How Air Conditioning Maintenance Saves You Money

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

Opening your energy bills each month is never much fun, particularly in the summer months. In the summer, your air conditioning unit gets a lot of use, but it requires a lot of energy to use. In many cases, homeowners spend about half of their energy bill on cooling costs. But when you schedule regular air conditioning maintenance with a professional technician, you can reduce your monthly costs and your repair and maintenance costs over time.

The Steps of Maintenance

The tasks completed during a professional maintenance visit can greatly improve the state of your system overall. That’s because an annual cleaning and adjustment of your system keeps every part of your unit in top shape, and everything runs more smoothly when the parts are in the best condition possible. Here’s why maintenance is so important.

  • Cleaning – When the parts of your system are too dirty, heat exchange becomes limited, and your system simply cannot run as efficiently as it is designed to. The outdoor coils, for example, are prone to collecting dust, but these must be clean in order to effectively allow heat to dissipate. When these are clean, the refrigeration process can operate as per usual, requiring less energy to do so.
  • Adjustment – Over the span of a year, the parts may move out of place or become loose or bent. A professional knows exactly what to look for when determining what needs adjustment so that the parts can run exactly as expected. This reduces the chances that you’ll need to make repairs throughout the summer months.
  • Inspection – After an inspection, a technician will inform you of whether there is anything wrong with your unit, so that you can schedule repairs now. While major repairs will cost extra, it’s worth it to make repairs now so that you don’t have to deal with a costlier breakdown later on.

Call on the help of the air conditioning experts at Design Air Inc for air conditioning maintenance in Suffern, NY. Our years of experience and training help us to spot problems quickly and make the proper adjustments, and our annual maintenance program can keep your unit running properly for years to come.

Risks You Take if You Don’t Schedule Regular Air Conditioning Maintenance

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

A maintenance visit from a professional to check on your home’s central air conditioner is something to schedule every year, preferably during the spring before the system takes on its heaviest workload. This isn’t a “suggestion” however: it’s something you need to have done if you want your air conditioning system to work its best for as long as it can. If you neglect to have annual maintenance, the consequences for your AC, and therefore your comfort and budget, will be high.

Here are a few of the risks you’ll take if you neglect to schedule air conditioning maintenance in Suffern, NY this spring. Call Design Air Inc today and talk to our maintenance specialists about setting up an appointment to keep these problems from affecting your air conditioner:

Reduction of the system’s lifespan

Studies have shown that an air conditioner that goes without regular maintenance might only reach half its expected lifespan… and probably the low end of that spectrum.  Remember: no repair for an air conditioner costs more than needing to replace it.

Increases in repairs

Without maintenance to clean an air conditioner’s components and make the necessary adjustments and replacements, the system will start to work harder. This stress increases wear and tear and makes repairs a more frequent hassle: burning out motors, failing capacitors, debris-damaged fans, dirty coils. Your repair bills will continue to climb as long as the AC misses maintenance appointments, eventually leading to a costly breakdown.

Lowered energy-efficiency

Another result of an air conditioner with additional stress from lack of maintenance is that the system will drain more power in order to maintain its expected level of performance. You’ll see this reflected on your electrical bills: an AC costs 20% more to run on average if it goes for a year without an inspection and tune-up. The costs will mount the longer maintenance is neglected.

Fortunately, it’s not difficult to arrange for regular air conditioning maintenance in Suffern, NY. If you sign up for one of the Maintenance and Service Agreements from Design Air Inc, we’ll take care of all the work and worry for you. Our agreements include your heating system as well.
