Why Spring is the Best Time For an AC Maintenance Checkup
Did you know you could improve the efficiency of your air conditioning unit and avoid the need for pricey repairs by getting an AC maintenance checkup at least twice a year? With springtime in full swing, and the summer heat just around the corner, now’s the time to have a professional AC technician give your air conditioner a boost. Learn how you can benefit by scheduling an AC maintenance checkup today.
Why Does My AC Need Maintenance?
Think about your car and the way that it works. When the tread on your tires gets dull or you wait too long for an oil change, your car doesn’t run as well as it does after a trip to the auto shop. You’ll see your gas mileage decreasing, the ride isn’t as smooth, and overall, you’re just not getting the most out of your vehicle. While you may have your car serviced regularly, you know it’s especially important to do so before taking a long road trip, or whenever you’re going to be asking a little more from its performance.
Similar rules apply to your air conditioner. Routine maintenance, which includes cleaning, a tuneup, testing of all equipment and more, helps your AC unit run at peak performance. And, right before summer, when your AC is going to be working extra hard to keep you cool, these factors are even more important.
Benefits of AC Maintenance
You probably get the big picture by now: regular maintenance = higher efficiency. So here’s a more detailed look at how you’ll benefit from a maintenance checkup this spring:
Less energy use – The better your AC is running, the less energy it will use to keep your home cool. Over time, dust and other debris can build up in your system, causing clogs and slowing down airflow. With a thorough cleaning of your AC unit, your system will require less energy, which is good for both the environment and your energy bill.
Improved indoor air quality – The air inside your home may be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander and other pollutants built up in your air conditioner don’t help that ratio. However, routine maintenance can help to reduce the buildup of harmful particles in your home’s air, improving your air quality and your health.
Your AC unit will last longer – The average lifespan of a heating and cooling system is around 10 to 15 years, but you may find yourself on the lower end of that range by skipping regular HVAC maintenance. Think about your car again. The better you take care of it, the more miles it’ll get. Technicians performing maintenance checkups will also test your equipment to look for things that may cause problems in the future. This way, they can solve the problem early on before it develops into something more serious and costly.
