Air Conditioning Maintenance Can Help You Save
Regular, quality AC maintenance is key to keeping your home cool during the summer, but it doesn’t end there. Air conditioners require regular maintenance to blow cold air summer after summer. AC tune-ups also help you avoid costly air conditioner repairs down the road. Dust, dirt, and pollutants in your home and environment make regular cleaning and replacing of certain parts necessary to the life of your AC. Contact us today to get your system running efficiently.
A Reliable Air Conditioner Needs Annual Service
Like your car, regular AC maintenance ensures proper operation. The last thing you want is to turn on your air conditioning system and feel nothing but warm air coming from the vents. Regardless of your energy source, your AC unit has a lot of moving parts that require maintenance to prevent premature wear. Anytime you don’t use equipment for several months you run the risk of dust and debris settling on important components that could potentially damage the unit.
Christian offers comprehensive inspection, cleaning, and adjustment for your air conditioner. Our Advantage Plan comes free for the first year of your new air conditioner purchase from Christian but you can also subscribe to this plan to preserve your existing cooling system.

Top Three Reasons to Service Your AC Unit
Regardless of the size, age, and brand of your air conditioner, they all have the same primary components. Often the simplest way to make sure you’re AC can function properly is to regularly change your air filters. Other parts require more effort to manage but our licensed technicians can ensure your air conditioner is as good as new after we provide your tune-up.
1. Air Conditioner Filters
Clogged and dirty filters obstruct airflow and reduce an AC unit’s efficiency. Simply replacing a compromised filter can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.
2. Air Conditioner Coils
Your evaporator coil should be checked and cleaned every year to remove dirt that is insulating it. Outdoor condenser coils also need to be kept clear of debris. Dryer vents, leaves, grass clippings, and foliage are all sources of potential debris.
3. Condensate Drains
Condensate drains may seem like a small component of your AC unit, but they play a big part in removing condensation from your system’s evaporator coil. If left untouched, algae and mold can accumulate, clogging the drain and preventing your AC unit from working properly.
