What Services Might You Need with Air Conditioning Units?

Most homes use Air Conditioning Units to keep them cool. Unfortunately, most homeowners do not properly maintain or care for their units. The reason is simply because most have no idea their units need to be serviced, what services are needed and how often they are needed. If you own an air conditioner, here are some of the services you may need.

Cleaning and Inspection:

Once a year, preferably right before the warm weather hits, you should have your air conditioner inspected and cleaned. Cleaning the unit helps to remove all of the dirt and dust that accumulates on and in it, so it can work efficiently. Inspecting it helps ensure the unit is in working condition. If something needs to be repaired, catching it early and fixing it helps prevent it from becoming a bigger issue, which could ultimately make your unit stop working.

Refrigerant Refill:

Air Conditioning Units rely on refrigerant to cool the air coming into the unit. Air conditioners have a refrigerant tank, which only holds so much refrigerant. As the refrigerant runs out, you may notice your air conditioner running for longer, or the air not cooling down as quickly as it did in the past. This is a sign that you need to have the refrigerant refilled. If you fail to do so, your unit will eventually run out of refrigerant and be unable to cool any air.

Replacing the Filter:

The last service you need done on your HVAC unit is to replace the filter. Most air conditioning manufacturers recommend you have the filter replaced two times per year. This helps keep the air flowing into your home clean, as the filter removes dirt, dust, pollen and other pollutants. If the filter becomes full and is not replaced, your unit will have to use more energy to pull air through a dirty filter, increasing your energy bill, and decreasing the air quality in your home.
