Do You Need An AC Check-Up?

When it comes to the costs that are included in your home, heating and cooling will make up about 50 percent of them each year.  Depending on where you live in the country, the heating or cooling can be more or less than the other.  That is why it is important that you make sure that you are doing regular maintenance on the equipment that is needed to keep you cool or warm.  Your furnace and air conditioner unit are very costly to replace, but if you can keep up with a regular maintenance schedule there is no reason why they will not last you 10 year or more.  If you are wondering whether or not you need to get a check up for your A/C, you probably do.  There are some things that you can do as the owner of the equipment, but some of the tasks might require a professional.

Checking the filter is the easiest task

Most air conditioner units will come with some sort of air filter.  Basically, the air conditioner needs direct access to fresh air to run properly and if there is a filter inside that is clogged with bugs, dirt, dust and other debris, it will cause problems for the unit.  A good time to check the filter is around the first holiday of the cooling season and in most places that would be Memorial Day.  Using a holiday to mark the occasion where you check the filter is a good way to remember the task year after year.  In most cases, changing the filter once per year is plenty of maintenance for the unit, but in the other cases, it would be smart to hire a professional to come to your home and do a more thorough checkup.

Professional companies offer more than one option

North Pole air conditioning and heating services can stop by the house any number of times per year if you are not comfortable with the maintenance of your unit.  Companies like North Pole air conditioning and heating services will charge a one-time fee if you need maintenance once per year, but sometimes they might offer a plan where you pay once per year and they arrive at regular scheduled times to maintain your equipment.  You might not think that your air conditioner needs to be tuned up each year, but the professionals would disagree with that.  Keeping up on the once per year, every year schedule will keep the costs of the maintenance down and keep your air conditioner running at peak performance all year long.

Outdoor air conditioners get very dirty

If you have a whole house, or central air conditioner unit, you should realize that it will be getting much dirtier than a unit that is mounted inside the wall or put into a window each year.  Coils can get loaded with dirt and dust when the unit is outside and that is where most of the problems start for you in the middle of the hot summer months.  The coils need to be clean to maintain a sufficient amount of performance that is needed during the hot summer months.  One myth about central air units is that they should not be in the sun, but that is not the case.  As long as you have air flow around the unit, it will run well compared to a unit that is crowded by shrubs or other plants.

What does the professional look at during the inspection

Companies like North Pole air conditioning and heating services will come to your home to maintain your central air unit that is mounted outside of your home.  The general inspection will include looking at the indoor coil, outdoor coil, compressor, capacitors and all of the electrical wires that run to and from the unit.  A coil that is dirty or a motor that is overheating can cost you up to 5 percent in overall cooling costs.  Saving that 5 percent for a rainy day is something that everyone should think about when it comes to keeping your home cool and comfortable during the hot summer months in the area where you live.
