Routine air conditioning maintenance is important for every home in Frederick, Maryland. Scheduling an AC tuneup once a year will yield many notable benefits. Check out these key perks of scheduling regular AC maintenance.
Improved Energy Efficiency
During air conditioning maintenance visits, a service technician will:
- Calibrate the thermostat.
- Check for refrigerant leaks.
- Secure electrical connections.
- Lubricate moving parts.
- Change your filter if needed.
When you don’t have your system calibrated and serviced properly, it uses more energy to operate. These critical tasks all help improve energy efficiency so that your air conditioner will run as efficiently as possible. As a result, you’ll lower your home’s utility bills and enjoy a more eco-friendly home.
Better Indoor Air Quality
When a service technician visits your home for your AC maintenance appointment, he will:
- Remove and clean the blower assembly.
- Clear drain lines and traps.
- Add a condensate pan treatment to help prevent microbial growth.
These tasks ensure that your system won’t be caked in dust, dirt, dander, pollen and other irritants. Regular AC maintenance keeps your air conditioner tidy so your indoor air stays clean and healthy as well.
