The Importance of AC Maintenance

Why is Air Conditioning Maintenance Important?

The central air system built inside of your home is a complex combination of parts and energy sources that work together in delivering air conditioned air to the temperature you want. Indoor temperature plays a major role in your levels of home comfort which is why caring for your air conditioner is crucial. This is why we’re sharing the importance of AC maintenance.

The moment the performance of your air conditioner drops, home comfort plummets causing problems that could easily have been avoided. One of the common reasons for poor AC performance levels is usually due to lack of maintenance.

How Your Air Conditioning System Works

Inside of your home, all you may see is the thermostat and the temperature at which you want your air conditioned. However, the moment you turn your thermostat on, it ignites a series of operations that conditions the air inside of your home to the desired temperature.

First, the air supply inside of your home is sucked in through a vented register and sent to the furnace. The furnace is responsible for both heating and air conditioning. After air has been conditioned, it travels through a network of ducts, commonly found in the attic of your home and dispenses itself through vents in each room. Though the procedures of collecting indoor air and distributing conditioned air are simple, the actual conditioning of air is a highly evolved routine.

Once the indoor air supply reaches the furnace, it travels through an air filter that strains the air of airborne particles and pathogens. While these particles are captured in the filter, the cleaned air is pushed through the furnace by the blower motor to be conditioned. Air then travels through the evaporator coils. The evaporator coils receive compressed refrigerant from the compressor, which is found outside your home.

The compressed refrigerant then cools the evaporator coils, which causes the air to cool as it passes through

Avoiding AC Maintenance Causes Bigger Problems

Because the air conditioning process is one connected course, the imbalance of one of these parts in any of these stages results in air that either has not been conditioned to the temperature you want or lack of conditioned air. The result of regular use along with vibration, voltage fluctuations, temperature swings, dirt, grass clippings, and insects take a toll on your system. We have found that over 50% of our a/c service calls last year were due to lack of regular maintenance.

Caring for your Air Conditioner Means Long-lasting Performance

Because some homeowners generally expect AC maintenance to be a great hassle, they avoid it altogether until their air system completely stops working. At Service Champions, we understand the importance of your time and we make sure to always show up on time during your scheduled visit.

Enduring a hot day at home with a broken air conditioning system can be avoided with regular AC maintenance.

Regular AC maintenance is a far better investment in the long run. This not only prevents unexpected malfunctions, it helps extend the lifespan of your air conditioner which eliminates the need for a new system in the future and will help your ac system run more efficiently saving you money on energy costs.
