Why is it important to schedule regular heating and air conditioning maintenance?

The obvious answer of comfort is often overlooked when considering this question. Most modern heating and cooling units can function for long periods of time without any effort expended. If maintenance is not performed though, a unit can fall into various states of disrepair. This can lower the air quality of a home, raise bills, and slowly erode at the comfort of any open spaces. The following list is just some of the factors that a properly maintained ventilation system greatly effects:

  • Dust
  • Bacteria
  • Mold
  • Moisture and humidity
  • Pet dander
  • Pollen

When is the appropriate time to seek out air conditioning service or heating repair?

The modern heating and cooling systems plugged into most households need to be inspected annually to prevent breakdowns in service. Professionals also recommend that air filters on vents be replaced or cleaned every three months. This is the best way to ensure that a home will stay serviced through the hottest days and coldest nights. The health of an air conditioner also affects many other portions of a home's health. An inspection and maintenance appointment can also be a good opportunity for a technician to check for vent leaks or possible mold or mildew buildup in hard to see spots. They will also spend this time checking crucial components of the machine for long term wear that could cause a sudden disruption in service.

What are some of the most direct indicators that a homeowner needs to contact an expert that can provide air conditioner repair or furnace repair?

If a homeowner suspects that their air conditioner is wearing out, or a piece of the ventilation system has broken, they should always contact a professional for an inspection. Scheduling maintenance before a breakage happens is always the ideal response and could save a homeowner both time and money. If a fluid has leaked from the unit, or a fan is wearing out, it may lead to a complete break that causes the unit to not work at all. No homeowner wants to be caught by surprise and not have heat or air conditioning when they least expect it. The following list is some of the more common issues that a homeowner can watch out for:

  • An air conditioner that will not turn on. This is a sign that a fan or compressor may have broken. The thermostat may also be malfunctioning. This can take a significant amount of time to fix if not attended to.
  • Cool or hot spots in a home. This can indicate a ventilation system that has leaks or is clogged. A technician may be able to fix this easily.
  • The air conditioner or heater responds slowly and takes longer than it should to turn off. This is a sign that points to a broken thermostat.
  • Utility bills that have begun to climb without a change in usage. This is a primary signal that the vents may have leaks or clogs in them.
