A reliable air conditioning system makes life comfortable and can save energy, too. The average lifespan of a residential AC unit is 12 to 15 years, but that life expectancy can be drastically shortened without routine maintenance.
What is the difference between HVAC and central heat and air?
Progressive Heating & Air conditioning maintenance involves checking the evaporator and condenser coils for mold and debris, tightening electrical connections and lubricating moving parts to prevent friction and overheating. It includes changing the air filter, which can help reduce pollutants that aggravate asthma, allergies and other health conditions in San Diego.
A faulty evaporator coil can lead to freon leaks, which is a dangerous and expensive problem. A technician can check the refrigerant level and replace it if necessary. He or she can also inspect the blower, clean the evaporator and ductwork and repair any minor issues that can reduce cooling efficiency.
Homeowners should look for HVAC contractors with good customer service reviews and a wide range of services, including duct cleaning, insulation and energy-efficient heating and cooling systems. Some offer a warranty on their work.
