When it comes to comfort within the home, an efficient AC system during the warmer summer months is going to stand out. There are few moments as frustrating as hoping to step into a chilled house only to find it sweltering. But this doesn’t need to be the case for you!
With the proper maintenance and timely repairs or replacements, you can enjoy a cool and comfortable home year-round with an efficient AC unit. The team at Wickstrom serves residents throughout Boise and surrounding areas.
Why is Regular AC Maintenance Important?
Cooling service and maintenance often gets overlooked. There are countless moving parts within your AC unit and the chance of one or more parts becoming damaged due to a lack of maintenance can be quite high. This is why we recommend a full maintenance service at least once a year.
Since heating and cooling is often upwards of 50 percent of a home’s energy costs, regular maintenance is money well spent for those who would like to keep their home comfortable and their energy bills down.
The filter replacement that takes place during routine maintenance is one of the biggest factors that affect energy efficiency, and is often the cause of rising electricity bills during the summer. This is why routine maintenance is crucial to keeping your energy costs low.
When your AC unit is not properly maintained, you may experience a minimum of 5 percent loss of efficiency every year. This will vary slightly between homes due to the fact that there are a range of factors that could decrease the efficiency, ranging from overuse to excessive dust or physical damage. These outside factors will also help to determine how long the AC unit will last. With proper maintenance, your unit can last up to 17 years.
Looking to Install a Ductless Mini Split AC?
A popular cooling option is the ductless mini split AC unit. These devices can be retroactively fitted within a room with minimal alterations to walls. Ductless mini splits are designed to target specific areas of the home, often saving money for those who are looking to install a new system.
The thermostat on each device is only located within the zone that is meant to be cooled, which means no excessive cooling in rooms that are not being occupied.
From yearly maintenance to the installation of a new AC system, the team at Wickstrom is ready to make your home as comfortable as possible. With over 20 years of experience, we understand just how devastating it can be to endure those hot summer months without a functional AC unit.
