KENILWORTH, NJ, August 16, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It's always a good idea to have your air conditioner checked out and serviced by a professional before the start of the peak summer season, but it's even more important this year because of the extremes of weather that we have recently experienced, including Hurricane Sandy.
During the past fall and winter, the components of your cooling system that are located outside the home were exposed to extreme weather including flooding, blizzard-like conditions and near-hurricane winds. Fallen limbs and other debris caused by wet, heavy snow may have caused damage not outwardly visible without careful inspection. These conditions, in combination with the normal deterioration caused by months of sitting idle, could lead to unexpected problems if not corrected before the summer heating season arrives. There is no such thing as a convenient time for a cooling system to fail, but the best way to prevent it is to schedule regular preventive maintenance.
"There's nothing as uncomfortable as having your air conditioner fail on the hottest day of the year," says Bobby Ring, President of Meyer & Depew, a family owned and operated HVAC dealer based in Kenilworth, NJ. "Records show, however, that four out of five system breakdowns can be prevented with regular maintenance. That's why it is so important to have your air conditioning system checked before the start of the cooling season, especially in light of the extreme weather conditions we have experienced since the last time most air conditioning units were operating."
System failure isn't the only thing you need to worry about. Keeping your cooling system operating at peak efficiency to save energy and prolong equipment life is equally important. An air conditioner is a complex piece of equipment and if one part is not functioning properly after sitting idle over the long winter months, it can significantly reduce the efficiency of the entire system.
Regular maintenance of your air conditioning system can also help extend the useful life of your system and its parts. You wouldn't drive your car 100,000 miles without a service checkup because without proper maintenance critical parts would begin to fail prematurely. The same applies to your cooling system.
"A well-maintained cooling system should provide years of comfortable service," says Ring. "If it's not regularly maintained, however, it can fail unexpectedly and require an expensive replacement. In many cases, this can be easily avoided, by relatively inexpensive preventive maintenance."
