Improperly or poorly maintained air-conditioning systems can cost the consumer up to 30% more in energy costs than a well-maintained system. In addition to increased energy costs, these poorly maintained systems can cause discomfort, and in some cases, an increased medical cost due to allergies, colds and time lost from work.
When the system is not working correctly, it will be required to run much longer in an effort to maintain comfort conditions within the building. This equates to additional energy consumption as well as unnecessary run times, resulting in a shortened life expectancy for the major components of the cooling system. Performing some simple annual maintenance on your air conditioning system will result in less energy consumed, along with a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment.
Most air conditioning systems consist of three or four major components. They have an air handler, which may be by itself, or may also serve as the air moving equipment for the heating side of the system, a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator coil. All of these components must work with each other in order to deliver comfort at the lowest cost possible.
Some older units can show a significant reduction in operating costs and an increase in comfort levels by being replaced. Some utility companies offer significant rebate incentives for replacement with newer high-efficiency equipment. Consult your local licensed plumbing/heating/cooling professional for more information.
Safety first- Air-conditioning units are powered with voltages up to 220 volts and, if improperly handled, can result in serious injury or death. Be sure to contact your local licensed plumbing/heating/cooling professional for a thorough test and tune.
