Think of your air conditioner as you would your car. You rely on your vehicle for transportation, and in order to keep it running better for longer, you make sure it gets oil changes, tire rotations, tune-ups, and other manufacturer-recommended maintenance when it reaches certain milestones. Failure to do so, and it would likely run poorly, cost more to repair and need to be replaced sooner.
Importance of AC Maintenance
You also rely on your air conditioner for something important – comfort. And like your vehicle, a lack of proper maintenance on your AC unit is the No. 1 reason for unexpected breakdowns. That said, ensuring the long-lasting effective and efficient operation of your air conditioner is the biggest benefit to it receiving routine maintenance and tune-ups. Here’s a look at some other key benefits.
Spending a little bit to annually have your air conditioner maintained can greatly offset the costs of regular emergency repairs and premature replacement. We like our customers to think of air conditioners as an investment, and regular maintenance is an ideal way to maximize the return that you can get from this investment.
A good AC tune-up involves a thorough inspection, cleaning, and repairs or adjustments on all of the components of an air conditioning unit. Following a tune-up, homeowners are likely to see a decrease in their energy bills, as their unit has been optimized to operate more efficiently.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Dirt, debris and other contaminants accumulate within the HVAC unit over time, which can eventually travel into the ductwork and disperse throughout your home. Hence, since maintenance on an AC unit involves a thorough cleaning, this debris is eliminated, thereby preventing it from circulating throughout your home. In some cases, however, a duct cleaning may be required to eliminate all contaminants.
Regular AC maintenance doesn’t just improve efficiency, but effectiveness as well. During a tune-up, air conditioners are modified so they operate to their full potential, which means a cooler home in a shorter amount of time.
