Here are some reasons to schedule air conditioning maintenance:
- To increase energy efficiency and reduce costs
- To extend the lifespan of your AC unit
- To ensure AC filters stay clean
- To improve the performance of your cooling system
Regular air conditioner maintenance can optimize the performance of your system. That means it uses less energy and may lower your bill. In addition, having your system maintained regularly can help your air conditioner last longer. While a replacement AC is sometimes needed, regular maintenance can help your existing unit run for as long as possible. Many air conditioners have filtration systems, which should be professionally cleaned. Your HVAC pro can clean your AC filters as part of the maintenance process.
A well-maintained air conditioner can increase your home’s comfort level. When your AC works the way it should, your home stays at the temperature you want it. The temperature reading and setting on the thermostat should match. If they don’t, it’s time for a tune-up or repair. Annual maintenance can help you avoid repairs altogether or at least extend the time until you need one. A well-maintained AC unit can also potentially raise your home’s appraisal value.
