4 Health Benefits Of Having A Well-Maintained Air Conditioner

July 26, 2023 | Blog

Most people don’t realize that with owning an AC, you also must be responsible that it stays in great condition. Otherwise, it will break down during the time you most need it. With Louisiana’s hot summers, this would be quite the nightmare.

This is nothing Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can’t fix! Here are four reasons why having a well kept air conditioner is the right way to go.

Reduce Your Energy Use

If your cooling system is not working as well as it should, it may be tempting to turn on as many fans as possible. However, this can lead to higher energy bills since more electrical appliances are being used. Our technicians want to help you avoid increasing utility bills – which is why we advise to make sure your AC is well-kept.

Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing has seven locations throughout Louisiana, so you can be confident you’re always covered wherever you live! Our locations range from Baton Rouge to Alexandria, Pineville and more. Our HVAC maintenance group is at your service.

Improve Your Health And Safety

An important aspect of a well-maintained AC is having a clean filter. Your system’s filter is where all types of dust mites and airborne allergens can accumulate. Keeping this clean will prevent any serious health issues from coming up in the long run. Clogged filters can lead to allergy symptoms, fire hazards and an inefficient AC system.

Our professional team advises our customers to change their air filter quarterly – at least once every three months. Ensure you’re replacing your filter with the correct-sized replacement and that it’s oriented correctly. Reach out to our team to schedule a professional AC tune-up and filter change if you’re not confident enough to do this yourself.

Gain Better-Quality Sleep

No one likes to sleep in a place that gets hot, especially during the night. With great sleep comes a better tomorrow. This occurs with an air conditioner you have the power to control at all times. No worries about it shutting down on you during the times you most need it.

Scheduling a seasonal HVAC tune-up can help ensure your AC will run all summer long. Our maintenance services are thorough and comprehensive, and our technicians work with integrity and transparency. No matter what make or model of cooling system you have, we can service it!

Reduce Respiratory Issues

Contaminated air is bad for anyone, but mostly for those who have asthma, bronchitis or any other respiratory illness. If you have a well-kept AC, you do not have to worry about aggravating any of those respiratory issues.

Even if you are not sure your air conditioner requires repairs, it’s better to arrange for preventative maintenance. This can help you avoid any unexpected defects in the future – or worse, a premature system breakdown.
