Getting your air conditioner “maintained” might sound like a kind of luxury service—but it’s not. Many people simply think that having a family friend look at the system, or just doing a quick inspection of the outside cabinet is enough, but these complex systems require more.
Sure, your air conditioner might continue to function well if you skip a year of maintenance, but it will likely get worn down and will have trouble lasting its full lifespan. Then, you’ll be confused when you reach year seven of owning the system and it’s already old, broken, and requiring replacement. That’s never a good feeling.
Air conditioning maintenance in Alachua, FL is designed to keep your system running effectively and efficiently. That 10–15 year lifespan we dream of having from our AC systems is only really achievable with routine maintenance every year.

When investing in air conditioning services, it can be easy to point out whether you “need” a service or not. Do you need AC repairs or not? Do you need a new AC installation, or are you just fine? These are easy questions to answer, and you don’t need to get into the weeds of how helpful they’ll be if you don’t need them.
AC maintenance in Gainesville, FL on the other hand, is not that kind of topic to cover. Just like spring cleaning or getting your taxes done early, AC maintenance isn’t necessarily “needed” in that kind of way. But saying that it’s not important is deceptive.
Maintenance is a service that will go a long way towards easing your energy bills, keeping your home comfortable, reducing repairs, and it will even be a resource to you and your family if you take advantage of it. Think of maintenance as a positive force for the future, instead of something needed for today.

Most modern-day furnaces have a bunch of different safety mechanisms to ensure that they run properly. For instance, the heat exchanger keeps the system from accidentally allowing carbon monoxide and other fumes to enter the breathable space of your home. Other components, like the electrical ignition, make sure that the system is in charge of whether or not a flame gets lit, so it doesn’t accidentally run for longer than it needs to.
But here’s a question: how does your furnace know if the gas inside of it is being burned? After all, can’t it accidentally leak gas through a burner system that’s not functioning correctly? And, as we all know, gas is expensive. Well, there’s a component that helps regulate this process and keeps your home from encountering a dangerous gas leak. It’s the flame sensor, and this blog post will be dedicated to describing what this component does, and why you might need it fixed with furnace repair in Lake City, FL!

Heat pumps require maintenance twice a year instead of just once.

It’s definitely possible! Air conditioners rely on refrigerant in order to cool down the air in a home. The refrigerant cycles through evaporation and condensation, both of which transfer heat from one place to another. However, if there’s a leak in your refrigerant line, your air conditioner might start exhibiting problems in a variety of different ways. No two air conditioners are exactly the same, so depending on your unique situation, you might have different symptoms of a refrigerant leak than your neighbor or family friend.
So, what are some of the signs of a refrigerant leak? And what might a refrigerant leak mean for your comfort and your home efficiency? We’re glad you asked! We’re going to answer these questions today and talk about why calling our team for air conditioning in Newberry, FL is always the right choice in this kind of moment.
