The importance of regular A/C Maintenance

Forquer Heating and Cooling | The Importance of A/C MaintenanceDuring a hot summer day in Akron, there’s no better escape from the blazing sun and humidity than a nice cool air-conditioned house. What would you do if all of a sudden, your sweet escape slipped away because your air conditioner stopped working? You may slowly begin to think back to a time in April and May where you wished you would have got preventative maintenance.  

The Value of Regular A/C Tune-ups and Cleaning

The concept of preventive maintenance is lost on too many people. Many air conditioning repair jobs would never even take place if people would trust the care of their machines to experts on a regular basis. By having your a/c unit tuned up and cleaned by a professional technician at least once a year, you will keep it in top condition and thereby experience a number of benefits that will save you a lot more money than the cost of the service visit.

Some of the important advantages of getting an a/c tune-up include:

Preventing Future Breakdown Repairs

This is the most obvious benefit. As the technician inspects your air conditioner, they will notice whether any parts are starting to look worn down, loose, or otherwise out of order.

Refrigerant coils that need to be recharged will get it. Filters that need cleaning will be emptied and straightened out. All of this tightening, replacing, and recharging will result in things not breaking suddenly and without warning at the worst possible moment.

Avoiding Rust 

This is less obvious but just as important. Rust is the enemy of functional machines. Regular maintenance includes lubricating moving parts and cleaning everything. That prevents rust from gradually building up to the point where it can stop motors in the middle of a humid summer.

Higher Efficiency, Lower Utility Bill

When a/c machines are tightened up, charged and filled, and especially with intake filters clear of debris, they work more efficiently, using less energy to do the same amount of work. That’s good for the machine itself, but also really good for your wallet.

Improved Safety

Any machine that uses electricity, chemical refrigerants and fast-moving metal parts have a lot of potential for things to get very ugly, and fast, if the wrong screw gets loose. Getting your a/c serviced on a regular basis sharply reduces the chances of you seeing a small disaster unfold on the side of your house.

Longer Service Life

What all of the above adds up to is that by scheduling an air conditioning tune-up and cleaning this spring, and every spring after, you’ll find yourself enjoying your air conditioning all summer, for many more summers than you otherwise would.

Understanding Differences Between Home and Vehicle Air Conditioning System As summer approaches here in the Akron and Canton area, residents are preparing for the summer heat by making sure their home air conditioning units are in good shape. By late June, with temperatures pushing up into the 80s, area air conditioners will be running steadily.

When you think about your air conditioner, you probably only think about it in terms of temperature control. Sure -- on a hot summers day in Akron, who isnt grateful for their air conditioner and the relief that it can provide? Many people, however, dont realize that an a/c has another, very important job: controlling the humidity of your home (and we all know how humid Akron can get). As air is sucked into the vents, moisture is removed from the air, bringing down your houses overall humidity level. This not only provides you with comfort and helps to keep your utility bills down, but it can also help keep you healthy. How does your homes humidity level affect your health? Well, there are a lot of unhealthy things that can exist inside your home. Mites, fungi, viruses, bacteria and other harmful substances can enter your home, and many of these substances can thrive if a home is too humid. This is why maintaining an optimal humidity level of between 30% and 60% in your home is a crucial
