One of the services we stress at Greater Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.® is regular maintenance. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is that you have an HVAC expert inspect and tune-up your air conditioner at least once annually. Any complex machine that works hard for a good part of the year needs maintenance to keep it in good shape. An air conditioner is no exception. Scheduling yearly maintenance is one of the smartest steps you can take for to help ensure uninterrupted comfort in your home. Just telling you that maintenance is important isn’t enough: we’ll explain the three big reasons it matters.
Greater Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.® offers a quality maintenance contract for your air conditioning in Cincinnati, OH—and for your heating system as well! Contact us today to get started.
1. Improved cooling efficiency
If an air conditioner is left to its job without regular check-ups, it will soon start to collect dust and other debris, which will interfere with airflow. When this happens, your AC will start losing its ability to keep you cool. Icing can form along the coils, preventing heat exchange. Malfunctions in the compressor or the motors that aren’t taken care of will also make it harder for the air conditioner to reach the temperature you want.
2. Avoid major repairs
As an air conditioner begins to wear down from negligence, it will need to work harder—and that means increased stress and tear on all its components. You may not at first notice a difference, but the problems in the AC will continue to grow until a major malfunction occurs that requires costly repairs. Regular maintenance inspects your air conditioner for spots of heavy wear and remedies them. You’ll not only have fewer repair needs, but you’ll also have an air conditioner with an extended lifespan.
3. Energy savings
If an air conditioner isn’t running efficiently because of damaged parts, clogged filters, or loose connections, it will drain more power to achieve its target temperature. You may notice your electricity bills climbing: a grimy AC can cost as much as 50% more to run according to the EPA! Maintenance visits will check that your air conditioner is functioning at its most energy-efficient… and offer solutions if it isn’t.
Don’t hesitate to schedule that all-important maintenance check. Fall is a good time to get this done, since HVAC companies will have less crowded schedules. We take air conditioning in Cincinnati, OH seriously at Greater Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.®, and have for more than sixty years. Make us your choice for AC maintenance!
