How Can I Get More Years Out of My AC?

How Can I Get More Years Out of My AC

Most people understand how important it is to have a reliable air conditioning unit that keeps their spaces comfortable and controls the temperature effectively. These units are more than just things we buy; they are significant investments that enhance the overall atmosphere and functionality of our environments. The good news is that we can increase the life of our ACs with regularly maintenance.

When you regularly service your air conditioner, you enjoy several benefits including increased life expectancy. One of them is being able to monitor and improve the air quality in your space. This means you and the people in your space can breathe in clean and healthy air that is free from pollutants and allergens. Additionally, regular maintenance helps your HVAC system run more efficiently, which leads to lower energy bill. By addressing small problems early on, routine servicing can also prevent major breakdowns, saving you a lot of money on repairs and replacements.

In summary, investing in regular air conditioner maintenance not only extends the lifespan of your HVAC unit but also gives you better air quality, reduces your expenses, and provides peace of mind, knowing that your system is operating at its best.

How To Take Care Of Your HVAC System

There are, of course, some simple steps property owners and operators can take to maintain a healthy HVAC ecosystem:

  • Regularly change the filter (every three-six months) to improve both system performance and energy efficiency by making the system have to do less work for the same result.
  • Check and clean indoor and outdoor equipment to remove dirt and other debris, especially in street-facing units.
  • Make sure there are no leaks in or around the unit, which could contribute to decreased unit efficiency and ultimately malfunction.
  • Check and replace thermostat batteries, or replace the thermostat with a smart programmable thermostat, which can optimize temperature and unit performance.
  • Inspect and clean water drains to ensure no obstruction is preventing your unit from optimum performance.

The secret for building owners to understand is that an HVAC system is an investment. If the owner of a system invests a small amount of the time and resources regularly, savings can be achieved in the long run through increased energy efficiency, resident satisfaction and improved air quality. Often, property owners look at HVAC preventative maintenance as an upfront expense that can be set aside if needed. But in reality, preventative maintenance is the path to extending the life of the equipment. Pay now or pay later, but paying a little bit now will get a building owner many more years of usefulness out of the equipment.
