Now that the seasons have finally changed, there’s probably no shortage of spring cleaning and home improvement projects on your list. Hopefully, preventative maintenance for your AC unit is part of it. This service should be done twice a year, and it’s a worthwhile investment even if you haven’t experienced any problems with the system. To better understand why, consider the following.
Why Schedule a Spring AC Preventative Maintenance Service Call?
1. Improved Efficiency
During an AC preventative maintenance service call, a heating and cooling contractor will examine the system for any underlying issues. Common concerns that can arise during winter include loose or broken components, leaks, or improper configurations. Addressing these situations will ensure the unit runs optimally during the hotter months and prevents costly problems that lead to higher power consumption, such as short-cycling or running longer than usual.
2. Financial Savings
An optimally running HVAC system ultimately saves money. It permits the system to provide more cooling capacity while using less electricity. This lowers energy consumption and, thus, your utility bills.
The reduced usage of your AC system also leads to less wear on the its components. As a result, it also saves you money by minimizing the number of repairs you may need in the future.
3. Ensure Longevity
Having a heating and cooling contractor check and address small problems early on prevents them from worsening. Like any appliance or home feature, minor issues are easier and more affordable to repair.
If neglected, they can cause further damage to other components, which may require expensive replacements. In worst-case scenarios, you could even need to replace the entire unit. Therefore, booking a preventative maintenance service call after winter passes saves you both time and money.
