With summer just a few months away, the season of the air conditioner (AC) is looming. In the sweltering summer months, people rush to switch on their AC for relief from the heat, with nearly 90% of U.S. households using air conditioning in 2020. And we don’t blame them – nothing beats the feeling of stepping out of the scorching sun into a well-cooled room. That being said, to cool a room, you first need to ensure your AC is working optimally. Even though ACs may be one of the most used appliances, most people don’t keep them maintained by calling a technician. And let’s not forget heating either, as winter can be just as demanding on AC units as the summer. As the most trusted HVAC company in the Westchase area, EasyBreezy AC has seen it all when ACs break down or are damaged due to accidental negligence. To help you make the (right) decision of calling the professionals to ensure your AC is in tip-top condition, we’ve listed the benefits you can receive by calling in the AC techs before summer rolls around.
Regularly scheduling maintenance on your ACs can avoid large-scale breakdowns by catching minor repairs early and keeping them from escalating. The relatively minor cost of servicing could very well save you from a major repair bill in case of a breakdown, so don’t save a few cents to spend a lot of dollars later. This leads to better longevity of your AC unit – as a relatively expensive investment, you will want to ensure it lasts a while.
In most cases, AC units with regular maintenance work tend to run more efficiently, drawing less power to provide the same amount of cooling as those without. In most cases, this power efficiency is better for the environment, while it can also help to optimize your electricity usage and lower your power bill. Whether servicing an HVAC unit to better cool or heat an area, maximizing its efficiency is key to lower utility bills while also ensuring the unit doesn’t overwork to provide the cooling or heating.
The environment can take its toll on your AC unit, especially those with outdoor units. This is primarily a concern for those living near water bodies that contain excessive salt and minerals, such as oceans. Salt can make its way into the unit and cause corrosion which, once built up enough, will lead to your AC breaking down and likely a costly repair or, in the worst conditions having to replace the AC entirely.
Regular cleaning and maintaining your AC and its filter can ensure that it properly filters dust and other particles to ensure that the air being cooled or circulated is as clean of contaminants as possible. This can be especially important in households with people who suffer from respiratory problems or allergies.
Properly and regularly maintaining your AC can ensure it holds its value, should you desire to re-sell it in the future. ACs that run optimally and look good can fetch a better price in the second-hand market, so if you think you would like to sell your AC in the future, invest in regular servicing to ensure
Make it a point to carefully read the fine print of your AC’s manufacturer’s warranty. Often, manufacturers require regular servicing by either their nominated technicians or certified companies to honor the terms of the warranty. Always stick to the guidelines given within the warranty to ensure you are covered in case of manufacturer defects and failures.
At the end of the day, all of the above benefits boil down to ensuring your AC is functioning at its optimum without breaking down. Once your AC is on a regular service schedule, you can rest easy knowing that you can enjoy the climate-controlled environment of your home or office without fear of breakdowns or costly repairs.
Based on our experience dealing with faulty or damaged ACs, we know that the above benefits are a given when it comes to regular maintenance, and the benefits outweigh the costs. Having your purchase work reliably for years to come is worth it.
So what’s next? Well, contact a trusted AC maintenance and servicing company to discuss the options available. They will usually have pre-built service packages that cover the main requirements of any AC unit, so it should be a relatively straightforward discussion. Once you’ve set up a service program, you don’t have to worry about remembering to call the company. The technicians will contact you when it’s time for the next service date.
