Winter’s chill is finally starting to exit our area, and while we still have cool nights, it won’t be long before you’ll be switching on the AC. One of the most frustrating experiences any homeowner can have is switching on the heating or cooling only to find that it isn’t working. And of course, this typically happens on the hottest or coldest day thus far. A great way to avoid this scenario and get ready for summer heat is to schedule your ductless cooling system for maintenance with your Ideal Services Heating & Cooling specialist. How does maintenance help get your ready for the warm season? We’ll explain more below.
Better Energy Efficiency
One of the benefits of owning a ductless AC system is the energy efficiency the system offers. However, your system won’t be as efficient as you expect it to be if you operate it with last year’s wear and tear. During your maintenance appointment, the technician will clean, adjust and lubricate the various components in your ductless system, including the blowers. This allows the system to work optimally, which helps the system maintain its high energy efficiency.
Maintenance helps prevent repairs in the following ways:
- The thorough inspection
- Cleaning, adjusting and lubricating
The thorough inspection allows the technician to discover any existing or developing problems, and manage them before they can become big issues. Additionally, small repair issues like frayed wiring and loose fan belts are attended to before they can blossom into larger problems. The cleaning, adjusting and lubrication removes any dirt and dust that have accumulated on the components; dirt and dust can interfere with instrumentation and cause malfunction. Lubrication is very important for moving parts; lack of lubrication can cause parts to grind, especially if they are covered in dirt and dust.
Extends Life of the System
It isn’t hard to prematurely age your air conditioning system, and maintenance helps avoid this. How? Maintenance keeps your AC system in good working order year after year, which helps increase longevity.
Don’t be stuck without cooling on our first hot day because of a lack of maintenance.
