The Importance of AC Maintenance: What Dangers are Hiding in Your Unit?

As a homeowner, there’s nothing quite like the comfort of a cool, refreshing home during the sweltering summer months. However, your air conditioning (AC) unit can become a hidden culprit for harboring allergens and debris if not properly maintained. Things like leaves, cottonwood, and even small animals can find their way into your system, causing inefficiencies and potential damage that could lead to costly repairs.

Why Routine AC Maintenance is Essential

  1. Debris Accumulation

Leaves, cottonwood, and other outdoor debris can easily get sucked into your AC unit, especially during the height of allergy seasons. When this happens, it can obstruct airflow, reducing your system’s efficiency, making it work harder to cool your home. This not only increases your energy bills but also puts unnecessary strain on your system, shortening its lifespan.

  1. Animal Intrusions

Small animals like birds, rodents, and insects often seek refuge inside AC units. Their presence can cause significant damage to internal components, leading to costly repairs or even system failure. Regular maintenance helps identify and mitigate these issues before they become major problems.

  1. Allergen Build-Up

For allergy sufferers, a poorly maintained AC unit can exacerbate symptoms. Pollen, dust, and mold spores can accumulate within the system and be circulated throughout your home, triggering allergic reactions and respiratory issues. Routine cleaning and maintenance ensure that your indoor air quality remains high, providing a healthier living environment.

These photos, like the ones above, show what buildup of debris and allergens look like on the surface and inside of your system. The best way to keep your system running smoothly is to have it cleaned and checked by a professional.
