A Little A/C Maintenance Goes a Long Way

How short-term maintenance on your central air really pays off—in the long run.

Affordable Heating & Air Conditioning is famous for its central air conditioner maintenance and installation—among the best in our area. When your air conditioner is routinely cleaned and properly maintained by our experienced technicians, it runs more effectively and efficiently. We know tune-ups prevent the need for costly repairs in the future. In fact, neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in your unit’s performance while energy costs rise.

When performing preventive maintenance on your air conditioner, Affordable Heating technicians will clean and inspect its filters, evaporator and condenser coils, coil fins, and the condensate drain. They’ll also check for the correct amount of refrigerant and be sure there aren’t any refrigerant leaks. After checking belts, motors, terminals, connections, and other items, they’ll check the accuracy of the thermostat.

When Your A/C is Beyond Repair

Unfortunately, sometimes a maintenance call or tune-up isn’t enough to keep your unit operating. Watch for these signs that it might need to be replaced. Your:

  • Air conditioner is more than 10 to 15 years old
  • System needs frequent repairs
  • Cooling system is noisy
  • System puts excessive dust in the air
  • Energy bills are going up
  • Individual rooms seem warmer or cooler than others
  • Home is more humid than usual
  • System always seems to be running—without cooling

Although the upfront cost for a new air conditioner can be high, you save money in the long run by eliminating repair bills. A new cooling system will be more energy-efficient than the old one—an air conditioning system with an ENERGY STAR label can save you up to 20 percent on energy bills. It will use less energy, save money, and help protect the environment.
