When should you have your a/c unit serviced

When was the last time you had your ac system checked by a specialist? If you have not put much thought into this, it is time to pay attention to your system and put it on a regular schedule. A poorly kept A/C device can invite unwanted health hazards into your house.

The typical lifespan of a unit is around 12 to 15 years, albeit sometimes, they may last longer. How do you get the longer lifespan? You take time to ensure you are on a proper maintenance schedule and stick to it! Developing and knowing your a/c unit upkeep schedule is a must.

The filters and various other parts of your system undergo enormous wear and tear. This begins to impact your system as a whole and will shorten the lifespan. Regular maintenance can slow down this wear and term as well as guarantee the maximum performance of your ac unit. Also, many times, it can boost its lifespan and decrease the chances of an expensive or costly repair

Wondering how often you should call your local Long Island pros? Here's what you should know about routine maintenance and why it matters!

Is Ac System Upkeep Really Needed?

Even older a/c units with damaged electric motors or dirty filters can work by increasing the power. Because of this, many customers do not realize the decline in performance for months and even years. When they do realize it, they end up with sky-high electricity bills

Normal checkups can facilitate uncovering possible issues prior to escalating. A seasoned HVAC team in Long Island will take the actions required to enhance your air conditioner performance as well as its effectiveness.

Depending on the issue, they may change the filters, clean the AC device, add Freon, and conduct additional maintenance (as needed).

A poorly maintained AC unit can also affect your health. Over time, dust and debris can clog the filters and accumulate inside the unit. This may increase your risk of asthma attacks, allergic reactions, and difficulty breathing.

Routine maintenance may help prevent these problems and reduce the frequency of asthma attacks. Furthermore, your air conditioner can decrease indoor humidity, as well as the amount of airborne pollen entering your home. That is if you maintain it properly.

A longer operational life, reduced repair costs, decreased energy costs, and decreased health hazards are all benefits of regularly scheduled maintenance.

Setting up Maintenance: How Often Should You Call the Pros?

Since you have learned the importance of routine ac service; your next question may be "how often should I call"

Preferably, contact your local 1-800-Plumber +Air of Long Island, once a year. We recommend doing a springtime check to ensure your unit is working in time for the summer. Our local office number is 631-371-513.

If you discover any kind of early warning signs, it is advised that you quickly reach out to the HVAC company (such as 1-800-Plumber +Air of Long Island). These red flags may include odd sounds, strange smells, increased electricity costs, and more

Here are a few indicators:

  • Uneven cooling through your house
  • Warm air
  • Weak airflow
  • Mildew like scent
  • Water leakages from the A/C unit

A weak airflow, for example, may indicate problems with the condenser unit, vents, or registers. It may also be due to clogged filters or blocked ducts.

The longer you wait to call for help, the worse it gets. An HVAC professional can check the ductwork, blower fans, and other parts to detect the source of your AC problems.

Emanuel came out to inspect why our commode was not flushing properly. After an inspection he describer the options. Since the commode was over 40 years old we picked the option to replace the commode with a new one. He Asked several questions about what we would like and the showed us two options. We picked the one that we liked and he obtained the commode from the ware house and installed it the same afternoon.. He completed the installation and did a great clean up of the area and answered answered all of our questions. I fully recommend Emanuel and 1-800-Plumber of Pearland

Satisfied Customer

I really appreciated Manolos attitude and the way he had patience for all of my questions and never seemed like he was rushing or annoyed with me. He took the time to reexplain it to my husband when he got home. I didn't feel pressured into spending more money or like he was trying to just sell me stuff. I felt like he really took his time and that I was his priority. Thank you for having great service.
