3 Advantages of Preventative A/C Maintenance
September 7, 2018Back to All Articles
An effective air conditioning system is essential, especially during the hot summer months.
Failing to have your air conditioning system maintained on a regular basis can end up costing you more money in the long run. Lack of maintenance means that problems won’t be detected, and this could cause your unit to break down and result in irreparable damage where you’d end up buying an entirely new system.
Let’s take a look at 3 other advantages to preventative A/C maintenance:
1) It prevents costly damage to components
You should have your air conditioning unit maintained at least twice a year. Your technician will pick up any small problems that could later become more serious and cost you more money in the long run.
Major and expensive A/C problems are often due to a lack of maintenance and can easily be avoided with regular maintenance.
2) Maintenance keeps your energy bill low
When you don’t have your air conditioner maintained, the parts experience wear and tear, and they will have to work harder to perform the same job. This results in your A/C unit using more power, and you can expect to see a spike in your energy bill.
The cost of an increased energy bill due to lack of A/C maintenance is often much more than a maintenance check itself!
3) Regular maintenance improves air quality
When your air conditioning unit is maintained, the technician will clean the system and remove mold, dust, dirt, and allergens from the piping and ducts.
If this is not done, the air quality in your building can become quite poor and cause residents or employees to develop worsened allergies, respiratory problems, and other health issues.
These are just a few reasons to have your air conditioning system maintained every few months and it is actually cheaper than you think!
