AC Maintenance in Baton Rouge, Denham Springs Louisiana and Surrounding Areas
Without regular AC maintenance, an air conditioner loses about 5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation. The good news is that you can recover most of that lost efficiency through regular maintenance. Studies show that with regular tune-ups a unit will maintain up to 95% of its original efficiency. This means that the cost of an annual tune-up is recovered very quickly in savings on your monthly electric bill and reduced repair costs. A properly serviced air conditioner will also do a better job of dehumidifying your home.
Freon Levels in AC Units
One of the most important items to check is the coolant level (commonly known as Freon) in the air conditioner. A system that is only 10% low on coolant will cost about 20% more to operate! The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) recommends that coolant levels be checked every year.
Annual Air Conditioning Tune-Ups
No matter what the age of your air conditioner, you can improve energy efficiency by keeping it in good working order. Schedule an annual tune-up by one of our qualified service technicians. This can reduce your air conditioning costs by five percent (5%)–and it’s the best maintenance plan for your home comfort.
Central Air Conditioner System Routine Maintenance
All equipment, even the most reliable, needs routine maintenance. Complicated equipment like today’s air conditioners and heaters benefit in many ways from annual service. AC units recover much of their lost efficiency, they are less likely to suffer a major break down, they have a longer lifespan, they increase your comfort, and they operate for less money.
Prevent AC System Failure through Regular Maintenance
Small problems may escalate into big ones that cost a homeowner a large unexpected expense. AC maintenance is essential to prevent your air conditioning and heating system from using more energy than necessary, to keep the system efficient in doing its intended job, and to prevent early equipment failure. Any situation where maintenance has been delayed now is a great opportunity to bring your system up to operating at its best efficiency point with a routine annual inspection.
