Your air conditioner has a direct impact on how comfortable your home is throughout the year, keeping the inside at the perfect temperature as the seasons outside change.

Herrmann Services has been providing top-of-the-line AC maintenance to homes throughout the area for over 50 years and continues to bring nothing but the best in terms of quality and integrity to residents of the Queen City. When it comes to caring for such a crucial part of your home, you deserve nothing but the best, and this family-owned, family-run service is here to deliver, no matter how big or small your maintenance needs may be.
How Important is Maintaining an AC Unit?
Throughout the hot, humid Cincinnati summers and the city’s chilly, windy winters, your AC unit works hard to maintain a stable temperature within your home. However, in the process, the various parts that make up your unit undergo a large amount of wear and tear. Over the course of several months of operation, this wear and tear will become more advanced, likely leading to a complete unit failure. This leaves your home without the cool air you’ve become accustomed to and leaves your home stifling and uncomfortable.
Fortunately, a bit of regular air conditioning maintenance is typically enough to keep these severe issues at bay. Some of the most basic tasks are easy and may be performed on your own without the help of a professional. These tasks include:
- Changing your air filter regularly
- Ensuring air vents and returns are unobstructed
- Cleaning up around the outside unit to avoid blocking airflow
Simply cleaning indoor vents, changing your filter as recommended by your user manual or existing filter, and cleaning up shrubbery and debris around your condenser ensures easy, proper airflow throughout your system. However, there are a number of maintenance tasks you will need professional help to perform properly. These include:
- Checking and restoring refrigerant levels
- Maintaining electrical components
- Replacing key parts such as fan belts
Ensuring your unit’s parts are all in working order is equally important as maintaining a proper airflow during operation. However, due to exposure to potentially dangerous chemicals and situations, these jobs should always be left to the Herrmann Services professionals, who have the training, tools, and industry knowledge to safely perform the job.
When you invest your time, money, and energy into maintaining your AC unit properly, you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits, especially when it comes to your wallet. The most noteworthy benefits of properly maintaining your system include:
- Lower monthly utility costs
- Reduced likelihood of breakdowns and malfunctions
- Ensure the safety of your home
- Increase the longevity of your system
- Maintain requirements for warranty coverage
By identifying small problems before becoming huge ones through regular maintenance, you’re investing in an AC unit that works better, lasts longer, and costs less money. It’s an occasional project that makes a long-lasting difference. Reach out to Herrmann Services today to learn about even more benefits you can reap when you choose to schedule regular maintenance services with our trained, reliable technicians.
