Why You Need Air Conditioner Maintenance and Duct Cleaning

May 18, 2015

If you’ve ever paid to have your ducts cleaned by a person or company who was not an HVAC professional, you likely learned what a questionable idea that was. Like the human body, your home’s HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system is a complicated system of interrelated parts. If you’re planning on having your home’s ducts cleaned, consider that air conditioner service and duct cleaning go hand in hand.

First, dirty ducts are linked to inefficient performance of the HVAC system. But having your ducts professionally cleaned is only one step you can take when it comes to improving the efficiency of your air conditioning system. That’s why, as Hillsborough continues to get hotter through the summer months you need to be sure you also get regular air conditioner service each time you have your ducts cleaned. Each part of the AC system should undergo a thorough examination.

Servicing your home’s air conditioning is important because regular maintenance of your air conditioner is preferable to an emergency repair every time. If you consistently procrastinate maintenance, it’s probable that you’ll experience a surprise repair less than a year or two down the line.

So, why is it so important to call in the pros?

When you call on a licensed, bonded and certified HVAC professional, they will take every step to make sure your system is getting the appropriate service to live up to its maximum life with greatest efficiency. This means not only cleaning your ducts, but checking their joints for cracks and leaks. Hand in hand with regular air conditioner service, you can help ensure a much longer life for your HVAC system, and comfort all through the season.
