The Importance of Preventative AC Maintenance Before the Summer
With summer right around the corner, it’s important to schedule an AC preventative maintenance session. The air conditioner in your Fairfax, Virginia, home may be ready to handle the warmer spring temperatures. But is it ready to handle the hot, humid days of summer? Increasing cooling efficiency and maximizing indoor comfort levels are two important reasons to schedule preventative AC maintenance before summer.
Repair Potential Issues Now
The last thing you want is for the air conditioner to fail during the summer. Spring AC maintenance is a great way to fix any issues before the dead heat of summer sets in. A well-maintained AC system tends to have fewer repairs and has a longer lifespan than units that go without maintenance. AC preventative maintenance also reduces the likelihood of emergency repairs.
Increase Cooling Efficiency
Don’t put AC preventative maintenance on the back burner because you think it’s going to empty your wallet. AC maintenance cuts the cost of repairs and improves cooling efficiency. With your air conditioner operating at maximum efficiency, you’ll avoid high energy bills.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Virginia is known for its gorgeous scenery, especially during the spring and summer. Along with the blooming flowers, growing plants, lush trees and fresh-cut grass come with a lot of airborne allergens. These allergens can make their way into your home and aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms. AC preventative maintenance always includes changing the air filter. This ensures the AC system can trap airborne allergens to maintain healthy indoor air quality.
When you schedule your next AC preventative maintenance session, ask the service technician about duct cleaning. Dirt and dust trapped in the ductwork aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms. Therefore, it’s important to have the ductwork cleaned. Along with cleaning the ductwork, your service technician will also clean the coils on the cooling unit, which further improves indoor air quality.
