Why Is AC Maintenance So Important?

Although your primary concern is keeping cool, there are two other reasons why you’ll benefit from regular air conditioner maintenance.

AC maintenance will save money

Regular maintenance will keep air conditioner parts in good working condition and less likely to need future AC repair. Austin homeowners and businesses can save money by keeping their AC system maintained versus spending on repairs - particularly emergency repairs.

Periodic maintenance will extend the life of your AC unit

Considering how expensive it is to replace an AC system, you’ll want to delay that as long as possible. When your air conditioner is working optimally, it’s more energy-efficient. You’ll see your electric bills decrease when the AC system is in prime condition.

AC maintenance will give you peace of mind

Along with feeling more confident that you’ll be comfortable in your home, AC maintenance can improve air quality. If anyone in your household suffers from allergies or illnesses that make breathing difficult, regular AC check-ups will ensure that your loved ones stay healthier and more comfortable.

What Does AC Maintenance Include?

  • Thermostat Check - The technician will make sure the thermostat is properly calibrated and installed in a spot away from all heat sources (including heat-producing appliances).

  • Inspect and Tighten Electrical Connections - Checking and tightening electrical connections improves not only the function of your AC system, but also ensures they’re safe (e.g. no exposed wiring). 

  • Inspect the Components, including:

    • Indoor blower and blower wheel

    • Refrigerant lines

    • Indoor coil

    • Outdoor coil and unit fan

    • Outdoor unit drainage

  • Clear Condensate Drain Line - Clearing the condensate drain line of clogs is necessary to eliminate leaks and prevent mold and bacteria from developing near the drain line. The technician will also check to see if the drain pan is intact. If it’s cracked, it can send water into unwanted places.

  • Inspect System Controls - A properly trained technician will ensure that every component of your system is cycling correctly (starting and shutting down at the proper times).

  • Lubricate Parts - Motors and bearings need lubrication to ensure friction won’t cause damage. The more smoothly the parts operate, the less likely they are to break down and need repair. 

  • Change Air Filter - Ideally, the homeowner should be regularly changing out the air filter. But it’s possible that the air filter isn’t the most efficient one for your system. The technician will recommend the air filter that’s best for you.

When Is It Time to Replace Your AC Unit?

There comes a time when it’s too late for AC repair. Pflugerville homeowners and businesses should look for the signs that indicate it’s time to purchase a new one:

 

  • If the unit needs frequent, costly repairs, it may make more sense to purchase a new, more efficient model. Although the initial investment might be costly, you’ll save money on electric bills in the future.

  • As the unit ages, it becomes more difficult for it to cool as well as it did in earlier years. If you’re not satisfied with your AC unit’s cooling—and an inspection has ruled out possible repair—it’s time to replace it.

  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has banned the use of some older refrigerants. If your unit relies on these ozone-depleting materials, you may want to consider a unit that uses an approved, safe-for-the-environment refrigerant.

  • The lifespan of an average air conditioning unit is 15–20 years. If your unit is creeping up on that age, it’s a good idea to put a new one in place before the old one gives up on the hottest day of the year.
