How to Prolong the Life of Your Air Conditioner

How to Prolong the Life of Your Air Conditioner

Having your air conditioner cleaned before the hot weather arrives will not only prolong the life of your air conditioner, but will also make it run more efficiently and save you money on your utility bills!

Residents of  St. Joseph and Weston, MO will want to make sure their air

conditioners are working well during the hot August temperatures. An air conditioner repair during August is not preferable to anyone. While we all change the oil in our cars regularly and know that running with clean oil is best for our vehicles, many of us are not in the same habit for our air conditioners. Few of the things you maintain around your house in the Weston, MO region will provide such a good payback as a bi-annual air conditioning/furnace cleaning. Research has shown that cleaning heating and cooling system components (cooling coils, fans and heat exchangers) may improve the efficiency of the system, resulting in a longer operating life, and create energy and maintenance cost savings. The EPA recommends that if you have a fuel burning furnace, stove or fireplace, they be inspected before each heating season for proper functioning and to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning. A twice annual HVAC check and tune up is the answer. All heating and cooling manufacturers recommend regular maintenance on their equipment. Our bi-annual check ensures you maintain your manufacturer’s warranty. Your furnace could appear to be working just fine and a check by a trained HVAC professional could reveal a cracked heat exchanger – a very dangerous situation. Some of the important areas our bi-annual checks cover are the following: • Outside coil is rinsed with water • Air filtration device is cleaned or replaced, depending on the type • Combustion analysis of carbon monoxide and gas to find leaks (very slow leaks are difficult for the homeowner to detect and are potentially dangerous) • Burner efficiency With a bi-annual check and cleaning, there will be less chance of equipment failure, greater efficiency, utility savings, and most of all, peace of mind.
