We all know that air conditioning systems don’t come cheap—and not just because of the initial price. An air conditioner has so many mechanical and electrical components that it can occupy over half of your total energy bill. You can save money by upgrading to a new system—but this is probably unnecessary in your case. Instead, we recommend that you join an annual maintenance plan so that you can save on your energy and repair bills year after year.
The Benefits of Maintenance
Air conditioning maintenance is a service provided by most AC technicians that usually involves 3 important steps: a thorough inspection of the entire unit, cleaning the dirtiest components (like the outside coil), and making a few adjustments. Here’s how this helps your system.
- Improved performance – Your air conditioner declines in performance year by year, but an annual maintenance visit helps to keep everything running smoothly so that, with just the right adjustments, it’s unlikely that you’ll need any more repairs in a normal cooling season.
- Greater efficiency – When the parts can run smoothly, they do not require nearly as much energy to run.
- Longer lifespan – Perhaps the biggest reason to schedule maintenance and get on a regular maintenance plan is that it can actually extend the life of your unit. That’s right; you can keep your system for months or even years longer with just a short visit from a technician each year.
Regular Visits Maintain the System for Life
Joining a maintenance program includes many benefits. Your technician will call to remind you about your membership and to schedule an appointment, so that you don’t have to remember to make the call each time you need a maintenance visit. Most maintenance programs involve a yearly fee that includes 1 – 2 maintenance visits per year as well as additional maintenance membership perks like priority service.
