4 Reasons to Plan Ahead and Schedule AC Maintenance

Have you scheduled AC maintenance yet this year? If not, you should consider scheduling your AC maintenance appointment now. It’s so easy to put off AC maintenance in Portland and think that you can just do it later. 

But we encourage you to go ahead and prioritize this service while you are thinking about it. You can also keep reading to learn more about why it is important to schedule AC maintenance proactively instead of waiting for something to go wrong inside of your air conditioner.

Prevent a Future Breakdown

The top reason to prioritize AC maintenance is that doing so can mean you won’t have a major breakdown later on. Prioritizing maintenance all along is the best way to care for your air conditioner and catch problems early. When you put off maintenance, extensive repairs are more likely to pop up. 

Save Money

If your AC unit breaks down completely, the bill is likely to be much more expensive than if you had just scheduled maintenance sooner. Making small repairs all along to your air conditioner will be more affordable than having to address a total breakdown or a more serious AC repair. Sure, AC maintenance does cost money. But the costs of maintenance are much less than the costs of overhauling an entire air conditioner because something major goes wrong.

Energy Efficiency

Prioritizing maintenance is also the best way to ensure that your unit remains energy efficient both now and across the rest of its service life. Making small tweaks to the unit all along to keep it operating efficiently is going to help you save money on energy costs. Sure, you can set your thermostat a little higher or turn off the unit completely when the weather is nice. 

But none of these things will matter if you are not taking care of your air conditioner to begin with. Without regular maintenance, you are likely to lose some energy efficiency year after year, causing your energy costs to increase a little at a time. Small costs can add up quickly. 

If you lose enough efficiency to cost you just $15 more per month, you’re spending nearly $200 more per year to keep your home comfortable. Since AC maintenance boosts energy efficiency, you could actually save more than you’re currently spending.
