An HVAC expert should inspect your system at least once every year.
Regardless of whether you don’t suspect any problems with your cooling unit, HVAC experts say it’s a smart thought to have it inspected, serviced and cleaned once every year — optimally in the spring — to ensure it operates at peak effectiveness and is prepared to cool your house during the months you need it most.
As your HVAC system runs, it accumulates dirt and debris in key areas that influence its efficiency, like the condensing coils and air filters. Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose 5% of its effectiveness every year because of this development, which means it can’t cool your house as competently as it could in the event that it was clean.
Many HVAC companies offer low-priced, preventive maintenance service contracts — costing somewhere in the range of $70 and $100 — in which they’ll clean and service your HVAC unit and supplant your air filter. Some companies significantly offer discounts on the off chance that you sign up for a yearly arrangement and will give favored scheduling to preventive maintenance customers, should an issue arise during the busy season. 269-684-5196
Why Should I Get My AC Inspected?
Inspections pay for themselves through increased energy efficiency, which saves cash on service bills, and a longer-lasting AC unit. A yearly maintenance check by a licensed HVAC professional can help decrease your month to month energy bill by up to 15% and help prevent unnecessary breakdowns.
Changing your climate control system, on the other hand, will cost several thousand dollars. Even small repairs can run several hundred dollars. A certified professional can frequently discover and address small problems with A/C units through a standard inspection that, left unnoticed, could develop into bigger, more expensive issues.
A cooling maintenance inspection should incorporate checking the drain line, motor, blower, coils, the return and supply lines, operating pressures and temperatures, refrigerant levels, and connections.
In the event that you do hire a company, check to ensure its technicians are licensed as HVAC contractors and the organization holds workers’ compensation and insurance to secure you in the event of a physical issue or if property damage occurs while working.
On the off chance that your system seems to be working fine yet the professional suggests expensive repairs or supplanting your A/C unit, get guidance from different companies before approving any work to be finished. Most climate control systems should last 15 years, with appropriate maintenance. 269-684-5196
