Performing regular Air Conditioning Maintenance on your system can save you money, up to 30% on your utility bill, avoid early breakdowns, extend the life of the system, help it perform at its best and prevent mold from developing in the system.
Replace the air filter every month and use a better A/C Filter, rated at least MERV 8 up to MERV 11. Better filters will stop smaller dust particles and will keep your system free of dust mites, allergens and more. Also dirty filters will cause your unit ruining more time than required to cool your property, this will cost you more money but also will compromise your indoor air quality.
You wouldn’t drive your car 200,000 miles without changing the oil. The same logic holds true for your air conditioning system. Regular maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Pre-season maintenance is also important. It can help to avoid a system failure in severe hot weather when you need it most.
