The first part of spring is often unpredictable—those April snowstorms the worst! But spring means warmer weather is coming, and hot weather is not far off. This is the best time of year to arrange for professional maintenance for your home’s air conditioning system. A technician comes to your house and inspects the AC, makes adjustments and tune-ups as necessary, and cleans the components that need it. If the technicians spots a repair need, you can have it done early—before summer arrives.
Maintenance is beneficial for your air conditioner and you in a number of important ways:
ONE: Peace of Mind About Breakdowns
Do you want to worry through the whole summer about whether your AC will turn back on again when you need it? You wouldn’t want to take a long road trip with a service warning light on in your car, since that would mean constant concern about when the car will breakdown and strand you. It’s the same with an AC. Without maintenance, your AC could strand you in a hot house. With maintenance, you’ll have peace of mind knowing there’s little chance of this happening.
TWO: Fewer Repairs Costs and Inconveniences
Repairs happen. There’s no way to avoid them entirely. You can, however, prevent most of them. Around 85% of the, in fact. Maintenance stops most malfunctions that can afflict an air conditioner. The cleaning and tune-ups slow down the wear and tear that can create repair issues, and the inspection catches places where a small problem can be halted before it becomes a bigger one. You’ll save money and won’t have to deal with the inconvenience having to make regular emergency calls to fix the AC.
THREE: Energy-Saving System Performance
Electricity powers an air conditioner, and you expect to see a rise in your electrical bills over the summer. If you air conditioner isn’t getting routine maintenance, you can expect the rise in the bills to be much higher—and get higher each summer. Maintenance protects the energy efficiency of an AC, preventing it from becoming too expensive to run. You can expect a cooling system to retain 95% of its efficiency rating for most of its life thanks to maintenance.
FOUR: Longer Equipment Service Life
How long do you want you air conditioner to last? As long as possible! The way to see that your AC lasts exactly this long is to have it never miss a maintenance appointment. Annual care keeps age from getting a grip on the system too early. You can expect your air conditioner to last around 15 years with maintenance—and around half that without it.
