It is recommended that you have a professional inspect your air conditioning unit on a yearly basis, ideally before the summer hits and you need to turn the unit on. However, many people wonder what the reasons are for this. Here are five ways that you and your air conditioning unit can benefit from having your air conditioning unit inspected by a professional annually.
Increases the Longevity of the Unit
One of the reasons you will want to have your air conditioning unit inspected by a professional on a yearly basis is because it helps to increase the longevity of the air conditioning unit. Air conditioning units are not cheap to buy or install. As such, you likely want yours to last as long as possible. By having your unit inspected and maintained yearly, you are being proactive and helping your unit last.
Improves the Efficiency of the Unit
The second reason you should have your air conditioner inspected by a professional is that it helps to improve the efficiency of the unit. Ultimately, this helps to decrease the length of time the unit has to run to cool air, helping to keep your cooling costs as low as possible. A professional ensures everything is clean and operating as it should to guarantee your unit is running as efficiently as possible.
Helps to Identify Problems Before They Become Serious
Another reason air conditioners need to be inspected by professionals yearly is because the average homeowner is not equipped to diagnose serious problems with their air conditioner. A professional has the knowledge to do so. This helps them find potential problems that you would likely miss and repair them, ensuring your air conditioner lasts throughout the summer without unexpectedly stopping or dying.
Find and Repairs Leaks
The fourth reason to have your air conditioning unit inspected yearly is so that a professional can find and repair leaks. Air conditioning units run on refrigerant, also called freon. If you have a leak in the tube that carries the freon through the unit, your air conditioner will not be able to cool your home well or at all. A professional will inspect the hoses, looking for signs of leaks. If any are noticed, repairs will be made.
Improves the Accuracy of the Thermostat
Last but not least, you want to have your air conditioner annually inspected to improve the accuracy of the thermostat. Have you ever had the thermostat in your home set to cool to the displayed temperature, but it felt much warmer or cooler than that? A professional can help prevent this scenario and ensure your home is cooled to your desired temperature setting.
