Should I Have Regular AC Services?

Posted on: March 17, 2014

Having regular AC services performed can save you both time and money. Reoccurring maintenance will help keep your unit clean and functioning at an optimal level. Without it, your system is prone for producing allergens, experiencing problems with the airflow and breakdowns. At Midway Services, we strongly encourage our Clearwater customers to have regular AC service performed on heating and cooling systems.

Prevent Breakdowns

During regularly scheduled AC service, a technical will inspect the system to ensure everything is working properly. This will help keep all of the parts working efficiently and raise awareness for any problems or concerns. The service should include:

  • Proper Cleaning of Condenser Coils
  • Oiling Fan Motors
  • Check-Ups of:
    • Belts
    • Operating Pressure and Temperature
    • Amp Draw
  • Adding Freon (if necessary)

Condenser coils take the heat from your home and blow it outside. Dirt buildup on the coils prevents the air from flowing properly, leaving warm air stuck in your house. This means that your AC will have to run harder to keep it just as cool, which will affect your electric bill! Cleaning the condenser coils not only helps the air stay clean, but it also cools and saves you money. Keep your coils clean with regular AC services in Clearwater.

Prevent Allergies and Maintain Efficiency

Replacing the filters in your system is essential for keeping your home’s air clean. A dirty filter can blow dust, mold, and other debris into the air which can cause allergies. When dirt clogs up the filter, it also slows the efficiency of your system. Air is unable to pass through properly causing your unit to work harder. When a unit isn’t regularly maintained, the efficiency can decrease up to 5%. This causes a spike in your electric bill and also in the allergens floating around your home.
