You probably had your heating contractor service your furnace last fall, and there’s no reason not to have the same done for your air conditioner. Regular maintenance is important to maintaining the peak efficiency of your air conditioner. Without it, your A/C could lose five percent efficiency every year. This means higher bills for you, and potentially increased problems for your air conditioner.
Consequences of Inadequate Maintenance
Aside from efficiency loss, an ill-maintained air conditioner will be more prone to problems and will even have a shorter life. Routine care not only preserves but can even extend the lifespan of your A/C equipment. Smaller problems are often spotted during your springtime A/C tune-up. They can be quickly addressed before they mature larger and more expensive issues.
Advantages of Regular Maintenance
You can maximize the performance of your air conditioner and allow it to operate at peak efficiency. When your air conditioner is running smoothly, you’re getting the most effective energy use for your dollar. Moreover, regular maintenance and tune-ups can help you avoid expensive repairs.
There’s no reason not to have your air conditioner maintained at least once per year. If you do encounter problems, contact your heating and cooling contractor as soon as possible for a quick resolution. Having issues repaired promptly is another part of normal and proper A/C care.
