Yes, it absolutely does! Regular inspection, cleaning and tune-ups prevent breakdowns, prolong the life of your system, and even save money on energy bills. Here’s how:
When debris and deposits build up on the air conditioner’s coils, fan blades and other parts, the metal corrodes, leading to refrigerant leaks and eventually, system failure. It also creates a drain on the system, forcing your unit to run constantly in order to keep the space cool and using more electricity in the process. Tuning up the system regularly ensures that it runs at optimal efficiency and keeps the parts in good condition so they last longer.
