Does My AC Need Regular Maintenance?

Of all the appliances in your home, your AC is the one your family relies on most. Waiting until it breaks down to call a professional will only sacrifice your comfort and money. Regular maintenance is the only way to ensure your system is efficiently and effectively operating.

Why Does My AC Need Maintenance?

Your AC is responsible for your families comfort. Maintenance keeps your unit running it’s best and keeps you cool. Here are just a few reasons why preventative maintenance is so important:

Saves You Money

When you neglect to maintain your AC, it is no longer able to work properly. Dust and debris builds up in your ducts, making it much harder for air to reach you. Your AC then has to work harder to keep you comfortable. This wastes electricity and leads to higher utility bills.

Prolongs Your Unit’s Life

You regularly get maintenance on your car to ensure it runs longer, so why wouldn’t you do the same with your AC? When receiving regular preventative maintenance for your AC your technician will conduct a comprehensive examination on your entire system. This way they will be able to catch and fix any little problems that could turn into big headaches down the road. Maintaining your AC will ensure your unit is keeping you cool for years to come.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Your AC not only delivers cool and refreshing air, but filters out any pollutants. If you neglect to get preventative maintenance on your AC, it will be no longer able to filter out harsh outdoor allergens and pollution from your indoor air. Regular maintenance means your AC can do its job and your family can breathe easy.
