Here's Why Your Air Conditioner Needs Maintenance Before Summer

You might only turn on your air conditioner during the summer, but routine maintenance throughout the year is important if you want to protect your HVAC system and ensure your family's comfort at all times.

Annual summer air conditioner tune-ups are just one part of what the pros call "preventative maintenance", a term that encompasses regular cleanings, repairs and ensures you don't ever pay more than you have to for heating and cooling.

Before the next heat wave rolls into town, consider calling us and scheduling an air conditioner unit cleaning and maintenance call. Here are just a few reasons you'll be glad you did.

You’ll Save Money in the Long Run

Preventative air conditioner maintenance doesn't just make sure your system lasts as long as possible. With routine care, your system will always run like new, which means it won't take more energy than necessary and leave you with a massive utility bill.

Many air conditioning units run well even with problems, but their energy consumption drastically increases as they work harder to provide you with the same cooling as always. You can prevent this from happening by having a licensed technician take a look at your system, give it a good cleaning, and catch any needed repairs before they cause trouble.

Stay Safe Inside Your Home

Weather changes outside affect your system indoors; without proper maintenance, a drop in temperature could result in cracked pipes or damaged parts that lead to a carbon monoxide leak or leaks that cause mold growth.

An unmaintained air conditioner is a major health hazard, so be one step ahead of the game by scheduling routine servicing.

Enjoy Fresher Air Year-Round

Pesky pollen and seasonal allergies are no match for a well-maintained air conditioner. If you or a family member has allergies, you need to make sure that you aren't inadvertently worsening them with a dirty air filter.

A technician can even recommend a higher quality filter that catches more particles and contaminants, ensuring that you'll always be able to breathe easy inside.
