The many benefits of maintaining your A/C

Danielle Onat | 05/22/2017 | Posted in Air conditioning, Ductless heat pump, Heat pump, Cooling

This post will cater to those homeowners who decided long ago (or maybe even recently) that their summers would be more enjoyable if they could dwell in the coolness and comfort of an air-conditioned breeze. But alas, cooling units are not immortal. They require maintenance to keep their cool.

In our last couple blog posts, we’ve discussed cooling systems: why spring is a great time to finally install a cooling system and why the PNW can benefit from ductless air systems. Here are a few benefits of performing regular maintenance on this summer-saving workhorse.

Less repairs mean less cost.

Regular air conditioner maintenance can catch small problems before they become major. This can potentially save hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on future repairs or replacement of your unit. Invest a bit now to save a lot later.

Your unit will last longer.

When you take care of your cooling system, it will take care of you—oftentimes for the long haul. Maintenance, including changing your air filters often, promote longevity for the system. In short, maintain your system and it can last for years to come.

You’ll have peace of mind when you need it most.

We don’t need to remind you—sometimes it gets HOT here in the PNW. Don’t put off maintenance until your unit fails. If this happens in the summer, a busy time for cooling maintenance professionals and installers, you could be trapped in a very warm home. Maintain now to stay cool this summer.

So what does maintenance look like?

Here’s a snapshot of the cooling system maintenance services provided by Washington Energy Services:

Heat Pump or A/C Tune Up: Whether you have a heat pump or air conditioner, a Precision Tune Up is the gold standard when it comes to keeping your system running efficiently. Our NATE certified and factory trained technicians service most makes and models of heat pumps and air conditioners including Bryant, York, and others.

Split System Tune Up: If you have a split system, meaning your heat pump or air conditioner are connected to a furnace air handler inside your home, this tune up services both units to ensure they keep working harmoniously.

Guardian Maintenance Club: As a member of the Guardian Maintenance Club, you’ll receive annual tune ups at discounted membership rates. We’ll remind you and schedule your appointment when you need it.

You know you’re going to use your A/C this summer. Perform maintenance now to protect your investment, prolong the life of your unit, and ensure your summer will be a cool one.

    Regular air conditioner maintenance can reduce stress and strain from your air conditioner and saves energy. That’s why you should perform regular air conditioner maintenance regularly.

    We have an air conditioner that came with our house. Since we didn’t have it installed and it came with no information, we don’t know how long it has been since it has had maintenance. What you wrote about how taking care of the system which includes air filters and maintenance will help it to last longer. We will call an HVAC contractor this week.

    I like that you mentioned that changing your air filters often promotes longevity for the system. My sister said to me last night that she bought a new air condition and asked me if I could install it independently. I don’t know how to tell her that it will be much easier if she hires a trusted air conditioning installation company in town.

    I like how you mentioned that my heating unit will last longer when properly maintained. I’ve been wanting to hire a HVAC company to come and service my heating unit. I’ll need to look into seeing a heating specialist to come give me an estimate on servicing the heating unit in my home.

    I like your AC tips. My unit broke. I’ll have to have a contractor check the coils.

    I like your HVAC tips. My AC is broken. I need new condenser coils.
