What You Need To Know About Air Conditioning Service


If you only think about air conditioning service when something goes wrong with your system, you could be making a costly mistake.  Like any mechanical system, your air conditioner works best with regular, proper care and maintenance.  In addition to being more dependable and effective, a well maintained cooling system is more energy efficient and performs better over time.

Having your system routinely serviced by trained professionals can pay dividends in the long run.  Performing preventive maintenance on your air conditioning system has many important benefits, including:

• Improved system performance
• Reduced energy costs
• Extended equipment life
• Helps prevent costly breakdowns
• Better system safety

A professional air conditioner contractor knows the specific maintenance steps that your particular system requires and can perform them for you.  When it comes to air conditioning service and maintenance, even little steps can make a big difference.  For example, replacing and cleaning the air filters can have a positive impact on air conditioning system performance.   Clean air filters maximize your system’s air flow, making it cleaner and improving efficiency and operation.  Changing the filters regularly also reduces energy consumption and helps the environment.  According to www.energysavers.gov, keeping your filter clean can lower the energy consumption of your unit by 5%-15%, a significant savings.  Your air conditioner contractor can point out the location and type of filter that your system uses.

In addition to helping your system operate at top efficiency, having a trained air conditioner contractor service your system can give you peace of mind.  Your air conditioning system is a valuable component of your home, and with the help of your contractor you’ll know that you’ve done everything possible to guard your investment.

One of the best ways to keep your system in peak running condition is to protect your home air conditioning and heating systems with an ARS®/Rescue Rooter® Home Service Plan.   With a Home Service Plan, a qualified HVAC contractor will perform routine maintenance on your system as well as trouble shoot for potential problems.
