AC Maintenance From Trained Technicians

When you think of how many smaller, less expensive items you spend time and money maintaining, it seems misguided to disregard the maintenance of an appliance so important to the daily operation of your home. While you can live in your home without operational AC, it can be uncomfortable. One of our heating and air conditioner experts is available to maintain your AC unit in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.

Air conditioners are incredibly complex. With the daily operation, it becomes dirty and covered in debris that can eventually wind up inside the unit, which means that your unit will need to be carefully cleaned out regularly. Many homeowners think they can handle their own maintenance without the help of a professional, but if you are not trained to clean your AC unit and free it from debris, you could end up doing more damage than you're preventing.

While much of the need for professional AC maintenance begins with basic cleaning, a trained professional can also ensure that your system isn't exhibiting any uncharacteristic issues. When examining your AC system, an experienced and knowledgeable technician can also catch any problems before they become serious, saving you a substantial amount of time, money, and frustration.

How Often Should I Service My Air Conditioner?

Regular maintenance is essential for keeping your air conditioner running smoothly. Here are some tips to help you determine how often to service your unit:

  • Annual Maintenance: Schedule a professional service at least once a year. This ensures that your air conditioner operates efficiently and helps detect any potential issues early on.
  • Seasonal Checks: Consider having your unit serviced twice a year, especially if you live in a region with extreme temperatures. Pre-season and post-season check-ups can prepare your air conditioner for heavy usage and address any issues that may arise.
  • Self-Checks: Perform regular maintenance tasks yourself, such as changing or cleaning filters every 1-3 months, keeping the outdoor unit clear of debris, and checking for any unusual sounds or odors.
  • Follow Manufacturer Recommendations: Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines for maintenance intervals, which can typically be found in the owner's manual. Following these recommendations ensures that your warranty remains valid and your unit functions optimally.
  • Prompt Professional Inspection: If you notice any issues or a decline in performance, don't hesitate to contact a professional HVAC technician for inspection and repairs. Addressing problems promptly can prevent further damage and ensure the longevity of your air conditioner.

By following these maintenance tips and staying proactive, you can keep your air conditioner in top condition, prolong its lifespan, and maintain indoor comfort efficiently.
