I never used to be conscientious about having my a/c maintained in the Springtime, however since the cooling program was still fairly new, I saw no reason to pay for professional upkeep.
However, all of that changed when I got stuck paying for an expensive repair, however my cooling program quit in the middle of August, however leading up to the malfunction, I’d noticed that there was less air coming from the vents.
The a/c was running for longer cycles, having difficulties meeting the control component setting and costing me a luck in electric bills, plus, every time it started up, my youngsters would start sneezing. I was have trouble sleeping at night and my partner kept complaining about headaches. The a/c failed when the outside temperature was typically in the nineties with high humidity. I busy a repair and dreaded the cost. The professional took the a/c apart and showed me the inner components. There was a significant amount of mold, mildew and algae thriving inside. There was a thick layer of dust and other contaminants on the fan blades. The professional told me that every time the a/c ran, it was spreading harmful allergens throughout the house. My family was breathing them in and at risk of health concerns, fortunately, a thorough cleaning and adjustment restored the a/c to peak capacity and efficiency. The repair significantly improved the comfort, cleanliness and smell of the house. Since then, I’ve been diligent about scheduling maintenance for the cooling program every fall, however because of taking proactive measures, I’ve had no more concerns with the system.
