AC Maintenance Cambridge: What To Expect

If you’re interested in air conditioner maintenance but you haven’t invested in a plan yet, you may be wondering what to expect. Routine AC Maintenance is done when an HVAC professional takes a thorough look and inspection of your unit as well as your thermostat. This is done to make sure that everything is running as it should.

During your maintenance session, an HVAC technician will come to your home and perform a thorough inspection on your unit, as well as your thermostat. This means that they will be working both inside of your home and outside. They will make sure your thermostat is working correctly, and they may also inspect other parts of your HVAC system like your ductwork. 

During your inspection, a professionally trained HVAC Technician will be respectful of your family and your home. You can expect the technician to be in and around your home for a few hours.

2. Should I Invest in an AC Maintenance Plan?

Choosing a maintenance plan should be seen as an investment. While you will be paying a yearly fee for this service, you will very likely save a lot of money on costly repairs and emergency services. Routine maintenance is the best way to catch small problems before they become big ones. 

A trained HVAC technician can tell when something is wrong or is about to go wrong. Typically, a homeowner won’t know there’s something wrong with their AC unit until it is very noticeable – which often results in costly repairs. When you invest in a maintenance plan, you will get regular inspections (performed yearly).  This means that many small issues are caught right away and resolved before they have the chance to become a major issue.

Here are some other reasons why you should invest in a Service 1st Maintenance Plan:

✓ Routine Maintenance Reduces Emergency Calls 
✓ After-Hours Diagnostic Calls are Included in the Plan (No Charge) 
✓ No Overtime Fees On Weekends or Holidays 
✓ Helps Extend The Life of Your Unit
✓ Increased Cooling Efficiency 
✓ 20% Discount On Filter Replacements 

And More! It’s also important to note that some warranties require regular maintenance in order for the warranty to stay valid. If you aren’t sure what your warranty requires, make sure you talk to your HVAC company to find out.

Air Conditioner FAQ

Not sure if your unit needs maintenance, repairs, or it’s simply time to replace it all together? Have other questions about how your AC works or using it efficiently? Continue reading below to learn the answers to many questions that homeowners have about their air conditioners.

Does My AC Need a Repair?

Strange noises, leaking fluid, and inefficient cooling are some signs your AC needs a repair

AC maintenance is preventative. It is done on a yearly schedule to help keep your unit running efficiently and effectively. There may be times throughout the year when you think something is wrong with your air conditioner. If that’s the case, you may need a repair. Some common signs that you should call an HVAC technician to come out and inspect your unit for problems include: 

  • Your unit is making strange noises while running 
  • Your unit is leaking 
  • Your unit is not cooling the house down as quickly as it usually does
  • Your unit won’t turn on at all 
If you notice anything strange or different about about the way that your air conditioner is running, it’s always best to call a local, trusted HVAC professional to see if there is a problem.

It may be tempting to try to do a DIY inspection or repair, but you should always leave the work to the professionals. You should never try to touch anything on or in your unit by yourself. Air conditioners contain chemicals and sharp pieces as well as complex mechanical parts that can hurt you. You could also make a problem worse if you try to inspect or repair something on your own.

Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?

In most cases, if your air conditioner is under 10 years old, it usually makes more sense to repair your unit rather than replace it. However, there are many cases where it might make more sense to buy a new unit. If the repair will be very expensive, it sometimes makes more financial sense to spend a bit more and just get a brand new unit. 

If your unit is 15 years or older, it may also be time to consider replacing the unit. If you have an older, inexpensive unit, you may want to consider replacing it with a high-quality, energy efficient unit. While replacement will of course cost more upfront, you can end up saving a lot on your energy bills when you choose a high efficiency unit. 

Before you decide whether or not it makes sense to replace your air conditioner, reach out to a local HVAC company. They can help you work through all of the pros and cons as well as any other available options to help you make the best decision.

How Can I Use My AC Efficiently?

There are many ways that you can use your air conditioner efficiently. Most of these options are simple, but can make a difference when it comes to your monthly bills.

One of the best ways is to invest in a smart thermostat. Your thermostat is what controls your air conditioner, and therefore, tells it when to run and when to stop. Most older thermostats allow you to set a temperature and hold it, or create a schedule for your unit to run.

Using a schedule is better than the ‘hold’ option, because you can set your thermostat to higher temperatures when you aren’t home on weekdays, for example. This means that your AC won’t be running as often during the day when you don’t need it as much.

Even better than a schedule, however, are the newest smart features on smart thermostats. These high-tech thermostats create an optimal schedule based on your unique habits and can completely optimize your air conditioner schedule for maximum energy savings.

A smart thermostat can help you reduce your energy bills

If you don’t want to invest in a new thermostat right now, there are other simple things you can do to make sure that your air conditioner is running as efficiently as possible, including: 

  •  Cleaning your ducts: Keeping your ducts clean and free of debris will ensure your AC’s cool air reaches all areas of your home. It also makes sure your unit won’t have to work overtime to keep your house cool.

  • Keep your doors and vents open: When you ensure that all of your doors are open (whenever possible) and that your vents are open and clear from anything blocking them, it helps airflow.

  • Use your window treatments: Keep the sun out with high-quality shutters, blinds, or shades. A lot of sunlight can come through your windows, quickly heating up your home. When possible, keep your blinds closed or partially closed to reduce the impact on hot summer days.
