Fixing an AC Unit Outside


Benefits of Maintaining Your HVAC Unit

Keeping on top of maintenance can help prevent emergencies, and there are many other benefits, too. Regular air conditioning maintenance can improve energy efficiency. By sealing leaks, replacing dirty filters, and cleaning coils and air ducts, maintenance prevents your air conditioner from working harder than it has to and wasting energy.

The air quality in your home or business will improve if you regularly clean your air filters. Filters should be cleaned or replaced every season because they collect dust and dirt, which can block up your air conditioner. Maintenance will also keep your air conditioning unit running longer. Taking preventative measures and properly cleaning can reduce many problems and save you from replacing your entire system.

HVAC Emergencies

HVAC maintenance can help reduce problems, but emergencies can still happen. So what exactly is an HVAC emergency, and what do you need to do?

A common HVAC emergency is the air conditioner breaking down on a very hot day. The heat can be uncomfortable, but if you have young children or elderly parents in your home, the heat can be dangerous. If temperatures outside are 90-100 degrees, your house can become very hot very quickly. You’ll want to get your air conditioner fixed as soon as possible.

The same goes for your heater breaking down on a very cold day. Some cold days in Pennsylvania can get down to the single digits, so it can be very dangerous to have children or elderly family members without heat on those extremely cold days.

If there is a safety concern with an HVAC unit, it is likely an emergency and should get checked out by a professional quickly. This includes gas leaks or smoke. That could lead to a fire or health concerns, so you should get a professional diagnosis quickly.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
