Spring Air Conditioner Maintenance
From your Trusted Plumbing and Heating Expert in Vancouver
With a chilly breeze still in the Vancouver forecast, your air conditioner is probably the last thing on your mind. But in just a few short months, summer will be here in full swing. During the hot summer months, many of us rely on our air conditioners to provide comfort in our homes.
So the question then becomes, how often should you get your air conditioner inspected?
We recommend having air conditioner maintenance performed once a year – ideally at some point during the spring. This will ensure your air conditioner is operating at its optimum efficiency and is ready to cool your home when the time comes.
Here are some other benefits of having spring air conditioner maintenance performed.
Increase Energy Efficiency
Over the course of a season, your air conditioner can become clogged with dust and debris. This can really impact how well your system operates. Inefficiency can result in higher energy bills and more frequent repairs.
Did you know that a yearly maintenance check by a licensed technician can reduce your monthly energy bill by 15%? Not to mention, your technician will be able to find and address any small issues through the regular inspection. If these problems were left unnoticed, they could grow into larger, more expensive issues.
Improve Air Quality
Spring is known for sunshine, blossoming flowers, and unfortunately, allergies. If your air conditioner has an older filter, pollen can get trapped in your ducts. Additionally, mold, bacteria, and dust can affect the quality of air in your home. An air conditioner inspection in the spring will ensure your filters are new and your ducts are clean.
