With San Antonio and Austin’s excessive summer heat, you don’t want to be caught with an inefficient or non-working HVAC unit. Despite the fact that these units are designed to withstand all types of weather and conditions, they still need regular maintenance to ensure that they are kept in optimal working condition. Regular maintenance not only protects your system from unexpected break downs, it also saves you money and keeps your system operating at peak efficiency.
Did you know…
Systems that are not routinely serviced can lose up to 5% efficiency per year.
An AC unit that is 10% low on coolant can cost you 20% more to operate.
Routine HVAC maintenance performed by a licensed technician should be performed prior to the start of heating and cooling seasons. In addition, the Air Conditioning Contractors of American recommend that AC coolant levels be checked annually. During a routine maintenance visit, the technician will inspect your unit for damage and leaks, clean the condensing unit coils, check the amp draw of the compressor, oil the fan motors, check the belts to ensure they are well adjusted, and check the system operating pressures and temperatures against the manufacturer’s specifications. Systems that are routinely serviced generally maintain up to 95% of their efficiency rating, thus saving you money and keeping your home more comfortable.
Above and beyond routine servicing, you can contribute to your HVAC unit’s efficiency by regularly changing your air filters with high quality filters, keeping bushes and other materials away from the outside of your air conditioner unit and keeping your supply outlets open in your home.
