Routine preventative maintenance is proven to save you money, whether performed on your automobile or on your home HVAC system. With routine maintenance, homeowners are able to identify and catch problems early on and prevent serious system malfunctions or even complete system failures.

Though many homeowners feel that maintenance of an air conditioning system is not worth the cost or inconvenience, routine preventative maintenance is a whole lot cheaper than replacing coils or an entire AC unit. Spending between $75-180 a year to maintain your unit is a lot cheaper than a major repair ranging from $200-3500; or having to replace your system which also ranges from $6,000-12,000 (depending on your efficiency choice)

Changing out your air filters routinely, as simple a task that it is, can add years onto the lifespan of your AC system and equipment. Performing routine air conditioning maintenance is beneficial to your system’s overall performance and plays a vital role in keeping your system functioning at peak levels throughout the hotter months that Arizona experiences, May to August.

When you call to schedule a routine maintenance appointment, a certified HVAC technician from JR Perkins Heating & Cooling will come out to your home and inspect all the working components of your AC system.

With quality experience and know-how, your technician can easily diagnose, detect damaged parts, and provide effective solutions to all your AC problems.

With that said, your routine system maintenance will include the following preventative tasks, (depending on your choice for maintenance):

  • Excessive amounts of dirt and dust that accumulate in your system can cause your fans to work a whole lot harder and longer, the technician will inspect and clean the fan, so as to increase the performance of your AC system, reduce the allergens in your home, and also extend the life of your equipment and system
  • To increase the capacity of your HVAC system and to help increase energy efficiency, the technician will clean the condenser coils, the chillers and the air conditioners and will ensure there is no damage to the outside coils
  • The technician will also check your home’s thermostat to ensure that it is reaching required operating pressures and functioning properly
  • Lastly, the technician will provide you with a list of recommendations and pricing for any problems identified and, upon your acceptance, will perform the necessary repairs.

Though the tech performs the bulk of the preventative maintenance tasks, inspects all the components of your HVAC system, and performs any needed repairs, it is your responsibility to continue the routine maintenance procedures, at least annually, if not twice per year, which J.R. Perkins offers on our Energy Savings Agreement.

Much like your automobile, the preventative maintenance you perform benefits your system’s performance, which ultimately benefits you and your family by providing the comfort you want whether winter, spring, summer or fall.

With spring here and summer approaching, the highly trained HVAC technicians here at JR Perkins Heating & Cooling are on hand to handle all your air conditioning service needs.
