Of course, your air conditioner leaves you stranded at the worst possible times; the hottest day of the year, holidays, family visits, etc. I know, because it has happened to me and I’m a (humble) Spring Hill air conditioning repair pro.
But what causes these stressful breakdowns and is there anything you can do to prevent them from happening. In a word, the simple answer is yes; usually. Like any piece of machinery, failures can happen; that’s why we have warranties.
But most failures are not the result of a manufacturing defect or happenstance; they occur due to a lack of proper maintenance.
Manufacturing defects are covered under fairly extensive air conditioning industry warranties but maintenance related issues are not. And while there is little you can do to prevent defect-related breakdowns, there is plenty you can do to deal with maintenance-related repairs and failures.
Let’s start with the filter(s). EVERY residential air conditioning system has a filtration system to ward off the abundance of dirt that will otherwise build up within the system. These filters range from $1 replaceable types to sophisticated systems that not only protect your cooling system but also dramatically improve indoor air quality.
Dirt is the enemy of your air conditioning system and is the single leading cause of system failure and air conditioning repair calls. The way to reduce (or eliminate) the buildup of dirt is to install the highest quality filters you can afford that will fit within your existing equipment.
Follow the filter manufacturer’s instructions and clean or replace them frequently and on a regular schedule.
Proper filter maintenance will help improve performance, reduce your utility costs, improve the quality of the air that you and your family breathe, and can dramatically extend the life of your system. ‘Nuff said.
The next best way to prevent dirt related failures and repairs is by having what we refer to as a precision tune-up and professional cleaning of your air conditioning system. Our precision tune-ups provide every conceivable maintenance and cleaning step to restore the full function of the system back to factory standards.
The system is checked for the buildup up dirt which is then removed from both the outdoor and indoor cooling and heat transfer coils. Utility studies have been conducted that revealed that a residential cooling system that is properly maintained with scheduled semi-annual maintenance that is properly conducted will save, on average, $39.67 each month.
Considering that here in Spring Hill, your system operates around 2800 hours each year, these savings will easily more than pay for the cost of the annual maintenance. Plus, as mentioned earlier, you and your family will enjoy the additional life and system enhancements that proper maintenance of your air conditioning system will provide.
