As warmer weather approaches this year, many of us will still be stuck indoors. Now is time to get your air conditioning ready for a hot summer in central Ohio. Before you consider tinkering with the AC unit yourself, consider the benefits of professional attention to your air conditioning system.
Best Time for AC Service
After being idle all winter, air conditioning units should be serviced each spring. If you don’t do this, your unit could break down just when you need it or not giving you the cooling power that you need. Get your AC serviced before you need to use it every day and before the rest of the community calls your AC maintenance service all on the same hot summer day in Columbus.
Benefits of Professional AC Service
When you call a professional to service your air conditioning system, the job gets done right. Your AC will not fail on the hottest day of the summer and you will save money all summer long. Running your air conditioning costs money and a poorly maintained AC system costs more than one that has been properly serviced and maintained. A reliable rule of thumb is that you will get a 30 percent savings on electricity use when an AC system that is in good repair and routinely maintained.
An additional benefit of having a professional fix and maintain your AC system is that it will not break down and require you to spend money that you don’t have in order to install a new HVAC system! The professional who does your AC work will know what to do, what parts to use, and will not run up the cost by a lot of trial and error. Although a professional AC service may charge more per hour, the overall cost of labor will be less because the job gets done faster and does not require repeated follow up visits! And, a properly maintained AC system will be less likely to give you problems in the future, which is another cost savings. Improperly maintained HVAC systems eventually break down and need extensive repairs or replacement. Having someone without the experience and knowhow that you need to your AC repairs and services is, in fact, pennywise and pound foolish. Be smart and be thrifty. Use a pro to fix and maintain your AC in Columbus or anywhere in central Ohio.
A Professional Will Fix and Maintain Your Entire HVAC System
When your AC is not cooling at all, you may be pleased when the repair person simply charges you for adding coolant. But, one of the many benefits of professional attention to your air conditioning system is that he or she knows and understands the entire HVAC system. For example, clogged or dirty air filters and ductwork make your AC less efficient. Doing part of the job can be worse than not doing the job at all in this case. When you don’t hire a pro to check out your HVAC system there will often be important issues that are missed, continue to make your AC less efficient, and that will cost you more money in the long run. As an example, when blocked ducts and air filters make your AC blower motor work harder and hasten the time when it will burn out or wear out. With a properly maintained system (the entire system), you can expect the motor to last for years.
