Maintenance helps prevent 85% of repairs your air conditioner may ever need by allowing our technicians to thoroughly inspect the system and alert you to any smaller wear-and-tear needs the system has before they grow into bigger emergencies. So in short, yes, maintenance really helps you avoid AC repair. Of course, it’s easy for us to say that, but a little bit harder to feel reassured as a homeowner, right?
We understand. This is why we’ve decided to share with you the many benefits of maintenance, below, and why you should look into enrolling in our Energy Savings Agreement (ESA).
Don’t forget! Last week we wrote about the deal we’re currently running for maintenance. There’s no time like the present to sign up–limited appointments available and the offer expires 8/15.
Maintenance Improves AC Efficiency
What exactly does this mean, you wonder? Well, efficiency is what you really want to care about when it comes to your air conditioner. Efficiency is a measure of how little power an air conditioner uses to provide you with the most amount of comfort (this is putting it simply).
Little things like making sure that the air conditioner is clean and that parts are in good condition help ensure your air conditioner is efficient. And an efficient air conditioner runs easier, which means it accumulates wear and tear slower, and you aren’t left with as many repair needs as you would be otherwise.
Maintenance Improves Your Home’s Air Quality
Did you know that your indoor air quality can be worse than the quality of the air outdoors? Of course, you can get the right indoor air quality systems in place to help with this! Another good layer of indoor air quality protection is making sure your air conditioner is thoroughly cleaned during AC maintenance.
This means cleaning the vents and various components that could allow dust and dirt to be blown into your home to stir up allergy and asthma symptoms among household members.
When an air conditioner is well maintained, it also helps dehumidify your home a bit. Now, this is not an air conditioner’s purpose–for truly comprehensive dehumidification you’ll want to invest in a whole-house dehumidifier that can be installed in your AC system’s ductwork. But when an air conditioner is allowed to work as efficiently as possible, it can at least help dehumidify your home a little bit.
Maintenance Helps Prevent Emergencies
Like we mentioned above, maintenance can help prevent up to 85% of the repairs an air conditioner may ever need in its lifespan. The reason for this is because, during the service, our technicians comprehensively inspect the system. We look for problems like a worn fan belt, or the lubrication wearing down on your motor bearings.
When issues like these are addressed right away, they never have the opportunity to create bigger problems, like a broken blower fan or an overheating motor.
