Can you guess what the most overlooked detail in your home is? Believe it or not, it’s your central air conditioner! Known to be a staple of any space in Southern Florida, this unit needs to be repaired from time-to-time — and you might not be aware of when your AC is in need of some serious TLC. Not sure when you should schedule a repair, still? We’re here to explain:
It Preserves your Unit
Just as important as spotting a leaky faucet, it’s important to address an air conditioning repair as soon as possible. Believe it or not, when an AC unit isn’t repaired as quickly as possible, it can then take a toll on the overall unit’s lifespan. Of course, just like anything else, you’ll want your central air conditioner to last for quite some time — but if neglected, it may need to be replaced instead of repaired, which can be rather costly.
If you’re not sure whether your unit needs to be repaired or not, then it’s important to schedule central air conditioning maintenance, regularly, with Cousin's Air, Inc.! Not only will we inspect it thoroughly, but we’ll make sure that you won’t run into any potential problems down the road!
Of course, if you do indeed neglect your unit, it could then suffer some irreversible damages such as not being able to cool your home, using an excessive amount of energy, and just breaking down completely. If you’re looking to save money on this investment piece, then it’s wise to take the time and have the repair made — even if you feel that your unit is functioning properly, it’s still important to schedule maintenance appointments every few months.
Keeps it Functioning Properly
Sometimes when you neglect maintenance on your unit, it will ultimately take a toll on its overall functionality. As mentioned earlier, this could range from not being able to cool down your home to using a surplus of unnecessary energy — and more.
When you have a central air unit, just like a vehicle, you want to keep it running like a well-oiled machine. That means that you change their air filter (when needed) and pay close attention to all noises that the unit makes when in use. If any of these features/sounds are ignored, then you’ll have a serious issue on your hands.
If you happen to notice that your unit needs minor repairs here and there, then it might be wise to keep a log of what happened to your central air and when the issue was resolved. This will be extremely helpful in determining what is causing specific matters and of course, will let you know when you need to have your unit repaired (or replaced) if required.
Will Keep Costs Down
Believe it or not, using a central air unit that isn’t functioning correctly will ultimately result in higher energy bills each month. Regardless of what you know about your unit, think of the unit as the human heart — while the vents are the veins in the body. Just like a blockage in the arteries of the heart, if the main source of power on the unit begins to slow down, then the air won’t be evenly distributed throughout the house (just like blood traveling through the veins).
Now, if there’s a blockage in the ducts (veins), then it could cause the central hub of the unit (the heart) to push much harder to transport everything — which uses much more energy than what’s needed.
To save money on your energy bill, you’ll want to schedule routine maintenance visits from Cousin's Air, Inc. to not only protect your investment but to make sure that it runs smoothly (while using a reasonable amount of energy) when doing its job.
Protects your Home
Fact: if your unit goes into overdrive, then there is a possibility that it could negatively affect other parts of your home. If that’s the case, then it could be quite the dangerous factor. When your unit is properly looked after and functions correctly, then it will do its job — while leaving other details of your home (we’re looking at you, electricity) untouched.
If you want to take preventative measures and protect not only your unit, but your home, then it’s important not to ignore any repairs that need to be made. You’ll not only thank yourself in the long run — but your unit will last quite a long time, and will indeed live up to its investment value
