Air conditioning maintenance

By: Winston Petrey

If you recently had a new AC system installed you may think that maintenance is not needed. There are actually many reasons that you should get yearly air conditioning maintenance. It can save you a good amount of money in the long run. It can also lower the chances that you may need emergency repairs at a later date. It doesn’t matter if you used us for your air conditioning system installation or not, we can perform your regular maintenance at an excellent value.

What air conditioning maintenance entails

When you give us a call, we will walk you through exactly what our maintenance services encompass. In general it means we will inspect all components of your AC, clean the coils and other parts that have dust and debris buildup, conduct minor repairs or replace parts.

Improve efficiency

A big benefit of annual AC maintenance is that your unit will be kept running at optimal efficiency. Even if you have a newer system, the performance will slowly drop over time due to everyday wear and tear. You may not notice the dip in performance at first but you will be paying a little more each year for the same level of comfort.

When you decide to have regular maintenance performed, any components that have excessive wear can be replaced before they impact the performance of your system. If you neglect your system, it is much more likely that you will need AC repairs in the near future.

Prolonging the life of your air conditioner

Not only will you keep your energy usage down, annual maintenance can help to lengthen the life of your air conditioning unit. When one component is worn out, it will put a strain on the other parts of the system. This can lead to deterioration of the entire unit which causes it to run inefficiently and results in a shorter useful life.

Keeping costs down

By having maintenance done yearly, you will see that your energy bills stay consistently low and that you need fewer emergency repairs during the life of your system. These savings can make up for the affordable fee of an annual maintenance visit. At Mountaineer we schedule your maintenance visits at a time that is convenient for you while emergency repairs are usually done at a time that is not.

Not too late

It is never too late to begin a regular AC maintenance program. It doesn’t matter how old or new your system is, you can always benefit from our maintenance services. You may be surprised at the difference in how your air conditioner runs after a simple tune up.

Even the most high tech and efficient systems slowly deteriorate over time. The drop in performance is very gradual so you may not notice it. It’s very important that you call Mountaineer to discuss our AC maintenance programs. See what we can do for you today.
