We hope you’ve arranged to have a routine maintenance tune-up and inspection for your air conditioning equipment. If you haven’t yet, it’s definitely not too late—it’s still spring, and that’s the best time to have this vital job done. Just remember that the Southern California heat will soon settle in, and you want your AC to be ready.
We’ve talked many times before about the benefits of regular professional AC maintenance. If you want some extra incentives to have the job done, here are a few of the maintenance benefits that we haven’t talked about. In fact, many people don’t realize these advantages of this service.
Increase your home’s value
This is a benefit that often surprises people. Maintenance seems like a basic task, but it has many long-term rewards that can make a difference on the value of a house. Potential homebuyers pay close attention to important installations in any house, and the HVAC system is one of the most important and valuable. An HVAC system that’s in great shape thanks to maintenance gives buyers the confidence they won’t have to soon sink money into replacing the system or having it repaired.
Better indoor air quality
Maintenance extensively cleans an air conditioning system to remove all the dust and dirt that can cause motors to wear down and interfere with heat exchange. This also helps to improve indoor air quality, as a dusty and dirty AC will add contaminants into the air. An unmaintained air conditioner can also pick up mold, which is extremely detrimental to healthy conditions indoors!
Benefit the environment
Because an air conditioner uses chemical refrigerant, it can pose environmental risks if not properly cared for. Maintenance not only allows technicians to locate harmful refrigerant leaks, but also to inform you if you have an AC that uses an outdated refrigerant that hurts the environment.
Better balanced humidity
One of the negative effects of a dusty and slowly declining AC is that it will increase humidity issues in a home. This often occurs before you notice that the air conditioning system isn’t keeping the house as cool as it used to. Refrigerant leaks are a source of rising humidity, and maintenance will definitely catch this problem. Maintenance also checks for proper airflow, which is another important tool against imbalanced humidity in the house. High humidity can also lead to mold growth in the AC, and as we already mentioned above, this can hurt your indoor air quality.
