Regular maintenance is an essential part of keeping any complex mechanical device working, whether it’s a car, a lawn sprinkler system, or an air conditioner. If you live in a place as warm as Los Angeles, CA, you need to take special care of your air conditioning system, since it does an immense amount of work around the year. A maintenance visit from an HVAC technician once a year (during the spring is the best time) will help see that your air conditioner doesn’t wear down too fast or begin to drain extra energy to do its job.
To schedule annual maintenance for your home’s air conditioning system, call up JW Heating and Air. We offer an excellent Energy Savings Agreement to take care of both your heater and air conditioner.
Can’t I just do maintenance every other year… or when the AC is having problems?
There are two answers to this:
First, unless you want your air conditioning system to break down a few years before its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan while costing more to run, you do need to have it maintained every year. The annual wear and tear on an air conditioner in Southern California is intense, and it’s enough to start reducing the system’s efficiency by 5% each year. It also will age the unit and reduce its lifespan. If you delay air conditioning maintenance more than a year, you’re putting your investment in the system at risk.
Second, if your air conditioning system is experiencing malfunctions and is not working as well as it should, it isn’t time to schedule maintenance… it’s time to schedule repairs. It’s these kinds of problems that maintenance helps prevent. If you have an AC that’s acting up, call for repair technicians, and then afterwards arrange a routine maintenance schedule so you will have fewer repair calls in the future.
