are parts of your aircon system that need to be cleaned at times. If they do not get cleaned over a period of years, they can negatively affect the quality of air coming out of your air vents. If you have not had your system cleaned in awhile, then the air that you breathe every day is probably not as sanitary as it should be. A regular servicing of the system may involve cleaning some parts of the system, but it is important to ask about this. You need to make sure the coil, filter, pan and any other important parts are cleaned on a routine basis. Your serviceman can tell you the best timing for these cleanings.
#3: Catch any potential problems so there is no leaking or dysfunction.
You don’t want your system to start leaking or malfunctioning, and if you have a regular servicing for your system you won’t have to worry about that. Servicemen look for potential problems and fix them before they lead to dysfunction in the system. You may think everything sounds and feels fine, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t problems with the next major heat wave.
#4: Save you from paying ongoing expenses for repairs.
As problems are discovered and fixed early, you save money! It is much cheaper to fix a smaller problem here and there than it is to deal with one major system breakdown. Next time your serviceman says you need to change out a part, don’t get frustrated with another small expense. Thank him for catching something that could have been a more expensive problem in the near future.
#5: Ensure your system lives a long, healthy life.
Your aircon system will last much longer if it is serviced on a routine basis. The longer it lasts, the more you get for your money. Every time you skip a servicing or other needed repair, you are cutting the life of the system short. That means you are throwing some of your hard-earned money out the window.
