After record breaking rainfall amounts and a water storage crisis across northern California we can at last enjoy our full capacity reservoirs and ground saturation. In fact, the trees and shrubs are growing at a fast pace and it seems the yard work will never end! The days are warmer and longer and the summer heat is just around the corner. Now is a good time to service your air conditioner and replace your filter.
As your HVAC system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in key areas that affect its efficiency, like the condensing coils and air filters. Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose 5 percent of its operating efficiency each year because of this buildup, meaning it can’t cool your house as capably as it could if it were clean. A servicing of you’re A/C can pay for itself through improved energy efficiency, which saves money on utility bills, and a longer-lasting air conditioning unit.
A yearly maintenance check by a licensed HVAC expert can help reduce your monthly energy bill by up to 15 percent and help prevent earlier-than-normal breakdowns. An annual air conditioning maintenance inspection should include checking the motor (amperage draw and oiling if required), blower, drain line, coils, operating temperatures, the return and supply ducting, refrigerant levels, and electrical connections and safety controls. Keep in mind most air conditioners should last 15 years with proper maintenance. If your system doesn’t seem to be cooling like it should maybe you’re due for an annual maintenance or if your system is over 15 years old maybe it’s time to look at replacement options.
The new systems are considerably more efficient (lowering your cooling costs) and all of our installations come with a 10 year parts and labor warranty!
