Studies suggest that 9 out of 10 HVAC system failures are caused by dirt and dust.
It’s easy to forget or neglect our heating and air conditioning system. Usually, the indoor and outdoor components are out of normal every day sight, when we adjust the thermostat – the system responds and many homeowners understandably take for granted that it simply works like any other appliance and needs no up keep.
However, your heating and air conditioning system does need annual preventive maintenance by a certified HVAC company to keep the system operating at peak efficiency to reduce energy usage and save you money. In addition, safety controls and fuel supply, poisonous combustion discharge functions and electrical connections need to be thoroughly checked and inspected to ensure safe operation.
Manufacturer, utility company, university and government studies have all concluded that proper maintenance conducted on an annual basis is essential to reducing equipment failure that results in expensive repairs in addition to minimizing energy usage and energy expenditures. In fact, some air conditioning problems can double the cost of system operation without reducing comfort. In other words, it’s possible for a serious problem to exist without a homeowner even knowing it!
Did You Know?
The average heating and air conditioning system runs for approximately 2,000 hours per year. If you drove your car 45 miles per hour for 2,000 hours, you would drive 90,000 miles. Would you drive 90,000 miles without proper maintenance?
For every 10 minutes a gas furnace operates it unleashes the same energy as 3-1/2 sticks of dynamite. You wouldn’t want to operate such an “explosive” device without ensuring its safe operation annually would you? Don’t you think maintenance is critical for such equipment?
Our expert air conditioning technicians are all certified and are experienced in performing thorough preventive maintenance on all makes and models of air conditioning systems. They’ll make sure that your air conditioning system is functioning properly, that it’s running at peak efficiency and – when necessary – recommend preventive steps to ensure continued reliable A/C operation. It doesn’t matter if your system is old or new, if you are looking for routine maintenance or if you’re in need of a major A/C repair; One Hour Air Conditioning is here to help.
We maintain and repair all air conditioning systems, all brands, makes and models:

Benefits of Air Conditioning System Maintenance
Save On Utility Bills! A properly maintained heating and air conditioning system will cost you less to operate. Some studies suggest a savings of up to 20%!
Reduced Equipment Failure and Increased System Life Span! Regular air conditioning system maintenance reduces the need for emergency repairs and increases the longevity of your heating and air conditioning system. When we perform maintenance work on your heating or air conditioning system, our goal is a simple one – maintain or restore your system as close as possible to manufacturer specifications as it was the day it was built!
Save On Repairs! While preventive maintenance certainly helps to reduce and avoid system failure, some potential issues cannot be detected nor avoided even with the most thorough preventive maintenance. When this happens, One Hour’s maintenance program members receive a significant discount on all air conditioning repairs.
One Hour’s air conditioning maintenance plans are designed to help reduce your energy costs and reduce equipment failure. Many independent studies have proven, time and time again, that proper heating and air conditioning maintenance literally pays for itself.
Twenty-three problems cause 93% of air conditioning failures, and 16 of them can be prevented with proper maintenance.
A buildup of just one 100th of an inch of dirt or film on an evaporator coil can reduce its efficiency by 5%, and 0.042 inches of dirt can result in a decrease of efficiency of 21%.
A dirty evaporator coil, condenser coil or blower could increase air conditioning or heat pump electrical usage by 50% or more. A blower wheel with lint and dust provides 15-20% less air. The result is lower efficiency. A dirty blower wheel usually indicates a dirty evaporator coil. Clean systems restore capacity and lessen run time, thereby reducing operating costs and extending system life span.
Countless university and utility company studies have shown that homeowners save significant amounts of energy and money when they have regular maintenance and cleaning of their air conditioning systems.
