If you’ve ever read our blog, you might have seen us mention the importance of scheduling HVAC maintenance—we recommend this service in the spring for your air conditioner, and in the fall for your heating system, because these are right before you will need those systems the most.
However, more important than timing here is consistency. A traditional central air conditioner or central furnace should have professional maintenance done once a year, while a year-round heat pump system should be serviced every 6 months since it does double the work.
Since we’re almost done with the heating season and heading into the cooling season soon, we thought we’d talk about the benefits of a quality AC maintenance plan or agreement. Read on to learn more!
A More Reliable Air Conditioner
This is the #1 benefit of routine air conditioning maintenance that comes with being part of a maintenance program. The last thing you need this spring or summer is an air conditioner that is at risk of failing on days you need it the most.
During professional maintenance, our professionals will thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust the components that need it, all of which will reduce repair needs and make it a lot less likely that you’ll have surprise breakdowns.
Longer System Life
When an air conditioner is maintained as it should be, it should have a useful service life of about 10-15 years. This means that it will be able to work as efficiently and effectively as possible, for as long as possible. Without maintenance, however, that lifespan could be cut in half.
Year-Round Energy Savings
Over the years, your air conditioning system is going to accumulate natural wear and tear, and eventually, this adds up to a decline in cooling efficiency. On average, every year your air conditioner goes without professional maintenance, it loses about 5% of its efficiency.
On the contrary, an air conditioner that is routinely maintained will retain about 95% of its original efficiency rating (SEER—Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio)!
