Spring Means It’s Time for Your AC’s Regular Check-Up

air-conditioning-maintenance-toolsSpring officially starts at the end of March, but most of us won’t truly feel that the season has arrived until the calendar turns over to April. This doesn’t mean the weather will follow along—anybody who’s lived in New Jersey for a few years understands that cold weather can come roaring back at any time. But April still marks an important turning point in the seasons, and it’s one of the best times to take care of your annual air conditioning maintenance in Cherry Hill, NJ

These yearly check-ups provide technicians with an opportunity to find potential issues that need to be addressed. We also clean and adjust the unit to help its performance and to alleviate the wear and tear it suffered through the last summer. It’s the best service you can have if you want reliable and cost-effective cooling in your house.

Does Your AC Need This Every Year?

The question people most often ask about AC maintenance is if it’s necessary every year. The answer is yes. Skipping a year here and there may not seem like a huge deal, but it has a cumulative effect in the long term… and often in the short term.

How Does Yearly Maintenance Benefit My AC?

In many ways! We’ve been in the HVAC business long enough to see these benefits in action for our customers who keep up with maintenance, and we’ve seen what can happen with air conditioners that haven’t had their annual professional check-ups. Here are the major benefits of staying current with yearly AC check-ups:

  • You’ll prevent the majority of repairs—from 50–85% of them! That’s correct: maintenance can stop more than half of the repairs an air conditioner may otherwise need during its service life.
  • The air conditioning system has a much smaller chance of an abrupt breakdown during the summer. You know how hot and humid the summer weather gets here in New Jersey, and all that stress put on an AC to keep a home cool can cause it to fail. Maintenance lowers the chance of that happening significantly, which provides great peace of mind (as well as a consistently cool house).
  • Cleanings and adjustments help an air conditioner run at the highest possible energy efficiency. Without these regular tasks, an AC will see its energy efficiency start to decline each year, costing more to run than it should. Thanks to maintenance, you can expect your air conditioner to retain 95% of its original efficiency rating until the last 1–2 years of its service life.
  • A well-maintained AC will easily make it to the upper end of its estimated lifespan. Most ACs will last from 10 to 15 years, but that’s with maintenance. Skipping maintenance drops that number, sometimes in half.
  • You’ll keep the warranty for the air conditioner valid. Missing maintenance may void this important protection against factory faults leading to repairs and even an early replacement.
  • An air conditioner will run better overall thanks to professional maintenance service. It will keep its original cooling capacity for most of its service life.
