You’ve probably heard of maintenance before. If you drive a vehicle, you likely take it in for routine tune-ups on a regular basis–once it hits so many miles.
While you don’t have to worry about the mileage of an air conditioner, you do need to worry about how efficiently and effectively it’s going to work throughout its 10-15 useful service life.
We mention this useful service life because it’s only possible with routine, professional maintenance. Maintenance allows us to inspect, clean, and adjust anything necessary while alerting you to potential repair needs.
This service should be done at least once a year–twice if you have a year-round heat pump–and although we typically recommend AC tune-ups in the spring, it’s never too late to have it done. If you haven’t scheduled AC maintenance in the last year, now is the time to give us a call! In the meantime, read on as we uncover some of the biggest benefits of professional AC maintenance.
Maintenance Prevents Future Repair needs
As your air conditioner works to keep you and your family comfortable throughout the summer months, it accumulates wear and tear. During maintenance, our professionals look for this, and if that wear and tear is resulting in a small repair need, we’ll let you know right away so you can get that on your schedule.
Catching small problems early like this helps you to avoid larger issues down the line. As a result, maintenance allows you to avoid up to 85% of the repair needs your system might ever need.
Maintenance Increases AC Efficiency
Routine maintenance improves the overall energy consumption of your system. As it accumulates grime and dirt over the years in addition to the above-mentioned wear and tear, it’s not able to work as efficiently as it once did.
In fact, it’s estimated that for every year you skip AC maintenance, that system loses about 5% of its efficiency. However, with maintenance, the system can retain about 95% of its efficiency.
Maintenance Extends the System’s Lifespan
Another benefit of routine AC maintenance is that it improves the overall lifespan of your air conditioner. On average, an air conditioner can last about 10-15 years if it’s well maintained. But that number can be cut in half if it goes without maintenance!
Improved Air Quality
When your air conditioner is cleaned on a regular basis, you will see better indoor air quality in your home. This is especially true if you have routine duct cleaning done every couple of years as well.
