Spring weather has rolled into Sumter, SC, which means that summer’s heat and humidity are right around the corner. Now is the right time to schedule your air conditioning maintenance visit for the season. There are many benefits to your comfort and your air conditioner when you keep up with routine AC maintenance and professional tune-ups.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
One of the top benefits of scheduling professional maintenance for your air conditioner is improved indoor air quality. A clean and efficient cooling system maintains appropriate indoor humidity levels. By removing humidity from your home’s air, the air conditioning system reduces mold and mildew growth. Maintenance visits also include air filter cleaning or replacement. The clean air filters do an excellent job of removing bacteria, viruses, dust, dander, pollen and mold spores from the cooled air.
Consistent Indoor Comfort
Properly maintained air conditioning systems do a better job at maintaining consistent temperatures in your home. They also have fewer breakdowns. Routine maintenance visits prevent many air conditioner problems, such as clogged condensate drains and air filters, which could disrupt the flow of cooled and dehumidified air into your living spaces. According to the Indoor Air Quality Association, routine preventive AC maintenance could reduce the risk of a system breakdown by as much as 95 percent.
Lower Utility Bills
Dirty air filters could lower your air conditioner’s energy efficiency by as much as 30 percent. A professional tune-up includes cleaning or replacement of the air filter. This allows the air conditioning system to operate efficiently. When the system doesn’t have to work as hard, it will last longer. Preventive maintenance for your air conditioning system could extend its lifespan, reducing the chances that you will have to spend a lot of money replacing it.
