Why is regular maintenance important for your air conditioning system? Maintenance on your air conditioner by a qualified HVAC technician, like those at Millian Aire, can increase the lifespan and efficiency of the system. In addition to extending the life of your system, regular maintenance can spot small problems before they become large costly ones. Most of the time a system does not have a major failure without signs that things are starting to go bad. An experienced HVAC Technician is able to recognize the warning signs that the air conditioning system puts off.
Catching small problems before they turn into large ones is not the only way regular air conditioning maintenance can save money. As a system ages it loses efficiency. This can be due to multiple different factors. One of the most common reasons that a system will lose efficiency is the coils of the system accumulate dirt or other particulates and can no longer transfer heat effectively. Millian Aire Maintenance Technicians are trained to clean the outdoor coils and reduce build-up that would hinder the heat transfer. The chart below shows the degradation of efficiency over time. Larger units will lose efficiency quicker than smaller ones due to the accumulation of dirt on coils. By having a Maintenance Technician provide regular maintenance a system will decrease in efficiency much more slowly.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reported that pollutants indoors are often 2 to 5 times more concentrated than they are outdoors. If the HVAC system is not functioning correctly, those concentrations can skyrocket. Smoke, dust mites, pollen, mold, and dander are just some of the pollutants that can build up in your home. Regular air conditioning maintenance and replacing air filters as needed can help reduce those concentrations. Additionally, adding equipment that is specifically designed to reduce pollutants in your home can make your indoor air less polluted than the outdoor air.
Millian Aire Technicians are trained in indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions. After providing a maintenance on the air conditioning system, the maintenance technicians can provide information on the IAQ products that would be most beneficial for the system. Each IAQ product focuses on a specific area of indoor air quality and often times produce the best results when working together. The goal at Millian Aire is to provide customers with the information and experience they need in order to make the best choices for themselves.
Wear and tear will eventually take a toll on every system. Regular maintenance helps reduce it, but at one point or another there will be problems that a technician must repair to keep the AC system running. Here are some issues that may occur that will signal it is time to call an AC Technician.
