Top 4 Benefits of Regular AC Unit Cleaning (Hint, You Save A Lot of Money)

You hear from your HVAC specialist, the manufacturer, and your mom that you should practice regular AC unit cleaning. But why? What’s the big deal? At Gorman Mechanical, we are advocates for making heating and cooling maintenance as easy on you as possible, and AC unit care, including cleaning, helps limit repairs and saves you big money in the end. In this article, we will highlight four major benefits of regular AC unit cleaning that will keep you caring for your HVAC system as carefully as you do your car. 

Lower Energy Bills – Did we mention saving money? Staying on top of regular AC unit cleaning can lower each monthly energy bill, saving you a good chunk annually. Any clogged or dirty air conditioner will not be running efficiently. And inefficient air conditioners cost you more money to run them to keep you cool. Plus, if an AC unit is working at max efficiency, you won’t need to run it so often because the air is cooler, thus saving you more money. 

Breathe Cleaner Air – If you keep our air conditioning unit clean and maintained, that will simply improve the quality of air you breathe in. If you live in polluted air, you may suffer from allergies or asthma related to mold, dander, and other particulate floating around. A clogged or dirty air conditioner also can’t distribute cleaner air as easily, making the circulated air stagnant and unhealthy. 

Extended AC Life – A well-maintained and clean air conditioner is a happy, long-lived air conditioner. Extend the longevity of your system by taking great care of it and having your HVAC professionals perform bi-annual check-ups to monitor the evaporative coil, inspect air ducts for leakage, calibrate the thermostat, and look over many other vital components of the appliance. Your air conditioner is expensive, and you will find that staying on top of regular maintenance and cleaning helps you significantly optimize the life of your system.

Avoid Bigger Problems – Overlooking basic cleaning and maintenance now could lead to a landslide of bigger, costly issues later. If you don’t clean your system, one major issue you can experience is the air conditioner freezing up. The Freon lines to the unit won’t receive enough warm air circulating around them, causing the coils to freeze. Regular cleaning practices can prevent this and other problems from occurring. 

Cleaning your air conditioner and using these other steps to lower your AC costs can greatly benefit the long-term reliability of your system and save you significant money every year. We know that understanding what to do and finding a trustworthy HVAC repair source can be overwhelming, which is where Gorman steps in. We have more than 18 years of experience in air conditioner and HVAC repair in North Texas.

Gorman Mechanical installed a brand new cooling and heating system in my home. The replacement unit was larger and more energy-efficient. Our house has never been cooler and our energy bill even went down…. I highly recommend them and their services.

- Thomas

I had an issue with my A/C unit not cooling properly. The technician, Stacy, arrived during the time frame I was given, and I received a phone call about 30 minutes prior to his arrival, letting me know he was on his way. He was very professional and conscientious in figuring out and explaining the issue to me. He work was complete in a little over an hour and my house is cool once again! I will definitely refer Gorman Mechanical to others.

- S.M.

A Gorman technician came over to set us up with a new A/C unit and he did a phenomenal job. He was very up front with any cost and got our install scheduled in one day. He did a great job at getting me the unit needed without running the price through the roof.

I met with Gorman Mechanical’s Sales Manager. When he came out I had a bad taste in my mouth due to some misrepresentations made by another company that happened to be A rated on Angie’s List. Because of this I’m certain I was on the defensive and asked a million questions. He was very patient and took plenty of time answering all my questions. He was very knowledgeable and helped educate me on my options and the advantages/shortfalls of each. When I came to the actual bid, I felt it was very competitive compared to other bids I’d received. I felt so well informed and confident at that point I cancelled two other appointments I’d made for that day and signed up with Gorman Mechanical. He was able to promptly arrange a great deal on financing the bulk of the cost, leaving me to pay out of pocket for a couple last minute additions (extended warranty/Reme Halo). They did not want this until installation was complete. A couple days later they installed my new system and I’ve been very happy with it. Shortly after installation I had several other questions about maintenance and a small amount that was overcharged upon installation. He was very responsive answering my questions and arranging for a prompt refund check to be sent. Fortunately, it isn’t often that I need to spend so much money on an important purchase like this, but I felt very confident with my decision and going through the process with him and Gorman Mechanical made it painless. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gorman Mechanical to friends and family.

The repairman, Tim H., was prompt and courteous. I explained that he was a second opinion for our 21-year-old AC. The first company said that I would need 2 parts totaling $600 plus a coil that they would have to send a salesman out to quote me a price. Also first company was suggesting that I really needed whole new system. After inspection, Tim showed me how a part was wired the wrong way and he replaced a compactor and repaired a burnt wire. 2 lbs Freon were added. Total cost was retail: $217.75. I had a warranty so I paid less but what a difference in $600.00+ and $217.75! AC is working fine now. And we didn’t have to buy a new system. Thanks, Gorman Mechanical and Tim H.! The world needs more honest repairmen like you!
