Residents of Cranberry, PA should schedule a tune-up for their AC, ideally, every spring before the temperatures start to rise. Experts recommend maintenance because of how it can help the AC run smoothly and even save you money in the long run. Neglect maintenance, though, and your AC may act up in the following ways.
No Cool Air
One thing you’ll experience is a lack of cool air, probably on account of dirt build-up inside the air handler, a clogged filter, or a worn fan motor. A well-maintained AC will provide enough to cool all your rooms simultaneously, so if you notice warm spots in some rooms, there’s a problem. AC neglect also leads to extremely short or long cycles, whereas a system should run for between 10 and 15 minutes and cycle two to three times an hour.
More Breakdowns, More Repairs
It’s normal to need an AC repair once or twice a year once your system reaches a certain age. But a greater frequency of repairs indicates that you may need to replace your AC. Sadly, the repairs you’ll face with a poorly maintained AC can be extensive and cost a hefty sum.
A Shorter Life Span for the AC
Maintenance can prevent wear and tear and keep an AC running well for 15 or even 20 years. If you avoid it, though, don’t expect your AC to last beyond 10 years.
High Humidity Levels
Your AC removes humidity from your home, so if it starts to falter in its operation, you might become uncomfortable and even invite biological growth. This can make your home unhealthy for those with respiratory issues.
