The Importance Of Maintenance For Your Air Conditioning System
When you replace the air conditioning system you will find that it’s one of the most expensive appliances in your home. Why let something that expensive go to the dogs? Proper maintenance is a must and recommended by all manufacturers. When done properly proper maintenance will extend the life of your HVAC system and help keep the power bill low.
When you decide to schedule an HVAC maintenance you will see there is no shortages of choices. You can go cheap with $29.95 or you can go high end with a system rejuvenation that cost $600. There is a lot of choices in between that range too. Regardless of which company you choose there are some key things that need to be cleaned periodically:
- Indoor coil should be cleaned 2 or 3 times during the life of the system(10 years)
- Drain line should be cleaned twice a year at minimum to prevent the line from clogging
- The drain pan should be cleaned once a year to prevent a buildup of sludge
- Electrical components should be cleaned and ensure no insect or pest have met their demise on the electrical circuit
- Cleaning the outdoor coil keeps the system running cool
Having the system maintained regularly also looks good to the manufacturer. In the event a part fails under the manufacturer warranty and its due to neglect the Manufacturer could deny your claim. Regular Air Conditioning System maintenance will also prevent costly breakdowns that can leave you hot when you need your air conditioning the most. An indoor condition can dictate how frequent your system should be cleaned. Air Hawk Heating and cooling recommends having the maintenance done twice a year.
