Just as your car performs better when regularly serviced, seasonal maintenance helps keep your cooling system running at peak performance, as well. Air conditioning systems are complex pieces of equipment made up of parts designed to work in synchronization with each other.
During a Precision Tune-up, each component is inspected, tested, and adjusted as needed to ensure optimal operation. Studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have found that well-maintained air conditioners can reduce energy consumption by as much as 20%.
When maintained properly, a high-efficiency air conditioning system can keep you cool and comfortable for 15 years or longer. Neglect, poor design, and unaddressed repairs, however, can significantly reduce the system’s service life. In addition, it’s not always to your advantage to wait until your air conditioner is on its last legs to replace it. If your current air conditioner is more than 10 years old, a replacement may save you more money on energy costs over the long term. Modern air conditioners have features that make them easier and more convenient to enjoy as well.
Although traditional central cooling systems that circulate conditioned air through ductwork remain popular choices for replacements and new installations, ductless systems are gaining in popularity, as well. Unlike conventional forced-air systems, mini split ductless products don’t rely on air ducts to deliver conditioned air. Instead, individual air handlers are installed in each room or zone. Since the ductwork in the average home wastes up to 30% of the air that passes through them, ductless systems are inherently more energy efficient.
Whether you have an older home where installing ductwork isn’t feasible or you need an additional cooling solution, ductless air conditioners adapt well to a variety of applications. Each air handler can be controlled individually, so you can set different temperatures for each room or zone. Many ductless mini split models utilize inverter technology that allows the units to adjust blower speeds automatically according to your comfort needs, operating at lower speeds when cooling demands are low.
