During the warm summer months, most families rely on the cooling effect provided by their ducted air conditioners. After all, improper maintenance can lead to not just malfunctions, but to increased electricity bills that drain the finances of many households.
To prevent this problem prior to the onset of summer, Apex Airconditioning advises homeowners to make sure that the air conditioner system has undergone the proper maintenance routines for optimum functionality.
Reduced Energy Costs
When you have your ducted air conditioners inspected regularly, it can lead to an improved performance, resulting in lower energy costs each month. A contaminated air filter, for example, can affect the unit’s ability to circulate cool air throughout the room. This results in extended hours of running the air conditioner because the room feels warm even if the unit’s thermostat is turned on high already. Moreover, dirty condenser coils can cause the air compressor to run much harder and basically draws more electricity.
Regular Inspection and Maintenance leads to Reduced Repair Costs
When your air conditioner undergoes preventive maintenance, small problems like leaks, dirty filters and such can be detected early. Catching problems while they are small means you will be able to avoid major repairs later. The cost to check and inspect a condenser coil is much lower than having to replace the compressor itself. Through preventive maintenance, other issues may be discovered.
Extended Lifespan of Equipment
You can extend the life of your air conditioner by having it inspected. In addition, maintenance procedures should be done on a regular basis. The cost of air conditioners, especially central air conditioners or split type units, are substantial.
To get the most out of your investment, take care of it for the long term. Moreover, air conditioner units function at their best when they are serviced regularly and cleaned as required. It takes only one part to fail for the entire unit to malfunction. You do not want the stress and the cost of repairs to ruin your summer fun with your family.
