The importance of regular A/C Maintenance

Forquer Heating and Cooling | The Importance of A/C MaintenanceDuring a summer day, 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 a/c, 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 has 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.

Dirty air conditioner filters come with hidden dangers that you may not be aware of. These dangers can cause harm to your health, wealth and the safety of your own home. Keeping a clean air conditioner air filter can save your family from unwanted illnesses and even better - save you money! The Dangers of a Dirty Filter A dirty air conditioner filter can flare up your allergies. Dirty air filters can cause numerous physical symptoms such as tightness in your chest, fatigue, headache and cold symptoms that youre unable to get rid of. When an air conditioning filter accumulates dirt on the cooling coils, it allows frost to accumulate on the coils and the fans, which makes it difficult for the unit to cool your house. If your filter is dirty, you can expect that the air you breathe in is dirty too. When you dont clean your filter youll also have dirty air ducts. The unit will disperse nothing but dust, dirt and allergens in your home. A dirty air filter means that your air conditioner

Living in Ohio, you know how inconsistent the temperatures outside can be. One day, the air conditioner is up full blast and the next its off completely. It can be hard to keep your house at a regulated temperature that is comfortable for the entire family, especially if youre only turning your AC on the day of high temperatures. So, how do you prepare your AC for those hot summer days? Prepare for Hot Temperatures the Night Before If youve checked the weather and you know a hot day is approaching, you can prepare by turning your air conditioner on the night before. Unlike your car, your entire home needs time to get the temperature down to a comfortable setting. Avoid overworking your AC by turning it on the night before hot temperatures approach. This will give your unit enough time to cool down your home. The Set It and Forget It Rule If you havent already, we recommend investing in a Nest learning thermostat or a smart thermostat.

If you are strapped for cash, replacing your air conditioner may be out of the question. You may be thinking you can get away with fixing a leak with Freon R-22, but now youre appalled when you are faced with the price tag that goes along with it. Why is Freon R-22 so expensive? The reality is you are a victim of supply and demand due to the shortage of Freon R-22. You see, nearly 30 years ago the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) ruled that Freon R-22 should be phased out as it contains ingredients that have been shown to deplete the ozone. Since then the EPA has gone on to ban the manufacturing of air conditioners charged with R-22. Additionally, in 2010 they reduced the production of R-22 by 75% and then reduced it further in 2015 to 90%. But that is the least of our worries here in 2017, because in 2020 they will cease all production of R-22. After that only recycled R-22 will be used to service air conditioners. With demand for R-22 growing and production of R-22 on the verge
