Quality air conditioning manufacturers offer products that provide cool indoor comfort and low operating costs. While the manufacturing quality of these units is exceptional, central air conditioners are subject to significant wear and stress, especially during the hot and humid Birmingham summer weather. To help reduce the chance of an expensive breakdown and extend the life of your AC equipment, the professionals at One Source Heating and Cooling have developed a comprehensive air conditioner maintenance program.

Benefits of Preventative MaintenanceThere are many important benefits provided by an AC maintenance agreement when the service is conducted by a licensed, professional HVAC contractor.
- Lower Repair Costs: An air conditioner maintenance program is designed to identify minor problems before they cause a service disruption. Worn parts that are not replaced force other components to compensate. This condition negatively impacts performance and may ultimately lead to a premature breakdown, usually during the hottest part of the summer.
- Improved Comfort: When airflow is restricted, system performance suffers. The air indoors can feel stagnant, and humidity control is degraded. Our technicians will make sure that any restrictions are removed from system.
- Lower Utility Costs: As part of the service, our technicians verify that your air conditioner is operating at peak efficiency, which will help reduce operating costs. We also inspect your ductwork and building perimeter to expose inefficient structural components that raise utility bills
- Extended Equipment Life: A regularly serviced air conditioner will produce the same capacity while accumulating far fewer operating hours. Overall wear on the system is reduced, which can help maximize the equipment lifecycle.
