Are you starting to feel the warmer weather? It’s officially spring now, and although we don’t have any guarantees that there won’t be a cold snap in April (which can be a disappointing month), we’re definitely on the movement toward the summer and the time when our ACs will start their regular mid-year duties.
We know you’re probably ready for warm weather. But have you asked yourself if your air conditioner is? An AC does plenty of work to cool down your home during the summer, and unless it gets the proper TLC from professionals, it may let you down.
In other words, it’s time to arrange for your annual air conditioning maintenance appointment with Dowd Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning.
Maintenance Is a Spring Essential
Regular AC maintenance is necessary each year to ensure you get the best from your cooling system and prevent problems that can lead to higher costs and comfort interruptions. Although there’s no expiration date for maintenance as long as it’s done annually, we strongly recommend having it done in spring because it gets the AC system ready in time for the summer heat and lets you get the most benefits from the service.
Why is it so important to have AC maintenance? Here are some specific reasons:
- It’s the best way to fend off a surprise system breakdown right in the middle of the summer. An AC deals with the most strain on hot days, and that can lead to full failure for a system that’s suffering from maintenance neglect.
- Maintenance prevents the majority of repairs that an air conditioner may need over its service life.
- You’ll keep the warranty current on an air conditioner with maintenance. Missing maintenance may void the warranty, and that can end up costing you plenty later on.
- Routine maintenance keeps an AC’s energy efficiency from a rapid annual decline that will cause your energy bills to rise. You can expect your air conditioner to retain 95% of its original efficiency until close to the end of its service life thanks to maintenance.
- An air conditioner will enjoy a longer service life because of maintenance. The estimated equipment life for an AC takes into account maintenance, so without this regular service you may see your air conditioner’s life reduced to half!
