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.

Had a plumbing issue on a Sunday afternoon. Joey came out and got the problem resolved. He was very courteous, professional and knew exactly what to do.

Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.

Katie D.

Excellent work by all, starting with the ease of making an appointment, the arrival of the service crew in a timely manner. They were on neatly dressed, very pleasant, explained everything and took the little extra steps to make the visit a success. I have used this plumber three times now and have always had exceptional service from them.

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
