Need for Annual Air Conditioner Maintenance

air conditioner maintenanceSummertime temperatures in southern New Jersey can easily exceed 80 degrees on any given day, so it’s vital to have a reliable air conditioner system to keep you cool and comfortable to beat the heat. An optimally functioning air conditioner doesn’t come without a cost, though, and that cost is regular maintenance. Your HVAC system is an integral part of your home, and without proper upkeep, you can find yourself suffering in the sweltering heat. The highly-trained technicians of Clay’s Climate Control are sharing why annual air conditioner maintenance is necessary for any residential home.

Benefits of Annual AC Maintenance

Our experts recommend annual AC maintenance to keep your home cool and comfortable. Below we highlight some of the top advantages New Jersey homeowners can receive when they maintain their air conditioner system with a certified Clay’s technician.

Fewer Repairs

The last thing you want to deal with in the middle of the summer is a broken AC system. Malfunctions can be a thing of the past when you regularly service your unit. Scheduling a springtime maintenance visit can ensure your system is up and running when the hot weather hits. During an AC maintenance service, our technicians will diagnose any issues within your system before they get worse, avoiding a costly breakdown.

Lower Utility Bills

With regular maintenance, your system will be running more efficiently, saving you money in the long run. By replacing a clogged air conditioner filter, you can lower your cooling costs by about 15%!

Maintain Consistent Comfort

During an air conditioner maintenance service, your technician also thoroughly cleans and lubricates every component within your system. Removing dirt and debris from the evaporator coil allows the refrigerant to pull more heat from your home’s indoor air. After sufficient cleaning, your air conditioner will work better, and we guarantee you will be consistently comfortable all summer long.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Dirt, dust, and debris are prone to collecting within your unit. Without proper maintenance, this debris can make its way into your home through the duct system. These irritants can lead to health issues, like asthma and allergies, and unpleasant odors drifting through your house.

Longer AC Lifespan

You rely on your AC system year after year, and it’s a huge investment within your home. As with any investment, it’s essential to keep it working to save money and avoid failure. The average lifespan of many air conditioners is between 10 and 15 years. Your AC will experience 50–85% fewer repairs over its lifetime when you hire a professional to maintain your unit.

5 Things to Do Before Turning off Heater Until Next Winter

heater system maintenanceSpring has sprung, and if you’re like many of us, you can’t wait to turn off your heating system, open some windows and welcome the fresh air inside. But before embracing the warmer temperatures, there are a few things you need to do before shutting off your heater this season. The team at Clay’s Climate Control can help make sure you’re ready with our heating system maintenance checklist. 

The Importance of Post-Season Maintenance

As we say goodbye to the bitter temperatures, it means your heating system finally gets to take a much-needed break. Before you shut it down for good, performing post-season maintenance can ensure it works at optimal efficiency next year. Check out our helpful tips below to guarantee your heater is working its best for winter 2023! 

Replace the air filterA quick and easy job, you’ll want to replace the air filter before you shut your system down. A clean air filter improves airflow and air quality inside your home. By doing this simple task, you can help the efficiency of your air conditioner this summer or save time and ensure a clean filter is in place before next winter. 

Clean the unit – Cleaning your heating system removes dust and debris that has built up throughout the winter. It can also mitigate fire hazards. 

Do a visual inspection – While tinkering with the electrical connections that make up your heating system is never recommended, it’s still a good idea to inspect it for dents, strange noises, excessive dust buildup, and other inconsistencies. If you notice anything that seems out of place, contact the professional team at Clay’s Climate Control, who can look over your unit and provide necessary repairs.

Don’t store items near the furnace – Many homeowners make this common mistake. Remove items near the unit to prevent a possible fire. 

Check the pilot light if you have one – If you have a gas furnace, check the pilot light. A well-maintained pilot light should burn blue, shouldn’t waver, and should remain steady while on. If your pilot light is orange, this indicates impurities and potential issues.  

Schedule professional heater maintenance – After you’ve tackled the above to-do list, it’s a good idea to schedule a heater maintenance service from a professional. Professional heating services should be completed at least twice a year to keep your system working optimally. During heater maintenance, your tech will check various components that make up your system and provide cleaning and parts lubrication to restore and maintain your unit.
