Regular air conditioning service helps keep your system running at optimal efficiency. But often, homeowners neglect to service their air conditioner annually. Unfortunately, units require regular service to function properly. Here are four reasons air conditioning service is essential:
1. Maintenance actually saves you money. A neglected air conditioning unit will inevitably break down at some point – often at a horribly inconvenient time, like on the hottest day of the year. Repairs can be costly and usually preventable through regular maintenance. In addition, the entire system will last longer if it has received regular preventative maintenance. Spending a little money each year may save you a bundle in the long run.
2. Your air conditioner loses efficiency each year. Regular service will keep it at optimum efficiency. Going without service will result in substantially higher power bills. An air conditioner that is not efficient is unable to cool your home effectively on the hottest days of the summer.
3. Skipping maintenance may actually void your warranty. In order to maintain your warranty, perform regular maintenance on the air conditioning unit. Maintain a list of all service dates with your warranty paperwork.
4. Protect your health! Clean filters and coils will prevent air quality concerns. Neglecting maintenance can allow mold and bacteria to grow and cause respiratory distress in individuals with asthma and allergies.
Remember, have your air conditioning unit thoroughly cleaned and properly serviced at least once per year. Many people choose to have it maintained in the spring to ensure that it is ready to work through the hot summer months. Contact us today to schedule your maintenance appointment!
