  • Annual A/C Service Maintenance and Repair can Improve Indoor Air Quality

    June 4, 2012

    Air conditioning is one of those everyday provisions we never think about until it fails. When that happens, it is time to seek out a qualified AC service. The quality of living or working indoors can be dramatically affected if the air-conditioning system is not functioning properly, or at all. Feeling comfortable when indoors is not just a luxury, but oftentimes a necessity for staying healthy, or getting work done.

    Indoor air quality enriches our lives, and makes living inside our homes and offices bearable during the hot days of spring and summer. An efficiently operating air-conditioning unit can remove nearly all humidity in the air as it cools it down, making it easier for us to breathe and function. Typically, during the hot summer months, the humidity level outside can reach nearly 100%. On these humid days, the air conditioner can improve the quality of air by reducing humidity levels inside to a comfortable 60% to 65%.

    Wear and Tear

    Because an entire AC system is a functioning machine, over time running it will cause considerable wear and tear on the essential components of the air-conditioning unit. With lots of moving parts, there may be issues with the air handler, the chemical refrigerant, the coil, the copper tubing, electrical components, thermostat, compressor and other parts. Running for long stretches at a time, the cool air demand during extremely hot days can tax the AC system beyond its abilities. When that happens, you need to seek out a quality AC service to handle the repairs or replacement of your air conditioner.

    Professional Inspection and Repair

    A qualified AC service staffed with experienced technicians will offer full services of air-conditioning installation, repair and maintenance. Many will provide 24-hour service for air-conditioning emergencies, along with same-day service. If you are retired, seek out companies that offer senior citizen discounts as a way to offset the cost of repair or replacement. With the knowledge and expertise of highly trained technicians, you will find affordable solutions designed to fit any budget, to get your air-conditioning unit up and running again.

    It is always important to have the right person do the right job, to ensure that it is performed correctly. Having your air-conditioning unit inspected, installed, repaired or maintained by a licensed professional that guarantees their work can keep you in a cool environment through the hot summer days. Consider having your air-conditioning unit inspected at least once or twice each year by a licensed AC service to ensure it will operate properly throughout the entire hot season.
