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 Portland pros? Here's what you should know about routine maintenance and why it matters!

Is Ac System Upkeep Really Needed?

Even older a/c unit 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 in uncovering possible issues prior escalating. A seasoned HVAC team in Portland 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 regular 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 1800 Plumber Portland, 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 503-676-3449.

If you discover any kind of early warning signs, it is advised that you quickly reach out to the HVAC company (such as 1-800Plumber Portland). 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.

My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.

We had to have someone come out today due to a sink and toilet leak. Swayze McLauglin was our plumber and he did a great job explaining the problem and how we could get it fixed. He was great at explaining price as well as what he was doing. Swayze was friendly and professional while he was here as well as working in these trying times with COVID-19 he followed all procedures and was great. We will be using yall the next time we need someone. Thank you so much Swayze for all your help!
