Why Maintenance Matters

Dust, debris, low fluids, clogged filters and worn parts make your air conditioning system work harder to cool your home. Estimates indicate that efficiency will decline 5% each year that a home air conditioning system is not serviced. Over a five year period, your system will become 75% less efficient then when it was first installed. This reduced efficiency equates to higher utility bills and less indoor comfort.

Air conditioning maintenance should be performed at least two times each year, normally just before summer and winter. Having your system regularly inspected by a qualified technician can save you money in costly repairs and utility bills.

A/C Tune-Ups

If you don’t know this already, regular maintenance for your heating and air conditioning units is very important. The people who don’t realize this are often those whose systems unexpectedly break down, leaving them without any heating or air conditioning during some of the most uncomfortable times of the year.

For the small amount of money it costs to schedule a professional tune-up, the return on your investment can be huge. Besides helping avoid unexpected breakdowns, tune-ups are important for helping your unit recover lost efficiency, operate more safely, increase the overall lifespan of the unit, improve your overall level of comfort, and reduce your operating expenses. Ideally, your heating and air conditioning system should be inspected at least once a year. Best HVAC offers yearly inspections and tune-ups to keep your system running at peak efficiency.

Remodels and Retrofits

For the most part, every house can be retrofitted for A/C. If the house already has an electric or gas forced-air heating system, adding A/C isn’t that hard and typically can be installed in one day. Where you see trickier applications is if a home has baseboard heat or a boiler where there’s no ductwork, but homes like that are very uncommon in the St. George area. Best HVAC has been doing refits for over 30 years, and we bring that experience with us to every refit project we start. If you’d like to update your home’s heating and cooling systems to be more efficient and better-working then call us today.
