AC Maintenance in San Jose
Breathe Freely and Maintain Ideal Temperatures in Your Home or Business
Oftentimes, we take our air conditioners for granted, but they play an important role in maintaining ideal temperatures as well as good air quality in a building. Air conditioners circulate filtered, clean air throughout a building. The clean air that the machine circulates reduces the levels of pollen, mold, dust, bacteria, mildew, and other airborne allergens that can contaminate the air in a building. A functional air conditioner creates a healthier environment where you can breathe freely.
Most experts recommend that your HVAC system be checked by a professional at least once a year. If you have a heat pump system that you use year-round, however, a maintenance service should be performed every six months. During this visit, the HVAC technicians at Aquinas HVAC Inc. can check and replace your furnace filter if needed.
An HVAC tune-up includes inspection, cleaning, and servicing. The extent of the services we perform will depend on whether or not we notice any issues during the inspection. We will examine the heater’s exterior and ventilation system for concerning signs of wear and tear. We will also examine the interior components of the furnace and look for signs of damage.
Why Is AC Maintenance Important?
HVAC maintenance is a small investment that can make a major difference in the indoor experience of your home or building. These are some of the reasons you should schedule regular AC maintenance as recommended, which is typically once a year:
- Saving money
If parts of your HVAC system are damaged and neglected for a long period of time, it might break down entirely, which will end up costing you more money. AC maintenance is an upfront cost that can prevent more extensive costs in the future. Scheduling regular maintenance for your AC can also reduce your energy bills and extend the life of your system.
Preventative maintenance will help ensure that your system runs as close as possible to peak efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, this could save you up to 30% on your energy bill. Furthermore, some HVAC manufacturers require proof of annual maintenance when a repair claim is submitted under warranty. It is important to keep record of your maintenance visit in case you need to file a warranty claim in the future.
- Improving indoor air quality
If the air quality in your home or building is poor, you might be exposing your family or visitors to a range of health risks without even realizing it. According to the EPA, health effects associated with indoor air pollutants include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, as well as headaches, dizziness, fatigue, respiratory diseases, heart diseases, and even cancer in some cases. Regular AC maintenance is a great way to improve the indoor air quality of your home because it takes the following precautions:
- Cleaning and replacing the air filter -- This keeps dust from entering the heating and cooling system because the air that circulates through the building flows through the filter first. If the filter is dirty, the air will be dirty as well.
- Cleaning the air ducts – Over time, dust and debris can build up in the ductwork of a building and add to the irritants in the air.
- Repairing parts as needed – The professional, friendly, and experienced HVAC technicians at Aquinas HVAC Inc. will be able to thoroughly examine the AC unit and look out for common issues like water leaks, refrigerant leaks, frozen evaporator coil, failure of electric control, and AC fan failure. If these parts are left unchecked, your system will not be able to regulate the humidity levels in the home. This can contribute to toxic biological growth.
