Why Do I Need AC Maintenance?

By Hi Tech Plumbing And Air

Your air conditioning system is one of the hardest working machines in your home. One way that you can make sure it continues to work hard for you is by treating it to some well-deserved AC maintenance twice a year. After all, how else are you going to stay warm through cold winters and cool during hot summers?

It might not always seem necessary, but that’s why we’ve written this blog post. To explain just how essential maintenance is for your air conditioning unit.


An efficient HVAC unit is essential because it will run better and more effectively while also saving you money on your energy bills. Efficiency is one of the main reasons we recommend regularly scheduled maintenance for our customers. A seasonal schedule works best for your unit, so set up appointments in the spring and in the fall, just before you’ll use your system the most.

During a service appointment, your technician will do the following:

  • Inspect the system from head to toe
  • Clean the coils and fans
  • Replace old air filters
  • Check for refrigerant leaks
  • Make sure your thermostat is correctly calibrated

Additionally, if your technician notices that something is broken or not working correctly, they can provide a solution or make a repair right there.


If anyone in your home has major allergies, then maintenance is even more vital for you. Contaminants like first, dust, bacteria, and mold all make their homes in your HVAC system, and a regular system check will help to keep these spaces clean and clear.


One of the best parts about regular maintenance is that it will extend the lifespan of your system! Just like with any product you own, the better you care for it, the longer it will last!
