Air conditioning system inspections are a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of the hardworking components that keep our homes comfortable and our indoor air quality clean. Florida’s extreme temperatures, humidity, and weather conditions put most HVAC systems to the test on any given day and it’s important to understand how they’re handling the stress. As time and the elements do their worst, air conditioning systems become susceptible to the accumulation of particulate or microbial growth, obstructions around moving parts, clogged drain lines, and lagging performance.
AC inspections shed light on preventive measures and improvements homeowners otherwise might not have seen. These may include:
- Reduced exposure to breakdowns: Often, HVAC professionals find that many repairs could have been avoided had an initial inspection and subsequent servicing occurred. Also, some manufacturers will refuse to honor a warranty if an air conditioning inspection has not occurred on an annual basis.
- Increased efficiency: Struggling system components and units will increase wear and tear on internal components as well as your energy bill. AC systems forced to work harder and left unchecked will not provide the temperatures desired and will ultimately cost more in the long run due to excessive utility costs. Inspections can help homeowners save on average up to 15 -20% of energy costs by faulty components or potential leaks within the AC system.
- Improved indoor air quality: Filtering the air you breathe in your home is one of the main functions of your HVAC system. Leaving the system to work on its own without an inspection may expose the indoor air to increased amounts of dust, microbes, and other particulates. While your system works, it collects the dirt and debris in various cages and components throughout the unit. AC inspections offer technicians the opportunity to remove these possible pollutants from system.
- Enhanced life expectancy of the unit: Many HVAC professionals note that numerous systems fail before they should simply because maintenance and inspections fell by the wayside. Neglecting your AC system can be a costly mistake in the long run if major repairs or new installation has to occur.
