Enjoy a Worry-Free Spring with AC Maintenance

AAA Heating and Cooling’s licensed HVAC technicians can help you stay cool this summer, and save you money. A yearly maintenance check by a licensed HVAC expert can help significantly reduce your monthly energy bill, and help prevent future premature breakdowns. With routine care AC will cool more effectively and efficiently. Be prepared for the air conditioning season by scheduling a spring tune-up for your AC now so you can enjoy a carefree and cool summer.

Lose-5-percent-efficiency-each-year

Why should you get your air conditioning unit inspected?

  • Without regular service from a trained HVAC technician, a residential air conditioning unit will lose about five percent of its original efficiency each year.
  • Most of the lost efficiency can be recovered and prevented with regular maintenance.
  • Regular tune-ups allow an air conditioning system unit to maintain up to 95 percent of its original effectiveness for several years.
  • The cost of annual inspections and regular maintenance pays for itself by saving money on energy bills.
  • In addition to saving money on the short-term, yearly maintenance by an HVAC technician means not having to replace your AC — saving you thousands of dollars in the long-term.
  • Maintenance isn’t just a method to save money, it’s a big part of keeping your home comfortable. Inefficient systems will not regulate temperature, and fail to perform other important functions:
    • It won’t remove humidity from the air, which can make the air feel sticky and cause mold problems.
    • A dirty system recirculates dust and contaminants that can affect your health.
    • The unit may be running constantly or loudly — disrupting your peace and quiet.

Over time, extra strain wears down the unit and small problems may start to arise.  If problems aren’t addressed, then a unit could breakdown and leave you sweating in the heat. Regular maintenance prevents emergencies and keeps minor problems from escalating into costly repairs. Many issues can affect the performance of a unit:

  • Wires can corrode.
  • Belts and moving parts become worn.
  • Filters and coils become dirty and need cleaning or replacing.
  • Leaks can spring up at the most inconvenient times.
  • Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases.
