Why is AC maintenance important?
AC maintenance is important because it helps to keep the Air Conditioning unit in good operational condition.
For example, if the AC is not maintained properly, it will eventually break down and stop working. This can lead to a lot of problems such as high energy bills or a blistering hot home over summer.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
Like furnaces that break down on the coldest night of the year, an air conditioner is more than likely to fail on the hottest day of the year. This summer’s heat waves have been punishing for AC units, especially those that are poorly maintained.
Your air conditioner’s gas pressure needs to be monitored at regular intervals to ensure there are no refrigerant leaks. Evaporator and condenser coils also need to be regularly inspected for cleanliness and good air flow, and the furnace filter and ductwork should be kept reasonably clean. Obviously the best time for all this is early spring, but all too often these things are simply ignored until trouble arises.
An Ounce Of Prevention
Ideally you want to forestall these problems by having your AC system checked at the beginning of each season. This typically only takes an hour’s labour charge, and any additional materials needed are charged on top of the nominal labour charge (such as refrigerant, which is charged by the pound).
Signs of trouble for your AC unit
If your air conditioner runs for extended periods, running up your electricity bill while failing to adequately cool the house, there are a few possible causes. For instance, the refrigerant pressure might be too low. If the system needs repeated recharging, it indicates a leak that must be corrected.
Alternatively, a lack of good airflow over the evaporator coil can cause it to freeze solid, especially in conditions of higher humidity. When this happens, the system must be shut down overnight to give the evaporator a chance to thaw and dry out. Meanwhile, that air flow problem must be corrected.
The first order of business in that case is a simple DIY: check the filter and install a clean one if needed. Other causes of air obstruction will have to be dealt with by a qualified technician. When your air conditioning makes any sound it’s not supposed to, stop running the unit and have it investigated. Watch out for things like a noisy outdoor unit, or duct noise such as whistling. When the airflow is obstructed, the system will pull air through whatever tiny seams it can, often causing a whistling sound.
