Maintenance is the most important factor in the lifespan and efficiency of your air conditioning equipment. Many repair calls we see could have been prevented with proper maintenance. Annual maintenance comes with many benefits that include:
Better Indoor Air Quality
During your maintenance appointment, your system will be cleaned and dust and debris will be removed. Removing this particulate matter from your system will stop it from circulating in the air, making the air healthier and more breathable.
Lower Cooling Costs
Maintenance restores your system to peak performance and efficiency. This means that your system will need to use less energy to keep your house comfortable. When you use less energy, you’ll see it reflected in your summer cooling bills. Oftentimes, the savings in cooling costs offset the price of maintenance.
Less Likely To Breakdown or Need Repairs
During your appointment, your HVAC technician will be able to fix any parts or pieces that have significant wear and tear and replace them before they break. This type of preventative maintenance helps homeowners avoid needing to call for repair services, or worse, emergency services because of a complete system breakdown.
Extend the Life of Your Cooling System
When you maintain your cooling system with annual maintenance, you’ll help keep it healthy. Just like if stay regular with your car maintenance your car will last longer, the same is true with your HVAC systems. Air conditioning units tend to last 15-20 years, but if you don’t maintain your system properly, you may need to replace your unit sooner than that.
