If your air conditioner isn’t that old, seems to be running properly and you remember to change the air filter fairly often, then what is the point of getting your A/C serviced? Why is yearly maintenance necessary?
A/C maintenance is about more than just checking everything to make sure it’s in working order. Think of it like automobile maintenance. By having your car serviced regularly, you make sure that everything is clean and operating properly. This keeps your vehicle running efficiently, costing you less in gas and repairs over time. Not only that, but your car and its parts last longer. Your A/C unit is no different!
The outside condenser unit of your A/C can get clogged up with dirt and debris. Those coils need to be checked, at least annually, and carefully cleaned when necessary. If the condenser isn’t regularly maintained, your condenser unit will have to work much harder to bring the air in and cool it. This results in higher costs and it’s harder on your equipment. The harder the equipment has to work, the more likely it is to break down sooner than it should. Cleaning the coils of the condenser, in addition to the other inspections that happen during a maintenance call, will keep your A/C unit running smoothly.
Since seeing is often believing, one of our Peck technicians recently took these photos of a customer’s clogged condenser, after removing the outer cover. This customer wondered why his air conditioner wasn’t working properly. Now you can see why!
