When Should I Schedule AC Maintenance Service?
The best time to call out a technician from Kyzar Air Conditioning is during the spring, before the extreme temperatures of summer hit. This tune-up will ensure the system is ready to operate at maximum capacity consistently. It will also allow you to identify and address any potential issues early on, so you can avoid breakdowns and emergency repairs during the hottest months of the year.
Prepping for summer aside, it’s also recommended to have your AC system checked at least once a year regardless of the season. This is especially important in Florida, where heavy use and high humidity can take a toll on the major appliance. Regular maintenance checks will help prolong the life of your AC and ensure it is always operating at peak efficiency.
It’s also imperative to call out a tech at the first sign of trouble. While it may be tempting to wait in the hopes that the issue will resolve itself, chances are it will only get worse. That means in addition to scheduling an annual tune-up, ideally during the springtime, you should call out a technician if you notice any of the following:
- Higher than normal electricity usage for no apparent reason;
- Significantly poorer indoor air quality at your home or business;
- Strange sounds coming from some component of the AC system;
- Pooling water around some component of the AC system; or
- Poor communication between the thermostat and the AC system (i.e., the system fails to turn on when the interior temperature rises or fails to turn off once the temperature drops to the predetermined setting).
Why Is It So Important to Stay on Top of AC Maintenance?
Scheduling AC maintenance service at least once a year is vital for both residents and business owners. Here are some of the biggest reasons why:
- More Energy Efficiency: A well-maintained AC system consumes less energy, which means lower electricity bills for you. By scheduling regular service, you’ll ensure your unit is running as efficiently as possible, helping you save money in the long run.
- Better Indoor Air Quality: Having a technician come out and service your air conditioner at least once a year will help keep critical components clean. This, in turn, will prevent dust, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants from accumulating within the system and then being circulated throughout your home.
- Extended Lifespan: By staying on top of AC maintenance, you can extend the lifespan of your system, saving you from having to replace it prematurely.
- Fewer Emergency Repairs: Ideally, if you maintain your air conditioning system properly, you won’t ever face any cooling emergencies. Of course, since there are no guarantees in life, you may have to call out a technician for an emergency at some point. Such calls should be few and far between, though, if you stay on top of annual service visits.
- More Comfort: A well-maintained AC system will provide consistent and optimal cooling, ensuring that your home or business remains comfortable during even the hottest months of the year.
Residential Vs. Commercial AC Maintenance
AC maintenance service is essential for both residential and commercial properties. While the basic services are similar, there are some key differences between the ongoing maintenance needs of each type of system. Read on to learn what they are.
Residential AC Maintenance Service
- Filter Replacement: Filters should be checked monthly and replaced as needed. They typically need to be replaced every 30 to 90 days. This is usually done by the homeowner. A technician will be happy to show you how to check the filter and replace it.
- Condenser and Evaporator Coil Cleaning: The coils should be cleaned at least once a year to ensure efficient operation.
- Duct Inspection and Cleaning: Ducts should be inspected for leaks at least once a year and cleaned as necessary to maintain optimal airflow.
Commercial AC Maintenance Service
- Filter Replacement: Commercial AC systems often require more frequent filter changes due to increased usage and dust accumulation. A technician will be happy to show you and your team how to check the filter and replace it.
- Coil Cleaning and Inspection: Due to the larger size and complexity of commercial AC systems, coil cleaning and inspection should be performed more frequently.
- Duct Inspection and Cleaning: Just like residential systems, ducts should be inspected for leaks and cleaned as necessary. Depending on the nature of the business, they may need to be cleaned fairly often because airborne contaminants can accumulate quickly inside the ducts.
- System Controls and Calibration: Commercial AC systems typically have more complex controls, which should be inspected and calibrated during routine maintenance to ensure optimal operation and maximum efficiency.
