Annual preventative maintenance enables your system to
use energy more efficiently. System maintenance includes cleaning the cooling
coils, blades and other components. Clean cooling coils generate cool air more
efficiently. The system uses less energy to produce cool air, costing you less
to operate the unit.
Regular maintenance will keep your system running well
over its entire lifecycle. Many HVAC professionals report that one of the main
reasons that HVAC systems fail before the end of their estimated lifecycle is
because of lack of maintenance. Maintain your system each year and your system
will maintain your comfort for years to come.
As you use your air conditioning system over the
season, dirt and debris collect inside the cages and components of the unit.
These particulates can be released into the air inside your home, degrading the
quality of the indoor air. When you have routine, maintenance performed, the
technician cleans the dirt and debris so that the particulates do not pollute
the indoor air.
