Carrier Tech Inspecting Gauges

Regular air conditioning maintenance provides several benefits, including improved energy efficiency, extended lifespan of the system, improved indoor air quality, and cost savings by catching minor issues before they become major problems. The expert service technicians at Falcon Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing are just the right folks to keep your AC up and running all season long.

What’s the Problem?

Your air conditioning system includes many components that all work together toward creating a comfortable home when the temperatures outside rise. Some of the more common causes of malfunctions are:

  • Not enough refrigerant. This causes your air conditioning system to work harder to produce cool air. Refrigerant is not used up or burned by the system, so if the level is low, it's likely due to a leak or incomplete filling during installation.

  • Dust and grime on the condenser coil. These factors in the outside environment can impede the air conditioning system's efficiency. The layer of dirt on the coil makes it more challenging for the refrigerant to condense back into its liquid form.

  • Drainage issues: When warm air meets the cold evaporator coils of an air conditioning system, condensation occurs, and the water is collected into a drip pan to be drained away from the system. However, if the drain line becomes obstructed, the water can accumulate and back up into the system, covering the evaporator coil in ice and obstructing the functioning of the entire system.

  • Malfunctioning sensors or electrical controls: The proper functioning of the compressor and fan in an air conditioning system depends on the flow of electrical current. Any faulty electrical control that disrupts the flow of power can cause the air conditioning system to stop working effectively. The thermostat also uses sensors to determine when to turn the system on and off. If the sensor is not working correctly, the air conditioning system may stay on continuously or may not turn on at all.

Consistent Professional Maintenance Brings You Benefits

Benefits of a well-tuned air conditioning system include:

  1. Improved Energy Efficiency: Regular maintenance helps ensure that your home’s cooling system operates at its optimal efficiency. Cleaning and inspecting components like filters, coils, and ductwork can enhance airflow, reduce energy consumption, and lower utility bills.

  2. Extended Equipment Lifespan: Systems that receive regular maintenance tend to have a longer lifespan. By addressing minor issues early on and keeping the system clean and properly adjusted, you can prevent major breakdowns and prolong the life of your equipment.

  3. Enhanced System Performance: Annual maintenance allows your service technicians to identify and resolve potential problems before they escalate. This proactive approach helps maintain the system's performance and capacity, ensuring consistent and reliable heating and cooling throughout the year.

  4. Cost Savings: Regular maintenance can help you avoid costly emergency repairs or premature replacements. By addressing minor issues promptly, you can prevent them from developing into major problems that require expensive fixes. Additionally, the improved energy efficiency resulting from maintenance can lead to lower utility bills over time.

  5. Improved Indoor Air Quality: Heating and cooling system maintenance includes cleaning and inspecting components that affect indoor air quality, such as filters, ducts, and coils. Regular maintenance helps remove dirt, dust, allergens, and contaminants from the system, promoting cleaner and healthier indoor air for occupants.

  6. Priority Emergency Service and Discounts: As a maintenance plan member you will receive priority treatment on service calls. We service our policyholders as our priority! Should you ever have a system breakdown, you as a service plan member, immediately become a priority call and will receive the quickest service we can provide.

  7. Discounts: In addition to two maintenance visits per year, one for the cooling system and one for the heating system, you'll receive a 15% to 25% discount on labor and parts for all approved repairs. Such perks can be valuable when unexpected issues arise.

  8. Warranty Compliance: Most HVAC equipment manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep the warranty valid. By investing in an annual maintenance plan, you can fulfill the warranty requirements and ensure that any potential claims will be covered.

  9. Peace of Mind: Knowing that your cooling system is regularly inspected, maintained, and operating efficiently brings peace of mind. When your cooling system is inspected annually by a professional technician, they can identify small adjustments or repairs which will help ward off major problems before they even occur. You can have confidence that your system is less likely to experience unexpected breakdowns or fail during extreme weather conditions. Few things are more inconvenient than a cooling system that stops working during the extreme heat of summer days.

  10. Automatic Renewal: As long as your plan remains active, Falcon will renew it each year and you will not need to requalify your equipment to maintain coverage. If you sell your home, this coverage can be transferred to the new owner.
