The Importance of AC Maintenance Services

ac-technicianWe may not be seeing a whole lot of warmth right now, or at all, but this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be making sure that your air conditioner is ready for summer. Getting this done in spring is a great idea since it means you’ll avoid any interruptions in service when things do heat up.

If you haven’t scheduled your maintenance appointment for your air conditioner just yet, we encourage you to do so soon. While some people might not think it is worth their time, we can assure you that maintenance is going to make a huge impact on your comfort and your cash flow when it comes down to the wire this summer.

If your curious as to why, we can break it down for you.

Why Not Wait for Repairs?

Far too many people think they don’t need to schedule maintenance because they can simply wait for a repair need to pop up. We are sorry to say this will actually cost you more cash rather than helping you save it. Think of it this way: is it a lower cost to bring your car in for a yearly oil change, or is it better to wait for the “Check Engine” light to tell you there is an issue?

Maintenance is going to be a yearly appointment, yes, but it will be far less costly than waiting for a repair need to appear.

How Maintenance Helps Your AC

So, what does maintenance do to help your Portland air conditioner operate more effectively come summer? By addressing any and all minor issues within your cooling unit, such as loose screws, sealing up small duct leaks, checking on refrigerant levels and more, a thorough and professional maintenance appointment will provide the following benefits:

  • Energy Efficiency: When you have maintenance done yearly on your AC, it is going to maintain a better level of energy efficiency, rather than losing a certain percentage of it every year.
  • Lifespan: Because maintenance will help to reduce the impact that your system feels after a full season of use, it is also going to help it have a longer lifespan. Rather than barely lasting 10 years, it is more likely to make it to a full 15 years before it needs replacement.
  •  Cost: With better energy efficiency and improved operational effectiveness your air conditioner will be able to keep you cool a lot more easily, which means it won’t need to use as much energy to do its job. This translates into more reasonable utility bills throughout the summer.

Even just one of these benefits is going to make a huge impact on the comfort that you will enjoy in your home. Plus it will reduce the frequency and cost of any repairs that you do need to schedule in the future. Make sure to schedule your service before the summertime heat arrives.
