Air conditioners keep a home cool and comfortable all year long, no matter what it feels like outside. Unfortunately, though, even the best air conditioner is going to need servicing from time to time.
Neglecting regular maintenance and tune-ups can cause an air conditioner to break down unexpectedly, leaving you and your household uncomfortable. With regular care, an air conditioner’s lifespan can sometimes be increased. For all of these reasons, why not get your AC unit set up on a regular schedule of professional maintenance and care? You’ll find that doing so comes with many excellent benefits.
Avoid Unexpected Air Conditioning Failures
As mentioned, when air conditioners aren’t cared for properly, they run the risk of breaking down unexpectedly. Breakdowns like this can happen for all kinds of reasons, such as part failure, inadequate refrigerant, or the unit just being overly dusty or dirty. What’s even worse is that these breakdowns sometimes occur at the worst possible times, such as when it’s very hot outside. Sitting in a too-hot home can prove dangerous for you and your loved ones. Plus, it’s just plain miserable!
Thus, to greatly reduce the likelihood of an out-of-the-blue breakdown and the likelihood that you’ll have to pay for emergency or after-hours service, have your unit cared for on a regular basis.
Save Money in the Long Run
People give all kinds of reasons for not getting their air conditioners serviced regularly. But, one of the most common is that they can’t afford it or that they don’t want to spend the money. What these people often don’t realize, however, is that regular air conditioner care can actually save them money in the long term. To start with, properly serviced air conditioners often run more efficiently. That means they consume less energy and you pay less in electricity costs!
Also, air conditioners that are well-cared for are a lot less likely to break down and can generally last quite a bit longer than air conditioners that are just left to their own devices. Furthermore, catching and fixing small problems early on can often prevent much more serious problems from developing in the future. Thus, paying the affordable costs for routine maintenance can keep you from having to shell out the big bucks for major repairs or from fully replacing your air conditioner in the near future.
Enjoy Improved Air Quality
When an air conditioning unit is not cleaned and serviced regularly, tiny particles of dust and debris may start to build up inside the unit. Eventually, these particles can find their way into the air you breathe, which can prove bad for your lungs and your overall health. Poor air quality can also worsen symptoms of asthma, allergies, and more. Plus, it can make the entire home feel dusty and not-so-fresh, which is the last thing homeowners want. Thus, know that, when you have your air conditioner serviced, you’re really helping your entire household to breathe more clearly. What could be more worthwhile than that?
Benefit From More Effective Cooling
People often don’t notice that their air conditioners aren’t working quite as well as they once did. This is because, typically, an air conditioner’s functioning declines gradually over time. Professional maintenance, though, can set it right again and ensure the air conditioner works to the best of its ability.
Even if you’re lucky enough that the entire unit doesn’t break down, who wants to feel hot and stuffy even with the AC on? Don’t settle for a less comfortable home than you deserve. Keep your air conditioner in good shape so you can enjoy perfect comfort at all times.
What to Expect from a Service Visit
While every AC servicing visit will be a bit different, most consist of:
- General cleaning
- Thermostat calibration
- Electrical inspection
- Checking of coolant and coolant addition when necessary
- Duct inspection
Of course, any specific concerns or issues should be reported to the technician. That way, in addition to offering general service and care, they can discover what’s causing your issues and find a solution.
As you can see, a simple maintenance visit can accomplish quite a lot and is absolutely vital for ensuring a comfortable home. Thus, don’t delay in setting your AC unit up on a regular maintenance schedule.
