How Often Should i Service My Air Conditioner?
Many people don’t think about their air conditioner until there is an emergency. It’s not until we get home from work to a sweatbox that we think about how important air conditioning is in the St. Louis summer. But many experts would agree that a person should have their air conditioner serviced and cleaned once a year, ideally in the spring before the heat begins to intensify.
For people with an older unit, this can help keep your air conditioner running smoothly throughout the summer. Older units aren’t necessarily the most energy efficient even when running at peak efficiency and can become even worse if it not at peak performance. Air conditioner service can ensure that your unit is working properly, allowing to get as much value as possible before needing to replace the AC.
Even newer units, however, should be serviced once a year. Because these units represent a huge investment, it is wise to make sure it lasts as long as possible. By getting regular service, you can be sure that your air conditioner will last as long as possible and give a homeowner years of comfort.
Regular service can include replacing air filters, checking coils and coil fins, and checking drains. Quickly identifying problems can save a significant amount of money in major repairs. It can also save a homeowner about 15% in energy costs during the summer months. The savings can pay for itself during these hot St. Louis months.
